Aha! La table.
La table ha sufriedo ponderosa mente en las manos de piratas.
La table ha sufriedo ponderosa mente en las manos de piratas.

Ah, there’s the table!
(translation unclear)

Donde esta mis silla de los hermanos?

Where is the chair of my brother?
Where is the chair of my brother?

Facts:

  • The story of The Furniture / Los Muebles is a traditional northern Spanish sea shanty from the Asturias region.
  • It tells a tale of how a disfunctional family of linguistically challenged fishermen lost and then found some furniture following a flood, and the consequences.
  • Linguistically challenged means, in this case, they were not terribly bright and could not even speak their own language very well.
  • The Spanish version has been loosely translated into English by The Bastard Sons of Dennis.
  • From an idea by Daniel Richardson.
  • This song and its anomalies of translation make a great teaching aid, if one happens to have students learning English or Spanish.
