Obligatory LSS Lyrics Translations

Here in The Marocharim Experiment, the only way to get rid of a last song syndrome is to translate it.  All too often, lyrics translations qualify under:

  • Songs people don’t like;
  • Songs people like, and;
  • Songs that are just plain translate-able.

It’s a bad LSS weekend, here’s a set of three lyrics translations for you.  Or for me, to get them out of my head.

1.  Oh yes, this is gonna be burnination.  Blame it all on the odd news pages.

Baton of the Police
Viva Hot Babes, “Batuta Ng Pulis”

Long it’s long it’s long it’s long it’s long
Fat it’s fat it’s fat it’s fat it’s fat
Big it’s big it’s big it’s big
Baton of the police, police, police police police

Black it’s black it’s black it’s black it’s black
Good it’s good it’s good it’s good it’s good
Hard it’s hard it’s hard it’s hard it’s hard
Baton of the police, police, police police police

Mr. Policeman, help me out here… Help!
Whack your baton, on my boyfriend who’s too headstrong
Mr. Policeman, help me out here… Help!
Whack your baton, whack your baton

Shiny shiny shiny shiny shine
Sharpy sharpy sharpy sharpy sharp
It’s round it’s round it’s round it’s round it’s round
Baton of the police, police, police police police

Mr. Policeman, help me out here… Help!
Whack your baton, on my boyfriend who’s too headstrong
Mr. Policeman, help me out here… Help!
Whack your baton, whack your baton

Your baton is the solution I’m looking for
For my boyfriend to not be bad anymore

2.  I’m surprised you made it that far.  Lin Yu Chun impressed the heck out of me, so here’s a Whitney classic.

Ika’y Laging Mamahalin
Whitney Houston, “I Will Always Love You”

Kung ako’y mananatili
Ako’y sagabal lamang sa ‘yong mithi
Lilisan na, pero alam ko na
Lagi kang nasa isip ko bawat sandali…

Ika’y laging mamahalin…
Ika’y laging mamahalin…
Ikaw… giliw ko ikaw…

Alaalang, kay tamis at pait
Iyan lamang ang dala ko sa ‘king paglisan
Paalam, huwag mo ‘kong iyakan
Alam nating di ako ang iyong kailangan

Ika’y laging mamahalin…
Ika’y laging mamahalin…

Sana’y mabait sa iyo ang tadhana
Umaasa akong pangarap mo’y magkatotoo
Hangad ko sa iyo’y saya, at ligaya
Higit sa lahat, sana’y ika’y magmahal muli

Ika’y laging mamahalin…
Ika’y laging mamahalin…
Ika’y laging mamahalin…
Ika’y laging mamahalin…
Ika’y laging mamahalin…
Ika’y, ika’y laging mamahalin…

Ikaw, mahal kita…
Ika’y laging mamahalin…

3.  I have the feeling I wrote this before, but since I can’t find it:

When The Heart Starts Beating
Donna Cruz, “Kapag Tumibok Ang Puso”

Sharam-daram, sharamdam
Sharam-daram, sharamdam
Sharam-daram, sharamdam
Ohhhh…

Here it is again, I’m hearing it
My chest starts thumpin’ with a nervous beat
And ask with so much ado:
Can I stand so close to you?

Just for a moment, please oh please
Give it a chance, oh, pretty please
That old feeling hit me again

‘Coz when the heart starts beating
You cannot help but follow it you can’t do anything
‘Coz when the heart starts beating
You must watch out, you’ll probably get caught

Sharam-daram, sharamdam
Sharam-daram, sharamdam
Sharam-daram, sharamdam
Ohhhh…

Thinking of you through nights and days
Dreaming that I’ll be in your embrace
My blank stare and lovestruck smile
My heart’s still poundin’, there’s no denial

I want to say that I love you
Every moment I’m missin’ you
That old feeling hit me again

‘Coz when the heart starts beating
You cannot help but follow it you can’t do anything
‘Coz when the heart starts beating
You must watch out, you’ll probably get caught

Sharam-daram, sharamdam
Sharam-daram, sharamdam
Sharam-daram, sharamdam
Ohhhh…

‘Coz when the heart starts beating
You cannot help but follow it you can’t do anything
‘Coz when the heart starts beating
You must watch out, you’ll probably get caught

‘Coz when the heart starts beating
You cannot help but follow it you can’t do anything
‘Coz when the heart starts beating
You must watch out, you’ll probably get caught

‘Coz when the heart starts beating
You cannot help but follow it you can’t do anything
‘Coz when the heart starts beating
You must watch out, you’ll probably get caught
