Lume, lume, soră lume Lume, lume, soră lume Când să mă satur de tine Când să mă satur de tine Lume, soră lume Când s-o lăsa sec de pâine Şi păhăruţul de mine Lume, soră lume Lume, lume, soră lume Lume, lume, soră lume Când o suna scândura Când o suna scândura Lume, soră lume Când m-or băga in mormânt Şi n-oi mai fi pe pământ Lume, soră lume C-aşa-i lumea trecătoare Unul naşte altul moare Lume, soră lume Ăl de naşte necăjeşte Ăl de moare putrezeşte Lume, soră lume Who killed Cock Robin? Who killed Cock Robin? I, said the sparrow with my little bow and arrow, it was I, O it was I Who caught his blood - o? Who caught his blood - o? I, said the fish with my little silver dish, it was I, O it was I Who sewed his shroud - o? Who sewed his shroud - o? I, said the eagle with my little thread and needle, it was I, O it was I
Safi's Syrto 04:06
Oh, my sister, have you heard Those voices claim to know the word The truth the gospel told you to believe in Like suntanned boys of summertime They fool your weary mind //Isn’t it a shame, isn’t it a shame Isn’t it a shame, a deep dark shame // Oh, my mother, dig in deep Don’t wake those doggies as they sleep Don’t listen to their tales and how they lie, lie, lie And day will come and day will go Maybe that’s just all we know. Oh, my brother, be on guard For demons creeping in the yard A jingle masquerading as a symphony But once you put that needle down The record played without a sound It was too late to turn back round.

Lady Gay 03:45
There was a lady and a lady gay, Of children she had three, She sent them away to the North Counteree For to learn their grammaree They'd not been there very long, Scarcely six months and a day, ‘Til death, cold death, came hasting along And stole those babes away. It was about old Christmas time Nights being cold, nights being clear. She looked and saw her three little babes Running home to her. She set a table long and wide, On it she put bread and wine, "Come eat, come drink, my three little babes, Come eat, come drink of mine." "We want none of your bread, mother, Neither do we want your wine, For yonder stands our Savior dear, And to Him we must resign." "Green grass grows over our heads, mother, Cold clay is under our feet, And every tear you shed for us, It wets our winding-sheet." Give you my love soft golden kisses Sunshine on eyelids and candlelit wishes
