Testo della canzone: What's up

Inglese

What's up

25 years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination.
I realised quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this
Brotherhood of man
For whatever that means

And so I cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed
Just to get it all out, what's in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning and I step
Outside and I take deep breath
And I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What's goin' on?

And I sing hey-yeah-yea-eah, eah hey yea yea
I said hey! what's goin' on
And I sing hey-yeah-yea-eah, eah hey yea yea
I said hey! what's goin' on

Oooh, oo! ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo
Oo-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoooo
Oooh! ooo-aah-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo
Oo-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoooo

And I try, oh my God do I try
I try all the time
In this institution
And I pray, oh my God do I pray
I pray every single day
For a revolution

And so I cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed
Just to get it all out what's in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning and I step
Outside and I take deep breath
And I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What's goin' on

And I sing hey-yeah-yea-eah, eah hey yea yea
I said hey! what's goin' on
And I sing hey-yeah-yea-eah, eah hey yea yea
I said hey! what's goin' on

And I sing hey-yeah-yea-eah, eah hey yea yea
I said hey! what's goin' on
And I sing hey-yeah-yea-eah, eah hey yea yea
I said hey! what's goin' on
Oooh, oo! ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo
Oo-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoooo-ahh-haa

25 years and my life is still
trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
Oo-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoooo

I love this song.

I list these lyric in one TED topic.
For me, now I feel ok and feel comfortable for my gender as a woman. Just like one song called What's Up by 4 Non Blondes. Sometimes I still feel a little peculiar.

My life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination.
Although the world was made for this
Brotherhood of man,
We are as women, we are still trying, striving, seeking, finding, and not yielding.

What's more? Hope. Hope.
Hold fast to your dreams as a girl, a woman.
