I don’t know much about the Xaladitka (North Russian) Romani dialect, but from other translations I’ve seen, it’s not drastically different from Kalderari, which is what I have a book on and have been slowly teaching myself. I normally can find lyrics to Kolpakov songs, but not for this one for whatever reason. I gave it a shot to translate, and hopefully it’s all right.

First two verses are in Romani, the last parts are in Russian. “Parnoj” is “steamy” in Russian, and here it means that the horse is working so hard or running so fast that the heat is just coming off its body like steam. I don’t know how to put that into a short sentence though.

Этот город навсегда останется в моём сердце, эти люди, эти продавщицы, орудие: “Поставь водку на место!”. Спасибо одному человечку, кто смог нам найти свободную квартиру и совсем бесплатно, показал город и не дал замерзнуть на улице :D Спасибо работникам бара за отзывчивость, спасибо, Смоленск, за такие приключения и спасибо @elen_dobrokotov, ты самая крутая спутница!

Top 5 favorite Herberts.

Sorry if I’m answering it late I didn’t have a well enogh access to the internet in past two days. 

Hard to tell tbh because mostly with Herbert I simply either love them or don’t like them at all. My number one is definitely Marc Liebisch and he holds this position strongly. Second would be Kirill Gordeev. And if you’d look at my list of faves only they’re on it but I’d say third would be Sinan Bertrand. There’s also Rostislav Kolpakov but I preferred him as Graf. SO

1. Marc Liebisch

2. Kirill Gordeev

3. Sinan Bertrand

And I don’t want to make up the other two out of the blue, sorry about that
