Translations of the best Spanish, French and German pop and rock songs

AHORA ESTOY SOLA By LAS CHIC’S November 15, 2013

Where are the Spanish and Latin American girl groups from the 1960s? I have found disappointingly few so far.

However, from Mexico here are Las Chic’s. The apostrophe in their name may seem meaningless now, but I guess it was achingly hip and ‘English’ at the time. This is their delightful version of ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’, originally a hit in 1967 for Tommy James & The Shondells. The Spanish lyrics don’t bear much relation to the original ones, so I’ve translated them back into English.

Here is some more information about Las Chic’s (in Spanish):

The song is included on a compilation by Fuzzy Daddy:

Los Hitters, another Mexican group, also recorded a version, ‘Ahora Estoy Solo’.

AHORA ESTOY SOLA

 .

¿Que voy hacer?

porque ya se que no me quieres

¿Que más puedo hacer?

si todos mis sueños se fueron

 .

Y eso que no puede ser

y que tienes que volver

no, no puede ser,

no puedo más

y cuando menos lo pensaba

todo fue a terminar entre los dos

 .

ESTRIBILLO:

Ahora estoy sola

Y sin tu cariño

no tengo nada

 .

Recordaré

tantas promesas que hicimos

y viviré

pensando solo en tu cariño

 .

Y eso que no puede ser

y que tienes que volver

no, no puede ser,

no puedo más

y cuando menos lo pensaba

todo fue a terminar entre los dos

 .

ESTRIBILLO

NOW I’M ALONE

 .

What can I do?

Now that I know you don’t love me

What more can I do?

If all my dreams have gone

 .

This cannot be

And you have to return

No, no it can’t be,

I can’t take anymore

And when I least though that

Everything between us was going to end

 .

CHORUS:

Now I’m alone

And without your love

I don’t have anything

 .

I will remember

All those promises we made

And I will live

Thinking only about your love

 .

This cannot be

And you have to return

No, no it can’t be,

I can’t take anymore

And when I least though it

Everything ended between us

 .

CHORUS
