Peltirumpu (إلى الإنكليزية ترجم)

Tin drum

Walls of the children's room are yellow
The sun is yellow too,so it's told
Ohh if (I) could see it sometime
 
The child begged:"Mom,take out of the box
That beautiful toy",out of the closet after one play
Got only a graveyard place
 
refrain:
You are a lonely tin drum
In the closet of a children's room
You turned on the robot
It started to walk,you will always stay here
Lonely tin drum
In the closet of a children's room
You turned on the robot
It started to walk,you will always stay here
 
You have gotten tired to the smell of a wintry death
And you put the teddy bear curtains into fire
Finally you have had the chance to see the sun
 
The child begged:"mom buy it",you look at the closet:
The child is burning,you won't revenge right,
But the tin drum will never set on fire
 
refrain

Hmm, wouldn't "peltirumpu" be more like "tin drum"?

Humm, I have always had the impression that "peltirumpu"(in this song) meant this very primitive,kettle like thing made of plate. But now that I have made little investigation , it seems more probable that it means colorful little children's thing. Especially since the child thought it was beautiful...But you are right, maybe I should change it. It's just that in Finnish tin and plate mean different things,so if someone said "tinarumpu" I assume people would have the wrong impression about it
