Cleopatra Stratan - Florile Dalbe (Engels vertaling)

Engels vertaling

Flowers of white

Wake up, host, from your li'l bed
Flowers of white
And give us a bagel
Flowers, flowers of white
 
Which mummy hasn't made
Flowers of white
She didn't have a fine sifter
Flowers, flowers of white
 
When she got a sifter
Flowers of white
Her bucket got a flaw
Flowers, flowers of white
 
Mummy scolded daddy
Flowers of white
Why did the bucket get a flaw
Flowers, flowers of white
 
When she had fixed the bucket
Flowers of white
The oven wouldn't start
Flowers, flowers of white
 
When the oven was hot
Flowers of white
The new year had already come
Flowers, flowers of white
 
Flowers, flowers of white
Flowers, flowers of white

Some translators translate "florile dalbe" with "white flowers". I prefer the more poetic "flowers of white" since it matches better the Romanian original. The repeating white flowers in this song are referring to the snow flakes. The song itself is a very famous Romanian Christmas Carol every kid knows.
