Cuckoo

Romanian

Cucul

Cântă și săracul cucul,
Cântă și săracul cucul
Că i-o spart dușmanii cuibul,
Că i-o spart dușmanii cuibul.

Lasă, cuce, nu cânta,
Lasă, cuce, nu cânta,
Că tu altu' cuib ți-i fa',
Că tu altu' cuib ți-i fa'.

Cucule, cucuțule,
Cucule, cucuțule,
Mută-ți cuibu' de-acole,
Mută-ți cuibu' de-acole.

De-oi si iară supărat,
De-oi si iară supărat,
Ți-i afla cuibuțul spart,
Ți-i afla cuibuțul spart.

Cuce, eu nu ți-s dușman,
Cuce, eu nu ți-s dușman,
Da' pă tine am alean,
Da' pă tine am alean,

Că tu cânți, cuce, pă fag,
Că tu cânți, cuce, pă fag,
De la mândra mi-aduci drag,
De la mândra mi-aduci drag.
Că tu cânți cucu-n izvor,
De la mândra mi-aduci dor.

Cuckoo

The poor cuckoo also sings,
The poor cuckoo also sings
That enemies have broken its nest,
That enemies have broken its nest.

Leave, cuckoo, don’t sing,
Leave, cuckoo, don’t sing.
That you would make another nest,
That you would make another nest.

Cuckoo, come on, cuckoo,
Cuckoo, come on, cuckoo,
Move your nest from here,
Move your nest from here.

Away from the sheep and again be sorrowful,
Away from the sheep and again be sorrowful,
To learn about your broken nest,
To learn about your broken nest.

Cuckoo, I don’t hate you,
Cuckoo, I don’t hate you,
But I have sadness for you,
But I have sadness for you,

That you sing, cuckoo, for the beech tree (or honeycomb?),
That you sing, cuckoo, for the beech tree,
Of the dear sweetheart you would bring me,
Of the dear sweetheart you would bring me.
So that your singing, cuckoo, is the source,
Of the longing that you bring me for my sweetheart.
