Carmen (Acapella and Final Version)

Recommended Posts

French translation in yellow.



Darlin', darlin', doesn't have a problem
Lyin' to herself 'cause her liquour's top shelf
It's alarming, honestly, how charming she can be
Fooling everyone, telling them she's having fun

She says, "You don't want to be like me,
Don't want to see all the things I've seen
I'm dyin', I'm dyin'."
She says, "You don't want to get this way,
Famous and dumb at an early age
Lyin', I'm lyin'."

The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen
She gives them butterflies
Bats her cartoon eyes

She laughs like God
Her mind's like a diamond
Audiotune lies
She's still shinin', like lightning
White lightning

Carmen, Carmen, staying up till morning
Only 17, but she walks the streets so mean
It's alarming, truly, how disarming you can be
Eatin' soft ice cream, Coney Island Queen

She says "You don't want to be like me,
Lookin' for fun, gettin' high for free
I'm dyin', I'm dyin'."
She says "You don't want to get this way,
Street walk at night and a star by day
It's tirin', tirin'."

The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen
She gives them butterflies
Bats her cartoon eyes

She laughs like God
Her mind's like a diamond
Audiotune lies
She's still shinin', like lightning
White lightning

Baby's all dressed up with nowhere to go
That's the little story of the girl you know
Relying on the kindness of strangers
Tying cherry knots, smiling, doing party favours
Put your red dress on, put your lipstick on
Sing your song, song, now the camera's on
And you're alive again

Mon amour, je sais que tu m'aimes aussi
Tu as besoin de moi
Tu as besoin de moi dans ta vie
Tu ne peux vivre sans moi
Et je mourrerai sans toi
Je tuerai pour toi

[My love, I know that you love me too,
You need me,
You need me in your life,
You could not live without me,
I will die without you
And I will kill for you]

The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen
She gives them butterflies
Bats her cartoon eyes

She laughs like God
Her mind's like a diamond
Audiotune lies
She's still shinin', like lightning
White lightning

Darlin', darlin', doesn't have a problem
Lyin' to herself, 'cause her liquour's top shelf


ACAPELLA DEMO ("LITTLE CARMEN"):


The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen
She gives them butterflies
Bats her cartoon eyes
She laughs like God
Her mind's like a diamond
Audiotune lies
She's still shinin', shinin', shinin'

Darling, darling, doesn't have a problem
Lying to herself, says her liquor's top shelf
It's alarming, honestly, how charming she can be
She's fooling everyone, telling 'em she's having fun

The night descends and there goes Carmen,
Only seventeen but she walks the streets so mean,
The men, they stop, when she walks by,
And whisper “Who is she?”
La princesa de la silence
Her walk is art, her words are lightning,
Striking everyone when she pass by them

Carmen, darling, doesn’t have a problem,
She’s lying to herself ’cause her liquor’s top shelf,
It’s alarming honestly how charming she can be,
She’s fooling everyone, telling ‘em she’s having fun.

She looks animated, like a cartoon baby
With a tiara smile and a shortcake heart,
Yo she looks animated, like a cartoon baby
With a champagne sigh and her cocaine heart

You’re like a light but you can’t turn off,
You’re getting too bright and you need to stop,
But you can’t tonight or you’ll get in hot,
And your body keeps twisting, moving, twisting, moving, shaking,
You’re twisting, moving, shaking, yeah
Dance until dawn, yeah, you dance until you drop.

Carmen, Carmen, doesn’t have a problem,
Lying to herself ’cause her liquor’s top shelf,
It's alarming, honest, how disarming she can be,
You're fooling everyone,
When inside they know you’re dying.

Carmen, Carmen, doesn't have a problem
Lying to herself 'cause her liquor's top shelf

Here is the alternate version of the song!

 

The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen,

She gives ‘em butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes,

She laughs like God, her mind’s like a diamond,

Audiotune lies, but she’s still shining, shining, shining.

 

Darling, darling, doesn’t have a problem

Lying to herself, says her liquor’s top shelf,

It’s alarming honestly how charming she can be,

She’s fooling everyone, telling ‘em she’s having fun.

 

The night descends and there goes Carmen,

Only seventeen but she walks the streets so mean,

The men, they stop when she walks by,

and whisper “Who is she?” la princesa de la silence,

 

Her walk is art, her words are lightning,

Striking everyone when she pass by them.

 

Carmen, darling, doesn’t have a problem,

She’s lying to herself ‘cause her liquor’s top shelf,

It’s alarming honestly how charming she can be,

She’s fooling everyone, telling ‘em she’s having fun.

 

She looks animated like a cartoon baby

with a tiara smile and a shortcake heart,

Yo, she looks animated, like a cartoon baby

with a champagne sighs and her cocaine heart,

 

You’re like a light, but you can’t turn off,

You’re getting too bright and you need to stop,

But you can’t tonight or you’ll get in hot,

And your body keeps twisting, moving, twisting, moving, shaking,

 

You’re twisting, moving, shaking, your dance until dawn,

Yeah, you dance until you drop.

 

Carmen, carmen doesn’t have a problem,

Lying to herself ‘cause her liquor’s top shelf,

False alarming, honest how disarming she can be,

Fooling everyone, when inside they know you’re done.

 

Carmen, carmen, doesn’t have a problem,

Lying to herself ‘cause her liquor’s top shelf.

The Acapella version is so much dark I love it, especially this part 

 

 

 


ACAPELLA DEMO ("LITTLE CARMEN"):


You’re like a light but you can’t turn off,
You’re getting too bright and you need to stop,
But you can’t tonight or you’ll get in hot,
And your body keeps twisting, moving, twisting, moving, shaking,
You’re twisting, moving, shaking, yeah

Dance until dawn, yeah, you dance until you drop.

Carmen, Carmen, doesn’t have a problem,
Lying to herself ’cause her liquor’s top shelf,
It's alarming, honest, how disarming she can be,
You're fooling everyone,
When inside they know you’re dying.
 

 

Carmen is like having a convulsion there  :ohno:  :flutter:

I will never get over the complexity of these lyrics :defeated:

the demo acapella hurts my ears anyone else

Well that is how she would still be producing her music if she wasn't picked up by some hobos on the street who finally discovered her and forced Video Games to be an Europe-only hit so you just better be grateful we are behind these days and appreciate them for what they did give to us.
