lyrics

Em um wok (Dentro un wok) (In a wok)
‘Spiração (Ispirazione) (Inspiration)
Então (Allora) (Therefore)
Quer sair, não (Vuole uscirne) (He wants to leave)
Não pode voar (Non può volare) (He can’t fly)
Fora pra natal (Fuori per natale) (Home for christmas)
Em Curaçao (A Curaçao) (In Curaçao)

Bocejar “pow” com vontade dela; sapa... (Sbadigliare “pow” con voglia di lei; la rospa)
(He yawns “pow” and yearns for her… girl-frog)

Ele quer sem poder (Lui vuole senza poter) (He wants to but can’t)

Ele quer fazer (Lui vuole fare) (He wants to do it)

Neste wok ta calentando (In questo wok che si sta riscaldando) (This wok is getting hot)
Neste wok quer walk away (Da questo wok vuole andarsene) (He wants to walk away from this wok)

Tem tantas coisas ainda que ele quer ver (Ci sono ancora tante cose che vuole vedere) (He’s still got tons of things to see)

Danzar e fazer cantar e pular (Ballare e fare, cantare e saltare) (Dance and make, sing and jump around)
E se dar e amar e chorar... (E dare se stesso e amare e piangere) (And give himself in, love and cry)

Ele quer sem poder (Lui vuole senza poter) (He wants to but can’t)

Ele quer fazer (Lui vuole fare) (He wants to do it)

Neste wok ta calentando (In questo wok che si sta riscaldando) (This wok is getting hot)
Neste wok quer walk away (Da questo wok vuole andarsene) (He wants to walk away from this wok)
Tem tantas coisas ainda que ele quer ver!
Tem tantas coisas ainda que ele quer ver (Ci sono ancora tante cose che vuole vedere) (He’s still got tons of things to see)

Seja como for, o sapo sabe tudo transformar (Sia come sia, il rospo sa che tutto si trasforma) (Be that as it may, the frog knows that everything is in constant transformation)

E que quem lhe come em um wok (E chi lo mangia in un wok) (And that whomever gobbles him up from the wok)

Va tranportar em um viagem (Sarà trasportato in un viaggio) (Will be taken on a journey)

about

Ou Seattle, Washington

OU: 'egg' in Sardinia.
OU is amongst us. Spotted at the circus, in a jazz club, in line at a mall during Christmastime, singing and laughing with a group of pygmies, partaking in a Thai cooking class. OU waits with psychedelic calm to show its contents, sound and motion. It's here, still floating in its simple form, full of energy and ready for a deep conversation with all beings on this planet. ... more
