Burma Shave

  1. Toughest
    Whiskers
    In the town
    We hold 'em up
    You mow 'em down
    Burma-Shave.
    Féasóg is crua
    i mbaile
    togann muid suas é
    lomann tú sios é
    Burma-bearradh.



    Féasóg beard

    Should verbs be in the present or the future tense in the Irish versions?


  2. Henry the Eighth
    Sure had
    Trouble
    Short-term wives
    Long-term stubble
    Burma-Shave.
    Bhí trioblóid
    ag Henry
    an t-ochtú
    mná céile ghearrthéarma
    coinleach fadtéarmach
    Burma-bearradh.




  3. Speed
    Was high
    Weather was not
    Tires were thin
    X marks the spot
    Burma-Shave.
    Bhí
    luas ard
    Ní raibh aimsir
    Bhí boinn tanaí
    léiríonn X an láthair
    Burma-bearradh.




  4. The hero
    Was brave and strong
    And willin'
    She felt his chin--
    Then wed the villain
    Burma-Shave.
    Bhí an laoch
    cróga agus láidir
    agus fonnmhar
    thadhaill sí a smig —
    phós sí ansin an cladaire
    Burma-bearradh.




  5. Late Risers
    Shave in just
    2 minutes flat
    Kiss your wife
    Grab your hat
    Burma-Shave.
    Daoine a dhuiseacht go déanach
    bhearr siad
    i díreach dhá nóiméad
    póg do bhean
    sciob do hata
    Burma-bearradh.




  6. All these years
    Your skin
    Has dried
    Why not moisten
    Up your hide
    Burma-Shave.
    Triomaíodh
    do chraiceann
    gach bliana seo
    Cén fath nach maothaigh
    do sneithe
    Burma-bearradh.




  7. Grandpa knows
    It ain't too late
    He's gone
    To git
    Some widder bait
    Burma-Shave.

    é imithe
    bhaoite do bhaintreacha
    le fáil
    Burma-bearradh.





  8. Your beauty, boys
    Is just
    Skin deep
    What skin you've got
    You ought to keep
    Burma-Shave.
    A bhuachaillí,
    Níl bhur n-ailleacht ach
    domhain craicinn

    an craiceann atá agat
    ba chóir duit a choinneáil
    Burma-bearradh.



    an craiceann atá agat your skin “the skin that you have” ←
    “the skin that is at you”

  9. As you Journey
    Down the years
    Your mirror is
    The glass that cheers
    If you use
    Burma-Shave.
    Mar atá tú ag taisteal
    síos na blianta
    Is é do scáthán
    an ghloine a mhisniú
    má úsáideann tú
    Burma-bearradh.




  10. Don't
    Try passing
    On a slope
    Unless you have
    A periscope
    Burma-Shave.

    ar claon
    mura bhfuil peireascóp
    agat
    Burma-bearradh.




  11. Little Bo-Peep
    Has lost her Jeep
    It struck
    A truck
    When she went to sleep
    Burma-Shave.
    Chaill Bo-Peep beag
    a Síp
    Bhuail sí
    leoraí
    nuair a thit sí i na codladh
    Burma-bearradh.




  12. The hobo
    Lets his
    Whiskers sprout
    It's trains--not girls
    That he takes out
    Burma-Shave.
    Ligeann
    an hobo
    a féasóg ag fás
    siúil sé amach le traenacha,
    ní cailíní.
    Burma-bearradh.




  13. The poorest guy
    In the
    Human race
    Can have a
    Million dollar face
    Burma-Shave.
    Is féidir
    leis an fhear is boichte
    sa chine daonna
    aghaidh milliún dollar
    a bhfuil
    a bheidh aige

    Burma-bearradh.




  14. Angels
    Who guard you
    When you drive
    Usually
    Retire at 65
    Burma-Shave.

    a ghardálann tú
    nuair a tá tú ag tiomáint

  15. If you have
    A double chin
    You've two
    Good reasons

    chúis mhaith agat
    tá sé in am a úsáid
    Burma-bearradh.
