Vevi the squirrel disobeys an elder by climbing the sacred tree...he falls and injures his leg...his friends hear him cry, but come only to laugh at him...one of them finally calls a doctor who bandages Vevi...Vevi is still in pain and accuses the doctor of being fake...everyone leaves rude Vevi in the forest by himself...

Verse 1:
Veverita sa suiit in pom (The squirrel climbed into a tree)
Si de acolo, a cazut jos (And from there it fell down)
Vai saraca, ce rau a patit (Poor thing, it really suffered)
Picorusul, tare la lovit... (It hit it's leg so hard...)

Awoleu veverita 8x (Poor squirrel)

One day like dat b

Den e dey rosh gidigidi
Mek u com see, the way e tishwii
E start scream for help dey cry
Be like e break e leg
E paddies com around

One of dem bell the doctor

Verse 2:
Vine doctor, intro greaba (The doctor comes in a hurry)
Picorusul, acolo il leaga (Bandages the squirrel's leg)
Domnul doctor, ce rau ma doare (Mr.Doctor, it hurts me so bad)
Mi-ai legato, foarte tare... (You tied it too tight...)

Awoleu veverita 8x
