conchords

Οι Flight of the Conchords είναι ένα κωμικό ντουέτο, δυο παλαβιάρηδες Νεοζηλανδοί, ο Μπρετ κι ο Τζεμέιν που κάνουν stand-up comedy και είχαν και μια ωραιότατη σειρά στην οποία έπαιζαν τους εαυτούς τους. Σου έχω ξαναγράψει γι' αυτούς, θυμάσαι. Παρακάτω, τα 10 ξεκαρδιστικότερα τραγούδια τους, με τους στίχους τους για να πιάσεις πλήρως το νόημα, στο μακρύτερο post στην ιστορία αυτού του blog.

10. You Don't Have To Be A Prostitute

Πώς ήταν το "Roxanne" των Police; Αλλά για άντρες. Ναι. Στίχοι εδώ.

Do you have any other skills? Like typing?

9. Sugarlumps

Δώσε έμφαση στη χορογραφία. Στίχοι εδώ.

Honies try all kinds of tomfoolery to steal a feel of my family jewelry

8. The Humans Are Dead

Στο έχω ξαναδείξει, με στίχους εδώ.

We used poisonous gasses
(With traces of lead)
To poison their asses.
(Actually their lungs)

7. A Kiss Is Not A Contract

They call it a fly because it takes you up to heaven oh oh.

A kiss is not a contract
But it's very nice - Mmmmm, very nice
Just because you've been exploring my mouth
Doesn't mean you get to take an expedition further south
No.
A kiss is not a contract,
But it's very nice,
It's very, very nice,
Just because we've been playing tonsil hockey
Doesn't mean you get to score the goal that's in my jockey
Just because I'm in a two man novelty band
Doesn't mean it's all about poontang.
I can't go around loving everyone
I just wouldn't get anything done
You can take me out to dinner that might be quite nice
you could buy me a burrito and some beans and rice
but that won't get you into pants paradise
They call it a fly because it takes you up to heaven oh oh
A kiss is not a contract but it's very nice. It's very very nice.
I'm only one man, baby, pretty baby
We're only two men, ladies
Babies. Pretty babies.

6. We're Both In Love With A Sexy Lady

Όταν μια γυναίκα με μάτι που πετάει και επιληπτικό σκύλο προκαλεί Τζαστιντιμπερλεϊκές κραυγές. Στίχοι εδώ.

I think it's hot
The way she looks left alot

5. Rhymenoceros vs. Hiphopopotamus

Επική μάχη ανάμεσα σε δύο ράπερ alter egos.

I’m the mother flippin’ Rhymenocerous
My beats are phat and the birds are on my back
And I’m horny
I’m horny
If you choose to proceed you will indeed concede
Cos I hit you with my flow
The Wild Rhino Stampede.

I’m not just wild, I’m trained,
Domesticated
I was raised by a rapper and rhino that dated
And subsequently procreated
That’s how it goes
Here’s the Hiphopopotamus
The hip hop hippo

They call me the Hiphopopotamus
My lyrics are bottomless

They call me the Hiphopopotamus
Flows that glow like phosphorous
Poppin’ off the top of this esophagus
Rockin’ this metropolis
I’m not a large water-dwelling mammal
Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis?
Did Steve tell you that, perchance?
Steve.

My rhymes and records they don’t get played
Because my records and rhymes they don’t get made
And if you rap like me you don’t get paid
And if you roll like me you don’t get laid.

My rhymes are so potent that in this small segment
I made all of the ladies in the area pregnant
Yes, sometimes my lyrics are sexist
But you lovely bitches and hoes should know I’m trying to correct this.

Other rappers dis me
Say my rhymes are sissy.

Why? Why? Why? What?
Why exactly? What? Why?
Be more constructive with your feedback, please. Why?

Why, because I rap about reality?
Like me and my grandma drinking a cup of tea?
There ain’t no party like my nanna’s tea party.
Hey! Ho!

