    Default Smiley feat Alex Velea si Don Baxter - Cai verzi pe pereti

    Si acum sa va cant o piesa din
    La, La La, La La, La La La La La La La
    La, La La, La La, La La La La La La La
    La, La La, La La, La La La La La La La
    Viata e o structura complexa,
    Concava sau convexa Stii cand intri dar nu sti cand iesi
    Dreapta, perversa
    Ea te trateaza exact cum o tratezi
    Si nu vrei deloc sa cedezi, Ca te
    doboara, te ridici, te enervezi
    Si zambesti si continui sa speri, Visand la cai verzi pe pereti La cai verzi
    pe pereti
    Cai verzi pe pereti
    La cai verzi pe pereti
    La cai verzi pe pereti La, La La, La La, La
    La La La La La La La, La La, La La, La La La La La La La
    Sapte zile din sapte incerc sa ma feresc
    de rele
    Nu caut belele
    Mama mi-a zis de mic sa ma feresc de
    ele Fii fericit indiferent de vreme, Mai bine
    mai tarziu decat prea devreme
    Fii optimist, vei gasi paradisul promis
    L-am gasit si acum ce credeti, calaresc!
    Cai verzi pe pereti
    Cai verzi pe pereti Cai verzi pe pereti
    Cai verzi pe pereti La, La La, La La, La La
    La La La La La
    La, La La, La La, La La La La La La La
    La, La La, La La, La La La La La La La
    La, La La, La La, La La La La La La La Eeny, meeny, miny, moe,
    Caii mei nu sunt maro
    No, no sunt verzi ca dolarii
    Si visez ca-i calaresc cand imi canta
    lautarii
    Viata nu-i deloc complicata Noi o complicam in aceasta fuga
    disperata
    Dupa lovele, dupa putere,
    Dupa tot ce ne creaza o falsa placere
    Ai mei imi zic mereu “Baxter nu ceda!
    Ia-ti si tu permisul, te rugam nu mai bea! ”
    Decat sa am sub capota 300 de cai
    fitosi
    Mai bine ma las tras de 6 cai frumosi
    Cai verzi pe pereti
    Cai verzi pe pereti Cai verzi pe pereti
    Cai verzi pe pereti La, La La, La La, La La

    Si acum sa va cant o piesa din
    And now to sing a song of
    La, La La, La La, La La La La La La La
    La, La La, La La, La La La La La La La
    La, La La, La La, La La La La La La La
    Viata e o structura complexa,
    Life is a complex structure
    Concava sau convexa Stii cand intri dar nu sti cand iesi
    Concave or convex you know when you enter but don't know when you come out
    Dreapta, perversa
    Right, perverse
    Ea te trateaza exact cum o tratezi
    She treats you exactly as you treat her
    Si nu vrei deloc sa cedezi, Ca te
    And you don't wanna give you, cause she
    doboara, te ridici, te enervezi
    knocks you down, you get up, you get angry
    Si zambesti si continui sa speri, Visand la cai verzi pe pereti La cai verzi
    and you smile and continue hoping, "chasing the wild goose, chasing the wild goose" (dreaming of green horses on walls = this would be the exact exact translation but with no sense for english speakers
    pe pereti
    Cai verzi pe pereti
    Chasing the wild goose
    La cai verzi pe pereti
    Chasing the wild goose
    La cai verzi pe pereti La, La La, La La, La
    Chasing the wild goose La La La, La La, La
    La La La La La La La, La La, La La, La La La La La La La
    Sapte zile din sapte incerc sa ma feresc
    Seven days a week I'm trying to stay away
    de rele
    from bad things
    Nu caut belele
    Not looking for trouble
    Mama mi-a zis de mic sa ma feresc de
    Mom told me since I was little to stay away from
    ele Fii fericit indiferent de vreme, Mai bine
    them. Be happy no matter the weather, better
    mai tarziu decat prea devreme
    later than too early ( I think never would've rhymed better
    Fii optimist, vei gasi paradisul promis
    be optimistic, you'll find the promised land
    L-am gasit si acum ce credeti, calaresc!
    I've found it and now what do you think, I'm riding
    Cai verzi pe pereti
    "Green horses on walls" ( again the goose story, lol)
    Cai verzi pe pereti Cai verzi pe pereti
    Cai verzi pe pereti La, La La, La La, La La
    La La La La La

    Caii mei nu sunt maro
    My horses aren't brown
    No, no sunt verzi ca dolarii
    No, no they are green like dollars
    Si visez ca-i calaresc cand imi canta
    And I dream I'm riding them when the
    lautarii
    fiddlers sing to me
    Viata nu-i deloc complicata Noi o complicam in aceasta fuga
    Life is not complicated, we complicate it in this
    disperata
    desperate flight
    Dupa lovele, dupa putere,
    After money, after power
    Dupa tot ce ne creaza o falsa placere
    After everything that offers a false pleasure
    Ai mei imi zic mereu “Baxter nu ceda!
    My folks always say to me " Baxter don't give in!
    Ia-ti si tu permisul, te rugam nu mai bea! ”
    Get your license, please stop drinking!"
    Decat sa am sub capota 300 de cai fitosi
    rather than having 300 unrealistic horses under the hood
    Mai bine ma las tras de 6 cai frumosi
    I prefer being dragged by 6 beautiful horses (there was a joke running around in Romania about "6 beautiful horses" long story ask and i'll tell you,if you wanna know)

    I'm a few months late on this, but could you tell the story about the 6 beautiful horses?

    Someone else will have to fill you in on the above story - "when you see green horses on the wall" - in Romania its an idiomatic phrase about fanciful or impossible things. The nearest Western equivalent literally is "if pigs can fly".

    Its not really that incomprehensible a proverb if you stop to think about it!

    I know it's some 5 years later, but I'd rather translate it with "castles in the air" "when pigs fly" is usually used to say "never", so in Romanian one would say "la Pastele caiilor" (but that's just what I think)
