Nina Simone - Go Limp

Oh Daughter, dear Daughter,
Oh Putri, Putri terkasih,
Take warning from me
Terima peringatan dari saya
And don't you go marching
Dan jangan pergi berbaris
With the N-A-A-C-P.
Dengan N-A-A-C-P.
For they'll rock you and roll you
Karena mereka akan mengguncang Anda dan melempar Anda
And shove you into bed.
Dan mendorongmu ke tempat tidur.
And if they steal your nuclear secret
Dan jika mereka mencuri rahasia nuklir Anda
You'll wish you were dead.
Anda akan berharap Anda mati.

[Refrain:]
[Menahan diri:]
Singin too roo la, too roo la, too roo li ay.
Bernyanyi terlalu roo la, terlalu roo la, terlalu roo li ay
Singin too roo la, too roo la, too roo li ay.
Bernyanyi terlalu roo la, terlalu roo la, terlalu roo li ay

Oh Mother, dear Mother,
Oh Ibu, Ibu tersayang,
No, I'm not afraid.
Tidak, saya tidak takut.
For I'll go on that march
Karena aku akan pergi pawai itu
And I'll return a virgin maid.
Dan aku akan mengembalikan seorang perawan perawan.
With a brick in my handbag
Dengan batu bata di tas tangan saya
And a smile on my face
Dan senyum di wajahku
And barbed wire in my underwear
Dan kawat berduri di celana dalamku
To shed off disgrace.
Untuk menghilangkan aib.

[Refrain]
[Menahan diri]

One day they were marching.
Suatu hari mereka berbaris.
A young man came by
Seorang pria muda datang
With a beard on his cheek
Dengan janggut di pipinya
And a gleam in his eye.
Dan sinar di matanya.
And before she had time
Dan sebelum dia punya waktu
To remember her brick...
Untuk mengingat batunya ...
They were holding a sit-down
Mereka sedang duduk
On a nearby hay rig.
Di rig hay terdekat.

[Refrain]
[Menahan diri]

For meeting is pleasure
Bertemu adalah kesenangan
And parting is pain.
Dan perpisahan adalah rasa sakit.
And if I have a great concert
Dan jika saya memiliki konser yang hebat
Maybe I won't have to sing those folk songs again.
Mungkin saya tidak perlu menyanyikan lagu-lagu rakyat itu lagi.
Oh Mother, dear Mother
Oh Ibu, Ibu tersayang
I'm stiff and I'm sore
Saya kaku dan sakit
From sleeping three nights
Dari tidur tiga malam
On a hard classroom floor.
Di lantai kelas yang keras.

[Refrain]
[Menahan diri]

One day at the briefing
Suatu hari saat briefing
She'd heard a man say,
Dia mendengar seorang pria berkata,
Go perfectly limp,
Pincang dengan sempurna,
And be carried away.
Dan dibawa pergi.
So when this young man suggested
Maka ketika pemuda ini menyarankan
It was time she was kissed,
Sudah waktunya dia dicium,
She remembered her brief
Dia ingat briefnya
And did not resist
Dan tidak melawan

[Refrain]
[Menahan diri]

Oh Mother, dear Mother,
Oh Ibu, Ibu tersayang,
No need for distress,
Tidak perlu tertekan,
For the young man has left me
Karena pemuda itu telah meninggalkanku
His name and address.
Nama dan alamatnya.
And if we win
Dan jika kita menang
Tho' a baby there be,
Ada bayi,
He won't have to march
Dia tidak perlu berbaris
Like his da-da and me.
Seperti da-da dan aku.
