Versione ceca / Czech version / Version tchèque / Tšekinkielinen v...
From his empty violin caseVida prázdný futrál od houslí
he pulls his instrumentvytáhl nástroj ven,
and the case disappearsno a futrál byl fuč.
And he plays without bowA on hrál beze smyčce
a song with no wordspíseň beze slov,
and he wears a top hatzdobil jej cylindr,
but below there's no headvšak pod ním žádná hlava
and no neck and no bodyani krk ani hruď
no arms, no legsani ruce ani nohy,
he has lost them all in the waro to vše přišel on ve válce.
And all that remains is his songA tak zbývá pouze píseň,
only that still remainsona jen zůstala,
because also a top hatneb i ten cylindr
he has never owned.byla jen představa.
