Za Vasil Chakalarov


(A song about the Kostur voivode Vasil Chakalarov)
Bojot pochna v Klisura - Performed by "Ohridski trubaduri" from Ohrid


Bojot pochna v Klisura,
Chakalarov bre!
Na kusoto jachmenche,
Chakalarov bre!
Makedonska moma zhnieshe,
Chakalarov bre!
Na kusoto jachmenche,
Chakalarov bre!

Ozdol ide Bahtijar Pasha,
Chakalarov bre!
So dvanaeset iljadi,
Chakalarov bre!
Bahtijar Pasha vikashe:
- Udzhun kardashlar!
A, Chakalarov vikashe:
- Dur be kjerata!

Chakalarov komanduvashe:
- Sardisajte go!
Sardisajte go, zhiv fatete go,
toa mrsno kuche obesete go!
Odnesete go gore v Smilevo
kaj kumitetot makedonski,
kaj kumitetot, kaj Dame Gruev.
