  1. // Snošti rekoh da ti dojda //
    // na taja sladka večera, na tova vino cârveno
    ludo mlado bre.//

2. // Lošo vreme me zahvana, //
// sitna rosa zarosi, tiho veter poduna,
nemožeh da dojda. //

3. // Kakov junak ti de bideš //
// ot rosa da se uplašiš, kaj mene da ne dojdiš
ludo mlado bre? //

4. // Sladka večera ti napravih //
// rudo jagne pečeno, rujno vino cârveno,
[1. Schluss:] ludo mlado bre /
[2. Schluss:] abre budalo.

  1. “Last night I decided to come see you,
    for your beautiful dinner for your red wine.”
    [oh, you crazy guy]

2. “Bad weather prevented me.
A fine dew fell, a gentle wind blew,
I couldn’t come.”

3. “What kind of hero will you be that
dew scares you so much that you wouldn’t
come see me? Oh, you crazy guy?

4. “I made a beautiful dinner for you I baked baby lamb,
and fine red wine, [1st:]
Oh, you crazy guy! [2nd:]
Oh, you dunce!”

Here’s a modern recording, with lyrics quite similar to those above.
