Neli ti rekov sedi ne odi


(A song about Gjorgi Sugarev)
Neli ti rekov sedi ne odi

Neli ti rekov sedi ne odi,
bre Selim ago, bre, djanam,
bre Selim ago, bre!

Sedi ne odi vo Mariovo,
bre Selim ago, bre, djanam,
bre Selim ago, bre!

Vo Mariovo - ajduchka zemja,
bre Selim ago, bre, djanam,
bre Selim ago, bre!

Tamu mi ima loshi komiti,
bre Selim ago, bre, djanam,
bre Selim ago, bre!

Tamu mi sheta Gjorgija vojvoda,
bre Selim ago, bre, djanam,
bre Selim ago, bre!

Che ti ja zemi rusata glava,
bre Selim ago, bre, djanam,
bre Selim ago, bre!
