 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!
