I wonder if anyone has the english translation of the lyrics of Ederlezi Avela, the famous song from "The Time of the Gypsies".
Here are the lyrics in Romani (I think)

Alo mange liloro - Edelezi Avela

Pravdiloda daye bre
jek kalo sabata. x2
Alo mange liloro,
me ki vojska te dzav. x2

Uke kotar daye bre
jekh kalo pampuri. x2
Amaneti daye,
te mishta menaya.

Ederlezi avela,
me khere na sijom. x2
ala loko nashti ljam
me dayatar me dade. x2

Ma rov daye gudlije,
pale ka avav mange. x2
Ederlezi ka avel,
meda kere ka avav. x2

Thank you in advance


English ederlezi avela Jan 9, 2008

My own mother (daye)
Black (kalo) day has come.
Now it's time for me (mange)
to go to the army (vojska).

Mother, black (kalo) man came
And took away your son.
I leave my son to you
Take care for him strongly.

And on St. George's Day (Ederlezi)
I will not be at home
