"Marko skače" is one of the most popular folk songs in Slovenia. It's also known as a children's song because kids learn it in elementary school. The children's version is shorter.

Notes

The longer versions of this song tell the story of how Marco wants to get married and he's looking for a bride. If anyone can send a longer version with a translation, please email me. Thanks in advance! –Mama Lisa

There's a folk dance that accompanies this song.

This is an old song that was recorded on wax cylinders back in 1889. The tune is slightly different now.
