Vie se vie oro Makedonsko

Many people come close to the river;

Golem sober mise sobral kraj Vardarot

they dance and sing

Oro i pesna sonce i ljubov

Dance and song, sunshine and love,

Tova e nasa Makedonija

If you want to know, that is Macedonia

Siot narod se nasabral Makedonski

All Macedonian people came together

Pregrnatil bratski dase razveselat

Like brothers and sisters feeling like a family

Dali gledas milo skopje

Do you hear, darling Skopje,

Dali slusas kakva pesna se peje

Do you hear what songs I sing to you?
