lyrics

Dragana sits in a garden,
In a garden, under a wild rosebush,
Embroidering and singing a song.
Above her a nightingale says:
‘C’mon, sing, let’s compete!
If you outsing me,
You can cut off my wings.
If I outsing you,
I will cut off your hair.’

Dragana outsang the nightingale.
The nightingale pleaded with her:
‘Cut my legs,
But do not cut my wings,
I have chicks ready to hatch!’

‘Dearest nightingale, dearest bird,
I don’t want to cut anything,
For me it is enough to boast
That I outsang a nightingale!’
