Carla's Dreams - Ratusca (English translation)

English translation

Duckling

You have
Eight creams for the face
Five creams for the hands, but..
The eyelids cream is running out
And you sigh.. (Aww!)
Only a selfie a day (cic-cic!)
Is way too few
You have so many new face expressions
Which we all want to know! (wiiii!)
Dear, if it wasn`t for you
I wouldn`t have known even now
Famous quotes from celebrities
Which your head`s full with!
Seriously, always on our feet
We read what you`re commenting
Such depth when you describe
Your thai breakfast!
 
Chorus:
You, ru-ru-ru-ru, have seven boyfriends in Peru
And all of them tell you "I love you"
You, ru-ru-ru-ru, are a sex symbol for minors
On "I want you" dot RU.* (uf-uf-uf)
You, ru-ru-ru-ru, have seven hundred friends on Facebook
And you write them "mwah-mwah-mwah-mwah"!*
You, duckling, you, (quack-quack) have pictures in Madame Tussauds
With Johnny Depp, so true!
 
Say it, come on, tell us, dear,
Come on tell us, say it!
Don`t be shy, we know you aren`t
And we also know that you know:
94 diets, chiromancy tricks
The horoscope for each day. (and!)
10 ways to avoid making children
10 spells from old women for seducing
You cook almost anything
And believe yourself to be one in one hundred thousand.
We know your old and new shoes
The name of every plush toy
And your teddy bear is envied
So much that we became
Toys ourselves long time ago.
 
Chorus:
You, ru-ru-ru-ru, have seven boyfriends in Peru
And all of them tell you "I love you"
You, ru-ru-ru-ru, are a sex symbol for minors
On "I want you" dot RU.* (uf-uf-uf)
You, ru-ru-ru-ru, have seven hundred friends on Facebook
And you write them "mwah-mwah-mwah-mwah"!*
You, duckling, you, (quack-quack) have pictures in Madame Tussauds
With Johnny Depp, so true!
 
Quack-quack-quack, quack-quack-quack,
Quack-quack-quack-quack-quack-quack-quack! x2
 
Chorus:
You, ru-ru-ru-ru, have seven boyfriends in Peru
And all of them tell you "I love you"
You, ru-ru-ru-ru, are a sex symbol for minors
On "I want you" dot RU. (uf-uf-uf)
You, ru-ru-ru-ru, have seven hundred friends on Facebook
And you write them "mwah-mwah-mwah-mwah"!
You, duckling, you, (quack-quack) have pictures in Madame Tussauds
With Johnny Depp, so true!

Author's comments:

"I want you" dot RU - I assume this is a Russian dating website.
"mwah-mwah-mwah-mwah" - Interjection used to describe kissing.

Note that the chorus is not written in grammatically correct Romanian but rather how it sounds with a Moldavian accent.

I have a little request to make... If this chorus is written in a Moldavian dialect or accent, is it a hassle to you, if I ask you to note for me how it would look like in "proper" Romanian? It would be very interesting and informative for me to see the difference.

Well, write-wise there's no such thing as a different dialect. Even though we have many accents depending on the regions, the properly written Romanian stays the same everytime. This chorus is written the way it would sound in the specific accent, same as you would write "Bruv" instead of "Bro" to reflect the UK accent. The "proper" way would be like this:

"Tu, ru-ru-ru-ru, ai șapte boyfriendzi (boyfriends) în Peru
Și toți îți spun "I love you"
Tu. ru-ru-ru-ru, ești sex simbol pentru minori
Pe eu te vreau de mult punct RU. (uf-uf-uf)
Tu, ru-ru-ru-ru, ai șapte sute de friendzi (friends) pe Facebook
Și le scrii "mwah-mwah-mwah"
Tu, rățușco tu, ai poze în Madame Tussauds
Cu Johnny Depp, așa de true!"
