Tanel Padar & The Sun - Welcome To Estonia (English translation)

English translation

Welcome to Estonia

Versions: #1#2
Yesterday I saw the land of Estonia again, spooky bogs and rich forests,
Folk costumes, Urgic heritage, song festivals, the Baltic sea
Tomorrow is here, Estonia, the decorations are made, the doors may be opened
Well, come on everyone - I want to see if my land is beautiful, which grows the cedar trees
 
Welcome to Estonia, crisscrossed rivers and dairy mountains
Welcome to Estonia, you'll see the dawn flag waving once again
Welcome to Estonia, when you're greeted, raise your hands... welcome
 
In Narva* they believe that the dead rivers and forest trees are our brethren
Bread that's black and white is (wine?)
I'm not a tourist, I live here
Whether there's a mark or a clean slate, big economy or small pond
 
Welcome to Estonia, crisscrossed rivers and dairy mountains
Welcome to Estonia, you'll see the dawn flag waving once again
Welcome to Estonia, and in turn, (see) strange troops
Welcome to Estonia, when you're greeted, raise your hands... welcome
 
I live in Estonia
I live in Estonia
 
Tibi-taba-daa and tipa-tapa-tapa... I get a hold of a microphone, then a glass of beer
In Põltsamaa-Võru*, in Tartu* or Tapa*, all the people heard me when I started to speak
I began to say your Estonia is alive, from the warm whirlpools to noisy Hollywood
It's not just the hills, the small rivers, or the forests where there are blueberries and amphibians
I look out the window at the (pipes?), to where satan's communism has gone [and died]
Every day I sustain rose-colored glasses, as I give 500 crowns** to the beggars
 
Yo, come with us
Yo, come with us
 
Welcome to Estonia, crisscrossed rivers and dairy mountains
Welcome to Estonia, you'll see the dawn flag waving once again
Welcome to Estonia, and in turn, (see) strange troops
Welcome to Estonia, when you're greeted, raise your hands

*All starred names are Estonian cities/counties. **Estonian currency (krooni); about $50 US. This song was difficult for me to translate, as I am not a fluent speaker, so I hope there aren't too many errors. Additional translations are welcome.
