The Cup of Life.

18 Mar

Do you really want it?
Do you really want it?
Do you really want it?
Go, go, go, ale, ale, ale
Go, go, go, ale, ale, ale
Go, go, go, here we go, yeah

The cup of life, this is the one
Now is the time, don’t ever stop
Push it along, gotta be strong
Push it along, right to the top

Como Cain y Abel, es un partido cruel [Like Cain and Abel, it’s a ruthless game]
Tienes que pelear, por una estrella [You have to fight for a star]
Consigue con honor, la copa del amor [Get with honor, the cup of love]
Para sobrevivir y luchar por ella [To survive and fight for it]
Luchar por ella(Yeah) [Fight for it]
Do you really want it(Yeah)

Here we go! Ale, ale, ale
Go, go, go! Ale, ale, ale
Arriba va! El mundo esta de pie
Go, Go, Go! Ale, ale, ale

La vida es, competicion [Life is a competition]
Hay que sonar, ser campeon [You have to dream, to be a champion]
La copa es, la bendicion [The cup is the blessing]
La ganaras, go, go, go [Go for the win]

And when you feel the heat
The world is at your feet
No one can hold you down
If you really want it
Just steal your destiny
Right from the hands of fate
Reach for the cup of life
‘Cause your name is on it
Do you really want it(Yeah)
Do you really want it(Yeah)

Tu y yo! Ale, ale, ale
Go, go,go! Ale, ale, ale
Tonight’s the night, we’re gonna celebrate
The cup of life, ale, ale, ale

The cup of life, this is the one
Now is the time, don’t ever stop
Push it along, gotta be strong
Push it along, right to the top

Como Cain y Abel, es un partido cruel
Tienes que pelear, por una estrella
Consigue con honor, la copa del amor
Para sobrevivir y luchar por ella
Luchar por ella(Yeah)
Do you really want it(Yeah)

Here we go! Ale, ale, ale
Go, go, go! Ale ale ale
Arriba va! El mundo esta de pie
Go, Go, Go! Ale, ale, ale
Un, dos, tres, ale, ale, ale
Un, deux, trois, ale, ale, ale

I think everyone would know this song as 1998’s official song for FIFA World Cup France! ^^ Oh, the days when Ricky Martin looked so young and was super good-looking.. *swoons*
And yes, of course I know it’s not World Cup season now hahaha, and that it’s actually next year!

Anyway, it so happened that I was plugged into Kiss92FM when I was studying during my long break on Friday, and this song came up. Somehow or other, I got hooked onto it, and I decided to look up the lyrics.. And I realized that it’s a mixture of Spanish of English!

Curiosity drove me to Google translate the Spanish lyrics, and boy was I mind-blown when I saw the translations! Talk about a total epiphany and revelation, seriously.

I never in my life would have realized that there was a Bible reference in the lyrics – the past about Cain and Abel! And also, the 2nd part of the lyrics spoke out greatly to me.

Life’s a competition, you’ve to dream to be a champion, we must go for the win to achieve the cup of blessings. And if we really want it, we must reach out for it from the hands of fate, to control our own destiny.
So, so true. Made me motivated too!

It kind of made me consider the probability of learning Spanish too, since the language itself is beautiful. And actually traveling there 1 day. There’s something about the Latinos, Spanish and Columbian people that look incredible – how they can look so sexy/lean/confident/exotic is something beyond me :O Think Jennifer Lopez, Shakira.. Oh and Ricky Martin hails from Pueto Rico in case you all might not know!
