From the FCS Vault of Silly Songs – ‘ Da Vorne Steht Ne Ampel’ Der Plan


Skip thought you’d like this one. It’s about traffic lights

Is that you Ingrid?….
Is that Slovenian they’re singing?

Enjoy



English lyrics below

There is a traffic light up ahead,
come quickly, it lights up red
All people are waiting, but we, but we, but we
But we have long since left

There is a traffic light up front,
stop, it is green,
All people are walking, and I
And I can see your eyes
I don’t want to go to red
I don’t want to go to green

There is a lamp up front
Come quickly, it shines red
All people are waiting, but we are
But we are long gone

Why not go to red
Why not to go to green?
The traffic light is up ahead.
Come on, it’s red.
All the people are waiting
Without me

    1. Had to look this up. Well done! They appear in the list of essential words to learn for survival in Slovenia. Level 1 . …. think there are about 10 levels to go…so Ne razumem = I don’t understand, Ni je to = It’s not..Slovensko….I reckon it could be a long-forgotten village in the mountains there which time has forgot. Like the land of Nod where instead of Lavender Ladies they have nice friendly robots at the crossings and people dressed as flutterbys. All very idyllic. The language I picked up as an ancient forgotten dialect of your country…..Skip’s rolling his eyes……
