Stridzie Dni, Kedy Neradno Po Slnka Zapade Vychadzat, Ni Peri Drapat

Malokarpatan

Band/Artist: Malokarpatan

Album: Stridzie Dni

Ked denné svetlo sa kráci
a v chotári započne prituhovat
strigy létajú po tmavém nebi
Pozor treba dávat
aby kravám v maštali nepočarovali
či vodu v studni neotrávili
Práskaní bičem a trúbení
na krížne cesty ich odžene
Cesnakem treba dom i stajne potret
Však len ten, čo na stolku smrekovém sedzí
bosorky za oltárem v kostele uvidzí
Lepší pri krbe sedzet a z trúnku upíjat
Za stridžích večerov, ked zlé sily
nad zasneženým krajem karpatským sa ženú

English:
WITCHING DAYS, WHEN ONE OUGHT NOT TO WALK OUT AFTER SUNSET, NOR TUG THE FEATHERS
When the daylight shortens
and it gets chilly inside the bounds
witches fly in the sombre sky
One needs to take care
for the cows not to get bewitched in the barn
and the water not to get poisoned in the well
Cracking of whips and blowing of horns
drives them away to the crossroads
One needs to inunct the house and barns with garlic
But only he who sits upon the spruce stool
can see witches behind the church altar
It's better to sit beside the fireplace
and drink spirits
On witching evenings, when evil forces
roam over the snowcovered carpathian land.
