Dalmatinski magarac.

Komentar

Dalmatinska gradska pjesma.

Magarac kao izdrživa životinja bio je toliko važan u tvrdom dalmatinskom okružju da se čak pojavljuje i u pjesmama.

Ova je pjesma tipičan primjer parodije, koja očito namiguje na ljudsku analogiju.

BALADA O MAGARCU                        THE BALADE OF DONKEY

Magarac je volija magaricu mladu,       Donkey was in love with a young hinny,
oni su se volili samo za paradu.        They've been in love only for the show.

Nije, nije, nije pa nije,               It isn't, it isn't and it isn't,
nije to, majko, istina.                 Mother, it is not the truth.

Magarca su upregli u teške samare *,    Donkey has been harnessed under heavy burden,
magaricu pustili da po polju pase.      Hinny has been left to pasture on the field.

Nije, nije, nije pa nije,               It isn't, it isn't and it isn't,
nije to, majko, istina.                 Mother, it is not the truth.

Magarac je krepa od silnih ubaca,       Donkey has died of overmuch of strokes,
magarica našla je drugoga magarca.      Hinny has found another donkey.

Nije, nije, nije pa nije,               It isn't, it isn't and it isn't,
nije to, majko, istina.                 Mother, it is not the truth.
