From Tony Gatlif’s movie ‘Gadjo Dilo’ or The crazy extranger. The story is about a french guy who travells arround Romania looking for the singer Nora Luca, whos voice charmed his dead father when he was alive. In the clip: Adrian Simionescu singing, Rona Hartner  dancing and the actor Romain Duris.

Tutti frutti

Tutti frutti te khelas,
Te khelas te gil’abas.
Te khelas te gil’abas,
Le romensa te mangas.

Či žanav so te kerav,
Palo late me merav!
Či žanav so te kerav,
Palo late me merav!

Sa o roma, daje, khelena,
Sa o roma, daje, pilena!
Sa o roma, daje, khelena,
Sa o roma, daje, von pilena!

Či žanav so te kerav,
Palo late me merav!
Či žanav so te kerav,
Palo late me merav!

Miri romni sy shukar
Sar o luludi dai bar!
Miri romni sy bruneto
Ay, sy mai bari talento!

Či žanav so te kerav,
Palo late me merav!
Či žanav so te kerav,
Palo late me merav!

Translation:

With tutti frutti soft drink
we’re dancing and singing
and living it up we’ll smash the bottles.

Chorus:
I don’t know what can I do, for her I die.

All the Roma, mother, are dancing,
all the Roma, mother, are drinking (?)
Uncle Uvil is “lid drunk”.
His wife Marga is afraid because she thinks he’ll go off with someone else.

      yaka les yeux
      rati la nuit …c’est pareil en inde ?
