Eni Këndoni

Një ditë u doja të veja te shkëmbi
pash' një kopile si një fillë ar
Një trëndafil e mblodha me gjëmbë
më e mira lule që bënet në bar
Një trëndafil e mblodha me gjëmbë
më e mira lule që bënet në bar
 
Ejani, ejani, ejani gjindë
Eni, vëreni këta miq që kemi ne
Eni, eni, eni, eni, kopile, vajzë
eni, këndoni, valloni me ne
 
Flokët mbi krahë
të shplekura i bien
sytë llambarisin si ylli me natë
sa ish e bukur gjith' gjindjat e dinë
gëzimi i mëmës, dashuria e tatës
sa ish e bukur gjith' gjindjat e dinë
gëzimi i mëmës, dashuria e tatës
 
Ejani, ejani, ejani gjindë
Eni, vëreni këta miq që kemi ne
Eni, eni, eni, eni, kopile, vajzë
eni, këndoni, valloni me ne (2x)
 
Eni, eni, eni, eni, kopile, vajzë
eni, këndoni, valloni me ne

Come and sing

One day I wanted to go at the rock
I saw a young girl like a thread of gold
A rose I collected with thorns
The most beautiful flower growing in the grass
A rose I collected with thorns
The most beautiful flower growing in the grass
 
Come here, come here, come here people
Come and see the friends that we have
Come, come, come, come, young girl, lass
come, sing, dance with us
 
The untangled hair
falls on her shoulders
Her eyes shine like a star in the night
How beautiful she is, all people know it
Her mother's joy, her father's love
How beautiful she is, all people know it
Her mother's joy, her father's love
 
Come here, come here, come here people
Come and see the friends that we have
Come, come, come, come, young girl, lass
come, sing, dance with us (2x)
 
Come, come, come, come, young girl, lass
come, sing, dance with us
 
Thanks!
