Gaulish original lyrics: Omnos

Omnos

Immi daga uimpi geneta
lana beððos et iouintutos
Blatus ceti, cantla carami
Aia gnata uimpi iouinca
pid in cete tu toue suoine
pid uregisi peli doniobi
Aia gnata uimpi iouinca
pid in cete tu toue suoine

Aia mape coime, adrete!
In blatugabagli uorete
cante snon celiIui in cete!

Vrit- me lindos dubnon -piseti (x2)

Nimmi mapos, immi drucocu
In cetobi selgin agumi
selgin blatos tou iouintutos
Nu, uoregon, cu, uorigamos
lamman, cu, suuercin lingamos
indui uelui cantla canamos!
Nimmi mapos, immi drucocu
In cetobi selgin agumi

Ne moi iantus gnaton uorega
iantus drucocunos uoregon
cante toi in medie cete

Vrit- me lindos dubnon -piseti (x4)

Cu allate, papon sod urege
eððiIo de iantu in cridie
VediIumi: cante moi uosta!

Ne, a gnata, ne uostami, ne te carami!
Nec carasumi!

Boua daga uimpi geneta
Immi trouga, lana nariIas

Vrit- me lindos dubnon -piseti (x2)

 
English translation: Fear
 

Fear

I am a fair, pretty girl
Full of virtue and youthfulness
The forest’s flowers and songs I love
Hey, pretty young girl
What are you doing in the forest alone
So far from all beings?
Hey, pretty young girl
What are you doing in the forest alone?

Hey, handsome boy, come here!
Let us pick some flowers
in this forest together!

Now only the deep pond awaits me (x2)

I am not a boy, I am the bad wolf
In the woods I hunt
Hunt for the flower of your youth
Well, wolf, let us play a game
Let us dance a joyful dance
Let us sing decent songs!
I am not a boy, I am the bad wolf
In the woods I hunt

I don’t like children’s games
I like playing sinister wolf games
In the depths of the forest, with you

Now only the deep pond awaits me (x4)

Wild wolf, do whatever your heart longs for
But I beg you: Stay with me!

No, girl, I’m not staying with you and don’t love you!
Never loved you!

I was a fair and pretty girl
Now I’m poor and overcome with shame

Now only the deep pond awaits me (x2)
