Иван си Ради говори, мари /2
Либе ле Радо либе ле, мари /2
Ден доде Радо ден доде, мари
Ден доде де Димитровден
Калфите да си излязат мари
Калфите от майсторите
Аргати от чорбаджи, мари
И ас ща Радо да с'ида
Мило ли ти е за мени
Както я мени за теби.
Рада на Иван думаши
Либе Иване, Иване
Както е тебе за мене
Така е мене за тебе
Я почакай ма Иване
да дойдат пости Коледни
Да станат дните мънинки
Я пък нощите големки (големи)
Да преспа мама и тати
и байно с млада невяста
Да бръкна майци у пазуви
А пък на тейко в джубови
Да взема дребно отключи
Сандъци да си отключа
С имане да се назема
Четено и нечетено
Бройено и небройено
Шиници жълти жълтици
Кошове с бели грошове
Иван на Рада думаше
Либе ле Радо либе ле
Не взимай Радо алтъне
Че са тежко за носене
На зимай жълти жълтици
Че са леко за носене.
