Pod kopinom pod zelenom tam je nje mu spavati, obe čal mi svilen robec, ne rad bi mi davati. Ako njegva stara mati neće mi ga davati!
obe čal mi zlaten prsten, ne rad bi mi davati.
obe čal mi žute čižme, ne rad bi mi davati.

This is a folk song I will be performing with my choir soon. We'd like to know what we are singing and we would also like to provide a translation in our programme. The song has 3 verses, but only the second line is different so I have not repeated the first and the third lines.
