Djevojka se ljuti na svojeg dragog Ivana i pita gdje je skitao cijelu večer. On odgovara da se veselio svirajući violinu na ulici. Poruka (moja) svima: „Nemojte se ljutiti na cvrčke, ptice i muzičare; neka sviraju i pjevaju!“

The girl is angry with Ivan, her lover, because he was out the whole evening. He replies he was just having fun playing his violin in the streets. Message to all (from me): „Don’t be angry with the crickets, the birds and the musicians. Let them play and sing!“


Ой Иван, ты мой Иван, где ты весь вечер пропадал?
Ой и ляль, ой и ляль, ой да ляли, ляли, ляли.
Где ты весь вечер пропадал, что у девушки не бывал?
Ой и ляль...
Сударушка девушка, не гневайся на меня,
Не гневайся на меня, что я не был у тебя.
Ой и ляль...
Не гневайся на меня, что я не был у тебя,
Что я не был, не бывал, на улице прогулял,
На улице прогулял, во скрипочку проиграл.
Ой и ляль…
