lyrics

Bijeli grad i zmaj

Kod Širena grada bijeloga, tam veliko jezero bijaše.
Tam duboko jezero bijaše, zmaj nemili u njem prebivaše,
Što junake ždere oružane, još i dobre konje osedlane.
Strahovita ta aždaja biše, iz jezera glavu podizaše.
Strahovito pram gradu zvizdaše, cijelom gradu straha zadavaše.
A od jada i nevoje ove grad mu dava mita i darove.
Na dan ovcu i mladu djevojku, ne gledajuć ucviljenu majku.
A kada mu mita ne davaše - aždaja ga sama uzimaše.
Jer skakaše gradu na bedeme, čini padat mrtvim na stotine.

A reinterpreted shorter version of the “St. George and the Dragon“ ballad in which the lyrics follow the well-known story up to the point where the dragon gets all it demands from the people by
endless deadly threats.
