About "Fazuľa / Beans"
The text of this song reflects the timeless folk wisdom and traditions. It promotes the pillars
of healthy lifestyle, such as exercising with equipment, whole food nourishment, and correct
drinking regime. The closing stanza criticises poor repertoire of local musicians. That
certainly is not meant for our band.

Johnny, Johnny, my sonny
Learn how to dance well
Lead your valaška (shepherd’s axe) above your head
You’ll turn up a good man

They invited us to a feast
And prepared a chicken
They ate and drank alone
And gave us just beans

They invited us to a feast
And told us to sing
You, throat, won’t sing for free
You need to take a drop

And you, my sonny
Learn how to farm well
Put the plough into the scab
Show if you know how to make a furrow

They invited us to a feast
And told us to dance
And the band from hell
Couldn’t play anything for us
