Oro (Serbian version)
Dejan Ivanovic

Ko li miluje milo moje?
Ko li usne te snene budi?
Ne zaboravi ime moje
Kada krene da, da te ljubi
Klasje moje ne spavaj
Njega ljubi, mene uspavaj

Ne lomi mi led, vodu nema
Ne soli mi ranu, suza nema
Ko li zaigra oro moje
Neka ne igra za nas dvoje
Klasje, mene uspavaj
Nuna nej, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna nej
Nuna nej, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna nej
Na Vidovdan, probudi me, da ga opet pogledam
Nuna nej, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna nej
Nuna nej, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna nej
Na Vidovdan, probudi me, da ga opet pogledam
Na Vidovdan, probudi me, jos jednom da ga pogledam
