Little Lady (Malá dáma)

English translation

Little Lady

She picked a grass blade and started playing
the little lady from the suburbs
who tells fortunes by reading palms
there ravenous cats wander at dawn
after nights full of vice
she caresses them and feeds them
at night she roams and sleeps by day
and her eyes have seen more than mine
I ran out of words, just standing there
this one girl I would die for
 
This one girl I would die for in a single day
and if you think that's not enough
among hundred women standing there
I'd ask her to dance though I never dance
 
Her den is there by the railway
she collects coins from fountains
then lines them up on a track
she builds her sanctuary, metal plates bridge
now being crossed by her first guest
let him rest
she has gone through hell yet knows wonders
she counts the flattened coins
and each who meets her falls for her
this one girl I would die for
 
This one girl I would die for in a single day
and if you think that's not enough
among hundred women standing there
I'd ask her to dance though I never dance
 
I will never forget that minute
her music reminded me of Paganini
that moment I knew to be cursed
asked her price with feeling of guilt
 
This one girl I would die for in a single day
and if you think that's not enough
among hundred women standing there
I'd ask her to dance though I never dance
 
This one girl I would die for in a single day
and if you think that's not enough
among hundred women standing there
I'd ask her to dance though I never dance
