Doru Stanculescu – Hai, hai, haidi, hai (Pe sub flori ma leganai)


 N-a sti nimeni ca m-am dus,
Numa m-or vedea ca nu-s,

Sus e cerul, larga-i lumea,
Bine c-a-nfrunzit padurea.

Hai, hai, hai, haidi, hai, dihai,
Pe sub flori ma leganai 
Hai, hai, hai, haidi, hai, dihai,
Pe sub flori ma leganai. 

Sus e cerul, larga-i lumea,
N-a sti nimeni ca m-am dus,

Bine c-a-nfrunzit padurea
Numai or vedea ca nu-s

Hai, hai, hai, haidi, hai, dihai,
Pe sub flori ma leganai 
Hai, hai, hai, haidi, hai, dihai,
Pe sub flori ma leganai.

Andrii Popa – Phoenix ( Mircea Baniciu ). – versuri de Vasile Alecsandri

Cine trece-n valea seacă
Cu hangerul fără teacă
Şi cu pieptul dezvelit
Andrii Popa cel vestit,
Andrii Popa cel vestit.

R. E haiduc şi e vestit,
Andrii Popa ce voinic.2X

Şapte ani cu voinicie
Şi-a batut joc de domnie,
Şi tot prada ne’ncetat
Andrii Popa hoţ bărbat,
Andrii Popa hoţ bărbat.

R. E haiduc şi e vestit,
Andrii Popa ce voinic.2X

Zi şi noapte tot călare
Trage bir din drumu’ mare,
Şi din ţara peste tot
Fug neferii cat ce pot,
Fug neferii cu ce pot.

Caci el are-o pusca plina
Cu trei glonti la radacina
Si-are-un murg de patru ani,
Care musca din dusmani,
Care musca din dusmani.

R. E haiduc şi e vestit,
Andrii Popa ce voinic.2X

Şi are fraţi de cruce şapte,
Care-au supt sange cu lapte,
Şi nu-i pasă de nimic
Andrii Popa cel voinic,
Andrii Popa cel voinic.

R. E haiduc şi e vestit,
Andrii Popa ce voinïc.2X

Phoenix – Strunga (on a poem by Vasile Alexandri)



n padurea de la strunga, hei…
Sunt de cei cu pusca lunga, hei…
Care dau chioras la punga, hei…

Sunt de cei ce-mpusca-n luna,
Care noaptea-n frunze suna,
Feciori de lele nebuna…
Feciori de lele nebuna…

Fa-te-n laturi mai crestine, mai…
Daca vrei sa treci cu bine, mai…
Sa ramai cu viata-n tine, ma…

Opt voinici cu spete late
Si cu maneci suflecate,
Stau cu pustile-ncarcate…
Stau cu pustile-ncarcate…

Oleleu, ciocoi, bogate, hei…
Ici de-i trece din pacate, hei…
Sa-ti arunc doi glonti in spate, hei…

Ca mi-e pusca hultuita
Si mi-e ghioaga tintuita
Si mi-e inima-ncoltita…
Si mi-e inima-ncoltita…

Ca mi-e pusca hultuita
Si mi-e ghioaga tintuita
Si mi-e inima-ncoltita…
Si mi-e inima-ncoltita…

In padurea de la strunga, hei…
Ce slujeste pusca lunga, hei…
Fara lupta, fara punga, hei…
Hei… hei… hei… hei…

Today’s Birthday: HARRIET MARTINEAU (1802)


Harriet Martineau (1802)

A chronically ill woman who lost her hearing in childhood, Martineau nevertheless went on to become a prolific and enormously popular English author. The sister of a minister, she first published articles on religious subjects, but it was her series of books on economics written for the layman that brought her renown. After a visit to the US in 1834, she became an abolition advocate and wrote several critical works on American culture. What Charles Dickens character may have been based on her? More… Discuss
