Foge Foge Bandido - Fartos do que não tens (English translation)

Portuguese

Fartos do que não tens

Sabes lá quanto tempo demora
Sem fazer não tens tempo de sobra
Estamos fartos de ver o que tu não tens
Diz-me então do que estás tu à espera
Para apagar o que o ontem não era
Estamos fartos de ver o que tu não tens
 
Eu queria não escrever
Não fazer
Não construir
Trabalhar na função pública e dizer mal do governo
Lá lá lá ninguém sabe o que eu sinto

Tired of seeing what you don't have

Who will know how much time you take
without doing (anything), you don't have plenty of time
We are tired of seeing what you don't have
So, tell me what are you waiting for?
To erase what did not happen yesterday
We are tired of seeing what you don't have
 
I would like not to write
Not to do
Not to build
To work as an Official and speak ill of the Government
lalala nobody knows what I feel

Oh well, I am used to all these nonsense sentences and contexts, it was the best I managed to do. It seems like the singer did not want to ease our pain to understand, hahaha

I suspect, deep down inside the author knew that there would be some masochists trying to translate those wondrous lyrics. :bigsmile:

>To erase what has not happened yesterday
With "yesterday", Past Simple is used: "To erase what did not happen yesterday."

I think the sentence that sums up what you have just said is: "lalala nobody knows what I feel", hahaha.
