My lovely medieval love song-Rekl Lasko Ma Ja Stunu
Song text in English (free translation)
Although I have a sleep without dreams,
last night I had a dream.
Though I haven´t been with him for a long time
the king himself gave visit to me.
REF: He said: I am sick, my love,
I´ve just been pretending my proud.
I´ll dismiss my throne because of you,
and jewels and cathedrals, too.
Although my days are usually tranquil,
today I have lost my way,
a precarious dream is teasing me.
and the king himself is teasing me.
