    Default Twarres - Fugelfrij (from Frisian to English)

    Hi! Could someone help me out with these lyrics? I would really appreciate that! I can understand just some parts of the song, but not even nearly the whole song.

    Twarres - Fgelfrij

    Do sjochst eltse dei omheech
    Wolst sa graach mei alle fgels mei
    Do hearst stimmen t ‘e steech
    Mar se sizze net watst heare wolst

    Want dat lytse hert wol it leafst noch dizze dei
    t ‘e std en mei de fgels mei

    As hy sliept is hy d’r wer
    Yn syn dreamen nimt de wyn him mei
    Sjocht hy al syn freonen wer
    As hy hjir is is hy fgelfrij

    Do fongst de fisken t ‘e sleat
    We makken fjoer do seachst dyn eagen t
    Fjouwer oeren seidest neat
    Ik wol hjir bliuwe seidest ta beslt

    Want dat lytse hert wol it leafst noch dizze dei
    t ‘e std en mei de fgels mei

    As hy sliept is hy d’r wer
    Yn syn dreamen nimt de wyn him mei
    Sjocht hy al syn freonen wer
    As hy hjir is is hy fgelfrij

    Hi,

    I don't really know Frisian, but I am somewhat familiar with it because of other Frisian songs, and because the language is close to English. I did the best I could with the help of some online dictionaries, but I suppose some parts are not correct.

    Nice song, thanks for sharing.

    Twarres - Free as a Bird

    Do sjochst eltse dei omheech
    You look up every day
    Wolst sa graach mei alle fgels mei
    You want so willingly to be with all the birds
    Do hearst stimmen t 'e steech
    You hear voices from the street
    Mar se sizze net watst heare wolst
    But they don't say what you want to hear

    Want dat lytse hert wol it leafst noch dizze dei
    Because that little heart wants the kindest still this day
    t 'e std en mei de fgels mei
    From the city and with the birds

    As hy sliept is hy d'r wer
    As he sleeps he is there again
    Yn syn dreamen nimt de wyn him mei
    In his dreams he takes the wind with him
    Sjocht hy al syn freonen wer
    He already sees his friends again
    As hy hjir is is hy fgelfrij
    As he is here, he is free as a bird

    Do fongst de fisken t 'e sleat
    You catch the fish from the creek
    We makken fjoer do seachst dyn eagen t
    We make fire, you saw from your eyes
    Fjouwer oeren seidest neat
    Four hours you said nothing
    Ik wol hjir bliuwe seidest ta beslt
    I want to stay here, you said your decision

    Want dat lytse hert wol it leafst noch dizze dei
    Because that little heart wants the kindest still this day
    t 'e std en mei de fgels mei
    From the city and with the birds

    As hy sliept is hy d'r wer
    As he sleeps he is there again
    Yn syn dreamen nimt de wyn him mei
    In his dreams he takes the wind with him
    Sjocht hy al syn freonen wer
    He already sees his friends again
    As hy hjir is is hy fgelfrij
    As he is here, he is free as a bird

    Thank you very much! I would have maybe translated that part "yn syn dreamen nimt de wyn him mei" as
    "in his dreams the wind takes him with" if there is any difference.
    But yes, your translation seems to be perfectly correct (in my opinion), so thank you once more!
