If I Were a White Button

bosniaque

Kad bi bio bijelo dugme

 

Kad bi bio bijelo dugme
mala bi se zakopcala u me
kad bi bio dugme plavo
ne bi znala da sam kraj nje spavo

Ref.
Hej mala hej
kad bi bio dugme, hej

Da sam djerdan sav od zlata
grlio bih malu oko vrata
diro bih je cijelog dana
ne zna selo, ne zna njena nana

Ref.

If I Were a White Button

Versions : #1#2

If I were a white button
Girl you would button into me
If I were a blue button
You wouldn't know that I slept beside her

Chorus
Hey girl hey
If I were a button, hey

If I was accented with gold
I would hug the girl around her neck
I would touch her all day
She doesn't know, her mom doesn't know

Chorus

Chorus

If I was accented with gold
I would hug the girl around her neck
I would touch her all day
She doesn't know, her mom doesn't know

Chorus

Hey, somebody please explain this song. What button? A shirt button?
What's a translation without explanation/understanding?
MayGoLoco, are you around here?
How does a girl button a button? And what's with the blue button now?
I'm a bit disappointed that my white button symbolism failed and they didn't "launch peace" with their white button.

MayGoLoco     février 24th, 2012

I gave it an attempt, take a look at my translation. I don't know where they came up with the buttons and the colors...

MayGoLoco     février 24th, 2012

Ow, Calusarul you're going to love me now Tongue
I did some googling and found an answer to your question!
As I'm born and raised in the Netherlands I unfortunately don't know much about old customs/traditions etc.
But here's what I've found A girl or a young woman would sew a white button on her dress as a gesture of affection.

Calusarul     février 24th, 2012

I was already falling in love with you when you answered all my silly questions. I was wondering why would a girl button and not unbutton a guy's shirt; now I understand it - thanks to you.
Well, MayGoLoco, I would certainly sew a white button on your shirt now.
Take some time to relax now, I'll pick up another song next week to bother you again with.

MayGoLoco     février 24th, 2012

Hahahaha, you don't bother me at all. I'm glad I could help you understand the song better (and learn something myself). You don't like Keba anymore?

Calusarul     février 24th, 2012

A new artist every week. Keba was the previous week. Bijelo - this week. Now I'll have to find another (broken hearted }:) ) artist for the next week. I'm thinking... Yes - Owner of a Lonely Hear. http://lyricstranslate.com/en/Yes-Owner-Lonely-Heart-lyrics.html
But you'll have to translate it into Croatian, Dutch, Serbian, Bosnian or Montenegrin so that I can ask you questions.

MayGoLoco     février 24th, 2012

Hahaha well the week is almost over! I'm much better at ex yu -> english translations.
Wonder what you'll come up with next week, I'm looking forward to it Laughing out loud hahaha
