Si Rudof

While at the mall today I was shocked, yet not surprised to be hearing Christmas music playing, even though it is still November. It was not comforting or exciting to be hearing Christmas music this early, but it did put me in the mood for some Chamorro Christmas songs, such as this one, a translation of the famous English holiday song “Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer.”

SI RUDOF

(Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer) Trinanslåda: J. Peredo

Rudof agaga’ i gui’eng-mu

lålamlam kada puengi,

ya kada ma attan i gui’eng-mu,

sigi hao di ma kasse,

todu i mangga’chong-mu,

sigi hao di ma kasse,

sa’ hågu ha’ nai na binådu,

sasahnge yan na’ma’se’.

Pues un chi’op na puengi,

måtto si Santa Klos,

ha faisen si Ru-dot-fu,

para u giha i karetan gigipu,

Manmagof todu i binådu,

ya ma guaiya ta’lo si Rudof,

put i gui’eng-ña ni kulot agaga’,

siempre ma onra hao gi manmamaila’.
