It's a jump up jungle, little like a break beat
Never seen that hit – bunica beat the drum-a
Big mallet in the hand, high hat in the same beat
She's screaming like Hawkins, my old Big Mama

Bunica beat the drum-a like I never heard before
She's a slapping Miss Blackman, gimme some more
Check it, let's kick it, we wanna dance now
We are turning into hammers, ticking rhythm out

Bunica bate doba (Hey)
Bunica bate tare (Hey)
Bunica bate doba cu machuca 'n casa mare
Bunica bate doba (Hey)
Bunica bate tare (Hey)
Bunica cu machuca bate doba 'n casa mare

I love so much doba making boom-boom
Now get your body moving, just follow the tune
It's a real magic – Big Mama play her drum-a
She's flying into trance like an Indian shaman

Who's the Beatles? Where from is Peter Pan?
Who's the gypsy Jimi Hendrix?
She don't care, that Mrs. L.
I smile, I cry when I see that crazy baba
Dizzy tempo, dizzy, let's go, my music mama

Bunica bate doba (Hey)
Bunica bate tare (Hey)
Bunica bate doba cu machuca 'n casa mare
Bunica bate doba (Hey)
Bunica bate tare (Hey)
Bunica cu machuca bate doba 'n casa mare

People in the place, feel your body shakes
Bunica beat the drum-a tapping out the breaks
Pop you up with that beat, get rid of rotten meat
You dig with your soul deep inside that rock 'n' roll

She's a drum machine, you know what I mean
She wanna play jumparale to make you spin
Drain a bottle of wine, no need to roll the leaves
By the end of that show, you will blow yourself to bits

Bunica bate doba (Hey)
Bunica bate tare (Hey)
Bunica bate doba cu machuca 'n casa mare
Bunica bate doba (Hey)
Bunica bate tare (Hey)
Bunica cu machuca bate doba 'n casa mare

Bunica bate doba (Hey)
Bunica bate tare (Hey)
Bunica bate doba cu machuca 'n casa mare
Bunica bate doba (Hey)
Bunica bate tare (Hey)
Bunica cu machuca bate doba 'n casa mare

You are real drum machine
You make me wanna dance, you are slapping queen
To get that state you drink juice from grapes
And I go deep into the music space

Bunica bate doba
Bunica bate tare
Bunica bate doba cu machuca 'n casa ma... ma... ma...

Bunica bate doba (Hey)
Bunica bate tare (Hey)
Bunica bate doba cu machuca 'n casa mare
Bunica bate doba (Hey)
Bunica bate tare (Hey)
Bunica bate doba cu machuca 'n casa mare
