Duj Sandale

Arakhlem la pe ulica
Ccindem lacce lubenica
Aj landa landala
Ccindem lacce sandala. (x2)

Aj landa landala
Ccindem lacce sandala. (x4)

Arakhlem la and’e mala
Ccindem lacce e sandala
Aj landa landala
Ccindem lacce sandala. (x2)

Aj landa landala
Ccindem lacce sandala. (x4)

Arakhlem la po pijaco,
Ccindem lacce shukar lanco
Aj landa landala
Ccindem lacce sandala. (x2)

Aj landa landala
Ccindem lacce sandala. (x4)

Two sandals (translation)

I’ve meet her on her street
buying for herself a water melon

I’ve meet her on the field
buying for herself two sandals

I’ve meet here on the market
buying for herself a beautiful necklace

  1. Hi – that looks like a translation of all the verses that begin with ‘Arakhlem’ (presumably ‘I met her’), so what does the hook line mean:

    “Aj landa landala
    Ccindem lacce sandala”

    Ccindem = some part of the word ‘to buy’
    Is ‘Aj landa landala’ just a set of reinforcing sounds without any particular meaning?
