Djelem Djelem by Barcelona Gipsy Orchestra

A beautiful gypsy song in the back of my head today. That longing that touches the soul…

Djelem, djelem, lungone dromensa
maladilem baxtale romensa
Djelem, djelem, lungone dromensa
Maladilem baxtale romensa
Ay, romale, ay, chavale,
Ay romale, katar tumen aven
Le tserensa baxtale dromensa
Vi-man sas u bari familiya
Tai mudardya la e kali legiya
Aven mansa sa lumiake roma
Kai putaile le romane droma
Ake vryama – ushti rom akana
Ame xutasa mishto kai kerasa
Ay, romale, ay chavale

==== English translation:

I went, I went on long roads
I met happy Roma
O Roma where do you come from,
With tents on happy roads?
O Roma, O fellow Roma
I once had a great family
The Black Legions¹ murdered them
Come with me Roma from all the world
For the Romani roads have opened
Now is the time, rise up Roma now,
We will rise high if we act
O Roma, O fellow Roma
