 SOME POEMS AND DITTOS VARIOUS SOURCES:-

O Bahtolo Mongemengro  BY Francis Hindes Groome 1880

Dordi the toovin tatti pani
Dordi the tatcheno Romani chals
With the boshomengro kellin'
Muk us give our gilli pals!
Jukels ful for Prastermengros
Mas for Kaulos on the drom,
Kongeris were but kaired for rashis,
Staribens for dinlos kom

What's a puknius, so si wongar,
What's to be a boro rei?
So as we lels a Kushto Jivaben,
Why should we kesser sar or kai?
 Jukels ful for Prastermengros
Mas for Kaulos on the drom,
Kongeris were but kaired for rashis,
Staribens for dinlos kom
Adre the divvus pennin Hukabens
All about the tem we jas
And adre the rarti in a granzi
Choomer our raklis opre the kas!

Jukels ful for Prastermengros
Mas for Kaulos on the drom,
Kongeris were but kaired for rashis,
Staribens for dinlos kom
That the rei's vardo with it's kistamengros
Prasters fereder, who might pen?
Or the the wudrus of the rommer'd rauni,
Diks any fereder Kamoben?

Jukels ful for Prastermengros
Mas for Kaulos on the drom,
Kongeris were but kaired for rashis,
Staribens for dinlos kom
Jivobens kaired o' dosta kovas
Mendi'll kek kesser how they av
Muk them rokker about decorum
Who are atraish for their kushto nav!

Jukels ful for Prastermengros
Mas for Kaulos on the drom,
Kongeris were but kaired for rashis,
Staribens for dinlos kom
Then kushto bokh to tan and sasta
Kushto bokh to Kaulos sor
And Kushto bokh to the nongo chavis
Muks pen on us sor Amushaw!
Jukels ful for Prastermengros
Mas for Kaulos on the drom,
Kongeris were but kaired for rashis,
Staribens for dinlos kom!
Muks pen on us sor Amushaw!

 Tatcho Kom - Romni's Gilli True Love - Wife's Song

Mi dukerdom i rawni
Adrey dova bawri kair
Kek kawli chovihani
vel ker lis kushtier
 
Man pukkerdom rinkeni kovas
A barvelo rye te sar
Yoi das amengi luva
Mi pordo vast ajaw!
 
Oh mi sosti rokker, dukker
Gorgios adrom,
Booti, booti, sor pa tootie
Miro kamlo rom!
 
I fortunetold the lady
In that big house
No gypsy witch
could do it better
 
I told her pretty things
A rich gentleman and how
She gave to me money
My full hand so!
 
Oh how I chatter, flatter gentiles near and far
Working, working, all for you
My beloved man!

 Oh Romanies shan jongar
Mi shom kek dineli chai.
Mi garedom o vonger
Te kekeno jindas kai
  
Mi kindom kushto varo
I rarti, kunjerni
O moriklo si keri,
av,diri tatcho, si
 
Pawno varo, pawno luva
kettini dre e moriklo
Booti, booti. sor pa tootie
Kamlo pirino!
 
Oh Romanies are cunning
I am not a foolish girl
I hid away the money
And nobody knew where
 
I bought good flour
the nighttime, secretly.
The cake is made
come, dear true, t'is
 
White flour, white money
together within a cake
Grafting, grafting, all for you
Beloved sweetheart!
