vAzurula, kita vi svatovi! 481 “Prepare yourselves, forces and wedding attendants! C
Ko je pješak, priteži vopanke; 482 Whoever's a Footsoldier, tighten your boots!
Konjenici, na spone kolane.” 483 Horsemen, buckle your girths.” C
vA vu noge skočiše junaci, 484 And the heroes jumped to their feet, C
vA jamiše bajraki bajrake. 485 And the bearers grabbed the standards. C
vA se svaki bili vodredili: 486 Then each and every one was appointed: C
Stari svate silan Osmanbeže, 487 The eldest witness powerful Osmanbey, C
Selambaša Mujo buljubaša; 488 The official greeter Captain Mujo; C
A tu bili kad su polazili. 489 And there they were as the company departed.
Tad zavika silan Osmanbeže: 490 Then powerful Osmanbey began to shout,: C
vO O Turčine, Narlanović Mujo, 491 “O Turk, Narlane's son Mujo,
vAjde prodji na tijesna klanca, 492 Hurry and go ahead to the narrow gorge, C
Pa ti jami divit i papira, 493 Then take a writing-box and paper,
Pa ti voćeš tefteriti vojsku -- 494 So you can make a record of the army's strength -- C
vA koliko bojne vojske jima, 495 And how many brave soldiers there are, C
vE! Koliko vu bega svatova 496 E! How many of the bey's wedding attendants C
Što se danas puno viskupilo, 497 Who have gathered here today in abundance,
Što je zvano vi što nije zvano; 498 Those invited and those uninvited;
Puno ji' je ji još dolazilo 499 The army was complete and still more have arrived
Koga nije lički beže zvavo. 500 Whom the bey of the Lika didn't invite.
jIma vojske puno preko reda.” 501 There are soldiers in abundance throughout the ranks.”
vA da vidiš Narlanović Muje, 502 But you should have seen Narlane's son Mujo, C
Koji znade sve sedam jezika -- 503 Who knew all the seven languages -- C
Pa propade prošečemu klancu, 504 /Then he disappered in the jagged gorge, C
Pa von tefter tuka rasklapijo: 505 Then there he opened his account book: C
Rasklopi ga vOsmanu na glavi, 506 He opened it with Osman at the head C
vA zaklopi pa Tali za vratom, 507 And closed it with Tale at the rear,
Jer najzad'i Tale nalazijo. 508 Since Tale came along last of all. C

Dvades' i pet pa bilo hiljada, 510 Twenty-five thousand there were, C
