lyrics

Cô Tây Đen

Ơ! Rừng mái rừng me
Cô mặc áo thắm cô che dù hồng
Tập tầm vông
Tay xách ví đầm dắt chó bẹc-giê
Ơ! Rừng mái rừng me
Cùng ông săng- đá cô xe chỉ đào
Ô! Xinh đẹp làm sao
Cô đi lượn phố cô vào đăng-xinh
Mặt phấn mồm son
Ðầu tóc bùm xum
Ðẹp! Cô đẹp chín nghìn
Hàng mi cô cong
Tà áo cô bay, bay lượn như bướm xuân
Ơ! Rừng mái rừng me
Cô mặc áo thắm cô che dù hồng
Tình thấy hơi đồng
Cô lấy chồng Tây đen
Người ta lấy chồng cho bõ công má hồng
Cho bõ công tắm rửa bằng xà-phòng Ca-đum
Mà sao cô lại đem tấm thân ngọc
đứng bên ông tượng đồng


The Black Western Lady

Oh, dear the vast Forest
The lady who wears yếm*,
with a pink umbrella
Tập tầm vông**
Her hands tied to a fancy purse,
and she walks a German shepherd
Oh, dear the vast Forest
Together with a soldier, she flirts around
Oh! How beautiful and cute
She glides through town and goes dancing
Rosy cheeks, red lips
And a slick hairstyle
Beautiful! She’s like no one else,
Her eyelids are curly
Her coat-tail flies, flies like a spring butterfly
Oh, dear the vast Forest
The lady who wears yếm,
with a pink umbrella
With the sense for copper
She marries a black Westerner
They all get married to pay off the effort
Of having beautiful make up and bathing with
Cadum soap
But why would a pearl like you
Stand next to a copper man


* Yếm: a traditional Vietnamese bodice used primarily as an undergarment that was once worn by Vietnamese women
across all classes.
** Tập Tầm Vông: a title of a children song popular across Vietnam. The title references to the Dong Son Copper Drum. The song is based on a poem written 1918.
