    Well done, Ondrej! My favorite was O, rebicku zahradnicky. What does that song title mean in English?

    Thank you.
    The name of the song uses the name of the flower Dianthus caryophyllus. (clove pink) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dianthus_caryophyllus

    I would translate the title song: "Oh, clove pink"

    Lyrics literally translated this:

    "Oh, clove pink
    Oh, the scented rose
    How I forget you
    When it's not possible
    How I forget you
    When it's not possible

    If I forget once
    People will remember me again
    You used to be more sincere
    When I followed you
    You used to be more sincere
    When I followed you"

    Thank you for your response. I am glad that the Czech folk reminds you of the roots of the family.
