I see you like Keba now Tongue

Calusarul     February 15th, 2012

Yeah. Because he also sings in Vlach Romanian. I'm expanding the frontiers of my mind Tongue
And I'm also imitating your editing style now because it looks better. Hope you don't mind. Smile

Ah, and someone said on youtube: "I want to drink all night when i listen this song......"
I felt I needed to know this song makes a guy drink all night. =))

Hahaha, well don't get too drunk Calusarul! I don't mind at all Wink

Calusarul     February 16th, 2012

Tell me, MayGoLoco, why can't anyone comfort Keba? What's his sorrow?

(I can't get drunk, I get headaches when cross the two beers/glasses of wine limit. I don't like vodka, only a bit of whiskey, but my head always warns me before getting drunk.)

He's sad because his woman apparantly wants to leave him, he doesn't want her to do so. So his friends are trying to console him with drinks and songs, but it's all in vain.

I love cocktails and shots of tequila! But I keep it at a minimum Tongue

I was about to ask you "how can you tell that his woman wants to leave him?" But then I read the refrain again, he asks her not to leave him. I thought he was talking to his friends there, asking them not to leave him. Now it makes sense. What's a city without your woman beside you?!? Burn, burn, burn... Keba is very cool, me thinks me likes him now.

You know, MayGoLoco, I've just thought: God didn't want me to know this song when I was a bit younger and a girl left me. I could have burnt the entire Balkans... if not the whole world.

Hahaha, well I'm glad Keba just kept it to half the city Wink Did she come from Venus? Tongue
