about

Gershon: “This song is about a whore. The melody is taken from a Romanian gypsy song: Ce Dor, Ce Chin. The original song is so beautiful, that one can not help but sink into thoughts. Suddenly, a text came to my mind about a bad man getting robbed by a bad womаn. I found it nice to sing about two bad people.”

lyrics

I haven’t eaten today, you’ve taken my clothes. You took all my money, at night you left, and disappeared. The shiny black hair’s glimmering, in the eyes the fire is burning. You caressed me, appearing shy. I was a drunken wolf being fooled around… For many years I wandered around the world. I was a thief and I drank vodka in taverns. And I swore with my shot of vodka that I would never fall into hands of a woman. We met yesterday in an apartment. You said: “I have never loved like this”. At night you got me drunk of vodka, you fooled around the drunken wolf. Where are you, my sneaky one, and my splendid one? I will find you, I swear. I’m completely broke. You will pay a lot for that. I’ve giving you my word of a poet, you will pay a lot for that.


Я уже с утра не евши // Ты взяла мою одежду // Ты забрала все мои деньги // Ночью ты ушла, исчезла // Черный блеск волос сияет // А в глазах огонь пылает // Ты меня ласкала робко // Ты обдурила пьяного волка // Где ты, моя коварная, прекрасная? // Я тебя найду, клянусь я, // Остался я совсем без денег, // Ты заплатишь дорого за это // Много лет скитался я по миру, // Воровал и водку пил в трактирах, // И заклинал себя за рюмкой, // Что женщине не попаду под руку. // Встретились вчера мы на квартире, // Ты сказала: «Я так не любила»... // Ты ночью меня обпоила водкой, // Ты обдурила пьяного волка. // Где ты, моя коварная, прекрасная? // Я тебя найду, клянусь я, // Честное слово поэта, // Ты заплатишь дорого за это
