vA za zdravlje Bećiragi svome, 661 Even for the health of your Bećiragha, C
Šta ti Bećir bude vazda zdravo, 662 So that your Bećirbey may always be healthy, C
Sta Bog da ti poljubijo lišće, 663 So that God grants that he might kiss your face, C

Ti Zlatiji vobljubijo lice!” 676 And may you caress your Zlata's face!”

vA zavika Vide bajraktare: 679 And Vide the standardbearer began to shout: C
“Kupi, bane, vajde da jidemo!” 680 “Gather it up, ban; hurry, let's go!” C
“Neka, Vide, još Turaka jima, 681 “Let me be, Vide, there are more Turks to come,
A dje su jim sada sajisane.” 682 And now there are pack-horses with them.” C

Prva kriva, zadnja prevaljiva. 685 The first pass was twisted, the last one up and down.
Kad evo ti buljubaše Tale! 686 Then here he was -- Captain Tale!
