    Žubor voda šljunkom teče,
    Huji šumica,
    A na nebu zvezda trepti,
    Zvezda danica.

    Žubor voda šljunkom teče,
    Huji šumica,
    A na nebu zvezda trepti,
    Zvezda danica.

    Srce moje igra, bije,
    Sve se previja —
    Čini mi se, moja dušo,
    Da je Srbija!

    A od one zvezde sjajne
    Činiš mi se ti,
    Pak bih iš'o — išao bih
    Zvezde ljubiti!…

    Srce moje igra, bije,
    Sve se previja —
    Čini mi se, moja dušo,
    Da je Srbija!

    Huji šumica,
    A na nebu zvezda trepti,
    Zvezda danica.

    Murmur, water the gravel rolls
    ?huji? the forest
    and in the sky a star twinkles
    the day star

    Srce moje igra, bije,
    Sve se previja —
    Čini mi se, moja dušo,
    Da je Srbija!

    my heart plays, beats,
    it twists in every direction (happily)
    It seems to me, my soul
    that this is Serbia!

    A od one zvezde sjajne
    Činiš mi se ti,
    Pak bih iš'o — išao bih
    Zvezde ljubiti!…

    And from that bright star,
    I am reminded of you
    ?pak? I would go, go I would
    to kiss that star!

    Srce moje igra, bije,
    Sve se previja —
    Čini mi se, moja dušo,
    Da je Srbija!

    I'm confused about "Žubor voda" and the words "huji as well as pak"

    Not sure how the song goes,but this might be better translated as "water's murmur through the gravel flows" (or rolls,although that vould be "kotrlja) imo.

    I think it means something like the spring water is babbling or murmuring. That is the sound that natural spring drinking water makes.

    This little girl sings it so well.
