Lyrics and their meanings.

Gogol Bordello is very special band. Sometimes their lyrics is very hard to understend. They use english, russian and spanish languages.
Let's try to understand meaning of one of the most popular Gogol Bordello's song - Start Wearing Purple.

Start wearing purple wearing purple
start wearing purple, for me now
all your sanity and wits, they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time...

I know you since you were a twenty and I was twenty
but thought that some years from now
a purple little little lady will be perfect
for dirty old and useless clown

So yeah, start wearing purple wearing purple!
Start wearing purple for me now!
All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish,
I promise, it's just a matter of time!

I know it all from Diogenis to Foucault
from Lozgechkin to Paspartu
I ja kljanus obostzav dva paltza
schto muzika poshla ot Zvukov Mu!...

Start wearing purple wearing purple!
Start wearing purple for me now!
All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish,
I promise, it's just a matter of time!

So yeah, start wearing purple wearing purple!
Start wearing purple for me now!...
So why don't you start wearing purple?
Why don't you start wearing purple...
Start wearing purple for me now!

All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish,
I promise, it's just a matter of time!...

So Fio-Fio-Fioletta! Etta! Va-va-va-vaja dama ti moja!
Eh podayte name karetu, votetu, i mi poedem k ebenjam!
So yeah, start wearing purple wearing purple!
Start wearing purple for me now!
All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish,
I promise, it's just a matter of time!...



The reason this song is called start wearing purple is because recently in Russia, the "in" fasion was purple, not just an accent of purple, but full purple outfits, it was seen as, not exactly a rebelious thing, but more of a youth thing. Kinda like leather and the such.
Start wearing purple is a reference to when people start growing old and crazy, they tend to start wearing purple because the color purple is a very sain color for them. Something about purple conferts the mind.
Therefore, Start wearing purple has much meaning, not pointless at all.
Just think of all those women that you wish would of started wearing purple for you.
From an interview:
"It’s a very deep, spiritual song. It’s actually the least serious song I’ve every written. It’s actually one of the very few songs that was written for a girl, which was my girlfriend at the time. When I first moved to New York in ’98 I had this, kind of obsessive, crazy psychic gypsy lady who was living right next to us, in our building. And you know how it is some people have this fixation with a certain colour, and purple is one of those colours, and that is the whole archetype of these ladies, she was wearing everything: shoes, stockings, handkerchief, skirt, coat, everything, purple shades she was crazy. And one of my girlfriends, she was getting crazy, getting out of hand I was saying ‘you might as well start wearing purple now, because that’s exactly what’s gonna happen to you’. One day I just sat down with a guitar and basically just set it down with just an A minor chord and a song rolled out of it. I love it when that happens. Some songs just roll out.."

It's not about Russian fashion trends. It's not about Nazis making Germans who disagreed "wear purple".

The writer of the song said their neighbor, a woman, was crazy and always wore purple.

So he would tease his wife that she should go ahead and start wearing purple. (sanity and wits they will all vanish, i promise, it's just a matter of time)
