Zöld az erdő, zöld a hegy is

Standard

 Gypsy Hymn in Hungarian singed by The Gandhi School Choir. The Gandhi School is a residential high school for Roma (Gypsy) students from Hungary.

Zöld az erdő, zöld a hegy is
A szerencse jön is, megy is
Gondok kése husunkba vág
Képmutató lett a világ

Egész világ ellenségünk
Űzött tolvajokként élünk
Nem loptunk mi csak egy szöget
Jézus vérző tenyeréből

Isten, könyörülj meg nékünk
Ne szenvedjen tovább népünk
Megátkoztál, meg is vertél
Örök csavargóvá tettél

Lyrics in romani
Partialli appearing in Tony Gatlif’s film ‘Latcho Drom’. Bittersweet clip.

Zeleno vesh, zeleno plaj,
amari bax, avel thaj zhal,
gindongo buss ando mas del
andej luma buzhanglipej.

Intrego luma dushmanoj,
sako rom sar chor nashadoj,
chi chordam jekh karfin numa,
andaj Jezusheski palma.

Devla zhutin pe amende,
na de mila pe romende,
amaja dan thaj vi mardan,
nashadeske amen shutan.

Translation:
Green, green of the hills and woods
Come n go like our fortunes
Want n need cut all into us
Ya two-faced world, deep n sharp

Living like thieves hounded, on the run
The whole world turned against us
But the only thing we’d ever stolen
Was the bleeding nail from Jesus’s hand

God show your mercy to our people
Don’t let suffer more the feeble
You’ve rained torments on us
Made us for ever roaming vagrants

This blog is for everyone who loves Roma culture, music and dances. I'm not an expert, just an admirer who wants to share her passion. This blog wouldn't been possible without the Danza Duende project in my life. Thanks to my Gypsy Duende masters to teach me all I know.
