Prelude
Uz se vecer chyli
Co to robis, mládku?
Co ty, Jenufo
Dusa moya, Stevo, Stevusko
A tak bychom sli celym zivotem
Stevo, Stevo, já vim
Jak razem vsecko to Stevkovo vypináni schiplo
Prelude
Necham jeste dvere otevreny
Ba zabednena t tvoye okenicka
Tetko Koselnicko
Ale videl jsem vcházet sohaje
Co chvila ... co chvila
Mamicko, mam tezkou hlavu
Kdo to je?
Tot'zrovna jde!
Neni ti teskno, Jenufko?
Dej Buh stesti
Vidis Laco, já to tusila
A hen ... uz jsou tu!
To bylo nákeho
Chud'átko!
Jeste jesm tu já!
Vstante, testounka moja!
