Na Khelav, Na Gilavav


Macedonian romani song performed by kef balkan ensamble

Na Khelav, Na Gilavav
Na khelav, na gilavav,
Mi sudbina me žalinav,

So kerdžum e Devleske,
Man terne tele ke peske. (x2)

Abre Devla, so kere,
Me sem terno man ma tu tele. (x2)

O tekije me pirdžum,
Mange leko na rakljum,

Nasvalipe baro isi man,
Lestar terno me ka merav. (x2)


Duša me (da) ka tsidav,
Amane ti ačavav,

Sa o Roma ne ka pijen,
Pale mande te na roven. (x2)



I don’t dance, I don’t sing,
My fate is sad,
What did I do, God,
That you took me so young?

What did you do, God?
I am too young for you to take me.

I walk near the mosques,
I can’t find a cure for myself,
I am very sick,
From this I will die young.

My soul will die,
I will depart,
And the Roma won’t drink,
Behind my back they won’t cry.
