Bulgarian vocalist and teacher Tatian Sarbinska wrote this song; she has been awarded "national treasure" status by the Bulgarian government. Her extensive repertoire includes music from all of Bulgaria's folklore regions.
“Katerina, girl, Katerina / Why are you so beautiful? / What kind of mother bore you? / What kind of water did you drink? / I am, dear love, so beautiful, / I am so attractive, / Because I grew up on the mountain, / Because I grew up on Pirin Mountain. / The Pirin water, love, I drank, / The Pirin grass I trod, / A Bulgarian mother bore me, / A Pirin mother raised me, / A Bulgarian mother raised me.”
