Víctimas - Jorge Villamizar Ft. Paul de Swardt (Cesar López - Toda Bala es Perdida)




Somos víctimas
de víctimas
de víctimas
del Desamparo

Víctimas
de víctimas
de víctimas
del Desamor


La historia que
cambia la historia que
no quiero repetir
la estamos construyendo

Yo aprendí en
la calle que un error
que no aprendimos bien
se sigue repitiendo


Víctimas son de su propia situación
injusticia y desamparo marcaron su condición con
la ilusión de escribir su propio guión
pero las malas vivencias suelen repetír patrón


Hay... Lamentaciones que oscurecen corazones
Pero miralo man como oscurece el corazón
I say...

y situaciones que heredan generaciones
Yah man, one love down for the nation
I say...

Nuestra misión concienciar a la nación
y a base de música levantaremos el telón
I say...

¿Quién es nadie para juzgar a los demás?
si todos somos víctimas de nuestras experiencias
I say...


Si cada manada educará su camada, yeah!
Si cada manada educará su camada, yeah!

Se curarán heridas en las calles
Yah man, one love down for the nation


Somos páginas
de páginas
de páginas
de un libro eterno

Páginas
de páginas
de páginas
que un día leerá


La historia que
cambia la historia que
no quiero repetir
la estamos reescribiendo

yo aprendí en
la calle que un error
que no aprendimos bien
se sigue repitiendo


Victims of a difficult situation
Dropping all around this sound
we want communication

Watering this nation
With some evolution

Isn't about the time
that we got to find
some kind of solution?


La historia que
cambia la historia que
no quiero repetir
la estamos reescribiendo

Yo aprendí en
la calle que un error
que no aprendimos bien
se sigue repitiendo


Muchas gracias a Paul de Swardt
por ayudarme a completar la letra

Greetings

La entonación con la que saludemos es sumamente importante.

En algunas ocasiones, las formales,
al saludar a nuestros mayores en rango o autoridad
debemos expresarles agrado y una sonrisa,
pero con respeto y sobriedad.

En otras con nuestros amigos, las informales,
es normal dejar manifestar nuestro entusiasmo y confianza,
llegando inclusive a intercambiar una que otra broma.

:-)



(El video lo adelanté a propósito hasta llegar a la parte importante)


Muchísimas gracias al Tutor Alejandro Cifuentes
del Centro SENA de Comercio y Servicios de Pereira
por permitirme conocer este útil video.

It's impossible - Emin Agalarov




It's impossible
to tell the sun to leave the sky
it's just impossible

It's impossible
to ask a baby not to cry
it's just impossible

Can I hold you
closer to me and not feel you
going through me?

But the second
that I never think of you?
Oh, how impossible


/ Can the ocean
keep from rushing to the shore?
It's just impossible

(and) If I had you
could I ever ask for more?
It's just impossible

And tomorrow
should you ask me for the world
somehow I'd get it

I would sell my very soul and not regret it
For to live without your love
It's just impossible /

Oh, impossible... Impossible...

The Majestic Plastic Bag - ¿Artificial Planet?


Si dejamos que la contaminación y los desechos
reemplacen a los animales en los mares
(De hecho muchos mueren por su causa)
tal vez estos sean los únicos 'documentales'
de criaturas animadas que veremos
en un futuro no tan lejano...





The open plains of the asphalt jungle, home to many creatures, great and small ... and the pupping ground for one of the most clever and illustrious creatures: the plastic bag. Today we explore the cycle of life for this curious creature the plastic bag on its migration to its home, the Pacific Ocean.

Once released into the wild, the plastic bag is unsure of itself. It falters at first, but soon with some help from the wind, the bag will be airborne. This flight will be the first in its long journey towards its final destination: The garbage patch in the heart of the Pacific Ocean. Using the wind to guide it, the plastic bag moves across the city through the air.

A City Park. This Park may at first seem an idyllic place for the plastic bag, but danger lurks round every corner. Here it will encounter many enemies, including one of the most dangerous: Park Services. Poor little fellow looks like his journey ends here.

Meanwhile, our little bag has encountered one of nature’s most deadly killers: The Teacup Yorkie. Once the Yorkie has locked onto its victim, there’s very little hope of survival. But using its superior size and deft manoeuvring, our bag manages to escape the Yorkie’s talons and flee for its life.

Over the course of its miraculous migration, the plastic bag will cover vast distances through neighbourhoods, across parks and down city streets. It is now nightfall, and our highly advanced night-vision cameras have managed to capture for the first time in history a plastic bag in pitch black. Phenomenal!

The vast cement rivers in California, home to literally dozens of animals. Many plastic bags will not make it out of here, the reeds and branches will see to that.

