A lilac branch grew out.

 
Under it sits pretty Juliana.

 
In front of her is an embroidery hoop of coral.

 
On the hoop is a silk scarf.

 
The scarf is embroidered in all kinds of threads.

 
Coko, Coko Crno Oko
        Hey, dark eyes
 
Hey darkeyes, red apple,
 
Go ask your mother if she'll give you to me.
 
My mother would give her house. She won't give me.
 
But I don’t want her house, I want you, my darling.

/ Dodji, Mile, u naš kraj pa da vidiš šta je raj. /
/ Hej, haj, u naš kraj pa da vidiš šta je raj. /
 
/ Prodje, Mile, propeva i volove protera. /
/ Hej, haj, propeva i volove protera. /
 
  Mile, come through our village
To see what paradise is like.
 
As mile was passing, singing,
Driving his oxen before him.
 


Što me Omilelo
        What has enchanted me?

Ti Momo, Ti Devojko
        Oh, my young girl

Ti Momo, ti devojko,
Ti moga brata Mamiš
Na tvoje gajtan veđe
Na tvoje oči smeđe.
 
Sam se je prevario,
Sam se je namamio
Na moje gajtan veđe
Na moje oči smeđe.
 
Ti Momo, ti devojko,
Ti moga brata Mamiš
Na tvoje belo lice,
Na tvoje vito telo.
 
Sam se je prevario,
Sam se je namamio
Na moje belo lice,
Na moje vito telo.
  Oh, my young girl.
You are wooing my brother.
By your braided eyebrows,
By your brown eyes.
 
He wronged himself,
He lured himself
With my braided eyebrows,
With my brown eyes.
 
Oh, my young girl.
You are wooing my brother.
By your fair face,
By your lithe body.
 
He wronged himself,
He lured himself
With my fair face,
With my lithe body.
