Banda zasvirala, draga zaplakala,
Banda zasvirala, draga zaplakala.
„Ne plač, mila, draga, ne daj srcu jada,
Dosti ćeš plakati kad u logor pojdem.
Onda me se, draga, budeš nadejala,
Dok (s) suvog javora jabuka opadne.
Koga buš sretala, toga buš pitala:
„Jeste vidli, ljudi, mojega dragoga?“
„Jesmo ti ga vidli na rastovom kolu,
Njegva mudra glava pod bregom krvava.
Njegve žute lasi vetrić raspuvava,
Njegve crne oči vrane raskluvale.
Njegva britka sablja pod bregom hrđuje,
Njegov vranić konjić na bregu s'rzuje.
Njegva stara majka kod kuće splakuje,
Njegva verna ljuba po krčmaj stancuje."
Her sweetheart was recruited and she was saying farewell at the station. When the band began to play, she began to cry.
“Don’t cry my dear, my love. You will cry well enough when I don’t return
from war, and when you hear about the terrible way I died.”
