Sivo mi sokle preleta


(A song about the voivode Ivan Naumov - Aljabako)
Sivo mi sokle preleta


Sivo mi sokle preleta, mori devojko,
od tova selo Belica,
niz tova selo Oraovec, mori devojko,
nad Ivanovite, lele, dvorove,
niz tova selo Oraovec, mori devojko,
nad Ivanovite, lele, dvorove.

Crno mi pismo donese, mori devojko,
do Ivanovite dvorove.
Vo pismoto pishuvashe, mori devojko,
deka go Ivan, lele, ubile;
Ivana - toj Aljabako - mori devojko,
vo tova selo, lele, Belica.

Koga go chula devojka, lele devojka,
belo go chevre iskina,
ubav mi gergef iskrshi, lele devojko,
krvavi s`lzi, lele, proroni,
ubav mi gergef iskrshi, lele devojko,
krvavi s`lzi, lele, proroni.
