Da mama cu biciu-n mine

Gabi Lunca

Da mama cu biciu-n mine
Foaie verde maracine,
Da, mama, cu biciu’-n mine!
Da, mama, cu biciu’-n mine,
Aaaaa…
Ca n-am ascultat de tine!
Draga nenii,
De tine dac’-ascultam,
Aaaa…aoleo
Ce fericita eram!
La toata lumea oi spune
Sa nu se joace ca mine
Ca eu m-am jucat cu focu’
Aaaaa…au
Si era sa-mi pierd norocu’, ma…
Draga nenii,
M-am jucat cu dragostea,
Aaaa…aoleo!
Nene, si mi-am distrus linistea!
Dac-ai stii, maicuta mea,

Cum mi-e inima de grea!
Cum ma rog noaptea la stele!
Aaaa…au
Sa spuna gandurile mele,
Draga nenii…
C-asa soarta ca a mea
Aaaa….aoleo!
Nene, nu doresc la nimenea!
Cin’-n-asculta de parinti
Plange cu lacrimi fierbinti, maaa
Eu una n-am ascultat
Aaaa…..au
Si numai de rau am dat, maaa!
Draga nenii….
In viata cat oi trai
Aaaa….au
Mama, la tine ma voi gandï, ma!

Translation
Green leaf of thorns,
Hit me, mamma, with the whip!
Hit me, mamma, with the whip,
‘Cause I haven’t listened to you!
Oh, my dear,
If I had listened to you,
I would have been so happy!
I will tell everybody
Not to play, as I did!
‘Cause I’ve played with fire
And I’ve almost lost my luck!
Oh, my dear,
I’ve played with love
And I’ve ruined my peace!

If you’d only know, mummy,
How heavy it’s my heart now!
How I pray to the stars at night!
Let them tell you my thoughts!
Oh, my dear,
‘Cause a destiny like mine
I wish nobody, my dear!
Who doesn’t listen to his parents
Sheds bitter tears!
I haven’t listened
And I met only harm!
Oh, my dear,
As long as I live
Mamma, I will thïnk about you!

  1. Foarte frumoasa, clara si expresiva voce, tocmai de ce avea nevoie textul melodiei care are un mesaj de o profunzime deosebita, ce transmite o invatatura care nicicand nu va fi “demodata”, intrucat viata ne pune in cale multe capcane, astfel incat, deseori platim prea scump pentru cea mai mica greseala… iar consecintele ne dezvaluie cat de valoros este sfatul unui parinte, cu adevarat iubitor, pentru copilul lui.
