Rakia

Rakija

Rakiju volim da pijem

Mrtav pijan i na ljude ljut
krenuo sam ja na ovaj put
otišo sam daleko od kuće
ali tamo nema radže vruće

Na zapadu sva su burad prazna
o, o, o
bez rakije najgora je kazna
volim, volim, volim, volim da je pijem
nađite je, sve ću, sve ću da vas bijem

Džaba svetu sva njegova blaga
kad on ne zna gde je meni draga
vina slatka i pomalo pitka
nigde nema takvoga napitka

Na zapadu sva su burad prazna
o, o, o
bez rakije najgora je kazna
volim, volim, volim, volim da je pijem
nađite je, sve ću, sve ću da vas bijem

Rakija me odrzala, zato njojzi hvala
uvek mi je nove snage dala
uvek nove snage dala
Nemam brata, ni sestre, ni druga
nikog nemam ja
rakija je moja i sreća i tuga

Rakia

I love to drink Rakia

Blind drunk and angry on folks
I've went on this road
I've went away from my home
But here doesn't have the hot rakia

On the west every casks are empty
O, o, o
Without rakia, life is the worst punishment
I love, love, love, love to drink it
Find me some or everyone, I'll beat everyone

All of the treasure is not worth for this world
When this world doesn't know where is my darling
Sweet wine is a little bit smooth
But also nowhere as good as this beverage

On the west every casks are empty
O, o, o
Witout rakia, life is the worst punishment
I love, love, love, love to drink it
Find me some or everyone, I'll beat everyone

Rakia has kept me up in life, I owe it a big thanks
It has always gave new strengths
Always gave new strengths
I don't got neither brother nor friend
I don't got anyone
Rakia is my either happiness and sadness

Good translation! I'd just like to make a few suggestions about cleaning up the English. I've kept your original structure and I'm just making a number of minor changes. At the end I used a bit of non-standard English to carry across the rough sound and the bluesy feel of it.

I love to drink Rakia

Blind drunk and angry at people
I've set off on this road
I've gone far away from my home
But there there's no rakia

In the west all the barrels are empty
O, o, o
Without rakia, life is the worst punishment
I love, love, love, love to drink it
Find me some or I'll, I'll beat everyone up

All of the treasure is not worth for this world
When this world doesn't know where my darling is
Sweet wine is a little bit smooth
But nowhere near as good as this kind of drink

In the west all the barrels are empty
O, o, o
Without rakia, life is the worst punishment
I love, love, love, love to drink it
Find me some or I'll, I'll beat everyone up

Rakia has kept me up in life, for that I owe it a big thanks
It has always gave new strengths
Always gave new strengths
I ain't got neither brother nor friend
I ain't got nobody
Rakia is both my happiness and my sadness
