Songtext:

Refrein:
Tumbala, tumbala, tumbalalaika,
Tumbala, tumbala, tumbalalaika,
Tumbalalaika, Shpiel bolaika
Tumbalalalaika, let us be gay

Stayed a lad awake the night thru
Thinking, thinking, what would we do?
Whom shall he marry, no longer tarry?
Whom shall he marry, no longer tarry?

Waiden, maiden, tell if you know
What though it have no rain can grow
Wht can burn for years and years
What can yearn and cry without tears

Foolish lad, you surely should know
A stone though it have no rain can grow
Love can burn for years and years
A heart can yearn and cry without tears.

Refrein:
Tumbala, tumbala, tumbalalaika,
Tumbala, tumbala, tumbalalaika,
Tumbalalaika, Shpiel bolaika
Tumbalalaika, frey loch zol zein.

A young man wonders how he will find
A girl who is gentle, loving and kind.
Many the maidens, bright are their eyes,
How shall he know the one who is wise?

Maiden, maiden can you explain
What can grow and never need rain?
Which is the fire that burns through th eyears,
Which is the sorrow deeper than tears

Listen, listen while I reply
A stone can grow and always be dry.
Love that is true will burn through the years
When a heart cries, it cries whitout tears.
