Karanfile
        Karanfil

Karanfil se na put sprema i pjeva,
Aman, aman, na put sprema i pjeva,
A draga mu konja sedla i plače,
Aman, aman, konja sedla i plače.
 
Karanfile, cvijeće moje iz bašče,
Aman, aman, cvijeće moje iz bašče,
Ti odlaziš, mene mladu ostavljaš,
Aman, aman, mene mladu ostavljaš.
 
Ostavljam te tvojoj majci i mojoj,
Aman, aman, tvojoj majci i mojoj.
 
šta će meni tvoja majka i moja,
Aman, aman, tvoja majka i moja,
Aad ja nemam svoga dragog kraj sebe,
Aman, aman, svoga dragog kraj sebe?
  Karanfil prepares to travel and sings,
Oh, oh, prepares to travel and sings,
But his beloved saddles horse and cries,
Oh, oh, saddles horse and cries.
 
Karanfil, my flower from the garden,
Oh, oh, my flower from the garden,
You are going, leaving me young,
Oh, oh,, leaving me young.
 
I am leaving you your mother and mine,
Oh, oh, your mother and mine.
 
What are your mother and mine to me,
Oh, oh, your mother and mine to me,
When I don't have my beloved beside me,
Oh, oh, my beloved beside me?
