С нами снова разбор песен! Для позитивного месяца мы разбираем позитивную песню “Хакуна Матата” :) 

Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata! Ain’t no passing craze 
It means no worries for the rest of your days 
It’s our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata! 

Hakuna Matata?
Yeah. It’s our motto!
What’s a motto?
Nothing. What’s a-motto with you? 
Those two words will solve all your problems (That’s right)

Take Pumbaa here
Why, when he was a young warthog
When I was a young wart hog
Very nice
Thanks 

He found his aroma lacked a certain appeal
He could clear the savannah after every meal 

I’m a sensitive soul though I seem thick-skinned
And it hurt that my friends never stood downwind
And oh, the shame
He was ashamed
Thought of changin’ my name
What’s in a name?
And I got downhearted
How did ya feel?
Everytime that I…
Hey! Pumbaa! Not in front of the kids!
Oh. Sorry 

Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata! Ain’t no passing craze
It means no worries for the rest of your days
It’s our problem-free philosophy 

Hakuna Matata!

motto: ˈmɒtəʊ: девиз 
warthog: ˈwɔːthɒɡ: бородавочник
aroma: əˈrəʊmə: аромат, запах
appeal: əˈpiːl привлекательность
savannah: səˈvænə саванна
thick-skinned: ˈθɪk skɪnd: невосприимчивый к критике, бесчувственный
ashamed: əˈʃeɪmd совестно, стыдно
to be downhearted: tə bi ˌdaʊnˈhɑːtɪd унывать, падать духом


ain’t no passing craze:

  • ain’t: неформальное выражение “is not/am not/are not”.
  • craze: мания, повальное увлечение
  • passing:  проходящий, мимолетный

В сумме это дает выражение “это не просто мимолетная мания”. 

no worries: никаких проблем/беспокойств

for the rest of your days: до конца ваших/твоих дней, всю оставшуюся жизнь.

problem-free: конструкцию -free можно использовать при указании на отсутствие чего-либо. Например, в этом контексте, problem-free можно перевести как “без проблем”. Эту фразу можно часто встретить в пище: например, gluten-free (без глютена). Другие слова - pain-free (без боли, не причиняющий боль), accident-free (безаварийный)… 

Writing scholarship (deleting this soon, don't worry)

Hey guys! So today was my senior awards and I just wanted to share some exciting news with you all!! My school gives away a 300 dollar book scholarship to the senior who writes the best essay on what our school motto, “Enter to Learn; Leave to Serve” means to them and I WON! The names were removed from the essay so it wouldn’t be biased, and the teacher that presented the scholarship said mine was the most personal and well written! I’m only sharing this with you guys because I think all those hours of writing imagines instead of doing school work finally payed off! 😂😂❤️
