    Re: You live only once.

    Thank you for the song, I like it. I'll check if there are songs in other languages for that topic.

    Re: You live only once.

    I know two such sentences in Polish, unfortunately, I can't say which one is idiomatic.

    Jedno jest życie. (Life is unique) [There's a song with this phrase in Polish, too. < -- Youtube link removed -- > ]
    Życie jest tylko jedno. (There's only one life)

    Though you might also say "Żyje się raz" (One lives only once)

    I just want to make some corrections, I was new on this forum when I wrote it and I was writing often thoughtlessly what firstly came into my head.

    The literal translation of Stejně jednou umřeme is Anyway, we'll once die and actually is less frequent on Google than Žijeme jenom jednou.
