Translation of one song

Postby cegiela » 2008-01-22, 18:56

Hello everyone!

This time I'd like to ask for a Hawaiian translation of this song.
The text to be translated is:

I am an atomic waste

No one loves me
No one likes me
No one respects me
No one wants me

I am ugly
I am disgusting
I am hideous
I am dirty


I'd be cordially thankful also for an IPA transcription, if it is not a problem for you.

Darn, I'm no good at IPA. Sorry :(. Thanks for the link to your website. Here is how I would translate the song:

He haumia ‘ākoma au
‘a‘ohe mea nāna au e aloha
‘a‘ohe mea nāna au e makemake
‘a‘ohe mea nāna au e mahalo
‘a‘ohe mea nāna au e ‘i‘ini

Pupuka au
Ho‘opailua au
Pupuka ha‘alele loa au
Lepo au


Other opinions/versions of the translation are welcome. :D
