Зеленичке тихе вале

На станици наших снова
старо друштво из младости
још се сјећа свих возова
пјесме, шале и радости

Пјевали су пјесму с мора
пјесму која љубав носи
чекали су вапор с двора
и трчали ривом боси

Још и данас клапа пјева
јесење су стигле кише
нова младост санак снијева
а возова нема више

Зеленичке тихе вале
буди пјесма са обале
