Polish songs for a wedding

22 Oct 2007 /  #1
I want to have some polish songs during my wedding. But I don?t know any names; I would like to have more modern ones and would like to avoid disco polo, maybe 1 or 2 at the most.

American Polka artist....Lenny Gomulka and the Chicago Push

- Blue eyes crying in the rain (I love this song!!)
- Holiday in Poland
- Clarinet Polka (what Polish Polka fool just does not adore this song!! I do not know of anyone who can play this tune as amazingly as Lenny does on his live album!)

- lonley bachelor polka - Polish lyrics

from his Push it to the limit record

- love from above (cheesey sweet wedding song)

from his "under the influence" record
- a few things I know -- is a nice romantic modern Polka - perfect wedding song
- lost bouquet - polish lyrics
- all the way - is a nice romantic one

Some Polish wedding songs (Oczepiny - Unveiling Songs) that are used here in the US are:

Serdeczna Matko - Mother Beloved
Rosnie Trawka - The Unveiling Song
Spadła z Wisni - The Cherries are Falling
Pani Młoda - New Bride
Sto Lat - May You Live a Hundred Years
Górszka Wodka - Bitter Vodka
Jak Szybko Mijają Chwile - As Time Goes By

Take your pick - they are all great. Congratulations and good luck!

I know that on every wedding in Poland the song "Prawy do lewego" by Kayah (music by Goran Bregovic) is very popular.

Does anyone have the words for "Rosnie Trawka" or know where I can get them?

In english or Polish?

Rosnie Trawka
The Unveiling Song
As lovely green grass grows, throughout the promised land,
Before the main altar, you've given_____ your hand.
You've given _______ your hand, he gave a golden band,
Your eyes swelled up with tears, before your friends on hand.
Twelve lovely white petals, attached to this white rose,
Twelve heavenly angels, will serve the bride they chose.
The first angel has brought a white candle's brilliance,
The second angel brought, a lily's full fragrance.
The third angel has brought a lovely bouquet to hold,
The fourth angel has brought, your wedding band of gold.

And here's a different rośnie trawka in Polish:

Rośnie trawka, ziółko,
Zimne dni się, mienią,
Ty, wierna jaskółko,
Znów przed naszą sienią.

Z tobą słońce dłuzej,
Z tobą miła wiosna;
Witaj nam z podróży,
Śpiewaczko radosna.

Nie leć, czekaj, słowo!
Może ziarnka prosisz?
Może piosnkę nową
Z cudzych stron przynosisz?

Latasz, patrzysz wkoło
Czarnymi oczyma...
Nie patrz tak wesoło,
Nie ma jej tu, nie ma!

Poszła za żołnierza,
Tę rzuciła chatkę,
Koło tego krzyża
Pożegnała matkę.

Może lecisz od niej?
Po wiedzże mi przecie,
Czy nie są tam głodni,
Czy im dobrze w świecie?

Thank you for the English & Polish words to Rosnie Trawka. The words to the Polish version seem different than those that I remember. Could there be more than one? I am looking for the Polish words to the one about the angels. Thank you.

I am still looking for the words to the unveiling song, Rosnie Trawka - that translates to 12 Angels. I need them in Polish. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it. Thanking you in advance.

does anyone know a song that has both polish and english words. One part in enlish says "don't be sad today daddy it's my wedding day"? I alway would listen to this with my dad growing up and he died before I was married and we went through his records, tapes and could not find it. I have been married for 13yrs. now and it still bothers me that I have not been able to figure out the song.

Argh... "Windą do nieba" is not a wedding song. The woman sings that she's very sad, because she must marry a man she don't even love. Many Pole woman don't even listen to the text of this song, I've noticed...
