Song by Goran Bregovic from the album ‘Ederlezi’. This is also the leitmotiv of Emir Kusturica’s movie ‘Underground’. This song has a great influence from the song ‘Deli Mara’ from Saban Bajramovic.


Nema vise sunca
Nema vise meseca
Nema tebe, nema mene
Niceg vise, nema joj.
Pokriva nas ratna tama
Pokriva nas tama joj.
A ja se pitam moja draga
Sta ce biti sa nama?

Mesecina, mesecina,
joj, joj, joj, joj
Sunce sija ponoc bije,
joj, joj, joj, joj
Sa nebesa, zaproklija
Niko ne zna, niko ne zna
Niko ne zna, niko ne zna
*Niko ne zna sta to sija

Moonlight (Translation)

There is no more sun,
There is no more moon,
There is no more you,
There is no more me.
There is nothing more… oh.
Darkness of war has covered us,
Darkness has covered us… oh.
And I wonder, my dear: What will happen with us?

Is it moonlight at noon? oh-oh,
Is it sunshine at midnight?… oh-oh,
From the skies above, light is beaming…
Nobody knows, Nobody knows,
Nobody knows, Nobody knows,
Nobody knows what is really shining.

*Got the translation from the movie’s subtitles.

  1. Thanks for the translation, loved this song since I first saw underground around 2008, Listen regularly. Don’t think my subs were great because they didn’t translate the lyrics.
