Most Literate Hip Hop Song Ever

Unless you speak Polish, you'll just have to trust me on this. But be assured that this is 100% safe for Babcia.

I will send this along to a linguistically-minded 19-year old who happens to live in my house. It will probably be her ringtone in a couple of days given your assurances!

She can find the words (and a translation) by googling "Pan Tadeusz". The whole epic is online in both Polish and English. I recommend the literal translation by George Rapall Noyes.

Neat! I'm always amazed at how you introduce me, an expat Pole, to Polish contemporary culture ;) I'm a bit confused by the video - but I guess it is someone in an English-speaking country (hence the left-sided driving) who misses Poland?

Like all good Poles, I had to learn the Inwokacja in high school Polish class.
