Golemo chudo stanalo (Kriveni)


(A song about the Resen area voivodes Gero Resenski and Jonche Trajkov)
Golemo chudo stanalo (Kriveni) - Perform by the ensemble Resenchani from Rese


Golemo chudo stanalo
vo tova selo Kriveni,
vo tova selo Kriveni,
najgore kaj toj Nedana.

- Ej, more dete, kerata,
ovde li ima komiti?
- Da ne si neshto postranal
oti sum mlado svrsheno,
oti sum mlado svrsheno
v nedela mi e svadbata.

- Otvori, Nedan, keralot
da ti vidime gostite,
gostite Jonche krushjanche
i toj mi Gero vojvoda!

Ushte zborot nedorechen,
pukna mi pushka od Gera,
udri go Male onbashi
Maleta em Imamcheta.

- Ej, more, Gero vojvoda,
teslim stori ja pushkata,
teslim stori ja pushkata,
tebe te carot poprosil!

- Ej, more, Male onbashi
jas tebe teslim pushkata,
jas tebe teslim pushkata,
ti mene teslim glavata!
Jas tebe teslim pushkata -
ti mene teslim glavata!

keral (kiler) - cellar
onbasha (onbashija) - turcism: corporal, onbaşı
teslim - turcism: surrender
