lyrics

Some Men Just Don’t Translate

I have tried many men from around the globe
Thrown myself into their arms
Though nightly I question, I prod and probe
And ponder on their multi-lingual charms

People say the French are a romantic race
But more than anything they just enjoy the chase
If you are wanting dinner you will have to wait
For my countrymen___are notoriously late

They say in Holland when a man says take a hike
It’s just an invitation to get on a bike
The Spaniards are so passionate they’ll call each day
But don’t call them back___or they quickly run away

The language of love…is hard to conjugate
To communicate
It’s too approximate
You don’t always get past the starting gate
Some men…just don’t translate

The Swiss they work like clockwork but they get wound up
And if they ask your age it’s safer to round up
A Polish man got jealous in the discotheque
When I told him I___was just picking up a Czech

If you want a lover who puts you at your ease
I recommend a romance with a Portuguese
But when he said let's lay down for siesta
All he did was snore, and I did not get fiesta.

Dance break

The language of love…is hard to conjugate
To communicate
It’s too approximate
You don’t always get past the starting gate
Some men…just don’t translate

Spoken: Where are you from?

With this song I do not mean to take a swipe
I know that we are more than just a stereotype
The men that I misunderstand but love the most
Paddle in the seas ____of the rocky British coast

They say they love their queen and country oh so much
But when the meal is over they say “Let’s go Dutch?’
Their culinary triumph is the oven chip
Vive La Difference…but please stop voting UKip

The language of love…is hard to conjugate
To communicate
It’s too approximate
You don’t always get past the starting gate
Some men…just don’t translate

The heart it is a muscle and I must flex it.
Even though my failed romances perplex it.
Be gentle with me if you all choose to Brexit...
Cause some men just don’t translate
No some men just don’t____translate
