Onni on

REFRAIN (Sanna)
Ja vaik elämä silloin tällöin kolhii
Niin se on ainoo tapa oppii
et osaa erottaa sen ikä on tärkeet
ja missei oo mitään järkee
 
Paljon kiinni siitä miten maailmaan näät
ja tiedätkö mistä tykkäät
ja huomaat kattoo mihin oikein meet
niin paljon on kiinni siitä mitä teet
 
[Janne]
Ammatinvalintakysymys
mitä teet, mitä et,
mihin meet, mihin ryhdyt
ja mihin et
 
No kiire riivaa
kännykkä koko ajan piippaa
yhtä varmasti kun zirra
sanoo piipaa
 
Moderni elämää,
kaikki levällään
vaikee hengittää,
ei jaksa liikuttaa eviään
 
Ku olemienen helppoo
meneminen easyy
Hei pliis siis, (?)
niinku miten niin?
 
No kiinnostaa oma napa
näytinks hyvält,
olinks silloin ja silloin
jotenkin dorka
 
Vaik oisin ollu oikeest
kukaan huomaa mitää miettii itteään,
jos miettis mitä muut miettii,
ei ehtis miettii muuta varmaan itekään
 
Monta kertaa sanottu et ei must mitään tuu
No näyttäny niille itekseni fikkuu
vaik sitä pitää käydä pohjamudissa tonkimassa
silloin niinku onnea onkii
 
REFRAIN
 
Nuorena sitä nauttii
Ku kerkee riehuu ja leikkii
Ei oo viileet eikä feikkii
Joku menee mäsäks, käyttää purkkateippii
 
Monet ei enää vanhempana ymmärrä huumoria
Ainakin siltä näyttää vaikkei oliskaan niin
Ja vaikka tietääk miten mikäkin toimii
Osuu elämänsä kanssa easysti ohi-sektoriin
 
No haloo, herätys pahvi
Oma elämä on tärkeämpi ku jotai pakollinen aamukahvi
Loppujen lopuks miten se onkaan
miten sanotaan, aluks(?) ainakin huono valinta
 
lyhyt harkintatapa, jota munkin pitäis
tarkistaa ettei jumiudu vaan tuuttaamaan,
tönimään jonoissa, leikkaa huonoissa oloissa
hepoilemassa ?
 
Aika relailla, kelailla, pelailla
Leikkis peleillä,
pysy väkisin hereillä
ilman kahta pannuu kahvii
 
Nykyihminen taitaa tarvii pari koodii
et ehtii, no kaiken sen minkä meinaa
ku pyörittelee ja veivaa
Joutuu viikonloput sekoilee ja reivaa
 
Ja niinku ihmisen elämäs riittää kulmia
loputun määrä kuvakulmia
EI auta tutista kuumia (?)
koittaa vaan taklata ja tajuta
ettei kaikkii oo sattumaa
 
REFRAIN (3x)
 
(Sanna: ilman taukoo)
(Sanna: laughing)
(Janne: otetaaks toi nauru)

Happiness is

REFRAIN (Sanna)
And even though life is hard sometimes
It's the only way to learn
so that you can tell what's important
and what's senseless
 
A lot depends on how you look at the world
and whether you know what you like
and pay attention to where you're going
so much depends on what you do
 
[Janne]
Matter of choice of a career
what you do, what you don't
where you go, what you strike up
and what you don't
 
Well, hurry is bothersome
mobile phone is beeping all the time
as surely as zirra (?)
says 'beep beep'
 
Modern life,
everything's outspread
it's hard to breathe,
too tired to move a muscle
 
When living is easy
going is easy
Hey please, (?)
like, what?
 
Well, interested in yourself
did I look good,
were I somehow an idiot
then and then
 
Even if I were for real
no one notices anything, thinking about themselves,
if you thought about what others think,
you wouldn't probably have the time to think about anything else yourself either
 
I've been told many times that I'm no good
Well, I've given them the finger (?)
even though you have to dig into bottom mud
then you're like fishing for happiness
 
REFRAIN
 
When you're young you enjoy
because you have time to run wild and play
It's not cool or fake
If something is broken, you use chewing gum tape (?)
 
Many people lose they sense of humour as they grow up
At least it seems so even though this wasn't the case
And even though you know how things work
You may easily go separate ways with your life
 
Hello, wake up you dummy
Your own life is more important than some compulsory morning coffee
In the end, how was it
how do you say it, at first (?) at least a bad choice
 
Short way of consideration that I should also
check so that I wouldn't get stuck tooting,
pushing in queues, cutting in poor conditions
horsing around (?)
 
Time to relax, ponder, play
Would play games,
stay awake involuntarily
without two pots of coffee
 
Modern man seems to need a couple of codes
so that he has the time to do, well, everything he's meaning to do
when he's spinning and grinding
He has to fool around and rave on weekends
 
There are corners in a man's life
an endless amount of angles of view
No point in trembling (?)
just trying to tackle and realise
that not everything is a coincidence
 
REFRAIN (3x)
 
(Sanna: without a break)
(Sanna: laughing)
(Janne: Shall we take that laughter)
 
REFRAIN

Author's comments:

Okay, this one's a pretty crappy translation. I didn't even feel like reading through it because the original lyrics were so shoddy (no offence to the artist) and there were also several question marks (some words missing?). I hope someone gets something out of it though.

Yeah I would say that rap (rap-soul hybrid in this case) is not the easiest genre to translate and thanks for your efforts :p And tried to listen for the original track but couldn't figure out what were the missing words indicated with question marks

I agree whole-heartedly! Geez, I'm not even familiar with the slang words used in the Helsinki area so maybe I should leave these rap songs to someone else x) I didn't even listen to this song before translating it, hah.

Oh god no, I already gave it a quick glance yesterday and realised I don't understand half of it Teeth smile I stick to my northern Finland dialect!
