By the storytellers of Silver Hub, St. Vincent de Paul
They're at school - in the football ground
They're at the beach - Mellieha or B'Bugia
One of them has something in his hand -
He said ' In this one or that one ?'
They're about to fist fight
I don't think so.
They're fighting about the ball.
John and Derek or Tm and Frans
There are 4 boys
They're tossing a coin to see who will commence play
They will become footballers when they grow up - perhaps a boxer
They will make peace and become friends
Those are Seaman - about the same age
Seaman like me
They're 6 and 8 years old - maybe twins
One of them was making sand castle and the other trampled over them
They dream about their football - grey or creme coloured
They dream of becoming Captains on the Supply Ship - on the Queen's Boat
They like fried snack food - Chips
They're by the sea for an icecream
Maltese bread with tomato paste and capers..
They're on holiday - they're wearing light
Or he felt hot and took his clothes off
The tall one will win - he will win over the other
The two are watching them
The one at the back is watching closely what happens
Perhaps they'll make Peace - that's the most important
Fl-iskola , fil-ground tal Futbol
At the beach - Mellieħa jew B'Bugia
Wieħed għandu xi haġa f'idejħ-
Qalli 'jew ġo din jew ġo dan?'
Qegħdin ha jiġġieldu
Le ma naħsibx
Ha jiġġieldu fuq il-ballun.
John u Derek jew Tim u Frans
Hemm 4 subien
Qegħdin jaqtaw min ser jibda l-logħba.
Isiru futballers meta jikbru jew Boxer
Jaghmlu paċi u jsiru ħbieb.
Dawk Seaman - jidhru ndaqs.
Seaman bħali (leli)
Għandhom 6 jew 8 snin - jista jkun li huma twins.
Wieħed kien qed jagħmel kastelli tar-ramel u l-ieħor ghaffiġulu
Joħolmu fuq xi ballun - gris jew kaffelatte
Joholmu li jsiru kaptani fuq xi frejgata (Supply Ship)
- Fuq il-vapuri tar-Regina.
Iħobbu jieklu xi haġa ta' qali - (snack food)-
Hdejn il-baħar, xi ġelat
xi ħobża bil-kunserva u l-kappar.
Kienet vaganza - Imqaċtin
Jew hass is-sħana u neża kollox
It-twil ser jirbaħ - jegħleb lil ieħor
it - tnejn iħarsu lejhom.
Ta' wara jistenna jara ser jiġri...
Forsi jagħmlu paci - Dik l-aqwa
