lyrics

Проклет да биде, среќа да не виде
Кој прв започна,
Кој прв започна љубов да води
Две срца да страдаат.

Често со него се среќавам,
Срце ми трепери,
Срце ми трепери, душа не ми дава
Како да му прозборам.

Во Струмица на улица
Пред него излегов.
Грбот ми го сврте и тивко ми рече:
“Јас не те сакам.
Јас си заљубив друго либе,
Заљуби си и ти.”

Очи насолзени, срце натажено,
Отидов далеку.
Проклет да биде, среќа да не виде
Кој прв започна,
Кој прв започна љубов да води
Две срца да страдаат.

***

Proklet da bide, sreḱa da ne vide
Koj prv započna,
Koj prv započna ljubov da vodi
Dve srca da stradaat.

Često so nego se sreḱavam,
Srce mi treperi,
Srce mi treperi, duša ne mi dava
Kako da mu prozboram.

Vo Strumica na ulica
Pred nego izlegov.
Grbot mi go svrte i tivko mi reče:
“Jas ne te sakam.
Jas si zaljubiv drugo libe,
Zaljubi si i ti.”

Oči nasolzeni, srce nataženo,
Otidov daleku.
Proklet da bide, sreḱa da ne vide
Koj prv započna,
Koj prv započna ljubov da vodi
Dve srca da stradaat.

***
Cursed be the one, and may that person never know happiness, who first made love and caused two hearts to suffer. I would often run into him, and my heart would begin to pound, but I could never find a way to strike up a conversation. In Strumica on the street I stood before him. He turned his back to me and quietly said to me, “I don’t love you. I’ve fallen in love with another— you should find someone else.” With eyes full of tears, with an overburdened heart, I have gone far away. Cursed be the one...
