Mi sleze Dejan vojvoda


(A song about the voivode Dejan Dimitrov)
Mi sleze Dejan vojvoda - Sung by Kiril Mickoski, Ohrid


Niknala treva zelena,
mi razlistela gorata,
mi sleze Dejan vojvoda /
od slavna Slavej planina. / x2

Cela Deb`rca ja prosheta,
od ochi solzi prorona,
mnogu majki toj vide /
vo crno sè oblecheni. / x2

Edno mi pile doleta
na suva granka zastana,
zhalna mi pesna zepeja, /
od lugje nekje da bega. / x2

Shtom vojvoda go dogleda,
losha mu misla doleta,
trgna za Slavej planina /
kaj svoja verna druzhina. / x2

Ushte vo Slavej ne pojde,
v race kaj dzverovi ojde,
racete mu gi vrzaja, /
kaj Opcheli go frlija. / x2

Cela Deb`rca zazhali,
staro i mlado zaplachi,
deka mi Dejan zagina, /
mlad Dejan, silen vojvoda. / x2
