Lyrics

Sumartonek, al’ si lipi zeleni,
z belim cvetjem ves si ti zasajeni,
Sumartonek, al’ si lipi zeleni,
z belim cvetjem ves si ti zasajeni.

Sumartonek, al’ si lipi zeleni,
z belim cvetjem ves si ti zasajeni.
V Sumartonu tri so fajne divojke
koje so mi srce z mesta gibnule.
Prva klinčec, druga szegfü – majoran,
tretja derži druge dečke: se zavman.

Z Sumartona v Serdahelj je peli put
kud se šeće moj golubek mnogo put.
Kupil sam ti grličica dundeka
kaj buš znala da si mene lubila,
jišće k tomu svakovego pantleka
koj si ga boš na dundek svezivala.
