Opa Cupa


Me sem gojo chavoro,
Chela oro majlacho,
Oj andale mandale
E chora man astaren.

Kas me astarava,
Me mange asava,
Samo Ruza ni mangel,
Voj mande puchel

O opa cupa so te mange chaje muka,
Ti daj ka merel ako ni cheles.
Lumbaj , lumbaj, lumbalaj ajde ajde ajde,
Lumbaj , lumbaj, lumbalaj ajde ajde ajde.

Sa e chaja chelena,
Voj ni mangel te chelel,
Oj andale mandale,
Mudarel man o devel.

Ava Ruza ava khel
Pa i tiro mek avel,
Oj andale mandale
E sviracha bashaven.

O opa cupa so te mange chaje muka,
Ti daj ka merel ako ni cheles.
Lumbaj , lumbaj, lumbalaj ajde ajde ajde,
Lumbaj , lumbaj, lumbalaj ajde ajde ajde.

Chao maj o hutalo,
I Ruza so ni chelel,
Oj andale mandale,
an bobo ki astarel

Ava Ruza ava khel
Pa i tiro mek avel,
Oj andale mandale
E sviracha bashaven.

O opa cupa so te mange chaje muka,
Ti daj ka merel ako ni cheles.
Lumbaj , lumbaj, lumbalaj ajde ajde ajde,
Lumbaj , lumbaj, lumbalaj ajde ajde ajde.

Dulce-i Vinul


R:
Dulce-i vinul
Dulce-i vinul
Dar mai dulce-i mandra mea
Dulce-i vinul
Dulce-i vinul
Dar mai dulce-i dragostea

Si pe drum si pe la sat, mai
Tot ruomanu’ e barbat, mai
Pai pana ce si pana cand?
Oi m-ai bea pe-acest pamant
Oi m-ai bea pe-acest pamant

Marioara, gura ta
Floare micsunea
Ce-o sa-i spui tu
Lui badita acuma
Pe la crasma nu mai treci
Nu te mai petreci
Nu te lasa mandra
Sa mai pleci

Refren:..

Pana cand mandruta mea, mai
Mi-o aduce dragosatea, mai
Pa n-oi m-ai bea vin din ulcior
Ca sa fiu mandru ficior
Ca sa fiu mandru ficior

Cand ramane singurea
Mandrulita ta
Iti trimite dorul dupa mine
Nu te lasa sa incini
Un pahar de vin
Nici de tulburel
Nici de pelin

Refren:..

Bun Ii Vinul Ghiurghiuliu

Today some romanian songs, also sung by Gypsies


Bun e vinul ghiurghiuliu, tri, ri, ri, li, ri, di, ri, la, ri, da, ri, da,
Cules toamna pe trziu, tri, ri
Mai pe bruma, mai pe omat, tri, ri
Mult mai beau si nu ma-mbat! tri, ri
Bun e vinul, bine-mi place, tri, ri
Nu stiu viei ce i-oi face? tri, ri
As calca-o cu piciorul, tri, ri
Si-as bea vinul cu ulciorul! tri, ri
De s-ar face via-n casa, tri, ri
As lega-o cu matasa, tri, ri
Si-as tinea-o numa-n brata. tri, ri
M-am jurat ca n-oi mai bea, tri, ri
Dar eu nu ma pot tinea! tri, ri
Vinisor de poama rara, tri, ri
Se suie-n cap far de scara, tri, ri
Vinisor de bobiti verzi, tri, ri
Face pe om sa nu-l vezi. tri, ri
Bun e vinul si gustos, tri, ri
Cnd il bei cu om frumos! tri, ri
Da de-l bei cu om urt, tri, ri
Se opreste vinu-n gt!

Great Is Rose Wine
(every line is sung twice)

Great is rose wine
Harvested in late autumn
Some on frost, some on snow
A lot I drink and I don’t get drunk

I swore not drink again
But I cannot refrain
Great is wine, and well I like it
Don’t know what I’m going to do to that vine

Beloved wine, of a rare fruit
Climbs to the head without a ladder
Beloved wine of green grapes
Makes the man so that you won’t see him

Great is wine and tasteful as well
When you drink it with handsome people
But if you drink it with ugly people
The wine gets stuck in your throat

I Ćirikli

Ćirikli ka kerdŏvav
tuθe mangav te avav
sa o drom mangav te prastav
bi tiro naśti beśav.

Sosθar gelăn tu naśe manθar?
Sosθar man tu bistardan?
So kerdom tuqe, pućhav tut
kerè’a man te rovav

Ćirikli ka kerdŏvav
tuθe mangav te avav
aver sa mangav te bistrav
paśe tuθe te merav.

The Bird
I am going to become a bird
I want to go near you
I want to run all the way
I cannot bear to be without you.

Why did you run away from me?
Why did you forget me?
What did I do, tell me,
you make me cry.

I am going to become a bird
I want to go near you
I want to forget all the rest
And die near you.
