Перевод песни Hisham Fageeh – No Woman, No Drive

 

[Hisham Fageeh]

Hello, my name is Hisham Fageeh.
I’m an artist and social activist.
I don’t really listen to music, but while studying
in the US I heard this song by this
Jamaican guy that caught my attention.
I decided to do my own rendition; with lyrics
relevant to my culture, but without
musical instruments. With the help of some
of my talented friends I sing.
No Woman, No Drive
No Woman, No Drive
No Woman, No Drive
No Woman, No Drive
Say say
Say I used to sit in the family car but backseat
Ova-ovaries all safe and well
So you can make lots and lots of babies
Good friends we had and good friends we lost
On the highway
In this bright future you can’t forget your past
So put your car key away
No woman, no drive
No woman, no drive
Hey little sister, don’t touch the wheel
No woman, no drive
I remember when you used to sit in the family car, but backseat
Of course the driver can take you everywhere
Because the queens don’t driiiiive
But you can cook me my dinner
Of which I’d share with you
Your feet is your only carriage
But only inside the house – and when I say it I mean
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
No woman, no drive
No woman, no drive
Hey little sister, don’t touch that wheel
No woman, no drive
