Lengua isleña

 

Ni singulal ni plujal
En laj islaj linguitica.
Nadie puedentendel na
Hablando asi
Boca floja del trópico
Llena de pernil
Se oye dede laamaca
Sumelgida en Malta Goya
Rebalando en la chojera
Fumando en el cajo
Encantao cantando
En el coro
Con el patol
Eperando
La huracán

Peroigan:
Utede debe usal maj
Lo muculoj
Orale y maxilofaciale
Paablal . . .

Baby (Os Mutantes)

Love Brazil


You know – you must take a look at the new land
The swimming pool and the teeth of your friend
The dirt in my hand
You know – you must take a look at me
Baby, baby – I know that’s the way
You know – you must try the new ice cream flavor
Do me a favor, look at me closer, join us and go far
And hear the new sound of my bossa nova
Baby, baby – It’s been a long time
You know – it’s time now to learn Portuguese
It’s time now to learn what I know, and what I don’t know…
and what I don’t know… and what I don’t know…
I know – with me everything is fine
It’s time now to make up your mind
We live in the biggest city of South America
Of South America… of South America
Look here – read what I wrote on my shirt:
Baby, baby – I love you… you do

Ask my Brazilian ex-wife what it means. 
The one tanning herself on the beach.
Yeah  – HER.

Eu quis cantar uma canção iluminada de sol
Soltei os panos sobre os mastros no are
Soltei os tigres e os leões nos quintais
Mas as pessoas na sala de jantar
São ocupadas em nascer e morrer
Mandei fazer de puro aço luminoso um punhal
Para matar o meu amor e matei
Às cinco horas na avenida central
Mas as pessoas da sala de jantar
São ocupadas em nascer e morrer
Mandei plantar folhas de sonhos no jardim do solar
As folhas sabem procurar pelo sol
E as raízes procurar, procurar
Mas as pessoas da sala de jantar
Essas pessoas da sala de jantar
Mas as pessoas da sala de jantar
São ocupadas em nascer e morrer

I wanted to sing a song enlightened by the sun
I left the clothes upon the flag poles in the air
I loosed the tigers and lions out in the backyard
But the people in the dining room are busy getting born and dying
I ordered a pure-steel bright dagger
to kill my love and I did
at 5 o’clock on the central avenue
But the people in the dinner room are busy getting born and dying
I ordered them to plant dream leaves in the solar garden
the leaves know how to look for the sun
and the root, to search, search
but the people in the dining room
those people in the dining room
but the people in the dining room
are busy getting born and dying
