Vinny wrote asking for help with a song…
My grandmother used to sing this Czech song to my sister and I at bedtime. I am spelling out the sounds which is as close as I can come. I think it is about chocolate.
Ovra nazi zeem abeela
Ona samu leebeela
Vashee la mu chi chi (“i” sounds like “eye”)
Vashee la mu chi chi
Thanks for any help!!
If anyone can help Vinny with the original lyrics and/or a translation, please let us know in the comments below.

I am from Czech republic, but I have never heard this song. I think, that it could be something like this (I am not sure):
Od rána zima byla There was cold from morning
Ona se mu líbila He liked her
Vařila mu čaj, čaj. She made tea for him
Čokoláda, černá káva. Chocolate, black coffee
Vařila mu čaj, čaj She made tea for him
Čokoláda – bum! Chocolate – boom!

Maybe this is the correct version:
Oba nazí, zima byla
Ona se mu líbila
Vařila mu čaj, čaj
Čokoláda, černá káva.
Vařila mu čaj, čaj,
Čokoláda – bum!

My last attempt:
O vánocích zima byla
Ona se mu líbila

I think it is a made up song. I agree the first line should be
O vanocich zima byla There was cold at Christmas

I have found this melody and maybe the made up song about chocolate and that song about coffee and sugar have something in common.
