Niz polje idu babo sejmeni

Niz polje idu, babo, sejmeni
sejmenske pjesme, babo, pjevaju
sejmenske pjesme, babo, pjevaju
 
Sejmenske pjesme, babo, pjevaju
i moga sina Marka tjeraju
i moga sina Marka tjeraju
 
Prokleti da su, babo, sejmeni
što moga sina Marka tjeraju
sejmenske pjesme, babo, pjevaju

English translation

Seymens are marching down the field, father

Seymens are marching down the field, [oh] father1
they are singing seymenic songs, father
they are singing seymenic songs, father
 
They are singing seymenic songs, father
and hunting my son Marko
and hunting my son Marko
 
Cursed be the seymens, father
that are hunting my son Marko
they are singing seymenic songs
 
  • 1. The word "father" is in the entire song in the vocative case, meaning he is being adressed, hence the word "oh" in the brackets. To maximize aesthetics I put the brackets only once, but "father" should here be always understood as being called out.
