KMO PARPAR
LIKE A BUTTERFLY

 

 

Shehik'rtiha hayta yaldah
hitahavti ba k'mo ba'agada
Gadla benataim vehi halcha.
et haeinaim shela pakcha.

Chipasti bar'chovot l'lo tikvah.
haim elai tachzor ha'ahavah.
Sipru li chaverim shehi parpar
mistovevet mibar el bar.

Chorus (x2):
K'mo parpar mistovevet la balailah
k'mo parpar veahavah achat lo dai la.
K'mo parpar mibar levar,
vehalev sheli nishbar.

Eizo min chutzpah yesh lach isha,
et hachaim sheli at m'tisha.
Noga'at bi, lo margisha
bishvili at lo isha.

Ani achshav holech rachok michan,
lo ertseh od lir'otech le'olam.
Bishvili at lo atid,
at rak avar at hachaim shelcah babar.

Chorus
K'mo parpar mistovevet la balailah
k'mo parpar veahavah achat lo dai la.
K'mo parpar mibar levar,
vehi achshav im gever zar.

K'mo parpar!
When I met her she was a girl
I fell in love with her like in a fairytale.
In the meantime she grew up and left,
as she opened up her eyes.

I searched in the streets without a hope,
Will the love return to me!
Friend told me she's a butterfly,
Goes round and round from field to field.

Chorus (x2):
Like a butterfly she goes around at night,
Like a butterfly and one love isn't enough for her.
Like a butterfly from field to field,
and my heart is broken.

What an attitude you have girl,
you are my life, you exhaust me.
Touching me, you don't feel
You are no woman to me.

I'm now walking far from here
I will never want to see you anymore,
you are not in my future,
you're in the past with your life in the field.

Chorus
Like a butterfly she goes around at night,
Like a butterfly and one love isn't enough for her.
Like a butterfly from field to field,
and she's now with a strange guy.

Like a butterfly!

Spanish translation

COMO UNA MARIPOSA

Cuando la conocí era una niña,

me enamoré de ella

como en los cuentos.

Después creció y se alejó.

Sus ojos abrió.

 

La busqué en las calles

sin esperanza.

Volverá a mí el amor?

Me contaron mis amigos

que es una mariposa,

que revolotea por el campo.

 

Estribillo (2)

Como una mariposa ronda

por las noches,

Como una mariposa un solo

amor no le basta.

Como una mariposa

de flor en flor,

y mi corazón está partido

en dos.

 

Qué atrevimiento tienes, mujer!

Mi vida agotas, me afectas, no te das

cuenta

No eres una mujer para mí.

 

Ahora me voy lejos de aquí,

No quiero verte nunca más

Para mí no eres futuro,

eres solo pasado, eres

solo tu vida en el campo.

 

Estribillo

Como una mariposa ronda

por las noches,

Como una mariposa un solo

amor no le basta.

Como una mariposa

de flor en flor

Y ahora está con un extraño.

 

Como una mariposa!
