Nog 'n gedagte oor werk en doen.......

You opinion is duly noted...  Unfortunately we cannot implement it, because it requires work, we are committed though........ [The challenge with many things these days......]

Gedagte, oor werk en doen......


Somtyds is dit nie die geval van die individie wat so watwonderlik goed is nie, maar eerder die ander se ongewilligheid om self die werk te doen en te probeer.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
It is often the case that the individual are not that great as perceived, but rather the others non-willingness to do the work and try themselves.

Flardeflenterrepies

Dit is in flarde Oom
Dit is in flarde
Dit is soos die trane wat van my wange afrol
as ek oor eergisterjaar se eergisterjaar dink
Dit is regte trane

Die goeie dae van gister
Maar dit is in flarde oom.
Dit hang soos repies
elk aan 'n garingdraad

Geskeur, gedons, gewremel
en êrens tussenin
die niks
die haat

Môre groei die bôggerôls weer welig
Een oormôre skiet dit saad
gekunsmis deur lëe woorde
en 'n oopmond gekouery

Domonosel dremels
met drêk wortels
uit die vreemde
Wat soek julle hier?

Met'n vraatsigheid vir my gedagtekunsdoek
wat nou in repies hang
aan 'n draad
Ja, dit is in flarde oom

Oh utter feelings of dismay



Oh utter feelings of dismay*
How long do you plan to stay?

When you speak ,it sounds as if you are regurgitating in reverse
your words so fake
like a chocolate coin, in a purse

The chocolate went stale

You are like a parasite tree, from another region
Drinking my earths sap
Depriving our roots of life’s water

Spreading your foreign seeds

Bringing forth foreign offspring
With foreign thoughts
Promoting and pursuing a gold rush

To mine mountains of fools gold

Oh why don’t you go back to your own region
and be a tree just there
amongst your own

Where millions and millions of others are

Maybe you are not wanted there
Maybe you were cast out
Unwanted seed off arrogance

Invading my father’s ground

Give me back my water
So that I my bloom
In the soil where I have been planted

Go back!
Go back!
O hateful thing

Oh God have mercy!
My heart
To sing!!!

Jy sê, wat nê? n.a.v 'n boodskap

Jy sê jy wil iets eksta doen?
Is jy gek en van jou kop af?
Jy dink jy gaan dit beter doen
Jy is nou sommer laf

Jy hoop dat jy 'n verskil sal maak
jy's kens! Laat lees jou kop!
Jy dink jy werk vir 'n goeie saak
Jy's mal, dit is als 'n flop

Jy sê, jy hoop dit is gou verby
die gevoel wat in jou heers.....
Jy wonder wat die wêreld dink
maar ongelukkig, eks bevrees:

Die boot is besig om te sink.

Ai togga ou Dikstes

Hello, Ou dikstes!
Ou Dikstes de Beer.
Aangename kennis
Ek hoor jou hart's seer.

Ag togga! ou dikkes
ou rooihuid de bruin.
Al jou gewerskaf
so alles in 'vain'

Ag gatslag, Gerhardus
ou dikkes de beer
Wanneer de dôner gaan jy
jou les dan tog leer?

Jy hoor nie,
jy wou nie
jou mond tog meer hou nie.
Want was jou mond stil
was jy nie waar
jy is nou nie.

Ag togga! Ou dikstes!
Ou Dikstes de Beer.
Probeer dan maar môre
'n ander dag weer!

En se dan vir môre
se môrens
Koebaai
Ag togga! Ou dikstes!
Stil bek! Hokaai!

The sheer and utter calamity!


The sheer and utter incompetence in it all
The excuses,
The failures,
The lies so tall!

The sheer and utter calamity
In the undeliverable,
the inconsiderable
Non-prosperity!

It is the non-responsibility:
Bad language,
and grammar,
in the make-believe tranquility

It is in the: “has being’s”
“till feather notice.”
The dreamy indolence,
of the mythology of Lotus

It is in disproportionate placement of Logo’s
It is in endless talks
countless lunches
and no-go’s

Yet another M.O.U.
Still another lie to you
“He said, she said”
Next year all is dead

Yet another cry
yet another calamity.
Today and tomorrow
an excuse of indemnity.

Your notion is noted
we are all so devoted,
to utter disparity
and next month’s salary

God!
Please save us from
Ourselves
And the continuing
Calamity!

Des & Dawn - Die gezoem van die bye (live 1966) - YouTube


Die Afrikaans na die Engels is regtig snaaks ;) 

Luister gerus....

Di....e gebrand van die tyres

Op die wysie van: Die gezoem van die bye
-----------------------------------------------
 
[ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6irNPpMQl1E ]

-----------------------------------------------
Di....e gebrand van die tyres
en die youth-leage flyers
die getoi-toi by dosyne;

Where the people demand
and the comrades stand
En nog meer probleme is myne

Waar die grootbekke praat
so ewe kordaat
is elke jan-rap my maat;
Where we march and we want
and the economy cant
en geveg gaan voort in die staat

Di.....e gebrand van die tyres
en die youth-leage flyers
die getoi-toi by dosyne

En die gevolgtrekking is
dit is alles perdemis
en die probleme teel aan soos konyne 
die probleme teel aan soos konyne!

Amandla comrades, Amandla all to me!

I want to sit in my luxury home
drinking Earl grey tea.
i want to drive my Mercedes Benz.
but work hard, no not me.

I want to be a member of Parliament
and fly in the Airoplane
i want to commemorate a comrade
all in pretty vain

I want to take long lekker holidays
and be so casual at work
I want to sit and lounge around
where all the others lurk

I want to complain of my situation
the troubles and problems, of the rest of nation
I want to have the country's gold
and all the other prosperity

I want to, be
I have to, be
All that i can be

I want to, want
I have to, have
All and all for me

I want this life and all for myself
and yes and so I say
We want this life and all for ourselves
Amandla! hip hooray

quick quick
comrades
quick quick
just before i die.

quick quick
comrades
quick quick
How will the nation cry?
