Belle

This is a song by Jack Johnson entitled 'Belle'. I really like how he uses 5 different languages in this remarkably short lyrics.The following are the original lyrics as well as the translation which I believe is true to the best of my knowledge.

Oi Lienda
Bella que fa?
Bonita, bonita que tal?
But belle
Je ne comprends pas français
So you'll have to speak to me
Some other way


1: Hello, beautiful. (portuguese)
2: Beautiful, what are you doing? (italian)
3: Beautiful, beautiful, how are you? (spanish)
4: I do not understand French (french)
5: So you'll have to speak to me (english)
6: In some other way. (english)
