Silen boj mi se zavrza

(A song Pitu Guli and Milan Gjurlukov)
Silen boj mi se zavrza - Sung by Aleksandar Sarievski

Silen boj mi se zavrza,
silen boj mi se zavrza
nad Krushevo, Mechkin Kamen,
nad Krushevo, Mechkin Kamen.

Em od pushki, em od bombi,
em od pushki, em od bombi,
jasno nebo se zatemni,
jasno nebo se zatemni.

Izvikna se Pitu Guli
na Milana daskalcheto:
- Oj, Milane, mili brate,
oj Milane, mili brate...

- Ja frli si teshki bombi,
ja frli si teshki bombi,
malce asker da rasterash,
mene patot da otvorish,
malce asker da rasterash,
mene patot da otvorish!
