Amari szi, amari
Amari si, amari,
amari cini bori.
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.
Amari si, amari,
amari cini bori.
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.

Duj, duj, dešuduj,
čumidav me lako muj.
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.
Duj, duj, dešuduj,
čumidav me lako muj.
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.

Lako muj si rupuno,
puške trubula dino.
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.
Lako muj si rupuno,
puške trubula dino.
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.

Keren, šavořale, drom,
te khêlel o phuro řom.
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.
Phuro řom te khêlela
biš taj jek džes malavla*.
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.

Hoi, te merav
te na čačipan** phenav!
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.
Hoi, te merav
te na čačipan phenav!
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.

Amari si, amari,
amari cini bori.
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.
Amari si, amari,

amari cini bori.
Aj, lalalalala la la laj laj.

Translation

She is ours, she is ours
Our little daughter in law

Two two twelve
I kiss her mouth

Her mouth is made of silver
she has to be shot

Make way children,
let the old man dance

When the old man dances
he taps on for twenty one days.

I’ll slap away at my boot-legs,
That you’ll hear it even in the morning.

Oh let me die
If I don’t tell the truth

She is ours, she is ours
Our little daughter in law
