Miroslav Válek - By Letters
(Po písmenku)

I'd weep, but I am not much frustrated
I'd care, but no baby is really mine
By letters this new song is created
It makes me drunk like a bottle of strong wine
The letters pour in massive quantity
But much more than contains the alphabet
Is amount of treason and perfidity
Oh well, there is no reason to look back
Everything is now so clear between us
Two many desertions, but too little love
Similar to a stone, our life is tough.
