    Smile Stanko Nedeljkovic Badji - Kad sam pos'o, Cveto, u tudjinu

    Can someone translate this song in English for me plz?

    Kad sam poso cveto u tudjinu
    gorke suze ti si lila
    Gorke suze cveto, ti si lila
    I u mene si se klela

    Da ces verna cveto da mi budes
    Kucu i decu da mi cuvas
    Da ces verna cveto da mi budes
    Kucu i decu da mi cuvas

    Ja u tebe cveto, veru nemam
    Brzo kuci, ja se vratih
    Sad se secam cveto
    Sta sve vidoh
    Ponoc bese davno prosa

    Porta bese cveto zatvorena
    A decica, polegana
    Porta bese cveto zatvorena
    A decica, polegana

    Soba ti je bila zamracena
    S komsijom si govorila
    Crnu kafu cveto snjim si pila
    Vidoh da si srecna bila

    Takolime cveto docekujes
    Takolimi decu cuvas

    Kad sam poso cveto u tudjinu - CVETA, WHEN I WENT TO A FOREIGN PLACE

    Kad sam poso cveto u tudjinu
    CVETA, WHEN I WENT TO A FOREIGN PLACE
    gorke suze ti si lila
    YOU SHED BITTER TEARS
    Gorke suze cveto, ti si lila
    BITTER TEARS CVETA, YOU SHED
    I u mene si se klela
    AND YOU CURSED ME

    Da ces verna cveto da mi budes
    THAT YOU CVETA WILL BE LOYAL TO ME
    Kucu i decu da mi cuvas
    TO GUARD MY HOUSE AND CHILDREN
    Da ces verna cveto da mi budes
    THAT YOU CVETA WILL BE LOYAL TO ME
    Kucu i decu da mi cuvas
    TO GUARD MY HOUSE AND CHILDREN

    Ja u tebe cveto, veru nemam
    IN YOU CVETA, I HAVE NO FAITH
    Brzo kuci, ja se vratih
    QUICKLY HOME I RETURNED
    Sad se secam cveto
    NOW I REMEMBER CVETA
    Sta sve vidoh
    EVERYTHING I SAW
    Ponoc bese davno prosa
    MIDNIGHTS PASSED LONG AGO

    Porta bese cveto zatvorena
    THE PORTAL CVETA WAS CLOSED
    A decica, polegana
    AND THE CHILDREN, WERE LAYED DOWN (TO BED)
    Porta bese cveto zatvorena
    THE PORTAL CVETA WAS CLOSED
    A decica, polegana
    AND THE CHILDREN, WERE LAYED DOWN (TO BED)

    Soba ti je bila zamracena
    YOUR ROOM WAS OBSCURED
    S komsijom si govorila
    YOU TALKED TO THE NEIGHBOUR
    Crnu kafu cveto snjim si pila
    BLACK COFFE CVETA YOU DRANK
    Vidoh da si srecna bila
    I SAW THAT YOU WERE HAPPY

    Tako li me cveto docekujes
    THAT'S CVETA HOW YOU RECEIVE ME
    Tako li mi decu cuvas
    THAT'S HOW YOU THAT CARE OF MY CHILDREN


    CAO, Maja

    HEy thanx for your help.... But I'm still a little confused. What does "Cveta" mean? is it like a name, or does it also have alternative meanings?

    I think it's a name, perhaps even a nickname.
