Narode makedonski


(A song about the massacres in the village of Zagorichani done by Turks and Greeks)
Narode makedonski - Performed by the ensemble "Biljana" from Ohrid


Narode makedonski,
so kakvi idei si ti?
Dosta veke, razbudi se,
svesti se, ne spi ti!

Ne znaesh koj si, shto si
- drugi tebe znaat.
Stram golem e za tebe
sam da se ne znaesh.

Isklaja zheni, deca,
vo selo Zagorichani.
A, pred askerot turski
frl'ajte oruzhjeto.

Opinci dolgi nosat,
piskuli golemi,
fustani raskapani
em prazni patroni.

Kade e Karaivanov
i druzhinata mu?
- Melas Karavangelis,
v Bitola v zatvor e toj.
