lyrics

Zv’jezda tjera mjeseca,
Za goru ga otjera.
//Za goricom vodica,
Na vodici curica,
B’jelo lice umiva.//

“Daj mi malo vodice
Iz te b’jele ručice!”
//“Ne dam, dragi, ni kapi,
Nek’ ti duša iskapi
Zbog sinošnje besjede,//

Zbog sinošnje besjede
I rumene jabuke.
//Drugoj daješ rumene,
Meni mladoj uvele—
Uvela ti duša ta!”//

***
A star was chasing the moon all the way beyond the hill. Beyond the hill was a little spring, and at the spring was a young girl washing her fair face. “Give me a little water from that fair little hand of yours!” “No, my dear, not a drop. I wish you’d just die (lit. may your soul drain out of you) because of last night’s party and a rosy apple. You gave another girl some rosy apples, and gave me withered ones. I hope your soul withers, too!”
