Lada's true winter / LADOVSKÁ ZIMA

Translation: Petr Köppel


 

 

Snowflake by snowflake
falling on the stairs
a moment waiting
then it melts away
Josef Lada shakes
sitting on old chair
scenery painting
of wintertime play

Lada's true winter
through windows bites
and all hearts glitter
with nostalgy white
Lada's true winter
dragging sled on snow
children with titter
to mass with me go

Bim bam bim bam
bim bam bim bam
bim bam bim

That bloody white crap
falls on my neck
fourth month what the fuck
without a change
December stuck
I clean it in evening
in my back pain
and during next morning
damn it snows again
Bones quite frozen
that's no beauty
Children's sledging
is only from a duty
It's minus thirty
freezing like in hell
car doesn't make a sound
firm solid is motor oil by Shell
Cars single file
step-by-step
Road maintenance like
every year
very much surprised are they
that snow covered up
every highway
Pendolino train stays
somewhere close to Polom
it's got frozen
every CD-ROM
And the policemen?
Well hidden all they see
in gas station of BP

Lada's true winter
through windows bites
and all hearts glitter
with nostalgy white
Lada's true winter
dragging sled on snow
children with titter
to mass with me go

Bim bam bim bam
bim bam bim bam

Highway at Vysočina is closed in both ways
trucks were having there a really good race
the so called Summer Tyres Rallye
near Jihlava they did conduct
they hurried with mellons
and now they are f...
Well you know what
Czech TV broadcasts Late Night Snow
Voldanova on sled says hello
And in Prague calamity like at North Pole
Three centimeters of snow
At Museum even four
I look at far Říp
hill covered in white
I'm telling you: Forefather Czech
you had to do it out of spite
If you damn moron walked only
a few kilometers onward
I could have been right now
sunbathing as nice warm reward
Now you had better be afraid instead
of going shopping into Tesco
as on the flat roofs
there are such piles of snow

As if it wasn't enough
that we have frozen cheeks and noses
also from the radio
rebel Nohavica composes

Lada's true winter
through windows bites
and all hearts glitter
with nostalgy white
Lada's true winter
dragging sled on snow
children with titter
to mass with me go

Bim bam bim bam
bim bam bim bam
bim bam bim bam
