Ke te prasham, babo mori,

Dal me pitash, ago more,

Ni vojvodi beja, ago,
ni kumiti beja, /2
tuku mi se, ago more,
pusti apsandjii,
pusti apsandjii, ago,
od pusta Bitola.

Toj napred shto beshe, ago,

Leb jadoja, ago more,

pismo mu pristigna, ago,
od niven nachalnik. /2

Tamo da odaja, ago,
pushki da zemaja, /2
pushki da zemaja, ago,
pushki manliheri. /2
