VAMA feat. Ralflo – Sarkozy versus Gypsy

We love to live and we live to travel
Alalala like it, alalala like it
Hop! Hop! Alalalikeit

We’re looking for the better way
But you decide we cannot stay
Hop! Hop! Alalalikeit

You take the right to dream, to work
Three hundred euros won’t buy hope
Alalala like it, alalala like it

The fingerprint is not our soul
We’re human beings first of all
Alalala like it, alalala like it
Hop! Hop!

R: Hey, hey Sarkozy why don’t you like the gypsies
Hey, hey Sarkozy why don’t you like the gypsies
Hey, hey Sarkozy why don’t you like the gypsies
The gypsies, gypsies

We ask permission to love your country
Why don’t you like it, why don’t you like it
Hop, hop,
Why don’t you like it

If all the gypsies were to steal
Tour Eiffel would disappear

Alalalikeit, alalalikeit
Hop! Hop!

The world belongs to all the people
Gypsy people is not people?
Hop! Hop!
Gypsy groove and French chanson
We all play l’accordeon
Alalala like it, alalala like it
Hop! Hop!

R: Hey, hey Sarkozy why don’t you like the gypsies
Hey, hey Sarkozy why don’t you like the gypsies
Hey, hey Sarkozy why don’t you like the gypsies
The gypsies, gypsies

Ilegal! Ilegal! Ilegal!
Ilegal! Ilegal! Ilegal!
Ilegal! Ilegal! Ilegal!

La France s’imprègne d’un sale arôme
Ca blaire le pogrom le long des aérodromes
Ils brisent, rasent les palettes des romantiques
Vident nets les caravanes de leurs sérums
Culs secs, 3 shooters puis on gerbe le rhum
Expulse par tripes aéroportées c’est des roms
Ce Roméo atterrit en Roumanie
Juliette est un homme elle l’a bannit Abolit
Les frontières Comme Ebola
Elle boula sa définition
Du vrai Rome Surhomme
Consensus de leur forum
Y’a de quoi écrire des milliers de romans
On est tous des fils de tzig, de nomades, de migrants
Sarkozy lui continue d’en faire des tonnes
Alors que tous les chemins mènent aux Roms

R: Hey, hey Sarkozy why don’t you like the gypsies
Hey, hey Sarkozy why don’t you like the gypsies
Hey, hey Sarkozy why don’t you like the gypsies
The gypsies, gypsies

  1. Foreign minister ‘discriminatory’

    ROMANIA: An anti-discrimination board ruled today that the country’s foreign minister was guilty of discriminatory remarks about the Roma population.

    Board chairman Csaba Astalosz said the minister would receive the mildest sanction, a recommendation.

    In February Teodor Baconschi said: “We have some physiological, natural problems of criminality among some of the Romanian communities, especially among the Roma.”


  2. Three go to trial for Roma killings

    HUNGARY: Three men on trial for a series of deadly attacks against Roma people planned their actions with “military caution,” prosecutors said today.

    Prosecutors at the Pest County Court say the men, charged with murder, used shotguns and fire bombs in nine late-night strikes between July 2008 and August 2009.

    Six people including a young man and his five-year-old son were killed and five others seriously wounded.

    A fourth man is on trial for lesser charges connected to the attacks.


  3. Romania road will destroy protected areas: WWF


    Saturday, 30 July 2011

    A road in south-western Romania that has recently been okayed by environmental authorities will have “devastating effects” on a protected area, environmental group WWF said Thursday.

    “Europe’s last intact forest landscape outside Russia and Finland is about to get destroyed following the granting of a permit by the Romanian National Environment Protection Agency for the building of a controversial national road through two of Romania’s flagship protected areas,” WWF wrote in a press release.

    The 19-kilometre (11-mile) Route 66A to be built through the Retezat mountains and Domogled National Park, in the Carpathian mountains, “is an obvious breach of environmental legislation,” the group stressed.

    “The building of this road is symbolic of the total disregard for protected areas in Romania,” said Csibi Magor, manager of the WWF Danube-Carpathian Programme in Romania.

    WWF cited the conclusions of a study carried out by independent experts from the Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj, showing that 2,552 hectares (6,306 acres) of intact forest will be compromised and the biodiversity of the area dramatically affected.

    The environment protection agency told AFP the permit, delivered on July 6, “is fully compliant with Romanian and European legislation.”

    The controversy over the road started five years ago, with environmentalists struggling to block the project.

    But two stretches of it have already been constructed, “illegally” according to WWF.
