lyrics

Ivanova ljuba

Šetala se Ivanova ljuba, gore dole po zelenoj bašći.
Svakomu je cvitu pripjevala, ponajviše stručku ružmarina:
„Ružmarine, moje rosno cviće, ti se cvateš, al sjemena nemaš,
Kano i ja, Ivanova ljuba - Ivu ljubim, a ja čeda nemam.“
To j' slušala Ivanova majka, pa je njojzi vrlo žao bilo.
Jedva čeka da večera dođe, da joj Ivo sa salaša dođe.
„Oj, moj Ivo, moj sine jedini, ljubu ljubiš, al' ti čeda nemaš,
Il' ne znadeš, il' za to ne haješ, kako tebe tvoja ljuba kune.“
To je Ivu vrlo žao bilo, pa on ide ljubi na čardake.
Ivo trže noža iza pasa, i udari ljubu po pojasu,
Kako ju je lako udario, na nože je čedo izvadio,
Zamota ga u bela maramu, pa ga meće sebi u džepove,
Pa ga nosi svojoj staroj majci:
„Evo ti majko, zelena jabuka kojoj nisi ni dozreti dala!“
I udari majku po srdašcu, kako ju je lako udario,
Sa crnom ju zemljom sastavio.

Another “cruel mother ballad” where scheming leads to three deaths:
the mother lies to her son that his wife was cursing him for still not bearing a child, and in his fury, Ivo stabs his wife with a knife, killing not only her but their unborn child.
Then, he stabs his mother in the heart for the tragedy inflicted by her lies.
