about

Za mene je ovo anti-ratna pjesma a i borba za žensku emancipaciju u neka davna vremena; a možda i ne tako davna. Žena plače jer njen dragi odlazi u boj, a on pjeva i olako kaže kako se ne treba bojati jer je ostavlja „u svom dvoru kod svoje majke“. Ona se s tim ne slaže jer joj je najvažnije da bude pored onog kojeg ljubi.

This is an anti-war song to me, as well as an early struggle for women‘s rights. The woman is crying because her partner is going away to war and is singing while making preparations. He says she should not be afraid because he is leaving her in his house with his mother. She disagrees because the most important thing for her is to be by his side and love him.

lyrics

Moj se dragi u boj sprema i peva, janje moje, i peva, dušo moja, aj i peva, aj i peva.
Ja mu jadna konja sedlam i plačem, janje moje, i plačem, dušo moja, aj i plačem, aj i plačem.
Zar ti mene sad ostavljaš, dragane, janje moje, dragane, dušo moja, aj dragane, aj dragane?
Ne boj mi se, curo moja, malena, janje moje, malena, dušo moja, aj malena, aj malena!
Ostavljam te u svom dvoru kod majke, janje moje, kod majke, dušo moja, aj kod majke, aj kod majke.
A što ću ti u tvom dvoru kod majke, janje moje, kod majke, dušo moja, aj kod majke, aj kod majke.
Kad ja nemam koga grlim i ljubim, janje moje, i ljubim, dušo moja, aj i ljubim, aj i ljubim.
