traditional, from Shkodra, Albania.
“When I sit in front of you / I am in love with you; / I care for only you. / You are my heart and the apple of my eye. / White and beautiful you are; / I cannot wait to smell you. / If I knew I had you, / A hen I’d want to be, / Into the coop I’d want to go, / and stir up all the hens. / God has given me skill; / A fish I’d want to be. / Into the sea I’d want to go / and stir up all the fish.”
