A short two-part love song from Bosnia sung by unmarried girls. The song moves from unison to thirds to major seconds throughout. Very fun to sing. A song from a time when young brides left their families and moved in with the family of the groom which could have many challenges.
My marigold, who is picking you? If I were still a young girl I would pick you.
But I’m getting ready to go to another’s home and call another person “father”.
Other father, be good! While I must forget my own father.