I’m the motherflippin’
I’m the motherflippin’
I’m the motherflippin’

Who’s the motherflippin?

4. Issues (Think About It)

Μην κοροϊδευόμαστε, πολύ καλύτερο από το "We Are The World". Το βίντεο έχει και λίγο stand-up, για να τους δεις πώς παίζουν live.

Children on the streets using guns and knives
Taking drugs and each other`s lives
Killing each other using knives and forks
And calling each other names like dork

There`s people on the street getting diseases from monkeys
Yeah that`s what I said, their getting diseases from monkeys
Whys this happening, please, whose been touching these monkeys
Leave these poor sick monkeys alone
There sick, they`ve got problems enough as it is

A man is lying on the street, some punk has chopped off his head
And I`m the only one who stops to see if he`s dead, aaoohhh
Turns out he`s dead

That`s why I`m singing, Aaaaoooh what is wrong with the world today?
What`s wrong with the world today, never said nothings wrong with it
Uooo, what is wrong with the world today?
Think about it, think about it, think, think about it

Good cops get framed and put into a can
And all the money that we`re making is going to the maaan

What man, whose the man, when`s a man a man, why`s it so hard to be a man
Am I a man? Yes, technically, yes.

Oohh, come on, sont zootka they`re turning kids into slaves
They`re turning kids into slaves just to make cheaper sneakers
But what`s the real cost, `cause the sneakers don`t seem that much cheaper
Why are we still paying so much for sneakers when you got little kid slaves making them
What are your overheads?

Well, at the end of your life, you are lucky if you die
Sometimes I wonder why I would even try
Why try
I saw a man lying on the street half dead
He had knives and forks sticking out of his leg
He said, Ahh ahh ahh ahhhhhhhhwww
Can somebody get the knife and fork out of my leg, please
Ooh, could somebody please remove these cutleries from my knees
Yeah yeeeahhh
This is where we break it down
This is where we break it down
We`ll break it down
What are they doing, their breaking it down
What do they do, and now their keeping it funky
Just having a funky jam and then we`re going to drop the beat
And then we`ll bring it back *wails* Up
Wah wah wah waaah!

*Both go to town with the wailing*

Then we`ll take it low
Fading out, fading out
We`re talking about the issues, but we`re keeping it funky
We`re fading out, we`re just fading out
Why they getting quiet, they`re just fading out
*monkey noises*
Stop touching that monkey

3. Pencils In The Wind

Γιατί η αγάπη είναι σα σελοτέιπ.

Lives are like retractable pencils
If you push them too hard they're gonna break
And people are like paper dolls
Paper dolls and people, they're a similar shape
Hmm hmm hm
Love is like a roll of tape
It's real good for making two things one
But just like that roll of tape
Love sometimes breaks off before you were done
Another way that love is similar to tape
That I've noticed
Is sometimes it's hard to see the end
You search on the roll (search on the roll)
Search on the roll (searching round the roll)
Search on the roll (search)
With your fingernail
Again and again
And again and again. And again.
Brown paper, white paper
Stick it together with the tape
The tape of love
The sticky stuff
Brown paper, white paper
Stick it together with tape
The tape of love
The sticky stuff.
People people Chorus: Brown paper, white paper
Paper paper Stick it together with tape
Paper paper The tape of love
People people People people
Pencil pencil Pencil pencil Paper paper
Put the pencil to the paper
Give the paper to the people
Let the people read about the sello tape
Oh baby baby Yeah
You know, Jemaine, I've been thinking about love. And I guess it's the very stron gest adhesive.
Oh sorry, Bret. Were you talking to me? I was humming. What did you say?
Oh, just...nothing.
Brown paper, white paper
Stick it together with tape
The tape of love
The sticky stuff
Yeah
Say it
Sticky Stick stick
Stick it together Ye-yeah

2. The Most Beautiful Girl In The Room

Έχεις δει ποτέ μια γυναίκα τόσο όμορφη που θα μπορούσε να είναι σερβιτόρα;

