Summer is well under way in Croatia. But the season wouldn’t be complete without an upbeat hit from Severina – the country’s Eurovision 2006 singer. So without further ado – “Calimero”!

Admittedly, we’re a little disappointed that there’s no sign of the cute little black duckling from the Italian/Japanese cartoon (which was actually the inspiration behind the song title), but thankfully the music video is silly enough without him.

The clip shows Severina returning to the single life. She’s no longer in a love “coma” and wants to share her rumba moves with us. #YOLO

Turn a song on, give trumpets
I’m sick of this sadness
Let the rumba break my body
I was in a coma for a year and more

Shortly after the song’s premiere, Severina revealed a few more tidbits about Calimero on her Instagram page :

I was afraid of lions on making of the video, because they were so dreadful, and mariachi were playing pretty badly. All in all, this song is the most unusual I have ever done, an average childish turbo-folk that will achieve an above average viewership.

“Calimero” is supposed to be a follow-up to her biggest hit – “Brad Pitt” – which was included on The Hollywood Reoporter’s 2011 list of Europe’s best songs.

Severina Calimero lyrics

Dovi?enja, dragi rekla sam
Koji put po redu, Bože ‘ko to zna
Još jedna muška farsa dvolicna
Iz malog mozga evo nocas brisem ga
Da ga volim laz je notorna
Moj je status opet tako slobodna

A sta nam sada treba, sta, sta, sta?
Samo malo dobrog provoda

Gore, dolje, naprijed, natrag
Lijevo, desno, svuda meni dragi ljudi, to je pravo mjesto

Refrain

Dajte pjesmu, dajte trube
Dosta mi je ove tuge
Nek mi rumba tijelo lomi
Godinu i jace bila sam u komi

Bit cu opet kao nova
Prva zelja muskih snova
Duge noge, vitko tijelo
Oko sebe vatru pali Calimero

Gledam oko sebe, zumiram
Osim vode, nocas sve konzumiram
Evo moju pjesmu sviraju
Ajmo, cure, dame prve biraju
Sijaju u mraku zvjezdice
Ma to su samo moje vjerne frendice

A sta nam sada treba, sta, sta, sta?
Samo malo dobrog provoda

Gore, dolje, naprijed, natrag
Lijevo, desno, svuda meni dragi ljudi, to je pravo mjesto

Chorus

Dajte pjesmu, dajte trube
dosta mi je ove tuge
Nek mi rumba tijelo lomi
godinu i jace bila sam u komi

Bit cu opet kao nova
prva zelja muskih snova
Duge noge, vitko tijelo
oko sebe vatru pali Calimero

Calimero English translation

Goodbye, dear, I said
For how many times, God, who knows
One more male double-minded farce
I’m deleting him from cerebellum tonight
That I love him is notorious lie
My status is so single again

And what do we need now, what, what, what?
Just a little of good fun

Up, down, forward, back
Left, right, all around me dear people, that’s the right place

Chorus:
Turn a song on, give trumpets
I’m sick of this sorrow
Let rumba break my body
I was in a coma for a year and stronger

I’ll be like new again,
first wish of men’s dreams
Long legs, slim body
Calimero turns fire on around himself

I’m watching around myself, zooming
I’m consuming everything tonight, except water
They are playing my song
Let’s go girls, ladies choose first
Little stars are shining in the dark
Those are only my loyal friends

And what do we need now, what, what, what?
Just a little of good fun

Up, down, forward, back
Left, right, all around me dear people, that’s the right place

Chorus:
Turn a song on, give trumpets
I’m sick of this sorrow
Let rumba break my body
I was in a coma for a year and stronger

I’ll be like new again,
First wish of men’s dreams
Long legs, slim body
Calimero turns fire on around himself

She was the only Croatian entry I liked. Her songs and style are both very fun.
She looks very different from her Eurovision days, though!

Croatia debuted in our Vision in 1993.. That EuroVision took place in my birthday <3 🙂 Croatia last took part in the Vision of Malmo in 2013.. I think that Croatians will possibly return finally to our Vision next year 🙂 They have offered us really beautiful entries.. <3 Like in 1998, 2005, 2009 & 2013 <3 Igor Kucrov{2009}Boris Novkovic{2005} & Marko Škugor from Klapa s Mora{2013} are very hot babes <3 🙂 Who knows…Maybe they are possibly either gay or bisexuals <3 😉 My #1 favorite croatian entry in Vision is the one of 1998 <3 Like also the… Read more »

Her visionary song in the Vision of 2006 was fun.. 🙂
I can’t believe that now its 9 whole years since then!
She had caused a scandal back then with her stolen se*x tape..
And Severina did it before other celebrities like Paris Hilton & Kim Kardashian..

If only a hot guy filmed & released a gay p*rn se*x tape instead <3 I would be hella interested to watch it of course <3 😉
