Take Me Out to Slovenia

Bill Murray – Take me out to Slovenia

Ameriška igralska legenda Bill Murray je danes obiskal naše veleposlaništvo. Kot nekateri morda veste, je gospod Murray izjemno goreč navijač bejzbol ekipe Chicago Cubs, saj na njihovih tekmah pogosto prepeva tradicionalno navijaško pesem »Take Me Out to the Ballgame.« Ker smo ameriško veleposlaništvo v Sloveniji, smo tekst malo priredili in gospoda Billa Murraya povabili k petju slovenske verzije z naslovom: »Take me out to Slovenia!« Seveda ob spremljavi vojaškega atašeja Krista Thodoropolousa na harmoniki.Tekst:Take me out to Slovenia,Take me up with Triglav. Buy me some štruklji and poticaI don't care if I ever go back. Let me root, root, rootFor Postojna's Baby Dragon If he don't spawn it's a shame! For it's ena, dva, tri vinaYou're out in Ljubljana!

So, there I was… Mr. Murray made a trip to the U.S. Embassy in Ljubljana while in Slovenia to promote the Slovenia brand vodka. Some guys made up some words to make the song more Slovenian-ish and I had the accordion ready to go. One round of practicing the words and he was ready for showtime. It was 9:30 in the morning and there was only coffee in his cup. Good times!
