LYRICS

Što boja male što boja
Što boja surce mori prokalo
Da ida male da ida
Vuv taja gora mori zelena

Da hodja male da hodja
S četata na Jane Sandanski
Da nosa male da nosa
Tenka mi puška mori bojlija

Tenka mi puška bojlija
Ti ostra sabja mori frengija
Teška mi puška bojlija
Ti ostra sabja mori frengija
      What color is small in color
What color does the scepter go through?
To go small to go
Vuv taja gora mori zelena

That walking is small to walk
With a chat on Jane Sandanski
That the nose is small to nose
Tank is shooting my rifle

Tank is a rifle for me
The sharp frenzy of the mori froze
My rifle is heavy
The sharp frenzy of the mori froze
