Only Strong

Versions: #1#2
Only one wish
Believe me, only one
For my whole life --
 
Coby, did you write this track?
 
Refrain:
(Only!) Euros and Francs
only spend them on drinks and hoes
(Only!) Let me throw my money
'cause clubs only play songs that I wrote
(Only!) And automatic BMWs
only fancy cars in my ghetto
(Only!) Lift our spirits only higher
as things go how they'll go
 
Only strong, only fast as I spend my hard-earned cash
Only strong, only nothing could ever hold us back
Only strong, only fast as I spend my hard-earned cash
Only strong, only nothing could ever hold us back
 
This is the Balkans my brother, you know how it goes
Mafia, stacks, singers, and turbo folk
In the Balkans everyone knows who’s who
So come sit with us, pull up a stool
 
We’re beasts unchained, dreaming of golden chains
Don’t ask that girl why criminals are her thing
White Nikes, yugo-style necklaces and rings
Strongest are the mothers who bear Balkan kings
 
Let us live it up, only let us lift it up
Lift our spirits higher even when the times are rough
Money is for throwing up, only let us throw it up
We know we’ll be alright even when it gets tough
 
Refrain
 
And you there, day after day - dancing, drinking your troubles away
It'll get to your head one night - these things you do every night
 
We’re beasts unchained, dreaming of golden chains
Don’t ask that girl why criminals are her thing
White Nikes, yugo-style necklaces and rings
Strongest are the mothers who bear Balkan kings
 
Let us live it up, only let us lift it up
Lift our spirits higher even when the times are rough
Money is for throwing up, only let us throw it up
We know we’ll be alright even when it gets tough
 
Refrain

rather than literally translating every line, i took some liberties in order to preserve the motifs of the song, and to convey the way it rhymes and flows.
