Oj, bratia, mojo bratia,
po svete sa tratia.
Oj, jeden je v Kanade,
druhý pride zajtra.
Hej, rodina, rodina,
Hej, veľa rokov prejde,
kým sa ona zíde.
Slovak folk song from beginning of 20th century which talks about migrations of people to Amerika, seeking work and better life.
– Translation of the song –
Oh brothers, my dear brothers,
All over the world are wondering.
Oh, one is in Canada,
The second one is also pondering.
Oh family, family,
By the whole world we‘re separated.
Oh many years will go by
Before our reunion will be celebrated.
