Ja izlezi Gjurgjo

(A song about the Demir Hisar voivode Jordan Piperkata)
Ja izlezi Gjurgjo - sung by Ace Petkovski

Ja izlezi, Gjurgjo,
ja izlezi, sestro,
ja izlezi, Gjurgjo, na pendjere,
aj, ja izlezi, Gjurgjo, na pendjere.

Da gi vidish, Gjurgjo,
da gi vidish, sestro,
da gi vidish, Gjurgjo, komitite,
aj, da gi vidish, Gjurgjo, komitite.

Kako odat, Gjurgjo,
kako odat, sestro,
kako odat, Gjurgjo, red po redum,
aj, red po redum, Gjurgjo, devet reda.

Napred odi, Gjurgjo,
napred odi, sestro,
napred odi, Gjurgjo, vojvodata,
aj, vojvodata, Gjurgjo, Jordan Piperka.

Pravo odat, Gjurgjo,
pravo odat, sestro,
pravo odat, Gjurgjo, za Pribilci,
aj, za Pribilci, Gjurgjo, kaj mudurot.

Da ja platat, Gjurgjo,
da ja platat, sestro,
da ja platat, Gjurgjo, veresijata,
aj, veresijata, Gjurgjo, trigodishna.
