Party On The Clouds

When it’s storming outside
And you hear loud thunder
Don’t be scared little one
But it’s okay to wonder.

Think as if there’s a party
And clouds are playing drums
Don’t worry about a thing
When you hear those dum-dums!

Yes, it’s big beautiful clouds
Playing a concert up in Cloudland
The fans clap and shout
For their favorite cloud band.

When you hear lots of thunder
Be happy! Nature is singing live!
When you are out of fingers to number
They’re just giving loud high fives!

Don’t be scared little one
From lightning up high in the sky
The concert needs sound and lights
And some wind that goes by.

Next time you hear thunder
Don’t go hide under your cover
Join the party with the clouds
Before it’s gone, before it’s over.

PO BIE SHI!

2014-10-02 19.49.47

Retë hedhin litarët e gjatë,

Që shiu të zbresë mbi tokë.

Mijëra pikla rendin me nxitim

Ca bien mbi çadra, ca mbi kokë.

 

Ca bien mbi pellgje me ujë

Ca bien mbi çati

Ca bien mbi gjethe e lule

Ca lajnë xhamat në çdo shtëpi.

 

Ca mbi gjuhë vogëlushësh,

Kur përqeshin shoku-shokun.

Ca mbi sy e mbi kapuçë…

Mua sot më lagu bllokun.

 

Ca pikla bien mbi hundë

Ca mbi det, liqen e shatërvan

Ca mbi rrugë e trotuarë

Ca të tjera makina lajnë.

 

Kur zbret shiu nga qielli

Të gjithë njerëzit i prek

Kur bie shi mos u dëshpëroni

Kur bie shi, ju prekni retë!
