    I like how Karel Gott sings "Byt Stale Mlad" (Forever Young)


    Is there anywhere on Internet where I could find the lyrics? I do know Czech and I understand a lot of the words, but not everything.
    I would also like to translate the Czech lyrics into English for my daughter, who likes this song but doesn't understand the words.
    If anyone can give me any advice, that would be great!!

    I've made a VERY ROUGH translation, just for my own use! Just wondering if I've made any major mistakes, if anyone cares to look through it....

    Time continues running its marathon
    Sometimes I feel older than it
    How many years have I already asked
    And I still know so little.

    And at other times, I feel like I've gotten younger
    Like that boy in front of the school fence
    Who at that time dreamed of his first kiss
    And of his first jeans.

    That boy desired and had a great objective
    He sang and lived fully and with great energy
    Possibly a bit of him still remained in me
    That sweet time will come back to me.

    Refrain: To be forever young, that's what I'd wish, to be forever young
    Resist once against all calendars
    Only youth, never old age
    To be forever young, I keep trying to be forever young
    Even in spite of these signs of time on my face
    To be forever young.

    As life went, I passed through lots of paths
    Now I can answer any test
    And I know that life is not only black and white
    It lives in many colors.

    But what of them I haven't yet tasted
    Everything I promised myself and then didn't accomplish
    What dreams I still have and so I go on
    Seeking the unfulfilled longing.
