Titica - Olha o Boneco (English translation)

Portuguese

Olha o Boneco

Oh mes amis, je suis a Titica
le nouvelle étoilé de kuduro angolais
Ekibude nakibude, on s'en fous!
 
Ya... one love! Só verem...
 
Do país para o universo, respeite só mais esse verso
Titica tá no building tipo Michael Jackson no thriller
Não admirem mamoites, essa é pra rebentar com as noites
Podem trancar vossos papoites
Esta dama vai causar mortes
Não ligo à discriminação, sigam a globalização
Outrora fui bailarina, agora sou a menina
Que tá a causar pânico na mguimbi
Eu sou da Bwe'd Beats, tu és da onde sua wi?
Ary, bora!
 
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Xé que toma, ê que toma
Xé que toma, ê que toma
 
Espero que gostem do álbum e sei que a cena deu bum
Ainda por cima com Ary, não contavas né sua gwi!
Matei a cobra e mostrei-lhe o pau
Sei que tens raiva e é normal
Minha comadre a vida é assim
Tudo que tem princípio tem um fim
Olha o beat, xé prakatá wa
Sai do caminho ou vou te matar
Um kiss pour qui é panina
Sou mais fofa que a tua garina!
Pernas cheias de vitamina
Aguentem só a adrenalina!
 
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Xé que toma, ê que toma
 
Ary
Venho de forma diferente e quem quiser que comente
Bem ou mal, é de mim que vocês falam assim
Admite só que tás a gostar
Ary e Titica tão a te dar
Não vale a pena só se achar
Essa mambo não é de se coçar
Chouriço, atiço, não queremos compromisso
Não me vês, já sou Lady Gaga!
Agora tás a ga-ga a ga a ga a ga a gaguejar
A ga a ga a gaguejar, xé eh!
 
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Xé que toma, ê que toma
 
Ha ha, é pra saberem!
Ticni aguenta tudo, não tem medo de nada
Vocês já sabem
Vereis com a própria fé!
 
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Xé que tomas, ê que toma
Xé que tomas, ê que toma

Olha o Boneco

My people, I'm Titica
The new star of Angola's Kuduro
Ekibude nakibude, on s'en fous!
 
Yep... one love! You'll see it
 
From Angola to the Universe, respect this new verse
Titica is in the building like Michael Jackson in Thriller
Don't look so surprised ladies, this one here will rock the clubs
Lock your husbands in the house
This lady will cause some damage!
I don't mind the prejudice, follow globalization
Once I was a dancer, now I'm that girl
who is causing panic at the village
I'm signed with Bwe'd Beats, what's your label bi-?
Let's go, Ary!
 
"Olha o boneco, olha a boneca1
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Xé que toma, ê que toma
Xé que toma, ê que toma"
 
I hope you liked my album and I know this track is a hit
Even more so with Ary, I bet you weren't ready for this!
I came to the scene and showed what I'm made of
You're angry at me and I get it, that's normal
That's what life's all about, sista
Eveything that starts must come to an end
So move to the beat, "xé prakata wa"!
Get out of my way before I kill ya
I wanna send a kiss to all my queers
I'm the cutest, your girl has nothing on me!
My legs are full of vitamine
Just take all this adrenaline!
 
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Xé que toma, ê que toma
 
Ary
I came with a different approach, if you wanna gossip go ahead
Good or bad, I don't care; at least ya'll talking about me
Just admit it that you like it
Ary and Titica are smashing you
There's no point in boasting and bragging
This one is not to be taken for granted
Choriço, artiço, we're not looking for commitment
Can't you see, I'm so Lady Gaga
And now you're stu-stu-stu-stuttering2
You're stuttering!
 
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Xé que toma, ê que toma
 
Lol, now ya'll know what I'm about
Ticny ain't afraid of nothing, I can take anything
You already know!
You shall behold with your own faith!
 
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Olha o boneco, olha a boneca
Xé que toma, ê que toma
Xé que toma, ê que toma
 
  • 1. The chorus was probably written as a reference to Titica's sexuality, since she became famous in the beggining of her career as the transgender singer who had taken Angola by storm in a country where homossexuality is still held as a delicate matter, like in many other African countries. In Kuduro, the music genre born in Angola, lyrics are often planned to match a dance coreography and sometimes the words are only written for the sake of fun and to please the public, with no deeper meaning to take under account. This seems to be the case here. "Boneco" in Portuguese is the word used for male-figured toys that boys like to play with, such as action figures. It is the male version of a "boneca", or doll.
  • 2. here there's a play on words with the name of the singer and the word in Portuguese for "stutterer", which is also "gaga".
