You can’t get it right ’til you get it right!

11 May

I translated the German lyrics to The Beatles song Sie Liebt Dich today, because I need to point out that their meaning is entirely different than the Beatles’ English version of the lyrics (which follow at the end, in the colour purple):

 

Sie liebt dich, yeah, yeah, yeah

Sie liebt dich, yeah, yeah, yeah

Sie liebt dich, yeah, yeah, yeah

 

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah

 

Du glaubst sie liebt nur mich

Gestern hatt ich sie gesehen

Sie denkt ja nur an dich

Und du solltest zu irh gehen

Oh, ja sie liebt dich

Schöner kann es garnicht sein

Ja, sie liebt dich

Und da solltest du dich freuen

 

You believe she loves only me?

Yesterday I saw her

She thinks only about you

And you should go to her

Oh, yes she loves you

Nicer it can never be

Yeah, she loves you

And you should be happy about it

 

Du hast ihr weh getan

Sie wußte nicht warum

Du warst nicht schuld daran

Und drehtest dich nicht um

Oh, ja sie liebt dich

Schöner kann es garnicht sein

Ja, sie liebt dich

Und da solltest du dich freuen

 

You hurt her

She didn’t know why

You weren’t the one to blame

And don’t spin around over it

Oh, yes she loves you

Nicer it can never be

Yes, she loves you

And you should be happy about it

 

Sie liebt dich, yeah, yeah, yeah

Sie liebt dich, yeah, yeah, yeah

Denn mit dir allein

Kann sie nur glücklich sein

 

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah

Then with you alone

Can she only be happy

 

Denn mit dir allein

Kann sie nur glücklich sein

 

Then with you alone

Can she only be happy

 

Denn mit dir allein

Kann sie nur glücklich sein

 

Then with you alone

Can she only be happy

 

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah !!!

 

 

 

You think you lost your love
When I saw her yesterday
It’s you she’s thinking of
And she told me what to say
She says she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad

She said you hurt her so
She almost lost her mind
And now she says she knows
You’re not the hurting kind
She says she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad, ooh

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
And with a love like that
You know you should be glad

You know it’s up to you
I think it’s only fair
Pride can hurt you too
Apologize to her
Because she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad, ooh

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
With a love like that
You know you should be glad
With a love like that
You know you should be glad
With a love like that
You know you should be glad
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

 

 You see what I’m getting at here? There’s always 2 sides to a story & 2 sides to a coin, so that other side of me always tries to look at both sides now (when I’m not busy listening to B-sides & petting B-hinds)
