Dalmatian klapa song originally from Split and Trogir.

When a young man leaves a handkerchief at young woman's place, it means by Dalmatian tradition that he is asking her to marry him.

SINOC SAN TI KOD MAJKE BIJA             LAST NIGHT I WAS AT YOUR MOTHER'S

Sinoc san ti kod majke bija,            Last night I was at your mother's
faculet * san ostavija.                 I've left a handkerchief.

Draga duso, ma ti ga peri               My dear, you wash it
u sapunu, ladnoj vodi.                  In the soup and cold water.

Ja sapuna ma ne imaden,                 I don't have a soap
ladna voda daleko je.                   And cold water is far away.

Sapun, duso, ma ruke tvoje,             Soap. my dear, your hands,
ladna voda suze moje.                   Cold water, my tears.

* faculet = rupcic
