Vine, vine primăvara

(a romanian folk song, can listen to it here)


Vine, vine primăvara,

Se așterne-n toată țara,

Floricele pe câmpii –

Hai să le-adunăm, copii! 

Crește, crește iarba verde,

Ciocârlia-n nori se pierde,

Haideți s-ascultăm copii

Al ei cântec din câmpii! 

Cucu, cucu strigă tare,

Pitpalacul-n luncă sare,

Mieii zburdă pe câmpii,

Haideți să-i vedem, copii!

It comes, it comes – the spring!

Spreading out over all the land

Small flowers on the plains

Let’s go gather them, children!

Growing, rising is the green grass

The lark is flying through the clouds

Come kids, let us listen

To her song over the plains!


, cuckoo shouts loudly,

Quail in the meadows jump,

The lambs fly over plains,

Let’s see them, children!
