My Favorite Bosnian Love Songs

1. Gondže ružo

很喜欢这首,找歌词的时候注意到和预想不同,不是匿名作者,而是出自19世纪20世纪之交活跃的波斯尼亚塞族诗人Aleksa Šantić之手。Sevdalinka名曲Emina歌词也是这位诗人的作品。

歌词大意(来源):

A lover talking to a rosebud, which smells sweeter than basil and hyacinths sprinkled with dew.
「I won’t pick you, my rose, nor give you to the one I love.
My love doesn’t care for me, nor does she wait for me. I don’t have a sweetheart, yet she’s on my mind, and I curse her day and night. May she never escape my curse, for she has left me all alone.」

2. Mujo Kuje

这首歌词傻萌傻萌的。

歌词大意(来源):

Mujo is shoeing his horse in the moonlight
Mujo is shoeing his horse and his mother is scolding him

“Oh, my son, Mujo, long life to you
Why are you shoeing your horse in the moonlight,
and not in the daylight when there is sunshine?”

Mujo says, “Oh, mother, don’t scold young Mujo
You know how I feel when I think of my beloved
I see neither the sun nor the moon and my horse doesn’t notices the darkness nor the storm clouds nor the cold waters of the River Drina.”

3. Moj dilbere

这首是女子视角。这篇文章有一些关于歌词的解读。

歌词大意(来源):

My beautiful, where do you saunter,
‘ah why don’t you bring me with you?
‘ah why don’t you bring me with you?

Take me to the marketplace,
‘ah and then sell me to the trader!
‘ah and then sell me to the trader!

Take an oka of gold for me,
‘ah so that you can gild your palace door!
‘ah so that you can gild your palace door!
