DVA BRACANINA                           TWO LADS OF BRAC

Kad su se dva Bracanina                 When to lads of Brac
intrala * na fjumeri *. . . .           meet on the seashore. . . .
A ca?  A ca?                            So what?  So what?
Ca kazu momka dva?                      What are saying two lads?
"Nima nista tvoga                       "There's nothing of yours
to je bacva moja                        this is my barrel
ma ferala * mi hoj,                     Cross my heart
ma sokolicu moj."                       my dear falconet."

Kad rivom prode cura fina               Then a fine girl passes the seashore,
nosi bokal vina. . . .                  carrying jug of wine. . . .
A ca?  A ca?                            So what?  So what?
Ca kazu momka dva?                      What are saying two lads?
"Oj, ti curo fina,                      "Hey, you fine girl,
donesi bokal vina,                      bring over jug of wine,
nek cila riva zna                       All the seashore to know
za Bracanina dva."                      for two lads of Brac.

Kad rivom prode sjora* Mande            Then Mrs. Mande passes the seashore,
nosi zmul * bevande. . . .              carrying glas of bevanda *
A ca?  A ca?                            So what?  So what?
Ca kazu momka dva?                      What are saying two lads?
"Oj, ti sjora Mande,                    "Hey, Mrs. Mande,
donesi zmul bevande,                    bring over glas of bevanda
nek cila riva zna                       All the seashore to know
za Bracanina dva."                      for two lads of Brac.

Recipe

Rozata - Pudding of Brac island

6 eggs
6 dL of milk
12 large spoons of sugar

In the pot for cooking the rozata, 6 large spoons of sugar are turned into caramel, which - while still hot - all pot sides are covered with. When caramel cools down, the prepared mixture is poured into the same pot. Altogether is cooked on the steam without further mixing for about 1 hour, until the mixture completely stiffens.
