“From a Roma radio station broadcasting in Budapest: This song tells the story of a man who is remorseful because he has realized that when he drinks he becomes ugly and hurtful to those around him, most of all his lover”. Singed by Rade Serbedzija.

Pilem, Pilem

Pilem, pilem, pilem
Pilem taj matilem
O devla so kerdem
Cora romja mardem

Na mar ma romeja
Na mar ma kaleja
O devla so kerdem
Cora romja mardem

Ajreden ramare
Ajreden cavale
Keto mandji jalve
Maladem romalen

I drank, I drank (translation)

I drank, I drank, I drank
I drank and got drunk
Oh God what did I do?
I hit my poor wife

Don’t beat (/punish) me people
Don’t beat me people
Oh God what did I do?
I hit my poor wife

Listen children
Forgive me people
Oh God what did I do
I hit my poor wife

God God beat/punish me

Only don’t kill me
Oh God what did I do
I hit my poor wife
