lyrics

Sveča dogorijeva

Sveča dogorijeva, gazda umrijeva,
Plaća gazda, plaća, svega vernog slugu.
„Veno su ti moje gore i planine!“
„Nit sam za jne služil, niti moje budu.“
„Veno su ti moji si četiri konji!“
„Nit sam za jne služil, niti moji budu.“
„Veno ti je moja najstareša čerka!“
„Nit sam za jnu služil, niti moja bude.“
„Veno ti je moja lepa sredna čerka!“
„Nit sam za jnu služil, niti moja bude.“
„Veno ti je moja ponajmlajša ćerka!“
„Nju sam si zaslužil, za jnu bi i molil.“
Sveča dogorijeva, gazda umrijeva,
Plaća, gazda, plaća svega vernog slugu.

The candle is burning out. The master is dying and wishes to reward his faithful servant.
The servant is given land, but he rejects this saying he never waged for it.
He rejects his master’s four horses with the same words, and then refuses the eldest daughter and then the middle one.
Eventually he takes the youngest, saying she’s the reward he has been serving for.

about

Dunja Knebl Zagreb, Croatia

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.
