hases san|anai (Gotta catch them all!)

Post by Foolster41 »

I tried to fit it in with the meter as best as I could. I think there is one line that has one sylable too many that you have to rush a little in to sing.
No I will NOT sing it. (Talking to you crazyettin [:D] )

Code: Select all

ilades !agigils esil				I wanna be the very best	
!akalgigils daes				Like no one ever was			
tsiisanais daes kihases 			To catch them is my real test			
negilskas es tosanai			To train them is my cause		

nenas daes tsi!arathe			    I will travel across the land		
ols uailgilosh					     Searching far and wide				
kas daes tsidokenon			     Each Pokemon to understand			
relkakelultos				       The power that's inside				

dokenon (hases san|anai), tos ail el	       Pokemon, its you and me			
kas es negigils				        I know it's my destiny				
dokemon esileesha			       Pokemon, oh, you're my best friend
nekakels esnai giton			        In a world we must defend		

dokenon (hases san|anai) elsilsantso       Pokemon, a heart so true		
kakels gak kaksukete			        Our courage will pull us through	
kas datsies dachitos			        You teach me and I'll teach you		
dokemon hases chi|anai	(hases chi|anai)	Pokemon, gotta catch 'em all		
dokenon

Pokemon, gotta catch 'em all

Jokemon, [you/we] must buy them all.

By the way, does anyone see any major problems with having 'them all' as being homophonous with 'everything/everybody'?

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but isn't 'them all' and 'everything' not homophones, but the same meaning? Isn't the idea of the song that one catches "everything" (of pokemon)? Like I said, I think I'm not understanding what you mean.

Of course!

Them All = the plethora and totality of the subset of all Pokemon (jury's out on including Celebi or Exeggutor).

Everything/everybody = The plethora and totality of G.I. Joes (the TALL ones), Transformers, Star Wars figures, Holly Hobby, Barbies, Kiddles, My Little Ponies, Weebles, Bakugans, Gormiti, Digimon, Fisher Price People, Sesame Street Finger Puppets, those Vectron-ball things, little unmoveable Smurf figures, Monchichis, Kubriks, Go-Bots, Flanimals, Masters of the Universe, Frankenberry & Booberry & Count Chocula & Fruit Brute, Mego dolls (no, ACTION FIGURES), MICROnauts, as well as Pokemon.

Good point. I suppose that's a fairly important distinction when you lay it out like that.

Which is a shame, since it means dropping (or at least screwing with) one of two nicely elegant systems. Neverthless.

Oh, and you forgot Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles [:D] .

Many thanks, Lambuzhao.

If your language doesn't distinguish them grammatically, then there shouldn't be a problem. Filipino Tagalog doesn't really have separate words for those concepts, we use <silang lahat> for both the concept of "them all" and "everything/everybody."

I went for a translation that stays faithful to the rhymes, as opposed to a literal translation. Therefore, the text differs from the original.

The power, it is where?
