Se sobrale komitite


(A song about the voivode Jordan Piperkata)
Se sobrale komitite - Sung by Vojo Stojanovski

Se sobrale komitite, /2
ke mi odat v Suvo pole. /2
Napred odi vojvodata, /2
vojvodata Jordan Piperka. /2

Ke mi fakjat meterizi, /2
ke go chekat Alil pasha, /2
shto ja grabil rusa Stojna, /2
rusa Stojna od Malo Cersko. /2

Progovara vojvodata: /2
- Aj da slezeme dolu v Brezovo, /2
da go venchame Alil pasha /2
za nevesta ostra sabja! /2


* meteriz - a turkish word meaning trap; zaseda
