And away!

EDIT: Wow, I just found an explanation to the Hatt baby song. It all makes perfect sense now!
A man called Azar Habib, from Lebanon, recorded some songs in the early 80's. As luck would have it, a tape with his songs made its way to Sweden, where I live. One of the songs was "Habbeetik", which is heard in the flash video "Hatten är din". So, Mr Habib is singing in Lebanese, or Arabic. Now, most Swedes don't understand a word of it. So, what to do? Obviously to "translate" the song to Swedish. The printed lyrics in the video are in Swedish, phonetically matching the original singing to a stunning extent, really. Unfortunately it's not possible to maintain that in a translation to English (I can't anyway).

So, what's it about? Well, I have no clue what the original lyrics are about, but the Swedish lyrics are about a hat. It's based on a drinking game, where the person being the most drunk gets to wear the hat. The others then gather round in a circle and, while pointing at the "winner", chant "Hatten är din" which means "the hat is yours".



Following is a translation of the lyrics.

Lalalalalalala...
Oooooh-ohohohoh

Winning kinky and fun

The hat is yours, the hat is yours
Hat-baby, hat-baby

The hat is living it up,
The hat is living it up

The hat is yours, the hat is yours
Hat-baby, hat-baby

This is hopeless
We find this is becoming gay
It was always fun

The hat is yours, the hat is yours
Hat-baby, hat-baby

The hat is yours, the hat is yours
The hat is yours, hat-baby

Lalalalalalala
Oooooh-ohohohoh

Cool guy holding a soda
Yes, that's what we like - something sweet

Cool guy holding a soda
Yes, that's what we like - something sweet

Threw the hat in Bert's coke-au-lait
Threw the hat in Bert's coke-au-lait

But baby, of course you knew that
But baby, of course you knew that
But hat-baby, of course you knew
But baby, of course you knew that

The hat is yours, the hat is yours
The hat is yours, hat-baby

Lalalalalalala
Oooooh-ohohohoh

Borrow the LP "The hat is yours"
You can dress up and make out on TV

Borrow the LP "The hat is yours"
You can do drugs and end up on TV

Yes, the hat is yours, yours!
Yes, the hat is yours, yours!

Everyone knows why and everything will get perfect
Everyone knows why and everything will get perfect
Everyone knows why and everything will get perfect
Everyone knows why and everything will get perfect

The hat is yours, the hat is yours
The hat is yours, hat-baby

Lalalalalalala
Oooooh-ohohohoh

Glue piece of ham, cool.
Glue piece of ham, cool, cool.

The hat is yours, the hat is yours
Hat-baby, hat-baby

The hat is living it up,
Yes, the hat is living it up

The hat is yours, the hat is yours
Hat-baby, hat-baby

This is hopeless
We find this is becoming gay
It was always fun

The hat is yours, the hat is yours
Hat-baby, hat-baby

The hat is yours, the hat is yours
The hat is yours, hat-baby

Lalalalalalala
LALALALALALALA...
Hmm, well, I guess that's what happens when you translet from Arabic to Swedish to English.
