This time we go in the other direction, with a translation into Spanish of an 80s hit by the British group Madness. This song is often used in classes to teach English as a foreign language.

OUR HOUSE

Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs
Sister's sighing in her sleep
Brother's got a date to keep
He can't hang around

CHORUS:
Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our ...

Our house it has a crowd
There's always something happening
And it's usually quite loud
Our mum
she's so house-proud
Nothing ever slows her down
And a mess is not allowed

CHORUS

(Something tells you that
you've got to get away from it)

Father gets up late for work
Mother has to iron his shirt
Then she sends the kids to school
Sees them off with a small kiss
She's the one they're going to miss
In lots of ways

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
I remember way back then
when everything was true and when
We would have such a very good time
such a fine time
Such a happy time
And I remember how we'd play
simply waste the day away
Then we'd say
nothing would come between us
two dreamers

GO BACK TO THE BEGINNING

FINAL CHORUS
Our house,
was our castle and our keep
Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, that was where we used to sleep
Our house, in the middle of our street
NUESTRA CASA

Padre lleva su traje de los domingos
Madre está cansada, necesita un descanso
Los niños dan guerra en la planta baja
Mi hermana suspira mientras duerme
Mi hermano tiene que ir a una cita
Él no puede demorarse

ESTRIBILLO:
Nuestra casa, en medio de nuestra calle
Nuestra casa, en medio de nuestra calle
Nuestra casa, en medio de nuestra calle
Nuestra casa, en medio de nuestra ... 

Nuestra casa tiene mucha gente
Siempre pasa algo
Y normalmente es bastante ruidoso
A nuestra madre
le gusta tener la casa impecable
Nada le frena
Y el desorden, no se permite 

ESTRIBILLO

(Algo te dice que
tienes que alejarte de la)

Padre se levanta tarde por su trabajo
Madre tiene que planchar su camisa
Luego envia a los nińos a la escuela
Les despide con un besito
Ella es a la que van a echar de menos
De muchas maneras

ESTRIBILLO 

PUENTE:
Recuerdo que en aquellos tiempos,
cuando todo era verdad y cuando
Disfrutabamos tanto
un tiempo buenisimo
Un tiempo tan feliz
Y recuerdo como jugábamos
pasabamos ociosamente todo el día
Entonces decíamos que
por nada nos separaremos
dos sońadores 

VOLVER A PRINCIPIO 

ESTRIBILLO FINAL
Nuestra casa,
era nuestro castillo y nuestra torre
Nuestra casa, en medio de nuestra calle
Nuestra casa, era donde dormíamos
Nuestra casa, en medio de nuestra calle
