Da mi se je navoziti(I Wish I Could Sail)


Ana Čorić & Dunja Bahtijarević


Croatia Korčula island



Da mi se je navoziti
toga mora dubokoga
da mi se je najubiti, lipa bjondo
tvoga lica rumenoga
Evo ti se odilujen
ispri' bila dvora tvoga
kasno ćeš me već viditi, lipa bjondo
živa željo srca moga
Ti ćeš žalit našu jubav
lipa bjondo moja
a druga će milovati, lipa bjondo tvoga draga jubjenoga

I wish I could sail
In this deep sea
I wish I could kiss, my beautiful blonde
Your blushing face.

I'm leaving/separating
In front of your white courtyard
You will eventually see me late, my beautiful blonde
Living/vivid wish of my heart.

You will regret/grieve/mourn our love
My beautiful blonde
While another (girl) will dandle, my beautiful blonde
Your loved one.
