Someone is looking for the English translation of the Visayan song Usahay (sometimes), so here goes…
First, you can hear Vina Morales sing her rendition of “Usahay”:
And here’s the translation into English of the song Usahay…
Usahay – Sometimes
Nakadamgo ako – I had a dream,
Nga ikaw ug ako – that you and I
Nagkahigugma-ay – fell in love.
Nganong damguhon ko ikaw? – Why do I dream of you?
Damguhon sa kanunay – I dream (of you) often
sa akong kamingaw. – in my loneliness.
Usahay, nagamahay ako – Sometimes, I regret…
Ngano’ng nabuhi pa – Why was I even born
Ning kalibutan – here in this world?
Ngano’ng gi tiaw-tiawan – Why do you belittle
Ang gugma ko kanimo – my love for you,
Male version: Kanimo, ‘day – for you, Inday (young lass)
Female version: Kanimo, da – for you (da – expression of emphasis)
Anyway, listen to more Visayan songs here.
