Translation by Therese Albertine Luise von Jacob (1797 - 1870), as Talvj

Момак моли мајку
Language: Serbian (Српски) 
Моја мајко, ожени ме млада,
Док ме није обузела брада,
Обузела брада и бркови;
Пак ће онда да реку ђевојке,
Кад ме својој мајци ускажују:
"Нуто, мајко, из међе међеда;"
Или: "Нуто из купуса зеца."

Der Knabe an die Mutter
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Serbian (Српски) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE
Jung vermähle mich, o meine Mutter!
Eh der Bart ganz das Gesicht mir einfaßt,
Und sich Kinn und Schnurrbart mir verschlingen.
Möchten sonst die Mädchen von mir sagen,
Wenn sie einmal mich den Müttern zeigen:
"Mutter, sieh' aus dem Gesträuch den Bären!"
Oder: "Sieh' den Hasen aus dem Kraute!"
