A Macedonian folk song, "Macedonian Girl". The chorus translates as, "Is there in this wide world, a more beautiful girl than a Macedonian? There isn't, there isn't, there won't be born a more beautiful girl than a Macedonian!" We suspect it may have been written by a Macedonian.


Makedonsko devojce,
Kitka sarena,
Vo gradina nabrana,
Dar podarena.

Dali ima novoj beli svet,
Poubavo devojce od makedonce?
Nema nema neke se rodi,
Poubavo devojce od makedonce!

Nema dzvezdi po-licni,
Od tvoj'te oci,
Da se noke na nebo,
Den ke razdeni.

In English:
Macedonian girl,
Many-coloured bouquet,
Gathered in the garden,
Given as a gift.

Is there in this wide world,
More beautiful girl than Macedonian?
There isn't, there isn't, there won't be born,
More beautiful girl than Macedonian!

There are no stars more beautiful,
Than your eyes,
They light up the night sky,
As if it was dawn.
