Палчо

(with thanks to "ѓоамити" on the forum forum.milenko.com.mk!)

This rhyme is accompanied with hand motions: pointing at each of the fingers of the hand: thumb for the first line, second finger for the second line, and so on until the fifth finger for the last two lines.

LISTEN Македонски English
Палчо дрва сече,
овој вода влече,
трети оган пали,
овој манџа вари,
најмалото прсте
го викаме Крсте.

Thumb is cutting firewood,
this one is pulling some water,
the third is lighting a fire,
this one is cooking a stew,
the smallest finger
is called Krste (a male Macedonian name).
