So, a week ago I challenged myself to translate one of the best songs ever into farÿ glysa. Well, I did it. It's singable if you try hard enough, lol! (Syllable count is a bit more than off in some parts) The song in farÿ will come first, then a literal, word-for-word translation, and then the actual lyrics. Without further ado, here is Behÿmÿan Rhapsydÿ, as the fae would say. ;)
Ena ashÿa gÿmatÿ?

Is this real?
Is this fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escaping reality.
Open your eyes,
Look to the sky and see...
I'm a mere peasant, I don't need sympathy.
Because I'm easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low.
Any path the wind chooses has no effect on me...
Mother, I killed him.
Placed my hand on him,
Drained his life, he's dead.
Mother, life only started,
But now I've thrown it all away.
Tears were an accident.
If I don't return tomorrow,
As if nothing happened.
Too late, my time arrives.
It sends shivers down my side,
My body aches forever.
Farewell, all, I must go.
Must leave you all and face the truth.
I wish not for death,
I wish I had never been born.
I see a man's silhouette.
Boastful coward, boastful coward, dance for me.
Thunder and lightning, terrifying, oh!
Galileo, Galileo, Galileo,
Galileo Figaro- Fantastic!
I'm a mere peasant, nobody loves me.
He's a peasant from a peasant family,
Spare him from this monster!
Easy come, easy go, won't you release me?
By the One! No, we won't release you. (Release him!)
By the One! We won't release you! (Release him!)
By the One! We won't release you! (Release me!)
Won't release you. (Release me!) Never!
Never release you. (Release me!)
Never release me, oh...
No, no, no, no, no, no, no!
Oh, my mother, my mother, my mother, release me!
Tyrus has an evil spirit for me,
You think you can scorn me?
You think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh, my love, can't do this, love.
I must leave, I must leave this place.
Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see.
Nothing really matters, nothing really matters to me.
Any path the wind chooses...
Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go
A little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me, to me
Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters
Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time
Goodbye everybody I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, ooo (anyway the wind blows)
I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all
I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do the fandango
Thunderbolt and lightning very very frightening me
Gallileo Figaro - magnifico
But I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy come easy go will you let me go
Bismillah! No we will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go let me go
Will not let you go let me go (never)
Never let you go let me go
Never let me go ooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me
So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh baby can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out just gotta get right outta here
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters nothing really matters to me
Anyway the wind blows
