lyrics

Janica devojka

Rani majka Janico devojko, mlado joj je Turkom obećala.
Kad je Anka velika narasla, po njo došli Turki graničari.
Po njo došli Turki graničari, graničari, Turki janjičari.
Zdalka je je majka opazila, a Janica još tri put z daljega.
„Oj, Janica, drago dete moje, obuči se što najlepše znadeš:
Crno svilo i pačalad beli, pa se legni u ladno komorko!“
Došli Turki k Janičine majke: „Dober večer, naša stara mati!
Dober večer, naša stara mati! Gde je Vaša Janica devojka?“
„Janica je zdravna umirala, ja jo nesem pokopati dala.“
To se Turku verovalo neje, na njo meče kačo jadovačo.
Kača puzi, ni vgristi jo neće, Janica se ni krecnoti neće.
Na njo meće to vatrico žarko; vatra gori, ni speći je neće.
Vatra gori, ni speći je neće, Janica se ni krecnoti neće.
Na njo meće svojo desno ruko, malo da se nasmejala neje.
Anku meće v šarene kočije, al' govori Janica devojka:
„Ta prokleta moja stara mati, koja me je Turkom obećala.“

Her mother promised her to the Turks when Janica was still little.
The day came when mother and daughter realised the Turks were coming to claim Janica.
Mother instructed Janica to play dead, but the Turks wouldn’t be fooled.
Janica is taken away in a fancy carriage, but she curses her elderly mother for selling her.
