How about a bit of Madonna! #1 (permalink) Sat Mar 24, 2012 6:01 am   How about a bit of Madonna!
 

I love some of Madonna songs and lyrics.

I love bouncy, gliding La isla Bonita a lot. I love Spanish Flamenco Dance a lot.

Here for you La Isla Bonita....

"La Isla Bonita"

[Spoken:]

Como puede ser verdad
[or Como puede ese olvidar]
How could it be true?

Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
Just like I'd never gone, I knew the song
A young girl with eyes like the desert
It all seems like yesterday, not far away

[Chorus:]

Tropical the island breeze
All of nature wild and free
This is where I long to be
La isla bonita
And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby

The beautiful island

I fell in love with San Pedro
Warm wind carried on the sea, he called to me
Te dijo te amo
I prayed that the days would last
They went so fast

He told you, "I love you"

[chorus]

I want to be where the sun warms the sky
When it's time for siesta you can watch them go by
Beautiful faces, no cares in this world
Where a girl loves a boy, and a boy loves a girl

Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
It all seems like yesterday, not far away

[chorus twice]

La la la la la la la
Te dijo te amo
La la la la la la la
El dijo que te ama

He told you, "I love you"

He said he loves you

kind regards.

Hello Mr. Kyaw,

I like listening to her songs. I don't know them but when I hear I like them. And I like to see the phenomenon, the style how she sings. She seems to me a very kind person and authentic. This is my impression about her.

Regards:
Kati Svaby

Yes, my lady.

What you said, She seems to me a very kind person and authentic, is precise. That's why I posted this song. But it is so subtle to know that she's kind and authentic, you know, coz you're a Libran. A Venus person.

Please give my best wishes to your husband.

kind regards.

Nice to hear your kind and authentic voice as well, it's rare to hear these days. People even tend to forget to have a little kindness in their lives.

Hello Mr Kyaw,

We agree with each other on Madona's kindness. I will listen to this song what you sent.
Now I decided not to be ashamed and I read out my texts. Of course I know my mistakes but practice makes perfect -doesn't it.

I say to my husband your best wishes. He is very well today. The countryside makes him happy. He likes the garden and the Danube.

Best regards:
Kati svaby

How about a bit of Madonna! #7 (permalink) Sun Mar 25, 2012 5:26 am   How about a bit of Madonna!
 

For my dear lady,

****Papa Don't Preach ( Madonna)

Papa I know you're going to be upset
'Cause I was always your little girl
But you should know by now
I'm not a baby

You always taught me right from wrong
I need your help, daddy please be strong
I may be young at heart
But I know what I'm saying

The one you warned me all about
The one you said I could do without
We're in an awful mess, and I don't mean maybe - please

Chorus:

Papa don't preach, I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach, I've been losing sleep
But I made up my mind, I'm keeping my baby, oh
I'm gonna keep my baby, mmm...

He says that he's going to marry me
We can raise a little family
Maybe we'll be all right
It's a sacrifice

But my friends keep telling me to give it up
Saying I'm too young, I ought to live it up
What I need right now is some good advice, please

(chorus)

Daddy, daddy if you could only see
Just how good he's been treating me
You'd give us your blessing right now
'Cause we are in love, we are in love, so please

(chorus)

Papa don't preach, I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach, I've been losing sleep
(repeat)

Oh, I'm gonna keep my baby, ooh
Don't you stop loving me daddy
I know, I'm keeping my baby

I hope you like it.

kind regards.

Hello Mr. Kyaw,

Many thanks for the lyrics. It is very interesting. I am a granny, and with Kytos I corresponded about the grannies. And this morning - during I was preparing the breakfast - I thought of my granny and one thing what I got to know recently.

One of my grandchildren had to write about his ancestors. So my sister told me that she has a tape where my mother had told everything what she knew. And on this tape is that my grandmother learnt in an Austrian boarding school because her mother died when she used to be six year-old.

And I told Kytos she was in Austria only for one year. I got to know that she was in this boarding school for 10 years. She was 16 year-old when she came back to Hungary.

And when she had been dying she said the Lord's prayer "Our father which art in heaven" -in German.

I wanted to correct this, what it had been written wrongly by me.

Madona speak in this song to his father. I speak to my father every day, because he used to preach me for everything; for example he detested that I used to sing always: Que sera,sera.

Regards:
Kati Svaby

Hello Kati,

Do you mean the button marked 'record' isn't showing by that message for you?

Can you see a 'delete recording' button like this instead?

If you can, then clicking that will delete the sound file you have made and give you back the 'record' button so that you can correct your original.

Dear Bez,

When I finished my record I didn't see any more either red mic, -it is okay -but I didn't see the "deleted record" either only I saw a single "edit" button.

So if I wanted to repeat a record, because I want to correct something I need the " deleted record" button.

But I have only a single "edit" button.

My request would be that I decided to read out my every letter. Till now it went without saying when I opened my laptop, I saw always the red mic near the letters what I didn't dare to record.

After recording the " delete recording" button could be seen for a few days. But now it disappeared at once.

I hope you understand what I wanted to explain.

Regards:
Kati Svaby

The red mic was always there at the letters what I hadn't read out.

I can delete the original recording for you, but I don't know whether or not the mic button would appear and allow you to record your message again or not, I'm sorry.

Hello Bez,

No problem. The text and the record isn't the same. I fear for not having mic if you deleted it.

Do you think that henceforth the red mic won't appear at those letters that I didn't record?

I am grateful to you.

Best regards:

kati

Hello Mr.Kyaw

Allegedly this is her last song about what it is written there will be a great hit-song.

Girl Gone Wild Ė Madonna LYRICS:

Itís so hypnotic
The way he pulls on me
Itís like the force of gravity
Right up under my feet
Itís so erotic
This feeling canít be beat
Itís coursing through my whole body
Feel the heat
I got that burniní hot desi-i-i-re
And no one can put out my fi-i-i-re
Itís coming right down through the wi-i-i-re
Here it comes
When I hear them 808 drums
Itís got me singing
Hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
Iím like, hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
Girls they just wanna have some fun
Get fired up like smokiní gun
On the floor til the daylight comes
Girls they just wanna have some fun
A girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
Iím like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
The room is spinning
It must be the tanqueray
Iím about to go astray
My inhibitionís gone away
I feel like sinning
You got me in the zone
DJ play my favorite song
Turn me on
I got that burniní hot desi-i-i-re
And no one can put out my fi-i-i-re
Itís coming right down through the wi-i-i-re
Here it comes
When I hear them 808 drums
Itís got me singing
Hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
Iím like, hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
Girls they just wanna have some fun
Get fired up like smokiní gun
On the floor til the daylight comes
Girls they just wanna have some fun
I know, I know, I know
I shouldnít act this way
I know, I know, I know
Good girls donít misbehave
Misbehave
But iím a bad girl, anyway
Forgive me
Hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
Iím like, hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
Girls they just wanna have some fun
Get fired up like smokiní gun
On the floor til the daylight comes
Girls they just wanna have some fun
A girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
Iím like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
