History
Moldova has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest eight times, debuting in 2005. Following the poor result in the 2006 contest, the Moldovan broadcaster, Teleradio-Moldova (TRM) announced that it would withdraw from participation and did not allocate a budget for the 2007 Contest. However, in response to public pressure TRM filed the preliminary documents to compete and sent Natalia Barbu with song “Fight”.

lyrics

Grandma hits the drum
It’s a jump up jungle, little like a break beat
Never seen that hit – grandma beats da drum-a
Big mallet in the hand, high hat in the same beat
She’s screaming like Hawkins, my old big mama
Grandma beats da 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

Grandma hits the drum
Grandma hits it hard
Grandma hits the drum with a beetle in da house
Grandma hits the drum
Grandma hits it hard
Grandma with a beetle hits the drum in da house

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 Jimmy Hendrix?
She don’t care, that misses L
I smile, I cry when I see that crazy baba
Dizzy tempo dizzy, let’s go my music mama

Grandma hits the drum
Grandma hits it hard
Grandma with a beetle hits the drum in da house

People in da place, feel your body shakes
Boonika beat da drum-a tapping out the breaks
Pop you up with dat 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 dat show you will blow yourself to bits

Grandma hits the drum
Grandma hits it hard
Grandma hits the drum with a beetle in da house
Grandma hits the drum
Grandma hits it hard
Grandma with a beetle hits the drum in da house

Grandma hits the drum
Grandma hits it hard
Grandma hits the drum with a beetle in da house
Grandma hits the drum
Grandma hits it hard
Grandma with a beetle hits the drum in da house

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

Grandma hits the drum
Grandma hits it hard
Grandma hits the drum with a beetle in da house

Grandma hits the drum
Grandma hits it hard
Grandma hits the drum with a beetle in da house
Grandma hits the drum
Grandma hits it hard
Grandma with a beetle hits the drum in da house

Grandma hits the drum
Grandma hits it hard
Grandma hits the drum with a beetle in da house

Loca
Mmm… every night I need mi loca

Every night I need mi loco
Need him crazy just un poco

Hey, loca, give me, give me your boca (Yeah)
You’re my girl, you’re my loca (Can you feel this?)
You are breaking my heart
Whoa…

Hey, loco, please espera un poco
And I’ll give you my choco
Do you want it or not?

Every time I see mi loca
I feel I go crazy un poco (Yeah)
She’s so sexy, she’s so hot
Every night she’s breaking my heart

Every time I see mi loco
I realise he’s crazy un poco (That’s right)
And we keep on dancing all night long
With my boy, I will never feel alone

Hey, loca, give me, give me your boca
You’re my girl, you’re my loca (Yeah)
You are breaking my heart (Can you feel this?)
Whoa… (Can you feel this?)

Hey, loco, please espera un poco
And I’ll give you my choco
Do you want it or not?
(Once again now)

If I wanna taste her love tonight
Need to kiss her boca one more time
I can fly away and reach the stars
Every time I drown into her eyes

If I wanna taste his love tonight
I just have to hold mi loco tight
I can fly always and reach the stars
Every time he looks into my eyes

Hey, loca, give me, give me your boca
You’re my girl, you’re my loca
You are breaking my heart (Can you feel this?)
Whoa… (Can you feel this?)

Hey, loco (Come on)
Please espera un poco (Yeah)
And I’ll give you my choco (Just a little bit)
Do you want it or not?
Yeah, all right, mi Loco

She’s a little bit loco, a little bit cocoa
A little bit tall, yo, a little bit small, yo
A little Latino, a little Europio
A little bit choco, exotic Morocco

She’s a good girl, she’s a little mean
Nice body from the covers of a magazine
Eyes like deep green, lips like Angeline
The most beautiful girl that you ever seen

Hey, loca, give me, give me your boca (Yeah)
You’re my girl, you’re my loca (Can you feel this?)
You are breaking my heart (Come on)
Whoa…

Hey, loco, please espera un poco (Come on)
And I’ll give you my choco
Do you want it or not?
(Yeah, Connect-R, right on)

Yeah, come on, yeah
Love is love
Two thousand and six, yeah
Connect-R, Arsenium
For the next millennium, word
Love is love, baby
Can you hear me?
Can you feel this?
Once again

Fight
(Never, never, never, never)

Obsession, we hide in the back
And devotion’s finding a way
When highness exists for those people who pray

Every day is like a start
Ups and downs, tears and laugh
We never stop, just fight

Never let nobody in
And step right on your dream
If you really wanna take this trip
Fighting anywhere we go
To face this cruel world
We gotta just fight forever

Believing, forfeiting the past
The onfall’s adapting the hearts
Each people will know our wishes no more

Every day is like a start
Ups and downs, tears and laugh
We never stop, just fight

Never let nobody in
And step right on your dream
If you really wanna take this trip
Fighting anywhere we go
To face this cruel world
We gotta just fight forever

Ooh…

Fighting anywhere we go
To face this cruel world
We gotta just fight forever

A century of love
The rain has touched my steps
The rain has touched my smile
I’m going to its depth
It takes me to the sky

