Oameni buni, am plecat sa ma plimb prin norul de cenusa vulcanica. Daca n-am incotro, ma si intorc. Sa fiti cuminti.

Ask me where I go tonight
I go back to today last year
Me and you had to make each other happier
now theres hope with everything

Its hard enough to feel the world
as it is and hold on anything
Without these quiet times you’ve brought round here

I’m Gonna have to run away
I’m sure that I belong some other place
I’ve seen another side of all
I’ve seen it keeps me wondering where my family is

Its hard enough to see the world as it is
and hold on anything
Without these quiet times coming round here

Now I miss you…
Now I want you…
But I cant have you…
Even when your here…

Suppose I have to take you with me
broken mind I’d rather leave you here
To forget everything you’ve seen
and known erase every idea

And you walk up in the street
and hold my hand and smile
Well I wont be taken in
Cause I know how it turns out
And it takes me back to
these quiet times coming round here

Ar fi bun un razboi
Sa mai rareasca
Din cand in cand
Pe cativa dintre noi
Lumea sa se aeriseasca
Si sa poata macar cativa
Sa traiasca

Un cantec care imi aduce aminte de Cantec pentru Bucovina al lui Grigore Lese. Nu stiu care de la cine s-a inspirat, posibil sa se fi intalnit in transhumanta cu turmele pe undeva pe la mijloc.

Armaname oamini vruts
Io va voi armani pi tuts, lele, voi armani
Armaname oamini vruts
Io va voi armani pi tuts, lele, voi armani.
Di una eta him armani
Dit papani si stripapani, voi armani.

Moscropolea hoara avdzata
Tora iasti si ea chiruta, voi armani.
Moscropolea hoara avdzata
Tora iasti si ea chiruta, voi armani.
Musata hoara s-asparsi
Na chiatra di ia nu-armasi, voi armani.

Musati hori avura armanii
M-a li asparsira panganii, voi armani.
Musati hori avura armanii
M-a li asparsira panganii, voi armani.
Musata hoara Gramustea
U-asparsi Ali Pasa, lele, voi armani

Multu sed mi minduiescu,
Plangu nu pot s-danasescu, voi armani.
Multu sed mi minduiescu,
Plangu nu pot s-danasescu, voi armani.
S-asparsira a noastri hoari,
Multu inima mi doari, voi armani.
Di una eta him armani
Dit papani si stripapani, lele, voi armani.

Mie mi s-a parut amuzanta melodia cu eclipsa de Anul Nou, dar daca dl Niku (crestea-i-ar traficu lui) a zis ca e defetista si demoralizatoare, am alta moralizatoare de sarbatori. E din Maramures, dintr-o Romanie curata, si imi place maxim:
(Sper ca Trilulilu sa nu mai stearga fisiere, dupa cum obisnuieste)

De-ar si dorul vanzator,
Mai dorule, dor,
Face-m-as cumparator,
Mai dorule, dor.

Si-as scoate masa la poarta,
Mai dorule, dor,
Vinde-as dor la lumea toata,
Mai dorule, dor.

Vinde-as si n-as cumpara,
Mai dorule, dor,
Ca de dor sa pot scapa,
Mai dorule, dor.

Oarecand si mai demult,
Mai dorule, dor,
Avut-am dor de vandut,
Mai dorule, dor.

Amu s-o sucit lumea,
Mai dorule, dor,
Ca si eu as cumpara,
Mai dorule, dor,
De-ar mai vinde cineva,
Mai dorule, dor.

Intre doi ani de criza, o eclipsa prapadita numai buna pentru noaptea de revelion. Doar ca ploua si luna albastra nu se va vedea, dar se va simti. La multi ani, oameni buni! 😉

La noi sunt codri verzi de brad,
Asta-i tara!
Si rauri ce se mulg in vad,
Asta-i tara!
La noi in buzunare vantu-ndeasa lipsa,
De la ei privesti lumina,
La noi: eclipsa.

Care-ti vand eclipsa,
Care-ascunde lipsa,
Care spui ca lipsa
E mai mare ca eclipsa?
Ca dupa atatea tepe nu e de mirare,
Ca teapa cea mai mare ai s-o iei cu ochii-n soare.

La noi si-albastru cer e bun,
La noi orice e bun acum,
Ca si Big Bangul cand a explodat
S-a dus la ei lumina, la noi: eclipsa.

La noi bogat e-n subteran,
Se-aglomereaza an de an,
Pe dos cum Zeama Chioara hotarat prezis-a,
La capatul tunelului: eclipsa.

Asta-i tara, blanda ca si mioara.

Poverty stricken
But still I’m a-stickin’
To the things I know to be facts
One day it’s feathers
And the next day chicken
While I’m picking my yakety axe.

Everybody says that I never will get far,
Keeping out of work by picking this guitar
Livin’ on a shoe-string,
Putting off things like a shave and a hair cut.

Money don’t matter
As long as I scatter
A little bit of happiness around
If people keep a grinning
I figure I’m a winning
My good old yakety sound

City folks go around turnin’ up their noses and countin’
Their greenbacks and smellin’ their roses
But I wouldn’t trade my yakety axe,
Even for a T-bone

I’m confessin’
I never took a lesson,
All my notes are a matter of guessin’
Hoping they’ll come out in some kinda of manner
That’ll make the yakety sound.

So if you’re in the mood
And your feet start tapping
And you feel laid back
And your hands start clapping
Then I’ll have done
What I wanted to from way back
You’re diggin’ my yakety axe

Now, A Pick

Hey, I’m in love,
My fingers keep on clicking to the beating of my heart.
Hey, I can’t stop my feet,
Ebony and ivory and dancing in the street.
Hey, it’s because of you,
The world is in a crazy, hazy hue.

My heart is beating like a jungle drum.

Man, you got me burning,
I’m the moment between the striking and the fire.
Hey, read my lips,
Cause all they say is kiss, kiss, kiss.
No, it’ll never stop,
My hands are in the air, yes I’m in love.

My heart is beating like a jungle drum.

Gasit in Bodega cu gratar

I don’t mind if you go, I don’t mind if you take it slow
I don’t mind if you say yes or no, I don’t mind at all

I don’t care if you live or die, couldn’t care less if you laugh or cry
I don’t mind if you crash your flight, I don’t mind at all

I don’t mind if you come or go, I don’t mind if you say no
Couldn’t care less, baby let it flow, ’cause I don’t care at all

I don’t care if you sink or swim, lock me out or let me in
Where I’m going or where I’ve been, I don’t care at all

I don’t care if the goverment falls, implements more futile laws
I don’t care if the nation stalls, and I don’t care at all

I don’t care if you tear down trees, I don’t feel the hotter breeze
Sink in dust in dying seas, and I don’t care at all

I don’t mind if the culture crumbles, I don’t mind if religion stumbles
I can’t hear the speakers mumble, and I don’t care at all

I don’t care if the third world fries, it’s hotter there I’m not
Baby I can watch whole nations die, and I don’t care at all

I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind,
I don’t mind, I don’t mind at all

I don’t mind about people’s fears, authority no longer hears
Send a social engineer, and I don’t mind at all
