Common lyrics of Išol milý orac with an English translation
Išol mili orac,
iʃɔl mili ɔrats
My dear boy went plowing
uvadzil do plota,
uvadzil dɔ plɔta
and hit the fence when going.
prišol še me pitac,
priʃɔl ʃɛ mɛ pitats
He came to ask me: Darling, hey,
či to už sobota.
tʃi tɔ uʃ sɔbɔta
is it already Saturday?
Dzifčatko maš krasu,
dziftʃatkɔ maʃ krasu
Lassie, you are pretty,
trimaj ju do času,
trimaj ju dɔ tʃasu
so wait until you’re witty
nedaj ju chlapcom vzac,
ɲɛdaj ju xlaptsɔm vzats
keep your fairness from the boys
bo budzeš banovac.
bɔ budzɛʒ banɔvats
lest they toss you to their toys
I’d not cry a single tear
if it wasn’t for you, dear,
kebim ce, beťaru,
kɛbim tsɛ bɛcaru
For, you rascal, in my heart
love for you’s the biggest part.
