1. Good King Wenceslas look'd out,
On the Feast of Stephen;
When the snow lay round about,
Deep, and crisp, and even:
Brightly shone the moon that night,
Though the frost was cruel,
When a poor man came in sight,
Gath'ring winter fuel.

2. "Hither page and stand by me,
If thou know'st it, telling,
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?"
"Sire, he lives a good league hence.
Underneath the mountain;
Right against the forest fence,
By Saint Agnes' fountain."

3. "Bring me flesh, and bring me wine,
Bring me pine-logs hither:
Thou and I will see him dine,
When we bear them thither."
Page and monarch forth they went,
Forth they went together;
Through the rude winds wild lament,
And the bitter weather.

4. "Sire, the night is darker now,
And the wind blows stronger;
Fails my heart, I know now how,
I can go no longer."
"Mark my footsteps, good my page;
Tread thou in them boldly;
Thou shalt find the winter's rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly."

5. In his master's steps he trod,
Where the snow lay dinted;
Heat was in the very sod
Which the saint had printed.
Therefore, Christian men, be sure,
Wealth or rank possessing,
Ye who now will bless the poor,
Shall yourselves find blessing.

(From it's tacky thread)
Been listening to this again
Lyrics are simple but good.
My translation misses a lot:

Miro la vida pasar/ I look at life passing by

Mi indiferencia natural/ My natural indifference
Curtida en mil batallas contra la pereza/ hardened with a thousand battles against laziness
Borra del mapa todo amor/ erases all love from the map
Porque en mi vida todo acaba como empieza/ because in my life everything ends like it started

Y en plan travesti radical/ And in a transvestite radical way
Le doy la espalda a cualquier muestra de tristeza/ I turn my back on any sign of sadness
¿Melancolía o decepción?/ Melancholy or dissapointment?
¿Felicidad o tentación?/ Happiness or temptation?
Todo podría ir a peor.../ Everything could get worse

[Estribillo]/ Chorus
Mientras tanto miro la vida pasar/ Meanwhile I look at life passing by
Y no sabes cuanto me cuesta aceptar que no volverás/ and you don't know how hard is accepting you won't be back
Por el momento miro la vida pasar/ So far, I look at life passing by
Sin venir a cuento alguien te vuelve a nombrar/ Out of the blue someone names you again

Pasado el tiempo sigo igual/ Time passes, I stay the same
A veces pienso que he perdido la cabeza/ Sometimes I think I lost my head
Y algunos días sin razón/ and some days for no reason
Ya ni me late el corazón/ my heart doesn't even beat
En esta cárcel de rencor/ in this rancor prison

[Estribillo]/ Chorus

Siempre he sido fuerte/ I've always been strong
Aunque a veces he dudado/ But sometimes I doubt
Si la suerte no se ha reído de mí... / if luck didn't laugh at me...

[Estribillo]/ Chorus

- Alaska (Fangoria)

Maybe with the music you'll understand more:

Sueño con serpientes / I dream of snakes

Sueño con serpientes, con serpientes de mar, / I dream of snakes, sea snakes,
con cierto mar, ay, de serpientes sueño yo. / of some sea, ay, sea of snakes.
Largas, transparentes, y en sus barrigas llevan / Long and transparent, in their bellies they carry
lo que puedan arrebatarle al amor. / all that snatched from love.

Oh, la mato y aparece una mayor. / Oh, I kill it and a bigger one appears
Oh, con mucho más infierno en digestión. / Oh, with much more hell in its digestion

No quepo en su boca. Me trata de tragar / I don't fit in its mouth. It tries to swallow me
pero se atora con un trébol de mi sien. / but it chokes on a clover from my temple.
Creo que está loca. Le doy de masticar / I believe it's mad. I give it a dove to chew
una paloma y la enveneno de mi bien. / and gets poisoned with my good

Ésta al fin me engulle, y mientras por su esófago / This one in the end bolts me. While
paseo, voy pensando en qué vendrá. / its esophagus I pass, I wonder what's to come
Pero se destruye cuando llego a su estómago / but it is destroyed when by the stomach
y planteo con un verso una verdad. / truth arises from my verse

by Silvio Rodríguez

"Calentaré tu palma fría
en las entrañas de un animal.
Sé que duele, es la vida;
sólo la muerte no causa dolor."




(Strangely this one disappeared once or twice:)
Era un perro callejero, no tenia más que venas / It was a stray dog, had nothing but veins
dicen que murió hace tiempo / they say it died long ago
entodavía lo tengo cerca / but I've still got him near

It is true Sabina is tiring when he goes all like "It's a lie I didn't lie. It's a lie I doubt about doubts" but when that's not the gravitational center of the song the songs are nice.



