DÅNDAN I PANDERETAS


FELIS PÅSGUAN NOCHEBUENA!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Because today the Old Testament prophecies concerning the Messiah have been fulfilled, I offer you this traditional Chamorro carol :

Dåndan i panderetas / na' fan palångpang
todo i profesia / esta monhåyan.
(Play the tambourines / make a noise with them
all the prophecies / have been fulfilled.)

Popble i patgon-ta / gi liyan Belen
ngåsan i ason-ña / kulan gå'ga' gue'.
(Our child is poor / in the cave of Bethelehm
he lies on straw / as if he were an animal.)

Popble i patgon-ta / nina' fotgon gue'
nu i lago' nåna / sa' tinangse gue'.
(Our child is poor / he is wet
from the tears of a mother / who cries for him.)

Hunggan, esta monhåyan!
(Yes, they are fulfilled!)


THE SPANISH ORIGINAL

Go the 1 minute mark to hear the Spanish original

 


Toquen las panderetas / ruido y más ruido!
Porque las profecías / ya se han cumplido!
(Play the tambourines / noise and more noise!
Because the prophecies / have now been fulfilled!)

Sí, sí, ya se han cumplido!
(Yes, yes, they are now fulfilled!)
