"Где ћеш, врапче, зимовати?"

"Где ћеш, врапче, данас ручат?"

"На крај шора,
наврх ора!"
- тако врабац одговара.

"А где ти је конак, врапче?"
- пита мачка врапца стара.
"Шта те брига?
Погоди га!"
- тако врабац одговара.

"Знаш ли, море, зашт' те питам?"
"Јер си мачка, а ја птица!"
- То је реко
па утеко, -
оста мачка тужна лица.

A Sparrow and a Cat

"Where you'll spend the winter, sparrow?"
- a cat asks a sparrow old.
"Here and there, -
and everywhere!"
- that's how sparrow will respond.

"Sparrow, where you'll dine today?"
- a cat asks a sparrow old.
"In a field,
on a tree!"[1]
- that's how sparrow will respond.

"And where are you living, sparrow?"
- a cat asks a sparrow old.
"Why do you care?
You guess where!"
- that's how sparrow will respond.

"Listen, you know why I ask you?"
"You're a cat, and me - a bird!"
- That he said
and then he fled, -
The cat's sadness could be heard...[2]
