Kënga e gjyshes

Tregon gjyshja nga herë

Na ishte se na ishte

Na ish një herë një djalë

Si veten shokët kishte.

Dhe unë duke dëgjuar

Shikoj me sytë e mi,

Një trim duke luftuar

Për fatet e lirise.

Refreni:

I ëmbël zëri gjyshes

Kur ngjarjen më tregon

E lehtë dorë e saja

Mbi krye më ledhaton.

(4x)

Tregon gjyshja nga herë

Na ishte se na ishte

Na ish një herë një djalë

Si veten shokët kishte.

Dhe unë duke dëgjuar

Shikoj me sytë e mi,

Një trim duke luftuar

Për fatet e lirise.

Grandma’s song

Grandma tells us all the time

There was once,

once, a boy

With friends just like himself.

And I listening,

Picture through my eyes,

A brave man fighting

For the fate of freedom.

(Chorus)

So sweet the voice of grandma,

When the story she tells

So gentle her hand

Caressing my head.

(Repeat 4 Times)

Grandma tells us all the time

There was once,

Before us, a boy

With just like himself.

And me listening,

Picture through my eyes,

A brave man fighting

For the fate of freedom.

(Chorus)

Globi (Dhurate per Ditelindje)

Në përvjetor të ditëlindjes tënde,

Ke plot dhurata mbi tavolinë,

Dhe në mes tyre një glob të vogël,

Shokët e klasës ta kane sjellë,

Dhe në mes tyre një glob të vogël,

Shokët ta kanë sjellë,

Leht’ e leht’ përqark,

Globi rrotullohet,

Fluturojnë mbi të,

Gjithë kontinentet,

Ja atdheu ynë,

Ja përmes kaltërsisë,

Shqipëria ime,

Ja ku është.

Fushës qiellore, nëpër kristale

Fluturon globi e mban në shpinë

Rrugë dhe pemë, zogj e limane

Zjarre qytetesh që natën ndrijnë

Shpresa e njerëz, erë e tufane

Globi i mban mbi shpinë

Rreth e rreth përqark,

Globi rrotullohet,

Fluturojnë mbi të,

Gjithë kontinentet,

Ja atdheu ynë,

Ja përmes kaltërsisë,

Shqipëria ime,

Ja ku është.

The Globe (Birthday gift)

On your birthday anniversary,

The table is full with gifts for you,

And among them a small globe

That your classmates brought for you,

And among them a small globe

That your classmates brought for you,

Slightly, slightly around,

The globe revolves,

Flying upon it,

All the continents,

There lies our homeland,

There throughout the blue,

My Albania,

There it is.

Heavenly field throughout crystals

The globe flies and carries upon

Roads and trees, birds and coves

Fires of cities that brighten the night

Hopes and people, wind and windstorms

The globe carries upon itself

Slightly, slightly around,

The globe revolves,

Flying upon it,

All the continents,

There lies our homeland,

There throughout the blue,

My Albania,

There it is.