Looking round the room,
I can tell that you are the most beautiful girl in the... room.
In the whole wide room
And when you're on the street
Depending on the street
I bet you are definitely in the top three good looking girls on the street
Depending on the street
And when I saw you at my mate's place
I thought what...is...she...doing... at my mate's place
How did Dave get a hottie like that to a party like this
Good one Dave!!! Ohhhh you're a legend, Dave!
I asked Dave if he's going to make a move on you
He's not sure
I said "Dave do you mind if I do?"
He says he doesn't mind
but I can tell he kinda minds
but I'm gonna do it anyway
I see you standing all alone by the stereo
I dim the lights down very low, here we go
You're so beautiful - You could be a waitress
You're so beautiful - You could be an air hostess in the 60s
You're so beautiful - You could be a part...time...model
And then I seal the deal
I do my moves
I do my dance moves
It's twelve oh two
Just me and you
And seven other dudes
Around you on the dance floor
I draw you near
Let's get outta here
Let's get in a cab - I'll buy you a kebab!
Now I can't believe - That I'm sharing a kebab with the most beautiful girl I have ever seen
With a kebab
Why don't we leave?
Let's go to my houseand we can feel each other up on the couch
Oh no. I don't mind taking it slow-ho-ho, no-ho-ho, yeah.
Cause you're so beautiful - Like a, tree
Or a high-class prostitute
You're so beautiful - Mmm, you could be a part-time model
But you'd probably have to keep your normal job
A part-time model!
Spending part of your time, modelling,
and part of your time, next to meeeeeeeeee!
My place is usually tidier than this...

1. Hurt Feelings

To καλύτερο των καλύτερων, μια ραπ ελεγεία για την απόρριψη και τον πόνο του να σε πληγώνει κάποιος που αγαπάς. Ή ένας πωλητής εξοπλισμού scuba diving.

Some people say that rappers don’t have feelings
We have feelings
We have feelings
Some people say that we are not rappers
We’re rappers
That hurts our feelings
Hurts our feelings when you say we’re not rappers
Some people say that rappers are invincible
We’re vincible
We’re vincible

What you are about to hear are true stories
Real experiences
Autobiographical raps
Things that happened to us
All true
Bring the rhyme

I make a meal for my friends
Try to make it delicious
Try to keep it nutritious
Create wonderful dishes
Not one of them thinks about the way I feel
Nobody compliments the meal

I got hurt feelings, I got hurt feelings
I feel like a prize asshole
No one even mentions my casserole
I got hurt feelings, I got hurt feelings
You could’ve said something nice about my profiteroles

Here’s a little story to bring a tear to your eye
I was shopping for a wetsuit to scuba dive
But every suit I tried is too big around the thighs
And the assistant suggested I try a ladies’ size

I got hurt feelings, I got hurt feelings
I’m not gonna wear a ladies’ wetsuit, I’m a man
I got hurt feelings, I got hurt feelings
Get me a small man’s wetsuit, please

It’s my birthday, 2003
Waiting for a call from my family

They forgot about me

I got hurt feelings, I got hurt feelings
The day after my birthday is not my birthday, mum

I call my friends and say let’s go into town
But they’re all too busy to go into town
So I go by myself, I go into town
Then I see all my friends, they’re all in town

I got hurt feelings, I got hurt feelings
They’re all lined up to watch that movie
Maid in Manhattan

Have you even been told that your ass is too big?
Have you ever been asked if your hair is a wig?
Have you ever been told you’re mediocre in bed?
Have you ever been told you’ve got a weird-shaped head?
Has your family ever forgotten you and driven away?
Once again, they forgot about J
Were you ever called homo ’cause at school you took drama?
Have you ever been told that you look like a llama?

Tears of a rapper
Tears of a rapper
I’m cryin’ tears of a rapper
Tears of a rapper
