Marijen-Aleksandra / Marianne-Alexandra

! This post was written long ago. What you're reading is not necessarily how I feel about things in 2016. This blog was started by an 18-year-old in 2001. Please, keep that in mind before you freak out.

This is an imaginary conversation with Marianne-Alexandra. By the way, my parents' names are Mirjana (but everyone calls her Marijana O_o) and Aleksandar. Oh, the confusion. The answer lies within someone slightly older than them and if you don't like that someone, I don't understand you. Kudos to him.

The lala and nyanya thing comes from a song that I thought was about my paternal grandmother, whom I first called Njanja and then, after she got offended by the song comparison, Nana. This is the said song. Basically, the singer tells a female that she should not be nyanya and that it's better if she's lala.

Taj starac uvek zvuči isto!

Da, tako je, Mari-Aleks,
da, tako je, pa šta?
Ima dana kad volim svoju tugu,
imam dana kad sam sam i srećna,
a ti, Mari-Aleks?

Volim da budem srećna,
volim da budem srećna,
ćik-a-čik-a-go-go!
Čik-a-čik-a-go-go!
Taj starac uvek preuzima krivicu!

Da, tako je, Mari-Aleks,
da, tako je, a zašto ne bi?
Ima dana kad volim svoj ambis,
ima dana kad je duboko novo plitko,
a ti, Mari-Aleks?

Volim da budem srećna,
volim da budem srećna,
ćik-a-čik-a-go-go!
Čik-a-čik-a-go-go!
Taj starac me deprimira, baš kao i ti,
nisi bogzna kako lala,
ali si zato baš njanja,
toliko se trudiš da u svemu bude smisla,
toliko se trudiš da sve bude intenzivno,
to niko ne voli.
Devojke treba da budu srećne.

Tako znači?
Uh. Uh. Uh.
No, naposletku, ti se zoveš Mari-Aleks,
a moje ime je manje-više nečuveno.

Eeeeeee....?

That old man always sounds the same!

Yes, he does, Mari-Alex,
Yes, he does, so what?
Some days, I like my sorrow.
Some days, I can be happy, too,
Mari-Alex, how about you?

I like to be happy,
I like to be happy,
Chic-a-chic-a-go-go!
Chic-a-chic-a-go-go!
That old man always takes the blame!

Yes, he does, Mari-Alex,
Yes, he does, and why shouldn't he?
Some days, I like my inner abbys,
Some days, deep is the new shallow,
Mari-Alex, what about you?

I like to be happy,
I like to be happy,
Chic-a-chic-a-go-go!
Chic-a-chic-a-go-go!
That old man makes me sad and so do you,
You're not much of a lala,
You're a lot of nyanya,
You are trying so hard to make sense,
You are trying so hard to be intense,
Nobody likes that.
Girls should be cute and happy.

That's what it is?
Uh. Uh. Uh.
But, in the end, your name is Mari-Alex,
And my name's more or less unheard of.

Eeeeeee....?
