Pitam tebe Maro

„Pitam tebe, Maro, de tvoj par počiva?“
(Pitam tebe, Maro! Pitam tebe Maro!).
„Na ratkovskom polu na kuruzu pazi.“
(Na ratkovskom polu, na ratkovskom polu.)
„Idi, golob, idi, pak mi para streli!“
(Idi, golob, idi! Idi, golob, idi!)
Prvič puška poči, Joža gori skoči.
(Prvič puška poči, prvič puška poči.)
Drugoč puška poči v Jožefove prsi,
(Drugoč puška poči, drugoč puška poči.)
On si je zaviknul:»Jezuš i Marija!"
(Jezuš i Marija! Jezuš i Marija!)
Jezuš i Marija, pune prsi špriha!
(Jezuš i Marija! Jezuš i Marija!)
Pitam tebe Maro, jel' te boli srce?

Upon Mara’s request, her lover agrees to kill her husband.
Mara is haunted afterwards by the questions she keeps hearing:
“Tell me, Mara, is your heart aching?”

I have recorded 14 albums of less known or forgotten traditional Croatian folk songs released by different labels as compact discs, 3 of which are on BC. Here you can also find my recordings of folk songs from some other countries I have lived in (free download), and also some live concerts from the past (free download)
Most of the songs are with lyrics.
