“Please help understand”

The song Mateja loves calamari is no longer available online. Therefore we bring you Klara, you are blonde:

Mom has a question. This is how she writes: “Please help understand. Play these four videos and tell me where the hell to draw the line between normal and ‘abnormal’. I love the last one, ‘Mateja loves calamari’, more than the other three, even though I adore all four of them. Where is this line then?”

My reply was that ‘normal’ was just a setting on the dishwasher.

I’m leaving the songs here for everyone to form an opinion. Lyrics are given bellow (the last two translated by Manja Maksimovič on the spot).

Magnifico: Hir aj kam hir aj go / Here I come here I go

Munchen, Frankfurt, Germania,
Roma, Napoli via Italia,
New York bussines America,
All around the world my familia,
Vodka, Russia, Transsibiria,
Twentyfour hours to Australia
Here and there and everywhere
All around the world my compania

Hir aj kom hir aj go / Here I come here I go
Hir aj muv hir aj gruv / Here I move here I groove

London Paris Skandinavia,
Marihuana Tirana Albania,
Export import diaspora,
Everybody now turbomania,
Rio, Maracana, Brasilia,
Africa, India al Arabia,
Here and there and everywhere,
Oo Magnifico and compania.

Hir aj kom hir aj go
Hir aj muv hir aj gruv

The Beatles: I want to hold your hand

Oh yeah, I’ll tell you something
I think you’ll understand
When I’ll say that something
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand

Oh please, say to me
You’ll let me be your man
And please, say to me
You’ll let me hold your hand
I’ll let me hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy
Inside
It’s such a feeling that my love
I can’t hide
I can’t hide
I can’t hide

Yeah, you’ve got that something
I think you’ll understand
When I’ll say that something
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy
Inside
It’s such a feeling that my love
I can’t hide
I can’t hide
I can’t hide

Yeah, you’ve got that something
I think you’ll understand
When I’ll feel that something
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold your hand

Pero Lovšin & Sokoli: Mary, help me (Marija, pomagaj mi) (translated by Manja Maksimovič on the spot)

The train has left, it’s dawning outside
the band has fell silent, the game is long over
Mary, help me, Mary, help me.
 
The fire has died, the friends are all gone
the wine has run out, my love is no more
Mary, help me, Mary, help me.
 
Come down to Earth, I’ll ask you to dance,
you will see how it is when you make love for real.

Moralna mačka: Mateja loves calamari (Mateja ima rada lignje) (translated by Manja Maksimovič on the spot)

Mmmm yummy, they are so good, calamari and French fries
There’s a really cute girl, her name is Mateja,
she loves calamari, I just don’t know if anything else.
That’s why I will ask her, of course
French fries go well with calamari,
the dessert, the soup, and so on,
this is a good lunch for her.
 
Mateja loves calamari and French fries and so on,
She should cram a plateful of calamari
and eat them with joy.
Drink must be as well,
but only non-alcoholic,
coca-cola, sprite and so on,
some of this you drink, Mateja.
 
So I have decided to ask you
if you really adore calamari so much,
I’d love to send them to you via facebook and youtube
but sadly I can’t.
 
Mateja loves calamari and French fries and so on,
and she washes them down with a coke or a sprite 
and then goes to sleep, cause she’s so full.
 
Mmm, yummy, calamari are so good,
yeah, bring another portion, and for me one too, and some French fries, and mayo, and ajvar
where are the calamari and French fries
bye-bye.
