Moj dilbere

Moj dilbere, kud šećeš?
Haj što i mene ne povedeš?

Seni sendum, bir efendum,Aman jarabi!

Izvedi me u čaršiju,
Haj, pa me prodaj bazardžiji.

Uzmi za me oku zlata,
Haj, pa pozlati dvoru vrata.

My darling (translation)

My darling, where are you?
Why don’t you come to me?

What a horrible man-
Oh, Dear God!

He is taking me to the market
And selling me in the bazaar.

He sold me for a golden trinket
To hang on the door for decoration.
