The Sunday Bits for Sunday June 5, 2011 True, but let’s see if we can clear the coffee debt

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Madonna

June 5th, 2011 at 05:58pm

There’s a reason for this one. After the peculiar sideshows in the Federal and New South Wales parliaments this week (see this week’s Sunday Bits if you don’t know what I’m on about), I was reminded of this song. So I’m dedicating it to our politicians in the hope that they’ll take the hint and do something productive rather than wasting time on the same old nonsense day-after-day, week-after-week.

So, without further ado, this week’s award goes to Madonna, and the feature song is “Sorry”. And a heads up, the video is definitely worthy of a PG rating. If you’re offended by a bit of skin, don’t watch it, and don’t complain to me.

Je suis désolé (“I am sorry” in French)
Lo siento (“I am sorry” in Spanish)
Ik ben droevig (“I am sad” in Dutch)
Sono spiacente (“I am sorry” in Italian)
Perdóname (“forgive me” in Spanish)

I’ve heard it all before
I’ve heard it all before
I’ve heard it all before
I’ve heard it all before
[repeated]

I don’t wanna hear, I don’t wanna know
Please don’t say you’re sorry
I’ve heard it all before
And I can take care of myself
I don’t wanna hear, I don’t wanna know
Please don’t say ‘forgive me’
I’ve seen it all before
And I can’t take it anymore

You’re not half the man you think you are
Save your words because you’ve gone too far
I’ve listened to your lies and all your stories (listened to your stories)
You’re not half the man you’d like to be

I don’t wanna hear, I don’t wanna know
Please don’t say you’re sorry
I’ve heard it all before
And I can take care of myself
I don’t wanna hear, I don’t wanna know
Please don’t say ‘forgive me’
I’ve seen it all before
And I can’t take it anymore

Don’t explain yourself ’cause talk is cheap
There’s more important things than hearing you speak
You stayed because I made it so convenient (so convenient)
Don’t explain yourself, you’ll never see

(Sorry, sorry, sorry) (repeated)
Gomenasai (“Forgive me”/”sorry” in japanese)
Mujhe maaf kardo (“Please forgive me” in Hindi)
Przepraszam (“I’m sorry” in Polish)
Sli’kha (“I am sorry” in Hebrew)
Forgive me…

(Sorry, sorry, sorry) [repeated]
I’ve heard it all before
I’ve heard it all before
I’ve heard it all before
[repeated]

I don’t wanna hear, I don’t wanna know
Please don’t say you’re sorry
I’ve heard it all before
And I can take care of myself
I don’t wanna hear, I don’t wanna know
Please don’t say ‘forgive me’
I’ve seen it all before
And I can’t take it anymore

I don’t wanna hear, I don’t wanna know
Please don’t say you’re sorry
(Don’t explain yourself cause talk is cheap)
I’ve heard it all before, And I can take care of myself
(There’s more important things than hearing you speak)
I don’t wanna hear, I don’t wanna know
Please don’t say ‘forgive me’
