Great! Thank you very much! 😱

annabellannaannabellanna    Fri, 06/09/2019 - 11:38

A brand new entry for you!
https://lyricstranslate.com/it/caterina-bueno-ninna-nanna-l-mio-ciocione...

Most lullabies are horrifiyng, because the lives of the woman, particularly the ones of the mothers were often horrifiyng. In solitude, with their babies that couldn't understand (and that didn't let them sleep) they could express their worst feelings...
Once I thought about collect lullabies from everywhere and make a show on this matter.

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Fri, 06/09/2019 - 11:45

Thank you. I hope, someone will translate it into English! 😱

LobolyrixLobolyrix    Sat, 07/09/2019 - 11:01

Perhaps meanwhile the attempt of a German translation is enough for you? Regular smile

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sat, 07/09/2019 - 11:11

Wonderful, I 've just seen it. Thank you for translating it! Regular smile

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Fri, 06/09/2019 - 11:51

Extremly horrifying! Thank you Lizzzard! 😨

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Fri, 06/09/2019 - 12:15

Terrifying! It fits! Thank you! 👹

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Fri, 06/09/2019 - 16:46

I hardly dared to open the links... 😲
Thank you very much, silenced, I put in your first one.
(And for the first time I am happy not to understand any French....)

silencedsilenced    Fri, 06/09/2019 - 17:29

Nursery rhymes are akin to fairy tales. If Mr. Bettelheim is to be trusted, the rules they abide by have a total disregard for political correctness Regular smile

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Fri, 06/09/2019 - 17:38

Oh yes, there are very different rules in the deep sea of the soul than on the surface...

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sat, 07/09/2019 - 09:38

Zarina, thank you very much, it is a beautiful song! And it doesn't matter that it is not a typical lullaby, but it should be about a child's fear, as for example the fear of monsters, wild animals, shadows, darkness and so on. - In this case is not so obvious, but I can feel the fear of abandonment, so I put it in! 🌛

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sat, 07/09/2019 - 15:58

Thanks so much, Emilia, you are no. 17 here... 🙀

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sun, 08/09/2019 - 16:56

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sun, 08/09/2019 - 17:16

Thank you, Eugene, for all these really "unpleasant" suggestions. I will try to translate them, but I am not sure, whether I will enjoy it... I am so scared! 👻 - I wonder why there are so much in Russian?

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Mon, 16/09/2019 - 07:47

Thank you again, Ivan. Regular smile As I couldn't find the lyrics, let's wait, till someone put in the text...

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Mon, 16/09/2019 - 16:55

Ok, let's check: it is a lullaby and it's about howling ghosts and haunted graves. Yes - it definitely meets the requirements! 👻 - Thank you, silenced!

silencedsilenced    Mon, 16/09/2019 - 17:02

Also one of the most beautiful songs of the Pogues', if I may add.
It screams for a good German translation [wink, wink]

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Mon, 16/09/2019 - 17:22

Yes, a beautiful song! And I have heard the scream...

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Thu, 19/09/2019 - 11:15

Unbelievable!! 😱 Thank you Ivan, thank you so much for all your suggestions! 👍 Please give me some time to read it! 🕚

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Wed, 16/10/2019 - 08:44

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Wed, 30/10/2019 - 13:56

Yes, Achamp, I found this song, because I saw on "Friends Feed" that you have put in a German translation. Well done and thank you for it! 👍

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Wed, 30/10/2019 - 18:05

Cruel! Thank you very much!

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Thu, 07/11/2019 - 11:51

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Wed, 13/11/2019 - 12:25

Thank you, Ivan! I really hope, someone will translate this song into English!

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Wed, 13/11/2019 - 12:28

Another perfect item for this collection, thank you so much!

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Wed, 13/11/2019 - 12:32

Another style, but also perfect. Without your permanent contribution this collection would be only half as good! 👍

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Wed, 13/11/2019 - 12:36

Dear Ivan, you are incredible, do you know that? - You suggested all in all 22 (!) great songs for my collection, so with your enormous help and the help of all my other friends here it has become a very popular and successful one. Therefore LT gave me a badge now, but in fact it is yours, because you have done the biggest part of the work. Thank you, Ivan! Thanks a lot! And of course thanks to all of you, who have helped me so kindly. It has become a collection of joy, not of horror.

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Tue, 03/03/2020 - 21:47

You are so right, Priscilla! Thank you! You joined LT in January? - So, nice to meet you and have a lot of fun here! 😃
