Qenke veshun-o me të bardha
(Oh you are dressed in white)

Albanian, city of Përmet

O qenke veshun-o me të bardha
Hajde ‘ja ke lala-e!
O mu’ me ty më zu sevdaja
Hajde ‘ja ke lala-e!

Hajde, ‘ja ke lala-e,
Dal lala përpara-e!


O qenke veshun-o me të kuqe
Hajde ‘ja ke lala-e!
O m’a ke buzën si burbuqe
Hajde, ’ja ke lala-e!

O qenke veshur me jeshile
Hajde ‘ja ke lala-e!
O m’a ke zanin si bilbil-e
Hajde ‘ja ke lala-e!
Oh you are dressed in white,
Come on now!
Oh, I’ve fallen in love with you,
Come on now!

Come on now,
I’m waiting for you.


Oh you are dressed in red,
Come on now!
Oh, your lips are like rose buds,
Come on now!

Oh you are dressed in green,
Come on now!
Oh, your voice is like a nightingale’s,
Come on now!
