This is traditional polish song about difficult situation of village women during each war.

Lyric translation:
the sister packed her brother for three years of war
before he went to war he bought his sister material for a dress
red cloth for the dress green cloth for the apron
my sister you have clothes don't let yourself be deceived by boys
the sister didn't heed her brother’s advice and she let the boys deceive her
the brother came back from war to his sister for she was still a maiden
sister I can hear a baby crying It's not mine dear brother
the neighbor asked me to look after her baby
the sun sets and rises but the neighbor doesn't come

Instruments in this song: violin, violin, Wolf Bass (original instrument)

Album THISTLES is a musical tale, suspended between the worlds of fairy tale and real life. The artists once again reach for traditional songs and use their own particular blend of sensitivity and imagination to talk about the world surrounding them from a female perspective. They talk about events that are multi-dimensional, like thistles – since thistles are at the same time beautiful and practical herbs with healing properties, as well as prickly weeds.

Polish trio SUTARI was created by three singers, instrumentalists and performers: Basia Songin, Kasia Kapela and Zosia Zembrzuska - continuing the traditions of Polish folk singers. Their work set a new direction in thinking about traditional music in Poland. They experiment with various vocal techniques, polyphony, traditional Polish rhythms, and explore the musical potential of everyday objects used as instruments. They arrange traditional Polish songs as well as compose their own, based on various female musical traditions.
