Nidje nje bi pritisnuo palco' 61 One couldn't press a thumb anywhere C

Prva mu je vod mekane svile, 64 The first was of soft silk,
vA druga je vod žice zlatane, 65 And the second of golden thread, C
vA treća je vod čelenke ljute. 66 And the third of hard chelenke. C

vOd bedara do muški' njedara, 68 From his thighs to his manly chest, C

A četiri vod zlata čistoga. 71 And four were made of pure gold.
Za njeg' bači dva čifta pušaka, 72 Behind him he slung two paired guns, C

hIzmedju nji' vandžar od čelika; 74 Between them a long steel dagger; C
hIz handžara četiri sindžira, 75 From the dagger hung four chains,
etiri ji' momak zavi puta 76 The young man wrapped them four times

vAko bi mu do rureta bilo, 89 If things happened to him as in this image, C
