Carul cu boi

Pân’ ce electricitate
Căi ferate și vapori
Încă nu erau aflate
Mergeau toate fără zor
Câci bâtranii erau moi
Își mânau carul cu boi
 
Hâis, cea ! Hâis, cea ! Hâis, cea1 !
Hâis, cea ! Hâis, cea ! Hâis, cea !
 
Azi zburăm pe căi ferate
Prin vagoane îndesate
Sosind cu capetele sparte
Nemâncați și degeraţi
 
De cât cu atâtea nevoi
Mai bine cu car cu boi
 
Hâis, cea ! Hâis, cea ! Hâis, cea !
 
  • 1. Dreapta si stanga - direcții vocale date de țărani boilor, fără să se folosească de lanț sau frâu pentru a îi mâna

The ox driven cart

Before electricity
Train tracks and steams
Were discovered
Everything went smoothly 1
Becouse the elders were carefree
They were leading the ox driven cart
 
To the left, to the right! To the left, to the right!2
To the left, to the right! To the left, to the right!
 
Today we fly on the trains tracks 3
In boxy waggons
We arrive (to the destinaton) with broken heads
Famished and frozen
 
Its better to lead an ox driven cart
Than to have so many worries
 
To the left, to the right! To the left, to the right!
To the left, to the right! To the left, to the right!
 
  • 1. well kinda like - working nonstop, no one was lazy
  • 2. Specific words are used to lead the ox by voice, this is not how we say "left" and "right"
  • 3. kinda like reaching a flying speed
