Comment

Dalmatian klapa song originally from Sibenik.

The blackened specific parts of the clothing (belt) were used to show the grade of the sorrow after the death of someone close.

OMILI MI U SELU DIVOJKA                 A GIRL HAS ENDEARED TO ME IN THE VILLAGE

Omili mi u selu divojka,                A girl has endeared to me in the village,
malo plaha al' je srcu draga.           A bit shy but she is dear to a heart.
I mome je srcu omilila,                 She has endeared to my heart too,
pitat cu je ako mi je dadu,             I shall ask her if they'll give her to me,
pitat cu je ako mi je dadu.             I shall ask her if they'll give her to me.

Ako mi je ne tidose dati,               If they do not want to give her to me
poc cu junak srid gore zelene.          I will bravely go to the green mountain.
Pivat cu joj jutron i veceron           I will sing her mornings and evenings
ne bi li se mlada smilovala,            So the young one shows me mercy,
ne bi li se mlada smilovala.            So the young one shows me mercy.

Ako mi se smilovati nece                If she do not show me mercy,
ocrnit cu sve haljine svoje,            I will blacken all my clothes
samo necu pasa ni marame.               But I won't the belt and the scarf
Pasa necu rad majcina glasa,            The belt for my mother's reputation
a marame rad moje divojke.              And the scarf I won't for my girl.
