Lyrics

Zakaj mene moje srce tak boli,
zakaj mene moje srce tak boli,
od žalosti nigdar nočko ne zaspi,
od žalosti nigdar nočko ne zaspi.

Zakaj mene moje srce tak boli,
od žalosti nigdar nočko ne zaspi.
– Poved’, golob, kakve imaš žalosti,
mortam nemaš z menom dosta radosti.
– N’ ovem svete nemam nigdi nikoga
niti oca, nit’ rođeno majčico.

Niti oca, nit’ rođeno majčico
niti k sebe svo povolno ružico.
Oca mi je hladna voda pobrala,
majku mi je črna zemla pokrila.
Raztopi se ‘hladen grobek zemlica,
kaj bom videl gde je moja majčica.
