lyrics

Jelka je zaspala

Jelka je zaspala na dunajskem bregu,
Jelka je zaspala na dunajskem bregu.
Nju je zvala majka s pisanoga ganjka:
„Hodi dimo Jelka, došli su snaboki!
Došli su snaboki, sedmera kolija,
Najzadnja kolija gizdavoga Pavla.“
„Ne dajte me, majko, gizdavomu Pavlo,
Gizdavomu Pavlo, hudomu tolvajo!“
„Kak te ne bi dala, lepi dar dobila,
Kak te ne bi dala, lepi dar dobila!
Ja sam ti dobila lepi svilni robac,
A tvoj stari oček lepo kuno kapo!“
Kak je to začula, mam si je je sela,
Mam si je je sela v Pavlovo kočijo.
„Bledi mesec sveti, kaj najbole moreš,
Tiraj kučiš konje, kaj najbole moreš,
Da ne bode Jelka pute spoznavala,
Pute spoznavala, k majki dohajala.“
Dopelali su se v Pavlovo dvorišće,
Jelka doli stala, zajček je postala.
Uzel Pavel svoju i hrđavu pušku,
Strelil je zajčeka, zajček postal Jelka.
„Teci, krvca, teci, do me majke dvora,
Da bu majka znala kome me je dala,
Gizdavomu Pavlu hudomu tolvaju,
Gizdavomu Pavlu, hudomu tolvaju.“
Uzel Pavel svoju i hrđavu pušku:
„Oj, kovač, kovače, ma hrđava puška,
Koja je ubila devet ljuba moji
I desetu Jelku u mojemu dvoru.“

Jelka’s parents arrange for her to marry the notorious Pavel.
Although Jelka begs her mother not to give her away,
she’s told there’s no going back because the dowry has been received from the future husband - a pretty silk scarf for the mother, and a nice mink cap for the father.
