Ordan sedi na kulata

(A song about the voivode Jordan Piperkata)
Ordan sedi na kulata - sung by Violeta Miteva & Ivan Uzunov

Ordan sedi na kulata,
Ordan sedi na kulata,
pa si gleda gore-dolu,
pa si gleda gore-dolu.

Mi dogleda silen asker,
mi dogleda silen asker,
silen asker, bashibozuk,
silen asker, bashibozuk.

Frli bomba vo seloto,
frli bomba vo seloto -
go zatrese seto selo,
go zatrese seto selo.

Izvikaja selanite,
izvikaja selanite -
Shto e ova od Ordana,
od Ordana Piperkata!

Ordan nosi chesno drvo,
Ordan nosi chesno drvo,
nego kurshum ne go dupi,
nego kurshum ne go dupi!

Ordan nosi chesno drvo,
Ordan nosi chesno drvo,
nego sabja ne go seche,
nego sabja ne go seche!
