Još sam bio sasvim mlad
neke barske ptice sam lovio tad,
kad je došla da se kupa
lepa protina kći.

Nije znala gde sam ja
da je gledam krišom kroz trsku i šaš.
Preko reke noć je pala
kao plašt.

I mesec bdije nad vrbakom,
srebri nebom zvezda roj,
a kapi vode kao biseri
koji blistaju svud po njoj.

O srce ludo, ludi sni,
već se moji drugovi momčili svi,
a ja sam hteo samo jednu
lepu protinu kći.

Čudnom pesmom, zvoni drum,
te su zime svatovi došli po nju,
izdaleka, neki svet
za mene tuđ.

I baš sam prošao sokakom,
padao je prvi sneg.
I još ponekad zazvone praporci
što me odnose ko zna gde.

Da se ženim imam kad,
ja sam eto, ostao momak do sad
i nikad više nisam sreo
lepu protinu kći.

Jedan život miran, tih,
nekad bacim kartu il’ napišem stih,
stvari teku
ja se držim izvan njih.

I ljubim dobre, ljubim lake
neke prave, a neke ne,
i sve su vile, ma sve su kraljice,
i sve su nevažne naspram nje.

English Translation

The Beautiful Priest’s Daughter

I was still very young
hunted some bog birds at the time,
when she came to bathe
the beautiful priest’s daughter

She didn’t know where I was
that I watched her stealthily through reed and sedge
Night fell over the river
like a cloak

And the moon watches over willow field
swarm of stars silvers in the sky
and water droplets like pearls
that shine all over her

Oh crazy heart, crazy dreams,
all my friends had already had girlfriends
but I wanted only one
the beautiful priest’s daughter

Odd song rings on the road
that winter, a wedding crowd came for her
from far away, some people
strange to me

And I just walked down the street,
the first snow was falling
And still sometimes bells jingle
that take me who knows where

To get married I have time
So I remained a bachelor till now
and I never saw again
the beautiful priest’s daughter

One life peaceful, quiet
I sometimes throw cards or write a verse
life goes on
I stay out of it

And I kiss good ones, easy ones,
some right ones, some not
and they are all fairies, well they are all queens
and they are all irrelevant compared to her
