lyrics: Radmila Mitrović
music: Damir Imeri


Мерак ми е да ти пеам
Цела ноќ јас до зори,
И со песна чаршија да кренам,
Скопје да се весели.

Ај, срце да ти заигра,
Ај, граби душата,
Ај, тебе да те опива,
Ај, мерак песната.

И цело Скопје чаршија да ечи,
Со мерак песна душа да си лечи.
И цело Скопје чаршија да гледа
От пусти мерак како не се бега!

Мерак ми е црно вино
Ноќва да те опие,
Граби срце да ти бие
Ноќва само за мене!


Merak mi e da ti peam
Cela noḱ jas do zori,
I so pesna čaršija da krenam,
Skopje da se veseli.

Aj, srce da ti zaigra,
Aj, grabi dušata,
Aj, tebe da te opiva
Aj, merak pesnata.

//I celo Skopje čaršija da eči,
So merak pesna duša da si leči.
I celo Skopje čaršija da gleda
Ot pusti merak kako ne se bega!//

Merak mi e crno vino
Noḱva da te opie,
Grabi srce da ti bie
Noḱva samo za mene!


How I want to sing for you all night until the dawn. And with song get the marketplace hopping, so Skopje can celebrate. Ay, may it make your heart start to dance, ay, it takes hold of your soul. Ay, may the passion of the song intoxicate you. And let the whole Skopje marketplace echo, with passionate song let the soul be healed. And let the whole Skopje marketplace see how you can’t escape from that passion! How I want red wine to make you tipsy tonight, to seize your heart and make it beat tonight only for me.
