Dear friends,
next Sunday, we will complement our dancing by learning the popular song "Lilyano mome". The Bulgarian amongst you might assign this song to one of the dances, we learned recently. From geographical point of view, this dance originates in South-Western Bulgaria, in the Pirin mountains.

Below, you'll find the lyrics in Cyrillic and Latin scripts, as well as a short translation. For listening, you'll find on the web a record of IVAN DYAKOV - LILYANO MOME (there, you will see the dance as well).

Latin Script:

Lilyano mome Lilyano,
ya stani rano prizori,
ya stani rano prizori-
i libeto si posreshtni.

Ne mi izlyazla Lilyana,
nay izlyazla mayka y,
lyuti si kletvi kalneshe
i na Georgi dumashe:

Idi si Georgi, idi si,
Lilyana e bolna legnala,
Lilyana e bolna legnala
i ne mozhe da stane.

Ne mi go lazhi male ma,
ya sam si Georgi lyubila,
ya sam si Georgi lyubila
za nego ke se ozhenia.

Cyrillic Script:

Лиляно моме Лиляно,
я стани рано призори
и либето си посрещни.

Не ми излязла Лиляна,
най излязла майка,
люти си клетви кълнеше
и на Георги думаше:

Иди си Георги, иди си,
Лиляна e болна легнала, *2
и не може да стане.

Не ми го лъжи мамо ма,
я съм си Георги любила *2
за него ke се оженя.

Short translation:

The boyfriend of a girl called Liliana wants to visit her, but Liliana's mother sends him away, saying that Liliana is sick. However, Liliana hears this and tells her mother not to lie to him because she loves him and will marry him.

See you then,