All the stars are falling down and now
I can reach the rainbow
Hold my hand and come with me
To my other way of being

This is all I mean
Be my everything
And remember
Our dreams together

This is all I need
Be my everything
And live forever
Ever, ever

All I need
Is to find a little place to live
In your heart
That’s what I want

And to find the words to say
To find the words I’ve never said
The words I need to touch your world
And your life to breathe your soul

A century is now not enough for your love

This is all I need
This is all I mean
Be my everything
And remember
Our dreams together

This is all I mean
Be my everything
And live forever
Ever, ever

All I need
Is to find a little place to live
In your heart
That’s what I want

And to find the words to say
To find the words I’ve never said
The words I need to touch your world
And your life to breathe your soul

A century is now not enough for my love

When you spin it, it gives you life
All with fire dash into the game
‘Cause it brings luck

Come play our dance (…)
Come shout louder, musician
So all people can hear it
Both the young and the older
Jump, jump around, more

All the seas, all the winds
All the feelings that you get from hora
All the day, past and nowaday
Oh the dance you wanna play

(Ra, he hey, he hey)
(Come to the dance, come to the dance from Moldova)

lyrics
Run away
Oh… forget, let me breathe, let me live
Just run away from my mind
Oh… forgive, I don’t need, I won’t breathe
Just get away from my life

You’ve lost one and all, so fly away
Over the clouds, under the sky
Never come back and run away
With all your might, give up you

I don’t believe anymore your shallow heart
I know that it’s you who chose to play this trick
I’ll never forgive you, not for anything
And now you are left with nothing

Oh… forget, let me breathe, let me live
Just run away from my mind
Oh… forgive, I don’t need, I won’t breathe
Just get away from my life

Oh… forget, let me breathe, let me live
Just run away from my mind
Oh… forgive, I don’t need, I won’t breathe
Just get away from my life

There’s no other time to making happiness
You have mistaken
We have no progressive future
I know your lying nature

There’s no other time to making happiness
You have mistaken
We have no progressive future
I know your lying nature

Oh… forget, let me breathe, let me live
Just run away from my mind
Oh… forgive, I don’t need, I won’t breathe
Just get away from my life

Oh… forget, let me breathe, let me live
Just run away from my mind
Oh… forgive, I don’t need, I won’t breathe
Just get away from my life

lyrics

So lucky

So lucky, so lucky

Flashes, ray ban glasses
I move with ease in my convertible breeze (So lucky)
Martini, whiskey on the rocks
Life on the top, my party never stops (So lucky)

Winner, a dusk to dawn sinner
Love traded in for lust, it’s emotions I don’t trust (So lucky)
On top, the cream of the crop
You know I love to rock, the fun will never stop (So lucky)

You see, it’s all about me
The servants and the king, I’m the ruler of the world (So lucky)
A tug, she pulls me like a drug
I want her on the rug, but she’s not that kind of girl (So lucky)

I see you where the lights glow
You pull me in your private side show
And now I see your moves in slo-mo
I try to kiss you, but you slip away

Yet you never walk away from me
Are you a shadow of what might be?
Why should one woman stand above the rest?
There is a mystery to you deep beneath the flesh

(So lucky, so lucky, so lucky, so lucky)

Those eyes pulling me in, a body made to sin
But I can not win (So lucky)
Wait, I’m ready at the gate, don’t tell me it’s too late
Her fire starts to melt my heart (So lucky)

She’s clean, not part of any scene
She’s more like a dream I don’t want to wake up from (So lucky)
I see, she’s somehow changing me
She’s where I want to be, can’t stand a moment without her (So lucky)
Anymore

I see you where the lights glow
You pull me in your private side show
And now I see your moves in slo-mo
I try to kiss you, but you slip away

Yet you never walk away from me
Are you a shadow of what might be?
Why should one woman stand above the rest?
There is a mystery to you deep beneath the flesh

So lucky!

lyrics

Lăutar
At the wedding tonight, she looks nicer than the bride
When she smiles, I forget my lyrics
I got blind, I got mad, not from the diamonds she had
But from the beauty that put my heart on fire

You have never been to my show
You haven’t seen before how looks the trumpet
But the sound goes straight to your soul, gets you out of control
This trumpet makes you my girl

(This trumpet makes you my girl)

Just like from paradise, you came down from the skies
On a plane which belongs to your daddy
Welcome to carousel, the wine is sweet, but take care
‘Cause too much is no good for a princess

You have never been to my show
You haven’t seen before how looks the trumpet
But the sound goes straight to your soul, gets you out of control
This trumpet makes you my girl

You have never been to my show
You haven’t seen before how looks the trumpet
But the sound goes straight to your soul, gets you out of control

You haven’t seen before (you’ve never seen before) how looks the trumpet
But the sound goes straight to your soul, gets you out of control
This trumpet makes you (my girl)
This trumpet makes you (my girl)
This trumpet makes you my girl
This trumpet makes you my girl