It's a lie that I know what I want
It's a lie I sing for the sake of singing
It's a lie I'm a better bullfighter with a real bull.
It's a lie I don't have ambitions
It's a lie my nose grows
It's a lie that when I write love songs I think of you.

I tell you, it's a lie I was a bank robber
It's a lie I won't be one again
It's a lie we loved each other so much...it seems like yesterday.
I swear, it's a lie. Santa is the parents
It's a lie rock and roll's dead
It's a lie kisses without love taste like vinegar
(kisses without love)

But for lies, nothing like reality,
promises everything and gives nothing
I never lied to you but to see you laugh.
Less pious than the heart ones
are the lies of goddess Reason,
I only told you half a truth upside down
it's not the same as half a lie!

It's a lie I don't have enemies
It's a lie they're not right
It's a lie I accept the navel of the world, I am not.
It's a lie I didn't lie to you
It's a lie I won't lie anymore
It's a lie a repeated rumour deserves to be true.

It's a big lie that I lie in boleros
It's a lie we stayed past ten *[song]
It's a lie I'm a gentleman when no one sees me.
I repeat, it's a lie the glass through which you observe me
It's a lie I doubt about doubts
It is a lie a hundred lies won't tell the truth
(won't tell the truth...)

No use to deny I wanted to die, the day you said we were through
But now that I find you're out of my mind, I can't believe that it's true
I've forgotten somehow that I cared so before
And it's wonderful now, I don't hurt anymore

it's best to find a place to hide

Goin' out

the way you've been treatin' me baby

savin' my money
for a rainy day
it's rainy, baby

the line it curves
a certain way
bend back to the start
'cause you're the woman
who broke my heart

i just won't be comin' home today
or tomorrow either, baby

'cause you're the only one
that can mend this heart

Stand up
and be a mountain
power
of the train

the sea
it being a livin' thing
the river
like a hand

jump up
and be a cloud again
rain
upon the land

oh
are you sure
oh
are you sure

oh
are you sure
you just might
fall
in love

stand up
and be a mountain
power
of the train

the sea
it being a livin' thing
the river
like a hand

jump up
and be a cloud again
rain
upon the land

oh
are you sure
oh
are you sure

though some say it's more like this   



Nunca acaba esta noche, nunca acaba | It's never ending, this night is never ending
ya pasa poca gente por las calles | there's few people on the streets already
Todos duermen, malditos, descansan, | They all sleep, damn, they rest,
y esta noche nunca acaba. | and this night is never ending.

Todo parece tranquilo y en paz | Everything seems quiet and in peace
Las penas diarias fueron arrojadas | The sorrows of yesterday were thrown away
como la ropa vieja y usada | like old wasted clothes
Y esta noche nunca acaba. | and this night is never ending

Sólo yo voy sin rumbo en la calle | Only I am walking aimlessly the street
Piso la ciudad, la insulto y la escupo, | I step on the city, I insult it and spit on it
pero se saber que nadie te espera | but it's known no one's waiting
la hace enemiga a la calle desierta | it makes it the enemy, the deserted street

Y hace tan siniestra esa calle poblada | and makes it so sinister, the crowded street
Por eso mis pies, por eso mis pies | for that my feet, for that my feet
Por eso mis pies pisan tu espalda | for that my feet step on your back
Maldita ciudad, maldita ciudad | damn city, damn city
Maldita ciudad, maldita ciudad. | damn city, damn city

Sólo yo voy sin rumbo en la calle, | Only I am walking aimlessly the street
pero los bares ya ni me saludan, | but the bars don't even say hello
las ventanas me cierran sus ojos. | the windows closed their eyes to me

Miro la cartelera del cine | I look at the billboards
no echan nada esta noche | there's nothing tonight
esta noche nunca acaba. | This night is never ending

Ojalá que llegara | May it come
el fin del mundo esta noche | the end of the world, tonight
y esta noche no acaba, nunca acaba | and this night is never ending
maldita ciudad, maldita ciudad | damn city, damn city
maldita ciudad, maldita ciudad | damn city, damn city

Tente en pie
...

Yo no le temo a la muerte
Y así la enfrenté en el valle
Sin el permiso de Dios
La muerte no mata a nadie

La-rara, la-rara

Yo temo más a la gente
Que va por la vida hablando
Sembrando envidia en la mente
Que la ilusión va matando, caramba

La-rara, la-rara
La-rara, la-rara
La-rara, la-rara
