Track Name: Pride
Kamen goli, sunce u mom oku,
Jedan cjelov da ti kaze sve
Moja kosa pokrila ti rame
Zbogom rekoh, planina te sakri

(Barren rocks, sun in my eye,
One kiss to tell it all
My hair, covering your shoulder
Goodbye, I said, and the mountain concealed you)

Kise ove s mora dal su dosle
I dal tvoju suzu mi donose,
A vjetar sto mi mrsi kose
Miso s tvojih usana je tako

(These rains, do they come from the sea
And do they bring me your tears
And this wind that tangles my hair,
Has it touched a thought from your lips)

I sad tebe cekam moja diko da se vratis i ispunis dan
A tvoji mi zagrljaji topli griju dusu na vjetru tom
I sad tebe cekam moja diko da se vratis i uljepsas san
I sjecam se svih tih divonih noci, zvjezda, neba i mirisa tvog.

(And now I’m waiting for you, my pride to come back, fulfill the days
While your arms around me warm my soul on the cold wind
And now I’m waiting for you, my pride, to come back, embellish dreams
Remembering all those beautiful nights, stars, skies, and your smell)

Ptice lete, plavo nebo moje
Necu majko, nikog drugog necu
Kazes, dijete ostavit ces srecu
Al planine ne mijenjaju boje


Birds fly, my blue sky
No, dear mother, I’ll accept no one else
You say to me, my child, you’re leaving your happiness,
But, mum, you know that mountains don’t change their colours

Mirise rosa, livada se sjaji
Moja ruka prema necem krece
Ka leptiru sto na cvjetak sljece,
Il ka moru sto mi nesto taji

(I can smell the dew, the meadow shines,
My arm moves towards something,
Towards a butterfly that is landing on a flower
Or towards the sea, that keeps a secret from me )

I sad boga molim moja diko da ne ostanem sama tu
Al mene i sve te moje pjesme, utisale mirne planine
I sad tebe zove njena diko da ne ostane sama tu zauvjek
Al tebe nit svih tih divnih noci vise nema u oku svom

(And now I’m praying the God, my pride, not to stay all alone
But both I and all of my songs, got silenced by those still mountains,
And now she is calling for you, her pride, not to stay here all alone forever,
But you and all of those beautiful nights reside in her eye no longer.)
Track Name: Cairo
Trusted in man, one time too many
She’s unconvinced, by the human race
Turned her back on marriage, for twenty-years
But this time, there’ll be no mistake

Sjedila sam ja uz more noge mocila
Tada vidjeh jednu zenu I njenoga psa
Nisam mogla vjerovati svojim ocima
Dal li ruka il sreca na sapi pociva

(I was sitting next to the sea, paddling my feet
Then I saw a woman with her dog
I couldn’t believe my eyes,
Was it a hand or happiness on the dogs paw)

Oh boze moj, oh boze moj….
(Oh dear God…..)

She found her on the train to Cairo
The queen of a distant town
She’s the comfort when you feeling low
The only one to never let you down

Sjedila sam ja uz more noge mocila
Zapitah se sto je ljubav, dal je imam ja
Ali more osta tiho pa nastavih da
Brckam noge I gledam put plavetnila

(I was sitting next to the sea, paddling my feet
I have asked myself, what love is
But the sea remained silent
So I just continued to paddle my feet and to stare into the blue)

Oh, ljubavi, oh ljubavi, o more, more, oh ljubavi…
(Oh love, oh love, oh the sea, the sea, oh love)
Track Name: Sleep Around
Sleep around, sleep around
Out the door and spread your love all over town
Do it every night, a different girl or guy
You never know, if you don’t try you’ll find your mite

Your self imposed celibacy
My evolutionary trajectory
It’s lonely down here, we’re going nowhere
Make love not war if you want me out of your hair
Track Name: Trenutna
Oh to divno proslo ljeto
Kad smo bili skupa sretni
Kad smo jedno drugom bili
Sve sto sad vise nismo

(Oh, that beautiful, past summer
When we were happy together
When we were to each other
All that we no longer are)

Dal se I ti katkad sjetis,
Divnih toplih ljetnih dana
Toplih divnih ljetnjih noci
Dal ce opet ikad doci

(Do you ever remember,
Wonderful, warm, summer days
Warm, wonderful summer nights
Will they ever come back?)

Ajme sukarije,
Cajorije sukarije
Ame sukarije
Moje ljeto x 4

(Oh you girl
Beautiful girl
Oh you girl
My summer)

Sada gledam oci tvoje,
Oci tvoje plave boje
Ruka svira, zice dira
Dal su ikad bile moje

(I’m looking at your eyes,
Your eyes, blue colour
Hand is playing, touching the keys
Have they ever been mine?)

Gledam sunce pa se sjetim
Kada miris grana bujnih
Zelenilo, miso leti
Kamo nesta ja se pitam

(I’m looking at the sun, then I remember,
When the scent of lush branches,
Greenness, the thought flies up
Where have you vanished, I’m asking myself?)

Ajme sukarije,
Cajorije sukarije
Ame sukarije
Moje ljeto

(Oh you girl
Beautiful girl
Oh you girl
My summer)


Ajme sukarije,
Gdje ti nesta sukarije
Ame sukarije
Moje ljeto

(Oh you girl
Where have you vanished girl
Oh you girl
My summer)


Dali znas gdje je to nestalo…
(Do you know, where it has disappeared?)

Sada pjevam zadnji stih ja,
Ovo je moj zadnji stih
A onda ce clarinet da odsvira nam kratki solo

(I’m singing my last verse,
This is the last one,
And then, the clarinet is going to play us a short solo)

Ajme sukarije,
Cajorije sukarije
Ame sukarije
Moje ljeto

(Oh you girl
Beautiful girl
Oh you girl
My summer)


Ajme sukarije,
Gdje ti nesta sukarije
Ame sukarije
Moje ljeto

Oh you girl
Where have you vanished girl
Oh you girl
My summer


Ajme sukarije,
Vrati mi se sukarije
Ame sukarije
Moje ljeto

(Oh you girl
Come back to me girl
Oh you girl
My summer)
