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



SEDNA BABA DA VEČERA

Sedna baba da večera, edna erebica
Pak baba ne jala, pak baba ne pila,
Baba bila zlojasna, pak se ne najala, pak se ne napila.

Vtora večer, verčera, dva mi letna galaba, edna erebica
Pak baba ne jala, pak baba ne pila,
Baba bila zlojasna, pak se ne najala, pak se ne napila.

Treta večer večera, tri kokoški prženi, dva mi letna galaba, edna erebica
Pak baba ne jala, pak baba ne pila,
Baba bila zlojasna, pak se ne najala, pak se ne napila.

Četvrta večer večera, četri ovna kaleši, tri kokoški prženi,dva mi letna galaba, edna erebica
Pak baba ne jala, pak baba ne pila,
Baba bila zlojasna, pak se ne najala, pak se ne napila.

Peta večer večera, pet mi kravi jalovi, četri ovna kaleši, tri kokoški prženi, dva mi letna galaba , edna erebica
Pak baba ne jala, pak baba ne pila,
Baba bila zlojasna, pak se ne najala, pak se ne napila.

Šesta večer večera, šest kamili grbavi, pet mi kravi jalovi, čet'ri ovna kaleši, tri kokočki prženi, dva mi letna galaba, edna erebica
Pak baba ne jala, pak baba ne pila,
Baba bila zlojasna, pak se ne najala, pak se ne napila.

Sedma večer ispila, sedum bočvi so vino, šest kamili grbavi, pet mi kravi jalovi, čet'ri ovna kaleši, tri kokoški prženi, dva mi letna galaba, edna erebica
Pak baba ne jala, pak baba ne pila,
Baba bila zlojasna, pak se ne najala, pak se ne napila.
Ednam se natreskala!!!!!!

Description
"Grandma Has Sat Down to Dine" is a well known humorous and somewhat bizarre song from Macedonia in a quick 7/8 meter. Its lyrics belong to a form in which every stanza has one more line than the previous. Through this additive process the tension, mystery or excitement build until the final "punch line".
In the case of this song we have an old lady with an insatiable appetite: she sits down to eat and consumes a quail but is still hungry. Then she has a quail and two pigeons, but still hungry. Then a quail, two pigeons and three fried chicken - still not full. On she goes to eat one quail, two pigeons, three chicken and four rams, but to no avail. Then she tries one quail, two pigeons, three chicken, four rams and five cows but still remains hungry. Next are one quail, two pigeons, three chicken, four rams, five cows and six one-humped camels but no success. Finally she eats one quail, two pigeons, three chicken, four rams, five cows, six one-humped camels and drinks seven barrels of wine. Her hunger is still there but the thirst is gone, as she is completely drunk!
