Ciganine sviraj, sviraj
Ciganine, ti sto sviras
zasto moju dusu diras
da li znas za teske boli
sto mi tuga srca mori
da li znas za moje boli
sad moj dragi drugu voli

Ref.
Nekad sam bila ja
srecna i voljena
dok druga zena
nije moju ljubav uzela

Druga ga miluje
on za njom luduje
a moje srce usamljeno
za njim boluje

Nekada smo sretni bili
nasu ljubav nismo krili
mislila sam, dani srece
da nikada proci nece

Ref.

Ciganine, sviraj, sviraj
pesmom moju dusu diraj
nek’ mi tvoja pesma kaze
kad’ me ljubi sto me laze

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.

  1. I discovered Ternipe through your blog, I love them. Hungarian gyspies rock.

    Do you know The Dreadnoughts? They are something like celtic-gypsy-folk-punk but maybe you’ll like them anyway. Here are some links just in case.


    • Hi! I’m glad you discovered Ternipe, It’s one of my favourite gypsy bands! This group is cool too, yeah their style is difficult to define😛 but I like it! thanks a lot!

      • Glad you like them!
        I don’t think I saw videos from Les Yeux Noirs on your site, it’s gypsy and yiddish music, you should like them! Here are a few links:

      • Hello! I know, I really like them but I’ve been trying to find their lyrics without success…thanks for posting the videos!🙂 You gave me energy to keep on trying!

  2. I found the lyrics for Les deux guitares! They are on this website: http://www.barynya.com/russian_lyrics.stm

    Here are the lyrics in russian:

    Две гитары зазвенев
    жалобно заныли
    С детства памятный мотив,
    друг любимый, ты ли?

    эх, раз, ещё раз,
    ещё много много раз,
    эх, раз, ещё раз,
    ещё много много раз!

    Вот там звезда одна горит
    так ярко и мучительно
    Лучами сердце шевелит,
    дразня его язвительно

    эх, раз, что там раз,
    ещё много много раз,
    эх, раз, ещё раз,
    ещё много много раз!

    И от зари, и до зари
    тоскую, мучусь, сетую.
    Дай, боже, мне договорить
    ту песню недопетую…

    эх, раз, ещё раз,
    ещё много много раз,
    эх, раз, ещё раз,
    ещё много много раз!

    В поле ветер, огоньки,
    да дальняя дорога.
    Ноет сердце от тоски,
    а на душе тревога.

    эх, раз, что там раз,
    ещё много много раз,
    эх, раз, ещё раз,
    ещё много много раз!

    В поле маки, да васильки.
    все они мне любы.
    Васильки – глаза её,
    а маки – её губы.

    эх, раз, ещё раз,
    ещё много много раз,
    эх, раз, ещё раз,
    ещё много много раз!

    Что ты ноешь, да болишь,
    Ретиво сердечко,
    Я увидел у неё
    да на руке колечко

    эх, раз, ещё раз,
    ещё много много раз,
    эх, раз, ещё раз,
    ещё много много раз!

    And the translation in english:

    Two guitars in next apartment
    Playing tune in minor key…
    Let me go to supermarket
    Get myself another ski…

    Sing it once, sing it twice!
    Sing it many-many times!
    Many time is not too many,
    So, let’s do it one more times!

    There is a sign on my wall
    That says I am married not at all…
    it’s because my name is Vanya
    and I don’t have any money.

    Sing it once, sing it twice!
    Sing it many-many times!
    Many time is not too many,
    So, let’s do it one more times!

    My friend Boris from New York
    Never doing any works.
    He just sitting home alone,
    Thinking where he belongs.

    Sing it once, sing it twice!
    Sing it many-many times!
    Many time is not too many,
    So, let’s do it one more times!

    Russian dances-shmenser Sasha
    Just arrived from Belorussia
    He is snoring very loud
    You don’t want to find out!

    Sing it once, sing it twice!
    Sing it many-many times!
    Many time is not too many,
    So, let’s do it one more times!

    I rent my Russian car to Frank,
    I sold my house to Citibank.
    For all that money I have got…
    Awesome yellow I-Pod!

    Sing it once, sing it twice!
    Sing it many-many times!
    Many time is not too many,
    So, let’s do it one more times!

    You are Gypsy, I am Gypsy
    We are Gypsy more or less
    You are stealing people’s money
    I am stealing something else

    Sing it once, sing it twice!
    Sing it many-many times!
    Many time is not too many,
    So, let’s do it one more times!

    Lyrics by Mikhail Smirnov

    I’ll look for other songs’ lyrics when I have time.
