Jelena Tomasevic – Oro

Serbia 2008 Eurovision Song

Tekst na srpskom

Oro

Ko li miluje, milo moje,
Ko li usne te, snene budi,
Ne zaboravi ime moje,
kada krene da, da te ljubi

Klasje moje ne spavaj
Njega ljubi, mene uspavaj

Ne lomi mi led, vodu nema
Ne soli mi ranu, suza nema,

Ko li zaigra oro moje,
Neka ne igra za nas dvoje

Klasje moje, mene uspavaj.
Nuna nej, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna nej,

Na Vidovdan, probudi me, da ga opet pogledam.
Na Vidovdan, probudi me, jos jednom da ga opet pogledam

English Translation

Hora

Who is caressing, my dear one
Who is waking up those sleepy lips
Don’t forget my name
when she starts, starts to kiss you,

My wheat, do not sleep,
kiss him, put me to sleep

Do not break my ice, it lacks water
Do not put salt on my wound, there are no tears

Who is dancing my hora
They should not dance for the two of us

My wheat, put me to sleep
Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney,

Wake me up on St.Vitus’ day, so that I can look at him again
Wake me up on St.Vitus’ day, so that I can see him one more time

Jelena Tomašević – Ela Agapi

Oro ~ Greek Version

Greek Lyrics

Έλα αγάπη

Πότε ουρανέ, πες μου πότε θα ‘ρθει να με βρεί, η αγάπη
Μεσ’ απ’την αυγή το σκοτάδι, πότε θα χαθεί μ’ ένα χάδι
Α… έλα πιό κοντά ουρανέ μου, άνοιξα φτερά

Χάθηκα εδώ, μες το ψέμα
Δως μου εσύ ζωή, μ’ενα βλέμμα
Μέσα στο χορό της καρδιάς σου
Μέσα στα κρυφά, τα όνειρά σου
Α… έλα πιό κοντά

Νουνανει, νουνα νουνα νουνα νουνα νουνανει
Νουνανει, νουνα νουνα νουνα νουνα νουνανει
Να ρθεί ξανά, αχ ουρανέ, η αγάπη μου κοντά

Νουνανει, νουνα νουνα νουνα νουνα νουνανει
Νουνανει, νουνα νουνα νουνα νουνα νουνανει
Να ρθει ξανά, αχ ουρανέ, η αγάπη μου κοντά

Να ρθει κοντά, αχ ουρανέ… έλα αγάπη μου κοντά
Έλα αγάπη

English Translation

Come Love

When heaven, tell me when
love will come and find me
Through the dawn the darkness
when it’s going to disappear with a caress
Oh come closer
My heaven, I spread my wings

I got lost here in the lie
Give me life with a look
In the dance of your heart
In your secret dreams
Oh, come closer

Nunaney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nunaney
Nunaney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nunaney
I wish it comes again, ah heaven, my love closer

Nunaney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nunaney
Nunaney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nunaney
Nunaney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nunaney
I wish it comes again, ah heaven, my love closer

Jelena Tomašević – Minha dor

Oro ~ Portuguese Version

Portuguese Lyrics

Minha dor

Nada mais será como dantes
A saudade está no meu fado
Nunca vou saber, meu querido
Para onde foi o meu riso?
Nada é tão forte assim
Tua voz está sempre ao pé de mim

Danço á beira-mar, solto um beijo
Grito o teu nome, não te vejo
Sinto o teu amor, o teu cheiro
Será que esta dor, não termina?
Deixai que eu parta já

Nuna nei, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna nei
Nuna nei, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna nei
Profunda dor que me deixou só e sem o meu amor

Nuna nei, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna nei
Nuna nei, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna nei
Profunda dor que me deixou só e sem o meu amor
Profunda dor que o levou, desta vida sem fulgor

English Translation

My Pain

It won’t be like it was before
Saudade is in my fado
I won’t get known, my sweetheart
Where did my smile go?
Nothing is stronger than this
I feel your voice surrounding me

I dance at the seashore, I pretend I’m kissing you
I cry out your name, I can’t see you
I feel your love, your smell
When will this pain die?
Let me go right now

Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
This deep pain left me alone and without love

Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
This deep pain left me alone and without love
This deep pain took him away from this life without glow

Jelena Tomašević – Adiós amor

Oro ~ Spanish Version

Spanish Lyrics

Adiós amor

NQuédate aquí a mi lado
Una noche más en mis brazos
Dime sin hablar yo te siento
En mi corazón tan desierto
Hasta que ilumine el sol
Dame sueño para mi dolor

Quédate aquí en mis versos
Queda como brillo
En mis pensamientos
Esta oración en mis labios
Besa tu piel, mi cariño
Hasta que ilumine el sol

Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney

Tres lágrimas, mis últimas
Te mando que te cuiden bien

Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney

Mis últimas tres lágrimas
Te mando que te cuiden bien

Adiós amor, abrázame
En otra vida espérame

English Translation

My Pain

Stay here by my side
One more night in my arms
Tell me, without talking, I feel you
In my heart, so empty
Until the sun shines
Give me a dream for my pain

Stay here, in my verses
Stay like shine
In my thoughts
This prayer on my lips
Kisses your skin, my darling
Until the sun shines

Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney

Three tears, my last
I send them to you to take care of you

Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney
Nuna ney, nuna nuna nuna nuna nuna ney

My last three tears
I send them to you to take care of you

Goodbye my love, hug me
Wait for me in another life

  1. Slavs are, or at least are supposed to be red-headed or blond, and to have a fair complexion. He’s neither of these. So I checked his background. Intelligence Ops 😀

