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

OJ, OVČARČE

Oj, ovčarče, bre čobanče,
što si tolku razveselen?

Oj, Stojane, moj stopane,
kak da nesum razveselen?
Ovci mi se objagnile, polovina obliznile.
Žena mi se orodila, mi rodila maško dete.

Description
"Hey, Shepherd" is one of many old, rural Macedonian folk songs that talk about shepherds and their life. In this one a shepherd is asked why is he so happy. He answers: "How could I be unhappy? My sheep lambed and many of them had twins, and my wife just gave a birth to my son."
