Your favorite lyrics

Post them here! I always liked Blackbird, by The Beatles:

Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
Take these broken wings and learn to fly,
All your life,
You were only waiting for this moment to arrive,
Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see,
All your life,
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

ah, se ela soubesse que quando ela passa, o mundo inteirinho se enche de graça, e fica mais lindo por causa do amor =) the lyrics in Portuguese is a little more happy, something like "is she knews that when she passes, the entire world gets filled with grace, and gets more beautiful, because of love"

Tom Jobim is the best of all times

I never knew that the original lyric was so beautiful!! I wonder why the translation took a different path.
Truthfully, I think Brazilian Portuguese is the most beautiful language in the world...and I am fluent in French. Would love to learn it some day.
Bom dia, stile-alpine.

~~~~ Golden Years from Station to Station by David Bowie

~

Some of these days, and it won't be long,
Gonna drive back down where I once belonged,
In the back of a dream car twenty foot long,
Don't cry my sweet, don't break my heart,
Doing all right, but, gotta get smart,
Wish upon Wish, upon Day upon Day,
I believe oh God...I believe... all the way-!!!

Run for the shadows, run for the shadow in these golden years,
I'll stick with you baby for a thousand years,
Nothing's gonna touch us in these golden years,
Golden years, gold whop whop whop

~

well, since you liked it, I´m posting now the entire translation (made by me =P, so don´t mind about the mistakes!)

look what a beautiful thing, so full of grace
that is the girl that comes and passes by
in a sweet swing, on the way to the sea

girl of the golden body, from the Ipanema sun
your swing (walk) is more than a poem
it´s the most beautiful thing I´ve ever seen

oh, why am I so lonely?
oh, why is everything so sad?
oh, the beauty that exists
the beauty that isn´t just mine, that also passes (exists) by itself

and then comes the part that I´ve already translated before

the Portuguese lyrics where written by Vinicius de Moraes

the music was composed by Tom Jobim, and I think that he also did the English lyrics, but I´m not sure... I´ll check on that later!

Portuguese is nice, if you need help with it, just say it

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet
Who finds the money when you pay the rent
Did you think that money was heaven sent

Friday night arrives without a suitcase
Sunday morning creeping like a nun
Monday's child has learned to tie his bootlace
See how they run

Lady Madonna, baby at your breast
Wonders how you manage to feed the rest
Pa pa pa pa...
See how they run

Lady Madonna lying on the bed
Listen to the music playing in your head

Tuesday afternoon is never ending
Wednesday morning papers didn't come
Thursday night your stockings needed mending
See how they run

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet

This is pure poetry. Your translation is the best present you could ever give me.

btw Norman Gimbel wrote the English lyrics.

Slow down you move too fast
You got to make the moment last
Just kickin’ down the cobble stones
Lookin’ for fun and feelin’ groovy

Hello lamp post
What-cha knowin’
I’ve come to watch your flowers growin’
Ain’t-cha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-in Doo-doo
Feelin’ Groovy

Got no deeds to do
No promises to keep
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all it’s petals on me
Life I love you
All is groovy

Truely there is only but one song that should be mentioned here...

The machine of a dream, such a clean machine,
With the pistons a pumpin', and the hubcaps all gleam.
When I'm holding your wheel,
All I hear is your gear,
When my hand's on your grease gun,
Oh it's like a disease son,
I'm in love with my car, gotta feel for my automobile,
Get a grip on my boy racer rollbar,
Such a thrill when your radials squeal.

Told my girl I just had to forget her,
Rather buy me a new cartburettor,
So she made tracks sayin' ths is the end now,
Cars don't talk back they're just four wheeled friends now,

When I'm holding your wheel,
All I hear is your gear,
When I'm cruisin' in overdrive,
Don't have to listen to no run of the mill talk jive,

I'm in love with my car, gotta feel for my automobile,
I'm in love with my car, string back gloves in my automolove!

Yes... "I'm in love with my car" by Queen is very appropriate
