U Milice duge trepavice
(Serbian Kids Song)

U Milice duge trepavice
Milica Has Long Eyelashes
Children's Song
Children's Song

U Milice, u Milice duge trepavice (2x)
Prekrile joj, prekrile joj rumen jagodice (2x)

Ja je gledam, ja je gledam tri godine dana,
Ne mogu joj, ne mogu joj oči sagledati.

Crne oči, crne oči i bijelo lice. (2x)

Milica, Milica has long eyelashes (2x)
They covered her red cheeks (2x)

I was looking, I was looking at her for three years,
I couldn't take, I couldn't take my eyes off of her eyes.

Those black, black eyes and white face. (2x)
Here's an excerpt of this song being sung by the 5 and 6 year old students at "Melodium" Music School in Novi Sad, Serbia...


OO Meeleetse……

OO Meeleetse, oo Meeleetse dooge trepaveetse (2x)
Prekreele yoy, prekreele yoy roomen yagodeetse. (2x)

Ya ye gledam, ya ye gledam tree godeene dana
Ne mogoo yoy, ne mogoo yoy ochi sagledatee.

Tsrne ochi, tsrne ochi i beejelo leetse. (2x)

"a" like in "car"
"e" like in "bed"
