Kanak Szomasz


Song by Ando Drom, from the album: ‘Gypsy Life on the Road’, considered one of the best albums of Hungarian Roma music. This song also features Kalman Balogh on the cimbalom.

Kanak Szomasz
Kanak szomasz terno savo,
phiravasz me zeleno kapapo.
Nasz maj bajo, nasz ma khancsi,
baxtalo szomasz atuncsi.

Kanak gilem ando foro,
kindem mange zeleno kalapo.
Xutrel manro kon baxtalo,
tavesz zsaszto, taj baxtalo.

Mikor kicsi gyerek voltam,
kicsi zöld kapaot hordtam.
Nem volt nekem semmi gondom,
szerencsés voltam és boldog.

Mikor a vásárba mentem,
kicsi zöld kapaot vettem.
Kap kenyeret, aki éhes,
légy szerencsés egészséges.

When I was a little child (translation)
When I was a little a kid
I used to wear a little green hat
I had no worries at all
I was lucky and happy.

When I went to the fair
I bought my little green hat
those hungry will be given bread
be lucky and healthy (brother)
