A beautiful Macedonian traditional song, elegiac, dreamy and peaceful. The story is about a lady who thread heddles on a loom for weaving; and she is quietly crying; the storyteller asks her whether the loom or its parts are broken? She replies that neither the loom nor its parts are broken, but her darling is in a jail in Bitola (a city in Macedonia).


Марие, дилбер бела Марие, (х 2)
што кротко такеш ле, ем плачеш. (х 2)

Дал’ ти е разбојот расипан, (х 2)
ил’ ти е брдото скршено. (х 2)

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

Marie, dilber bela, Marie (x2)
shto krotko, tkaesh mori, em plachesh (x2)

Dal-ti e, razboyot rasipan (x2)
il-ti se nishkite skinati
il'ti e, b'rdoto sk'rsheno

Nit-mi e, razboyot rasipan (x2)
nit-mi se nishkite skinati
nit-mi e b'rdoto sk'rsheno

Tuk-mi e libeto daleku (x2)
vo taya kara more Bitola
vo tiya temni more zandani