  2. Darko-really? I had never heard of that before, but ok, I usually trust wikipedia too so suppose it’s all right 😛

  3. Oh, yes, and one more thing.

    I knew that the guy who won, Dima Bilan, isn’t of Slavic origin. Obvious, no?! 🙂

    He’s from one of those small republics of the Russian Federation where the majority of citizens are of Turkic origin. So says wikipedia, and I trust wikipedia (usually). 😀

  4. I’m very sorry that Jelena didn’t win. The song was beautiful, the stage performance was nice, too. The problem might have been that many people recognized a touch of ‘Lane moje’ in the song and decided not to vote for it, in spite of it being really really nice (as if the rest of the songs are not copies of some other songs, lol)

    I don’t mean to underestimate the success of the Russian team, but their song doesn’t seem like anything special to me. I wasn’t impressed by the singer’s vocal performance, either. What probably aroused interest of the audience is the performance of Yevgeny Plyushchenko on like two square meters of ice on the stage. Then again, the Eurovision Song Contest is the competition of songs, vocal and stage performance, and singers’ outfits (how awful they may be).

    The organizer probably didn’t want to add all these competing categories to the official title of the competition and it still remains the ‘Eurovision SONG Contest’.

  5. jao nina… 🙄

    Well we exchanged our 12 points though I must say I did NOT and once again, did NOT contribute to that!
    Sorry but that’s just simple truth.

  6. in what way can this be about Kosovo? lol….I don’t think it is….anyway the song was nice as before 😛

  7. Hi ya all I am from Bosnia I think that bosnia will win because of its originality but Jelena really sings great, she is the best female voice in the Europe, But Laka is something else he is funny, and it makes me proud to hear him. Serbia congratulations anyway.P.S. I think this song is about Kosovo and it sholuld be ……….great song and amazin Jelena

  8. ORO is a vey nice song! Jelena has a wonderful voice a I hope that she will win! I’m from Serbia, and sorry because of some little mistakes! ;)) I think that song isn’t borring! I am listening it at the moment and…I don’t know…I don’t know how to say it…IT’S MAGICAL!! Jelena is the best!!! SERBIA RULES!!!!! :))

  9. Jelena is great..no, she’s the best!! 🙂
    I also like greece and ukraine..but I don’t get how macedonia and slovenia didn’t make it to the final..
    spanish song is nice..but nina by ferry frias is a lot lot better….
    jub svima

  10. I’m from Serbia and live in England..I love this song. I hope Serbia wins again, it’ll just be amazing

  11. I’m not sure that you will win again but you would deserve it definately. I’m afraid the winner this year won’t be a ballad and a song in a native language again, even though most of the by far best songs are ballads in native languages this year! like Romania, Switzerland, Albania, Serbia, Israel….Switzerland did not even make it to the final….
    argh take back the native language rule now >_< songs would be better..I think the song should be something that represents your country and its culture more like this does..

  12. Ма наша песма је најбоља брее! Каква Русија, какви бакрачи…Јецо, свака част!!! 🙂

  13. harika tek keli,meyle süper bi parca her zamn böyle gzl oluyor bunların sarkıları,,,,,,,

  14. That is just because you are not so familiar with Serbian issues… I wish I wasn’t either! lol
    I don’t know what Marija Serifovic was praying for at Eurovision 2007 but she has been involved in politics… click

  15. I do not think this has any hidden political message or anything. I think esc-songs should be neutral when it comes to politics no matter what opinion the singer has. I cannot see anything that could be political in this text.
    But the last year’s winner was trying to spread a political message? I had never heard about that….

  16. Your English is fine but your friend is wrong.
    Jelena’s exact words:
    The story behind the song „Oro“ is that girl is supposed to dream about her darling on St Vitus day, because if she dreams about him on St Vitus day, she will also marry him. It is believed that if on the night before the day, you put a piece of rosemary called vidovicica under your pillow, it helps you dream of your darling and to marry him.

    I suppose it’s quite understandable though that everything around here gets associated with politics but obviously, Jelena is not trying to spread any political message (unlike 2007 winner)

  17. isnt this song a political ‘tribute’ to not accept that kosovo is independent? my friend who is macedonian think so..so i was just wondering… sorry if my eng sucks.

  18. thanks Milena 😛
    One thing – I refuse to believe the song is about Kosovo (I posted explanation in one of the comments above) and she said it herself

  19. Hi there…well,I think that Oro is the best song this year.Jelena has a magic voice n the music is very good. lyrics? excellent.the song represents the spirit n tradition of serbia…She sings about love and at the same time about kosovo…St. Vitus’ day n other…other song that I like is secret combination of kalomoira…It’s not bad-good rhythm. And of course – Believing (russia)…N “hey chiki chiki” is cute too…All of this songs re gonna bee very popular this year, but only 1 can win… 🙂

  20. I think Bosnian entry is worse than Croatian. They are both bad but.. what Laka?! jesus!
    It’s really a shame for a country that produced Hari Mata Hari, Dino Merlin etc…
    So, our neighbors are getting 0,00000000000 votes from me but they can still vote for Jelena, I don’t mind! 😀

  21. Hello everybody! I’m from Serbia too, and Oro is a great song and Jelena is a great singer. I also like Armenia and Ireland, maybe Macedonia, Bosnia is interesting and funny… Slovenia isn’t bad. But Croatia is awful and, sorry, but the Spain too, althought I love Spanish language, people, music…
    I hope wi’ll win again. Go ahead Jelena!
