BOOMERANG KOLO

This is a fun kolo and story that allowed me to throw caution to the wind, hopefully creating something unique and entertaining in the process.

   

What this kolo is about...

 

This is the story of Simo in his quest for a djevojka. He finds a girl and thinks he is in love; later, he then questions that love; and finally he realizes she is not the girl for him so he dumps her. The title comes from the fact that Simo ended up exactly where he started from, just like a Boomerang always returns to where it was thrown from.

   

This story-kolo is made up of a number of parts:

    

     1.  Opening Skit…the seljak, Simo, finds love in a café, in the form of a Beogradjanska named Lola - who seems impressed with his accordion.

     2.  The kolo then starts and Simo begins to impress her

     3.  The first song as part of the kolo, “Ja Sa Sela” begins at the point in their relationship where Simo thinks he loves Lola, but begins to wonder why someone like Lola would actually love someone like him?

     4.  The last song in the kolo, “Just Because” is at the later point in their relationship where Simo realizes that Lola is not the girl for him (the lyrics describe why) so he wisely decides to dump her.

 

Lyrics

Ja sa sela

 

Ja sa sela

A ona iz grada

Kad je ljubim

Pamet izgubim

 

Ja sam ruzan

Ona ljepotica

Kad je gledam

Sav se istopim

 

Ja sam sasav

Ona pametna

Kad govori

Dusa zadrhti

 

Pa se mislim

Ko je ovde sasav?

Jer me draga

Voli bas ‘vakoga.

 

Just Because...

Ev-ri-baw-di pjevaj !

Lets go hey hey!

Lets go hey hey!

Lets go hey hey! Anoder von bites da dust

Lets go hey hey! Anoder von bites da dust

Lets go hey hey! Anoder von bites da dust

Lets go hey hey! Anoder von bites da dust

Vell - Just because you think you’re so lepa (lepa)

Just because you think you’re so vruca (nisi)

Just because you think you got nesto (sum-ting)

That nobody else ima

Just because you spend all my novac (ma-ni)

You laughed and called me old Sveti Nikola (ho ho ho)

I am telling you baba I am through with you (bye bye)

Zato zato zato
