/ Dodji, Mile, u naš kraj pa da vidiš šta je raj. /
/ Hej, haj, u naš kraj pa da vidiš šta je raj. /
/ Prodje, Mile, propeva i volove protera. /
/ Hej, haj, propeva i volove protera. /
  Mile, come through our village
To see what paradise is like.
As mile was passing, singing,
Driving his oxen before him.
