How Do You Find The Word That Means Maria
By: admin

"These are a few of my favorite things" These words are sung around the globe, in thousands of productions of THE SOUND OF MUSIC every year. But there are many productions in which these words are never uttered. In the Netherlands, where a tour of THE SOUND OF MUSIC is currently running through June 13th, Dat is nou iets waar ik zielsveel van hou❠is sung instead. Directly translated it means, That is now something that I deeply love.

In Brazil, where THE KING AND I is playing through May 30th. Instead of "Getting to know you, getting to know all about you", they sing, "A sua vidaé a lição mais querida" which translates to, "Your life is my dearest lesson".

So, let's take a language lesson from our colleagues overseas. Your friends will be amazed at how fast you picked up Dutch when you ask them to pass the "slagroom op strudels at your next dinner party. You may not be able to converse fluently after this lesson, but it's a very good place to start.

R&H to Dutch:

Roses= Rozen

Copper= Koperen

Summer=Zomers

Clock = Klokken

Spring = Lente

Dog= hond

Papers = Kranten

Dearly = Zielsveel

Love = Hou

Fear= Angst

Horse = Paarden

Trotting = Dravend

"IET WAAR IK ZIELSVEL VAN HOU"

 

MARIA
Blaadjes van rozen en krakende kranten

Koperen ketels en warm wollen wanten

Pakjes verpakt met papier en met touw.

Dat is nou iets waar ik zielsveel van hou.

Dravende paarden en slagroom op strudels

Klokken die luiden en schnitzel met noedels

Gras dat bedekt is met druppels van dauw

Dat is nou iets waar ik zielsveel van hou.

Zomers een lied dat ik zing in de weiden,

's Winters een slee om mee sleetje te rijden.

Lente na maanden dat winterse grauw

Dat is nou iets waar ik zielsveel van hou.

Als de hond bijt

Als de bij steekt

Werkt het zo voor mij:

Dan denk ik aan waar ik zo zielsveel van hou

En gaat al mijn angst voorbi

"SOMETHING THAT I DEEPLY LOVE"

MARIA
Petals of roses and rustling papers

Copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Packages wrapped with paper and string.

That is now something that I deeply love.

 

Trotting horses and whipped cream on strudels

Bells that ring and schnitzel with noodles

Grass that is covered with drops of dew

That is now something that I deeply love.

 

 

In Summer a song that I sing in the meadows,

In Winter a sledge to go sledge driving.

Spring, after months of that wintery grey

That is now something that I deeply love.

 

When the dog bites

When the bee stings

It works like this for me:

Then I think about what I so deeply love.

And then all my fears pass over

R&H to Portugeuse

Life= Vida

Adage = Ditado

Feel = Sinto

World = Mundo

New = Novo

Heart = Coração

Book = Livro

Sudden = Repente

Signs = Sinais

You = Vocês

I = Eu

Breathe = Respiro

Explore = Exploro

GETTING TO KNOW YOU"

A SUA VIDA"


ANNA
UM DITADO JÁ DIZIA

QUE UM MESTRE SABE MAIS

QUANDO APRENDE COM OS ALUNOS

E DECIFRA OS SEUS SINAIS!

E EU PORTANTO AGORA SINTO

QUE É CHEGADA A MINHA VEZ

DE ENXERGAR UM MUNDO NOVO

QUE à  A VIDA DE VOCÊSâ

(falado) Conhecer  vocÃs!

A SUA VIDA

É A LIÇÃO MAIS QUERIDA

O SEU ENCANTO

DENTRO DE CADA EXPRESSÃO

VOU ESTUDANDO, E QUANDO MAIS EU EXPLORO

MAIS EU ADORO

SEU CORAÇÃO!

A SUA VIDA

É PARA MIM COMO UM LIVRO

ONDE EU ME PERCO PARA DEPOIS ME ENCONTRAR

E DE REPENTE

SINTO NO AR QUE EU RESPIRO

UM MUNDO NOVO VINDO DE VOCÊS

VEM SAINDO DE VOCÊS

ME LEVAR!

YOUR LIFE"


ANNA
AN ADAGE USED TO SAY

A TEACHER BECOMES WISER

WHEN HE LEARNS WITH THE STUDENTS

AND DECODES THEIR SIGNS!

AND, THEREFORE, I NOW FEEL

IT'S NOW MY TURN

TO DISCOVER A NEW WORLD

WHICH IS YOUR WAY OF LIFE

(spoken) Getting to know you!

YOUR LIFE

IS MY DEAREST LESSON

ITS MAGIC

IN EVERY WAY IT IS EXPRESSED

I AM OBSERVING, AND THE MORE

I EXPLORE IT

MORE I ADORE

THOSE HEARTS OF YOURS!

YOUR LIFE

IS FOR ME LIKE A BOOK

WHERE I CAN LOSE MYSELF

AND THEN I FIND MYSELF AGAIN

ALL OF A SUDDEN

I FEEL IN THE AIR I'M BREATHING

A BRAND NEW WORLD COMING FROM YOU

IT COMES POURING OUT OF YOU

TO SWEEP ME AWAY!
