Common lyrics of Oddavac še budu with an English translation
Oddavac še budu,
I am getting married
Shouldn’t forget the wheat ears
Naspodok do lady
To the bottom of the chest,
ukladac ich budu.
I will lay them one by one.
Vtedy kvitky tarhaj
Do pick the flowers
ked še rozvijaju.
when they are blooming.
Vtedy mne, mamko, daj
Do let him take me, Mummy,
kedy mne pytaju.
when I am asked.
