Ob-la-di, ob-la-da (The Beatles)

folder-blue-music-icon

Een klassiek lied van The Beatles dat nog steeds aanslaat in de bovenbouw van het basisonderwijs. Meestal laat ik het eerst een paar keer horen, daarna vertalen we samen de tekst en vervolgens kunnen de meeste kinderen het al aardig meezingen. Let ook op ’t feit dat in het laatste couplet Desmond en Molly worden omgedraaid. Een foutje tijdens de opname van Paul McCartney. De rest van The Beatles vond het wel grappig en daarom lieten ze het maar zo (zie Wikipedia).

Tekst
Desmond has his barrow in the market place…
Molly is the singer in a band…
Desmond says to Molly “Girl, I like your face”
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand…
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!…
Lala how the life goes on…
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!…
Lala how the life goes on.

Desmond takes a trolley to the jewelry store…
Buys a twenty carat golden ring…
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door…
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing…
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!…
Lala how the life goes on…
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!…
Lala how the life goes on.

In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home,
With a couple of kids running in the yard,
Of Desmond and Molly Jones… (Ha ha ha ha ha)

Happy ever after in the market place…
Desmond lets the children lend a hand…
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face…
And in the evening she still sings it with the band…
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!…
Lala how the life goes on…
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!…
Lala how the life goes on.

In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home,

And in the evening she’s a singer with the band…
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!…

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!…
Lala how the life goes on.
