Fifi

Fifi

Ovaj cas,
ovaj cas
jedan pas,
na uzici od svile,
sa noktima od lila,
s masnicom od tila
prolazi kraj nas.

Jedna zena stara
sa njim razgovara:

- Fifi, gledaj pravo,
Fifi, digni rep.
Fifi, pazi drvo.
Fifi, nisi slep.
Fifi, masnu pazi.
Fifi, lepo gazi.
Fifi, to ne njusi.
Fifi, gore usi.
Fifi, ti znas ko si.
poodleFifi, ne prkosi.
Fifi, jezik nize.
Fifi, hodi blize.
Fifi, ne skakuci.

Fifi, sad ces kuci.

Tako Fifi zivi
na uzici od svile,
sa noktima lila,
sa masnom od tila.
Tako zena stara
sa njim razgovara.
Tako ovaj cas
prodjose kraj nas. 

Fifi

Right now,
right now,
a puppy goes by.
His leash is made of silk,
his fingernails are pink,
his bow is on the brink
to fall into his eye.

An old lady talks
to him as she walks:

- Fifi, do you mind,
Fifi, up your tail.
Fifi, there's a snail.
Fifi, you're not blind.
Fifi, keep your bow.
Fifi, do not fowl.
Fifi, do not sniff.
Fifi, you're too stiff.
Fifi, your head up.
Fifi, stubborn pup.
Fifi, up your ear.
Fifi, please, come near.
Fifi, don't jump so.
Fifi, you'll go home.

That's how Fifi lives
with the leash of silk,
with fingernails pink,
his bow on the brink.
That is how she talks
to him as she walks.
That's how they right now
went by, anyhow.
