Fun With Spanish: Funny/Interesting sayings


Today’s funny expression is  “Darse una manita de gato” =  Use a  cat’s paw on oneself. Lol I’m laughing wondering what the first thing coming to mind for some readers is upon hearing this expression.  Well, here’s what this feline inspired saying is talking about : “Darse una manita de gato” means to make yourself look good. To freshen up, to make oneself presentable. Cat’s of course are synonymous with grooming and so the saying is pretty clear and makes plenty of sense.

USAGE: If a girl knows a guy she likes is coming by she might say “Me voy a dar una manita de gato” = I’m going to get pretty.  If a  girl said this on a date  that would mean she’s  going to check herself in the mirror and touch up.  If  someone was off to find a job and a friend told them  “Primero date una manita de gato” It would mean, make sure you look presentable before you walk out the door.

Ok dokster so hope that everyone enjoyed this interesting/funny expression and that you can have fun with it yourselves, cuz Spanish is always MegaSuper Chido!

Disclaimer: As always I apologize for my crappy spelling in Spanish and my lack of knowledge when it comes to  Alt Key codes for accents, I’m working on it =) It may not be perfect (the blog) but in my own little way I’m trying to share what I love and hoping others can enjoy it too.

LYRICS

(Announcer)Come on by, Stop on by! Don’t let them tell you about it, they could be lying.  Come see  first hand the one who lost his love for being a dope.

You  who thought I would die

When I saw you with a new mannequin

You  who thought I was going to mourn

And just look at me casually wandering this bar

You thought  that when u  said goodbye

I was going to go into a deep depression

Truth be told , you’re not all that for me to to be getting so emotional

You who thought I’d miss you

Now you pursue me non stop

You who bet that I would break, now come crawling at my feet

Like a gum without any flavor left my heart spit ya out

Please, Don’t look for me anymore

On my part, it’s all over

It was you who said goodbye

And now you come asking for my forgiveness

It was you who said goodbye

And now you come asking for my forgiveness

There’s no more engaments or performances

It’s the end of your Circus

There’s no more engagements or performances

It’s the end of your Circus

Yea, yea! It’s the end of your circus

Your clown like antics don’t make me laugh

I think it best for you to leave

I neither hold grudges against you, nor hallucinate about you

But understand this, there is nothing left

Like a gum without any flavor left my heart spit ya out

Please, Don’t look for me anymore

On my part, it’s all over

It was you who said goodbye

And now you come asking for my forgiveness

It was you who said goodbye

And now you come asking for my forgiveness

There’s no more engaments or performances

It’s the end of your Circus

There’s no more engagements or performances

It’s the end of your Circus

It’s over now

(Announcer)  “Come on by, come on by! Buy your ticket & Don’t miss out!  Come see the shattered love show!”

It was you who said goodbye

And now you come asking  for my forgiveness

It was you who said goodbye

And now you come asking for my forgiveness

There’s no more engaments or performances

It’s the end of your Circus

There’s no more engagements or performances

It’s the end of your Circus

YEA YEA, YOUR CIRCUS IS OVER, YO-UR CIR-CUS IS OVER YEAAA!  x2
