Quan jo n'era

Quan jo n'era petitet
M'alegrava i divertia
I ensonava el flobiol,
Flobiol i tamborinet
Lai!
Lum la-rai-lum la-rai-rum
Lai!
Lum la-rai-lum la-ra-la-ra
 
I el flobiol n'era d'or,
Tamborinet de plata fina.
Me ne n'he cantant, sonant
A la porta de l'aimia
Lai!
Lum la-rai-lum la-rai-rum
Lai!
Lum la-rai-lum la-ra-la-ra
 
[Instrumental]
 
Me ne n'he cantant, sonant
A la porta de l'aimia;
Les noies d'aquell carrer
En finestra n'han eixides
Lai!
Lum la-rai-lum la-rai-rum
Lai!
Lum la-rai-lum la-ra-la-ra
 
Les noies d'aquell carrer
En finestra n'han eixides;
La que més volia jo
Encara n'és adormida
Lai!
Lum la-rai-lum la-rai-rum
Lai!
Lum la-rai-lum la-ra-la-ra
 
[Instrumental]
 
Quan jo n'era petitet
M'alegrava i divertia
I ensonava el flobiol,
Flobiol i tamborinet
Lai!
Lum la-rai-lum la-rai-rum
Lai!
Lum la-rai-lum la-ra-la-ra...

When I Was

When I was a little boy
I was cheerful and had fun
And I'd play the flageolet,
Flageolet and tambourine
Hey!
Loom la-ra-loom la-ra-room
Hey!
Loom la-ra-loom la-ra-la-ra
 
The flageolet was made of gold,
The tambourine was made of fine silver.
I went singing, making noise
To my girlfriend's door
Hey!
Loom la-ra-loom la-ra-room
Hey!
Loom la-ra-loom la-ra-la-ra
 
[Instrumental]
 
I went singing, making noise
To my girlfriend's door;
The girls in that street
Have leaned out of their windows
Hey!
Loom la-ra-loom la-ra-room
Hey!
Loom la-ra-loom la-ra-la-ra
 
The girls in that street
Have leaned out of their windows;
The one I wanted to see the most
Is still asleep
Hey!
Loom la-ra-loom la-ra-room
Hey!
Loom la-ra-loom la-ra-la-ra
 
[Instrumental]
 
When I was a little boy
I was cheerful and had fun
And I'd play the flageolet,
Flageolet and tambourine
Hey!
Loom la-ra-loom la-ra-room
Hey!
Loom la-ra-loom la-ra-la-ra...
 
Thanks!
