Lyrics of Dona

Macedonian (Original)

DONA
Od site malečki nešta ova najmnogu vredi Od site golemi misli od cel moj svet I koga nazad se vrtam ti si stalno tuka kako skriena senka tivok božji cvet
Za sé što ti si mi dala od srce ti fala za seto minato vreme
Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona Dona gledaj me i nasmej se za mene Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona moja sila, svetlost, sjaj me praviš silna znaj, o Dona veruvaj vo mene veruvaj
Od site malečki nešta ova najmnogu vredi Od site golemi misli od cel moj svet Znam komu pripagjam i kade toa radost me čeka Odam do oblaci mali na biserni skali
Za sé što ti si mi dala od srce ti fala za seto minato vreme
Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona Dona gledaj me i nasmej se za mene Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona moja sila, svetlost, sjaj me praviš silna znaj, o Dona veruvaj vo mene veruvaj
Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona vo mene veruvaj

English

From all the small things this one is the most worthy from all the great thoughts from my entire world. And when I turn back you are always there as a hidden shadow silent God`s flower.
For all the things that you gave me from my heart I thank you for the entire passed time
Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona Look at me and smile for me Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona my force, light, glow you make me strong, you know, o Dona, believe Believe in me
From all the small things this is the most worthy from all the great thoughts from my entire world I know whom I belong to and where joy awaits me on small clouds I walk on pearl stairs
For all the things that you gave me from my heart I thank you for the entire passed time
Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona Look at me and smile for me Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona my force, light, glow you make me strong, you know, o Dona, believe Believe in me
