    Default Mihai Ristea - Batem Palma

    Salut!
    It's been a long time without translating songs from Romanian to English so I got a little bit rusty...
    I've translated some parts of this songs and I'd appreciate it if you could correct it


    Mihai Ristea

    Batem palma
    Done with you (I'm not sure about this translation )


    Nu ma poti refuza
    You canít refuse
    Oferta-i dragostea mea
    the offer is my love

    Stii ca ai multe posibilitati
    I know there are many opportunities
    Prea putine compatibilitati
    too few compabilities
    Dar esti o fata cu multe calitati
    but you are a girl with many qualities
    Ai multe de oferit dar
    I have lots to offer but
    Nu poti oferi la toti
    I cannot offer everything

    Sunt sincer cand iti spun ca
    Iím honest when I say that
    Mi-ai placut din prima clipa
    I liked you from the first moment
    Inima in mine tipa
    Heart in me cries out
    Oferta mea e una foarte simpla
    My offer is very simple

    Daca vrei, bate palma daca vrei
    If you want, Iím done with you, if you want
    Un sarut o-mbratisare
    a kiss, a hug
    Si apoi ce mai vrei tu
    and then whatever you want
    Nu ma poti refuza
    You canít refuse
    Oferta-i dragostea mea
    The offer is my love

    N-ai cum sa ma vrei pentru banii mei
    You donít want me for my money
    La cat am in buzunare nici n-ai ce face cu ei
    Which I have in my pockets, neither for what I do with them
    E plina lumea de milionari in lei
    Ö.
    Hai risca-te si-ncearca un milionar in ...
    Letís risk and try a million in...

    Asculta bine
    Listen well
    N-are rost sa te impart
    Thereís no point in splitting
    Arunca-ti grijile intr-un rucsac
    Throw your worries into the backpack
    Haide cu mine
    Come to me
    Sa luam lumea la pas
    Weíll take world at step
    M-am saturat sa stau cu ochii pe ceas
    Iím fed up with with standing with eyes on the watch
    Smoking is my only vice

    Bună !

    You've done a very nice job here !

    About the title:a bate palma - it's an expresion used to show the completion of a deal, it's literally the shaking of the hands after the parts agreed to do smth together.

    The words in brackets are words that I'd translate differently, so it doesn't necessary mean you were wrong

    Deal ! (or the longer version " We have a deal")

    Nu ma poti refuza
    You can’t refuse me
    Oferta-i dragostea mea

    Stiu ca ai multe posibilitati
    I know there are (/you have) many opportunities (/possibilities)

    Ai multe de oferit dar
    You have lots to offer but

    You don’t (/can't possibly ) want me for my money
    La cat am in buzunare nici n-ai ce face cu ei
    The amount I have in my pocket, you don't have what to do with it (/with the amount of money I have in my pockets you can't really buy anything)
    E plina lumea de milionari in lei
    The world is full of millionaires in lei (lei - Romania's currency)
    Hai risca-te si-ncearca un milionar in ...
    Let’s risk and try a millionaire in (no clue what's he saying)
    Asculta bine
    Listen well
    N-are rost sa te impart
    There’s no point in splitting (/sharing you)
    Arunca-ti grijile intr-un rucsac
    Throw your worries into the backpack
    Haide cu mine
    Come with me
    Sa luam lumea la pas
    We’ll take world at step (/to travel around the world)
