Parni Romni

Gypsy Bohemians – Tockolotoc composed this song about their band leader, who once married a white – non gypsy – woman, or gadza. This song is from the original album Kale bala, kale jakha (Black hair, black eyes)

Parni Romni

Kana nane e chaj pati vaľi
ta mi čhivel pes andro pani.
Kana hiňi igen barikani
nane šoha lačhi chulaňi.

The me mange iľom gadža
ma kamavas čhajen romanen
kaj te dikhen ola Roma
hoj man hiňi parňi romňi
romňi, parňi romňi.

La gandžaha menge me dživavas
so kamavas mange keravas
hoj ča imar adaďives džanav
kaj la romaňa ča me kamav.
Lakre šukar jakhora
lakre kale balora.

The me mange iľom gadža
ma kamavas čhajen romanen
kaj te dikhen ola Roma
hoj man hiňi parňi romňi
romňi, parňi romňi.

Bijav

Song by Goran Bregovic

Bijav

Baro devla dikh dikh dikh tu devlea
Akava them na dikhlja
Sveti djordje azdajenca
Sa andjelja mustakjenca
Bahtale romenca
Sa bijavenca
Baro devla dikh dikh dikh tu devlea

 Akava them na dikhlja
Bibija sa pe chavenca
Bahtale romenca
Sa bijavencaDjamutrea djamutrea
Suza terna tu avea
A tu devla sar o mace
Te bijangon chave lace
Ka vazdolpe viski viski
Ka pijolpe malboro
Majbut majbut rakija
Bijav si amaro

Kavijari kavijari
Kavijari nane
Deni trube deni trube
Kurav ta cemane
Star babe trin teze
Sel selea ka han meze

O poštaris avel

A version of Vera Bila’s song by Sabrosas

O poštaris avel

O postaris avel
telegramos avel (x2)

sarmeles genava genava
opala cingela cingea
dzamore dzamore dzamore
na kamav tut (x2)

idze postar idze
telegram mi nese (x2)

jak ja ho citala citala
vlasy si trhala trhala
nechod mi do dvora do dvora
bo ja netvoja (x2)

Elhagyott a feleségem

Song by Parno Graszt

 

Elhagyott a feleségem
Elhagyott a feleségem
nincs a földön senkim sem.
Árva fejem hová tegyem
nincsen helyem sehol sem

Búsan élem a világom
fáj a szívem, sírok én
Elhagyott a feleségem
elhagyott, mert iszok én,

Translation
My wife left/abandoned me,
i dont have anybody on this earth.
where should i lay/put my orphane head,

I dont have place anywhere. ,
I live my life with sorrow,
my heart hurts, and I cry ,

my wife left/abandoned me,
my wife abandoned me,
because i drink to much.

Le Vent

This song featuring in Tony Gatlif’s Transylvania is originally from Ando Drom’s album Kay Phirel o Del, and called Zold Az Erdo. La Vent from the film Transylvania is just a different arrangement of the original song, but worth to be featured again on the blog.

Le Vent
zold az erdo, zold a hegy is,
a szerensce jon is, megy is
gondok kese husunkba vag
Kepmutato lett a vilag

egesz vilag ellensegunk
uzott tolvajokkent elunk
nem loptunk mi esak egy szoget
Jezus verzo tenyerebol

Isten konyorulj meg nekunk
ne szenvedjen tovabb nepunk
megatkoztal meg is vertel
orok csavargokka tetel

Translation:
green is the forest, green is the hill
fortune comes and fortune goes
knife of troubles cuts our flesh
the world has turned two-faced

the whole world is against us
we live like thieves on the run
we haven’t stolen, just a nail
from the bloody palm of Jesus

Lord have mercy
end our people’s suffering
you’ve beaten and condemned us
forever wanderers we’ve become
