When Inspiration Strikes… (PART 1)

Kalau lagi nggak bisa tidur, nggak mood kerja, saya dengerin lagu. Daaaannn… ujung-ujungnya saya malah nerjemahin lirik lagu sebebas mungkin versi saya.

Pagi ini, lagu berikutlah yang saya terjemahkan…

“Agak lucu juga ya, apa yang kita miliki di dalam sini… perasaan ini…. Sementara aku bukan tipe orang yang mudah menutup-nutupinya!

Aku memang bokek, tapi kalau punya banyak uang, akan kubelikan rumah sangat besar. Supaya kita bisa berdua bisa tinggal di sana.

 Aku memang pelupa, tapi beginilah diriku…. Jadi maafkan aku, karena sebenarnya aku lupa warna matamu hijau atau biru. Tapi, intinya, aku bermaksud mengatakan, bahwa kedua mata itu adalah mata terindah yang pernah kulihat.”

 

Ada yang bisa nebak lagu apa itu? Siapa penyanyinya? Kalau bisa, edit juga dong terjemahan saya itu. Hihihi (sekalian belajar XD). Orang pertama yang kirim jawabannya ke nanateuy@gmail.com bakalan dapat buntelan buku dari saya. Tapi satu aja, yaaaa… Jangan lupa di subjeknya sertakan [TEBAKJUDULLAGU]

Hadiahnya ini: HEROES OF THE VALLEY by Jonathan Stroud, terbitan GPU.

Yuk… ditunggu sampai hari Minggu, 9 September 2012, jam 24.00.

Piano Man

Billy Joel – Piano Man

Lagi suka lagunya Billy Joel, “Piano Man”. ini liriknya…

It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There’s an old man sitting next to me
Makin’ love to his tonic and gin

He says, “Son, can you play me a memory
I’m not really sure how it goes
But it’s sad and it’s sweet and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man’s clothes.”

la la la, di da da
La la, di di da da dum

Chorus:
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
And you’ve got us all feelin’ all right

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he’s quick with a joke and he’ll light up your smoke
But there’s some place that he’d rather be
He says, “Bill, I believe this is killing me.”
As his smile ran away from his face
“Well I’m sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place”

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he’s talkin’ with Davy, who’s still in the Navy
And probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessman slowly gets stoned
Yes, they’re sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it’s better than drinkin’ alone

Chorus
sing us a song you’re the piano man
sing us a song tonight
well we’re all in the mood for a melody
and you got us all feeling alright

It’s a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
‘Cause he knows that it’s me they’ve been comin’ to see
To forget about their life for a while
And the piano, it sounds like a carnivore
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, “Man, what are you doin’ here?”

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Chorus:
sing us a song you’re the piano man
sing us a song tonight
well we’re all in the mood for a melody
and you got us all feeling alright

You’re So Vain

You walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror as you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they’d be your partner
They’d be your partner, and…

You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t You?

You had me several years ago when I was still quite naive
Well you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved and one of them was me
I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and…

You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t You? Don’t You?

I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and…

You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t You?

Well I hear you went up to Saratoga and your horse naturally won
Then you flew your lear jet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun
Well you’re where you should be all the time
And when you’re not you’re with
Some underworld spy or the wife of a close friend
Wife of a close friend, and…

You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain, I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t You? Don’t you?

You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you
