A strange lovesong:

                          * My Sweetheart *

Moj dilbere, kud’ se šećeš?
Aj, što i mene ne povedeš?
Aj, što i mene ne povedeš?
My darling, where do you betake yourself ?
Oh, why don't you lead me (there) too ?
Seni sendum,
bir efendum,
Aman jarabi!
(Turkish pribble-prabble:)
You ... one ... my lord
pardon ... oh God !
Povedi me u čaršiju,
Aj, pa me prodaj bazardžiji
Aj, pa me prodaj bazardžiji
Lead me downtown !
Oh, then sell me to the bazaar merchant !
Seni sendum,
bir efendum,
Aman jarabi!
(Turkish pribble-prabble:) ...
Uzmi za me oku zlata
Aj, pa pozlati dvoru vrata
Aj, pa pozlati dvoru vrata
Take for me an oka of gold !
Oh, then gild the door for the palace !
Seni sendum,
bir efendum,
Aman jarabi!
