Lost in Translation?

(Hubby says that was one of the worst movies he ever saw! Correction: he doesn't admit to having seen it at all.)

Two songs for y'all ... one is an English translation of a Spanish song, one is a Spanish translation of an English song. We'll be sharing these in Missions Hour this Sunday. Yay! Who wants to guess the name of the song that has been translated into Spanish? I'll be giving out e-props as a prize! (And you can't guess if you are from Chile!)

1. Siempre que me muevo es en Ti

Siempre que me muevo es en Ti
Junto a Ti Cristo
Siempre que respiro es en Ti
Siempre cada paso es en Ti
Tu eres mi camino
Siempre que respiro es en Ti

Oh Tu gracia y Tu bondad
Miro alrededor Tu estas alli
Tu amor me capturo
Oh gran Dios de amor
No entiendo aun

2. The YoYo Song

I don’t want to be a yo-yo
A yo-yo
A yo-yo
I don’t want to be a yo-yo
A yo-yo
A yo-yo

‘Cause it’s sometimes up
It’s sometimes down
It’s on its side
Or spinning around

I want to be like an arrow
Walking down God’s narrow path
I’ll keep my eyes on Jesus
And I will never look back

Yesterday I was watching Friends and I have a few choice phrases to share. If you don't watch Friends, what is the matter with you? It's sooo funny.

I LOVE JACQUES COUSTEAU! I WASN'T SUPPOSED TO PUT BEEF IN THE TRIFLE!
It tastes like feet!
Ross married Rachel in Vegas and got divorced! AGAIN!
What's not to like? Cream? Good. Custard? Good. Meat? Gooooood.
Hurricane Gloria didn't break the porch swing, Monica did!

Ok yes, those are all from the same show. But it was a good one.

Open the eyes of my heart?

"Lost In Translation" was awful. I couldn't believe that film was so hyped.

"That's a lot of information to get in 30 seconds..."

(and I cheated and looked up the song... I won't ruin it for those trying for the e-props ;) )

It is not Open the Eyes of my Heart ... and thanks for not ruining it Euge, haha!

Is it a well-known Sunday School song?

snerk said...

It is fairly well known, but it's also fairly new, I think, we certainly didn't sing it as kids. The translation isn't exactly literal though, I think that would have been too hard.

Is it "Every Move I make"?

What is this one?

ESTE ES MI DESEO HONRARTE A TI
CON TODO MI SER TE ADORARE
CON TODAS MIS FUERZAS TE ALABARE
MI ADORACION ERES TU

(CHORUS)
HOY TE RINDO MI SER
TE DOY MI CORAZON
YO VIVO PARA TI

snerk said...

Yes, it is Every Move I Make ... and that other song is "This Is My Desire" or "I give You my heart" - I can never remember the name.... except.. it's missing a few lines ;)