As at home in water as it is on land, or in the air, the bag’s natural buoyancy makes it an excellent swimmer. It’s close now, and it can feel it. At last the bag has reached the gateway to the open sea. Careful to avoid the mouths of hungry sea-life that feed on the helpless plastic, the bag will travel hundreds of miles to join the thriving community of plastic known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The Garbage Patch is a veritable plastic oasis, where millions of tons of plastic garbage remain trapped by the currents. It is said to be twice the size of Texas. Never actually biodegrading, here the plastic bag can live indefinitely, peacefully co-existing with billions of other Petroleum Species before breaking into ever-tinier plastic pieces, thus completing the plastic cycle of life.

12 Years Old - Kim Stockwood



Uno de los errores más frecuentes
de quienes apenas comienzan con el Inglés
es traducir siempre literalmente
las frases desde el Español.

Por ejemplo al hablar de la edad.

En Español decimos:

Tengo 'tantos' años...

Sin embargo en el Inglés no es así.

En el Inglés la edad NO se tiene.

NO debemos decir: I Have 38 years .




En el Inglés se ES*
de ciertos años
de existencia o antiguedad (old)


*Verbo To Be:

I am
You are
He is
She is
It is
We are
You are
They are


Por ejemplo,
Yo soy de 38 años de existencia...
I
am 38 years old.



No importa cuantos años tengas
el enamoramiento te hará sentir joven de nuevo.
Pero debes tener cuidado,
pues te puedes encaprichar... O si la cosa no funciona
quizás llores como niño...






I just can't stand the way I feel
I just can't wait until tomorrow comes
So if you can see my face again
You'll have to be the one to let me know


'Cause I feel like I'm 12 years old
And I feel like I'm in the cold
And I feel like I'm 12 years old
And My dog just died
and my bike's been stolen again


How could it be that you're so vain?
And how can it be that I'm such a pain? Or some say....

Why can't you see this time you've gone too far?
Today I couldn't careless where you are


'Cause I feel like I'm 12 years old
And I feel like I'm in the cold
And I feel like I don't know where I am... No, no...

And I feel like I'm left behind
and I feel like I'm last in line
And I feel like I'm 12 years old
And My dog just died
and my bike's been stolen


It seems that you and I
Feelin' like a little child
Then the cleaver goes away
So maybe I should play... Okay!


La, la, la, la... la
La, la, la, la... la
La, la, la, la... la, la... la, la, la
x2


And I feel like I'm 12 years old
And I feel like I'm in the cold
And I feel like I'm 12 years old
And my dog just died
My bike's been stold
I missed my ball
And I dropped my ice cream again....


La, la, la, la... la
La, la, la, la... la
La, la, la, la... la, la... la, la, la
x2


Feels like I'm 12 years old
Feels like I'm in the cold
Feels like I'm 12 years old
Feels like I'm all alone

Dear, we have a problem
Houston, we have no Internet


*Palabras nuevas

Te recomiendo que las escribas adicionándole otras 2
que tenga similar ortografía y pronunciación. Ejemplo:

House, Mouse, Blouse

Para ello te servirá mucho este enlace:

All In - The Grouch & Eligh



Estos chicos se la juegan toda... Todo o nada...






To me it seems you’ve lost your steam
Your steam it seems you’ve lost it (lost it)

Demons haunt your thinking, freedom gone
And all exhausted (exhausted)

Dreaming dreams of fortune, all your deeds
Are impromptu and not in sync with laws

And warnings never heeded while you block them
marching forth
and choosing what to keep and what to leave

Consistently you’re falling
all or nothing
Please I’ll tweak it out, I think I’m on to something

Now you’re beat to pieces and the pieces and the parts are busted
All your greatest thinking got you sinking in the rotten gutter

Now it’s nothing left, but everything to gain
No options, so you walk the narrow steps to the domains
That have been calling soldier

All of the resistance kept you out from what is within
If you follow it, it rises from inside ya up and over, ALL IN!


Spent half my life on a search for nothing
I came up with something, It’s on again!

I found myself by the river and jumped in!
It’s all or nothing, gotta be all in

/Be all in, gotta be all in,
Be all in, Yeah it’s all or nothing!/

(Repeat)


To make me feel right, give me wealth and real life
And then mix it together like popcorn and butter right

Order the Tapatio, sit and I talk to Rio
Listening to music like that old Innercity Griots

Pretty females all in my life
Yup, that’s how it had to be so now I call one my wife

Give me my order organic, I need my border Hispanic
I mean I love it in Cali, But out in Maui it’s woww-wee, so...

somebody get me a ticket, No need for packing a biscuit
I want more laughing and giggling

Need more passion and wisdom
Give some and take some, I don’t want no fake ones
If I need new friends then I’ll make some


(Chorus)


Put your hands up high when I step on stage
God to my side microphone on blaze

Wanna be on point, brand new white shoes
Need to be in the cut, cause I paid my dues

Need to hear good news, when I make moves
Need to make music if I wanna eat food

Need to make a meeting if I wanna stay clean
Don’t wanna be a dope fiend, Keeping that beam up

On the back of my neck, when I trek
with a team on the road that be acting a wreck
Need a book full of...

