Dutch Translation Help
« on: June 26, 2006, 04:07:13 AM »

Hi all!


I've recently tried to translate my song "Whatta you done to Elvis, Dr Nick?" into Dutch.

It's a special for a DJ in Holland.  I'd love to get some feedback on the song--if it's not murdering the Dutch language.  Let me know if you'd be willing to listen and give me some pointers.  I'm trying to soften that German g.  

Anyhow, if you're interested I can email the song in dutch in mp3 as well as the English lyrics.

Thanks,

LP

Nice pic, PC.

Actually, BiscuitPower was nice enough to help me come to my senses and desist from the insanity of my Dutch translation effort.

He said he could only make out one or two words in the whole song.   My music buddy Tommy had a big laugh at that.  

Maybe I'll try Latin next.

Ha! I would love to see your translation.

No, Gort, No!

I'm almost ashamed to let anybody hear the Dutch version, but maybe the English version with pseudo Dutch text.

when my brother chuck was about 6 years old...they sang a french song in school one day,at some point in the song he said they sang oui oui oui.....and all he could think about was wee wee wee....he told me he hated the song...he called it the wee wee song....it was chosen by his teacher to sing at an assembly....all the moms and dads were there and he got to oui oui all over them....
