Generic Confusion

When you leave, my blog just fades to grey
Nu ma nu ma iei, nu ma nu ma nu ma iei


News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Ma Ya Hi - English Lyrics

I'm surprised how high this weblog ranks in Google searches for people interested in Dragostea Din Tei or the Ma Ya Hi song. To further promote this, here's a copy of the English lyrics, from the version credited to Dan Balan featuring Lucas Prata.

In the Today Show version linked below, the lines in parentheses are replaced by the "numa numa" phrase (nu ma, nu ma iei, nu ma, nu ma iei, nu ma, nu ma, nu ma iei).

Ma-Ya-Hi
Ma-Ya-Hu
Ma-Ya-Ho
Ma-Ya-Ha Ha
Ma-Ya-Hi
Ma-Ya-Hu
Ma-Ya-Ho
Ma-Ya-Ha Ha

Hello, Salud, it’s me your Duke
And I made something that’s real
To show you how I feel

Hello, Hello, it’s me Picasso
I will paint my words of love
With your name on every wall

When you leave my colors fade to gray
(I need a love to stay or All my colors fade away)
Every word of love I used to say
Now I paint it everyday

Ma-Ya-Hi
Ma-Ya-Hu
Ma-Ya-Ho
Ma-Ya-Ha Ha
Ma-Ya-Hi
Ma-Ya-Hu
Ma-Ya-Ho
Ma-Ya-Ha Ha

I sold my strings, my songs, and dreams
And I bought some paints to match the colors of my love

Hello, Hello, it’s me, Picasso
I will spray my words of my love
With your name on every wall

When you leave my colors fade to gray
(Little lover stay or All my colors fade away)
Every word of love I used to say
Now I paint it everyday

Ma-Ya-Hi
Ma-Ya-Hu
Ma-Ya-Ho
Ma-Ya-Ha Ha
Ma-Ya-Hi
Ma-Ya-Hu
Ma-Ya-Ho
Ma-Ya-Ha Ha
Ma-Ya-Hi
Ma-Ya-Hu
Ma-Ya-Ho
Ma-Ya-Ha Ha
Ma-Ya-Hi
Ma-Ya-Hu
Ma-Ya-Ho
Ma-Ya-Ha Ha

When you leave my colors fade to gray
(Little lover stay All my colors fade away)
Every word of love I used to say
Now I paint it everyday

Thanks for posting the lyrics to the English song. I just discovered the song a week ago, and I have just been loving it!

So far, you're the only one with lyrics to the English one. Nice job. The rest of the blog is cool too. I'm going to subscribe to it via the RSS feed.

To be honest, I found the lyrics after a long search on the Internet, so they're out there. The English version is pretty new, so I'm not surprised it's hard to find.

I'm interested in music, so discovered the song by seeing it mentioned in Billboard magazine, and heard it long before it surprisingly broke in America.

Hey! Nice! I couldn't find the English lyrics anywhere...If anyone didn't know the original song is Romanian! I saw a debate going on on some random site and they were arguing which language it was in they metioned many languages but not Romanian! Idiotz!

hello thanx for posting the english lyrics it is very nice of you i found this song like 2 or 3 days ago and loved it i had known and loved the romanian version ever since a friend showed it to me and i had heard a long time ago about an english version but had forgotten about until recently so i was surprised to hear from you that it was new. Oh! one more question how is this song a "take on gay marriage" just wondering thanx again. i also like all the other songs by them that i've heard you should check it out even though it's in romanian.

Hello, Salute, it’s me your Duke
And I made something that’s real

Hello, Hello, it’s me Picasso

I sold my strings, my songs, and dreams
And I bought some paints to match the colors of my love

Hello, Hello, it’s me again, Picasso
I will spray my words of my love
With your name on every wall

When you leave my colors fade to gray

When you leave my colors fade to gray
Hey little lover stay All my colors fade away
Every word of love I used to say
Now I paint it everyday
