"Dragostea Din Tei" or "Numa-Numa" is written in Romanian and it is not easy to translate.
But it is something about love at first sight.
There are several proposed translations of the title, such as Love among the linden trees. However, the intended translation is shown in the subtitles of the music video by O-Zone, which shows it as meaning Love of the linden tree. It is known that linden trees have strong lyrical associations in Romanian poetry, tied to the work of the Romanian poet Mihai Eminescu. Therefore the expression may be interpreted as romantic, 'linden-type' love.
