A lyrical Macedonian traditional song about a woman who is longing for her beloved who is in jail. Having in mind that the song is probably composed during the Ottoman occupation of Macedonia, probably her boyfriend was a sort of rebel (vojvoda or komita or similar).


Марие, дилбер бела Марие,
што кротко такеш ле, ем плачеш.

Дал’ ти е разбојот расипан,
ил’ ти е брдото скршено.

Нит’ ми е разбојот расипан,
нит’ ми се нишките скинати
нит’ ми е брдото скршено,

Тук’ ми е либето далеку
Во таја, Кара, море Битола,
во тија, темни море зандани


from Pesnite Zvezdeni, released February 1, 2007
