Când s-o-mpărţit norocu’ (English)

When They Gave Out Luck

Oh, my sorrow, sometimes I could just
Sometimes I could just
Strike a stone with my knife,
Just strike a stone with my knife, my sorrow.

Then the stone would spark a fire, my sorrow,
Then the stone would spark a fire,
If my life is without luck,
If my life is without luck, my sorrow.

When they gave out luck, my sorrow,
When they gave out luck,
I was gone to work,
I was gone to work, my sorrow.

And they gave all a cartful, my sorrow,
And they gave all a cartful,
But for me only a glassful
But for me only a glassful, my sorrow.

And even that one wasn’t full, my sorrow,
Even that one wasn’t full,
Half of it was only venom,
Half of it was only venom, my sorrow.

And even that one wasn’t to the brim, my sorrow,
Even that one wasn’t to the brim,
Half of it was only trouble,
Half of it was only trouble, my sorrow.

High and cloudless are the skies, my sorrow,
High and cloudless are the skies,
On my side the clouds are gathering,
On my side the clouds are gathering, my sorrow.

High and starry are the skies, my sorrow,
High and starry are the skies,
On my side the clouds are pouring,
On my side the clouds are pouring, my sorrow.

And so I get a thought, my sorrow,
And so I get a thought,
To go singing through the woods,
To go singing through the woods, my sorrow.
