Lyrics in English:

Do not wanna close my eyes,
I don’t want to fall asleep
Because I would miss you, baby,
And I don’t want to miss anything.

Because even when I dream of you,
The sweetest of dreams is not enough.
Still I’d miss you, baby
And I don’t want to miss anything.

Lying close to you
I feel your heart beat.
And I wonder what you’re dreaming about
I wonder if it will be with me.
Then I kiss your eyes and I thank God that we are together
And I just want to be with you
In this moment forever, forever, always.

Do not wanna close my eyes,
I don’t want to fall asleep
Because I would miss you, baby,
And I don’t want to miss anything.
Because even when I dream of you,
The sweetest of dreams is not enough.
Still I’d miss you, baby
And I don’t want to miss anything.

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

This song was written by the Beatles when reggae was starting to become popular in Britain. The phrase “ob la di ob la da, life goes on, bra” was an expression of everyday use by the Nigerian conguero Jimmy Scott, friend of McCartney.

According to statements by the sound engineer Geoff Emerick , who participated in the recording of the song, John Lennon hated the song , described it as “shit for Paul’s grandmothers”.

After leaving the studio in one of the many times they tried to record the song Lennon returned, went to the piano and annoyingly played the opening chords much louder and faster than he had before, this was the final version that was used for the song.

Here’s the lyrics in English:

Desmond has a market stall there
Molly is a singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly: “Baby, I like your face”
And Molly says as she takes his hand

Ob la di – ob la da, la
life goes in a bra
La la, how life is going

Desmond takes the tram to the jewelry store
buy a 20 carat gold ring
takes it to Molly who is waiting at the door
and when he gives it to her she starts singing

Ob la di – ob la da, la
life goes in a bra
La la, how life is going.

Now I can’t sing a love song
The way it has to be
Well I guess I’m not good anymore
But baby, this is me

And I will love you, baby, always
And I will be there forever and one more day, always

I’ll be there until the stars don’t shine
Until the skies burst
And the words don’t rhyme
I know that when I die you’ll be on my mind
And I will love you baby, always.

I listened to how people sang:
“Now the old king is dead, long live the king!”

If you love somebody
Better tell him while he’s here, because
Maybe they will get away from you

You will never know what went right
And then it will depend again
How much time do you have left?

I’ve been to the highest mountains
I’ve been in the deepest rivers
You can go through everything but life goes on

Now accept it but don’t look down

Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘oh
I’m on top of the world, ‘oh
I’ve been waiting for this for a long time
Paying my debts to the land

Just a little city girl, living in a world alone
She took the midnight train that will take her anywhere.
Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train that will take him anywhere.

A singer in a smoking room
The smell of wine and cheap perfume
But with a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on …

Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows that seek in the night
Nightlife people, I saw

seeing to find an emotion
Hiding, somewhere in the night.

Working hard to get my satisfaction,
Everyone wants an emotion
Paying anything to roll the dice,
Just one more time …
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on.

Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows that seek in the night
Street people, living to find an emotion
Hiding, somewhere in the night.

Do not stop believing,
Hold on to the feeling
Nightlife people …

She takes me to that
Special place
And if I look long
I will probably burst into tears

Sweet Child of Mine

As if they had thought of the rain
I hate looking in those eyes
And see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me
To a warm and safe place
