Song Lyrics and Excerpts 

A ŠTO TI JE MILA KĆERI

NAVALI SE ŠAR PLANINA

ZASPALO JE SIROČE

SNOŠTI GO VIDOV

ROSNA LIVADA

GUSTA MI MAGLA PADNALA

OJ, OVČARČE

GUGUTKA

KRAJ POTOKA BISTRE VODE

MAJKO IGLA I BIĆVICA

SAGRADIĆU ŠAJKU

MOME STOE

SEDNA BABA DA VEČERA

STOJANE SINE

GUSTA MI MAGLA PADNALA

Gusta mi magla padnala, more,
na toj mi ramno Kosovo.

Ništa se živo ne vidi,more,
do jedno drvo visoko.

Pod njeg mi sediv terzije, more,
oni mi šijev eleče.

Kol'ko su zvezde na nebo, more,
tol'ko su šarke na njega.

Description
"Heavy Fog Has Fallen"
This is a famous wedding song from the Kosovo region with a type of melody that could be hundreds of years old. It describes a somewhat surreal scene: The Kosovo field is covered in a thick fog, and the only thing that one can see is the top of a tall tree. Under the tree sits a tailor who is making a beautiful outfit for the bride. The precious ornaments in the outfit are only matched by the number of stars in the sky.

The meter is 7/8
