The mountain has overturned (collapsed)

Bulgarian

Prituri sa planinata

Притури са Планината,
че затрупа два овчаря,
два овчаря, два другаря.
Първи овчар ѝ се моли :
« Имам либе да ме жали. »
Втори овчар ѝ се моли :
« Имам майка да ме жали. »
Проговаря Планината :
« Ой ви вази, два овчаря,
либе жали ден до пладне,
майка жали чак до гроба ! »
Притури са Планината,
че затрупа два овчаря.

Prituri sa Planinata,
če zatrupa dva ovčarja,
dva ovčarja, dva drugarja.
Pǎrvi ovčar i se moli:
"Imam libe da me žali."
Vtori ovčar i se moli:
"Imam majka da me žali."
Progovarja Planinata:
"Oj vi vazi, dva ovčarja,
libe žali den do pladne,
majka žali čak do groba!"
Prituri sa planinata,
če zatrupa dva ovčarja!