Out of Control - Oingo Boingo




Everyone says: Sooner or later you'll reach the end... of the line
When things get rough some think it's easy to jump the ship... you decide

I say:
Don't throw it away
There's about a million reasons why
Though you've heard them all before
And you're getting very tired
Lay your head on my lap and I'll sing you this lullaby


Don't you know, yeah...
that everyone around you

Has felt the pain you feel today

You're out of control, yeah...
And you want someone to tell you
When you wake up in the morning
It'll only be a dream

You're out of control
x4


There's a cloud... rolling overhead
and it seems to rain on no one else
There's a black sun casting a black shadow
I know you feel so all alone

You're out of control and you want the world to love you
Or, or maybe you just want a chance
to let them know that you live and breathe and suffer
And your back is in the corner and you've got nowhere to go


Nothing for nothing, everything's right at your fingertips... for a price
Who ever said that life on this planet would ever be a... paradise

I say:
Don't throw it away
you've got too many things to say
If you throw your life
/If you throw away your life/
the world will never be the same


CHORUS


Don't you know that everyone around you
Has felt the pain you feel today
You're out of control, yeah, yeah... y...
It'll only be a dream

You're out of control and you move without direction
And people look right through your soul
You're out of control and you want someone to tell you
When you wake up in the morning it'll only be a dream

And I wish that I could tell you:
It'll only be a dream

Legacy - Ed Goggin



De la Banda Sonora, de la 100% recomendada Película:




If I had a Legacy
There’s something I’d like for it to be
If I was a Billionaire
I'll give it all to charity

But if I had a heart of gold
Will never ___ fear
I hold on to my dreams
I have a Legacy


If I had a legacy
There’s something I’d like for it to be
I’d give every living soul
A piece of the gift you gave to me

Shadows are far too hard to climb
You taught me to step into the light
If I could help someone like me
This would be my legacy


Dreams are the sail that moves the soul
To be much more than we will ever know


If you had a Legacy
What would you like for it to be
What will your loved ones say
How will you help them find their way

What are the gifts you’ll leave behind
the treasures that they'll find
It’s right inside your dreams
It’s your Legacy


/It’s your Legacy/
My legacy
It’s my Legacy
/This will be my Legacy/

/It’s our Legacy/

Now it’s right inside your dreams
and a gift you gave to me
And it's right inside your dreams
It's a gift you gave to me

Legacy

And it's right inside your dreams
/It's a gift you gave to me/

/It's your Legacy/
It's your...

A gift you gave to me
/It's your Legacy/

I Want You to be my Baby - Lillian Briggs




I
I want
I want you
I want you to
I want you to be

(What?)

I want you to be my baby!


Will
Will you
Now,
Will you please
Will you please tell
Will you please tell me

(What?)

If you're going to be my baby


Listen to your mama
And you never will forget it
And if anybody wonders
You can tell them that I said it

The only thing I know is
That I never can forget you
I've been longing for you, baby
Ever since the day I met you

I got you where I want you
I'm never gonna let you
Get away from me

Do what I tell you
I'm the girl for you and so
You'd better start to face it
If you ever lose my love
You know you never can replace it

I think it's time for you to
Start to give me some loving
Carrying a torch for you
That's hotter than an oven

It's time for you to give me
A little bit of loving, baby
Hold me tight and do
What I tell you


(Chorus)


Will
Will you
Will you please
Will you please tell
Will you please tell me

(What?)

If you're going to be my baby


(Chorus)


Come on, baby
And hold me tight
Come on, baby
Let's dim the lights
And tell me you'll be mine

Wet Paint - How Now Brown & the Moo Wave




1... 2...
1... 2... 3... 4!

Take your brush and gently dip it
Be careful not to drip it
Wet paint

(Wet paint, wet paint)

Wet your roller then you roll it
Calmly cooly you control it
Wet paint
( wet paint, wet paint)

Red and green and yellow too
Purple pink and baby blue
Wet paint
( wet paint, wet paint )


You pour it in a bucket
You mush it all around
You take a mop and mop it
Oh you slather it and slop it
But be careful not to drop it
On the cold cold ground


Wet paint, wet paint
Wet paint, wet paint

Drippy, lumpy, gushy, gloppy
Smeary, smelly, slippy, sloppy
Wet paint
( wet paint, wet paint )


Squishy, squashy, muddy, mushy
Sticky, slimy, slurpy, slushy
Wet paint
( wet paint, wet paint )

Smear it, roll it, throw it, brush it
Squish it, splash it, crunch and crush it
Wet paint
( wet paint, wet paint )


(Chorus)


(Wet paint, wet paint)
You know I'm crazy about wet paint

( Wet paint, wet paint )
Can't get enough of wet paint

( wet paint, wet paint )
Oh, you gotta ___ someone else with paint

( Wet paint, wet paint )
Let me have it, let me have it

( Wet paint, wet paint )
Hit me with some paint, now

( Wet paint, wet paint )
I got to have wet paint

(Wet paint, wet paint )
You got to give me some wet paint...
