Lost in Translation: I Don’t Wanna be a Crappy Housewife [LYRICS BELOW VIDEO]

Posted by on June 6, 2011 at 8:05 am

Hi, my name is Tonje. I’m a little pretty girl trapped inside a grown ups body!

*sigh* This little gem, I Don’t Wanna be a Crappy Housewife, comes at you straight from Norway by Tonje Langeteig. I’m sure English is not their first language or really even used, to me it sounds like the lyrics were translated into English using Google Translate or Babelfish. The song is not as catchy as Friday but it has that whole club thing going for it and even some crappy rap lyrics like “you woke up one morning and thought you were young, but no no no your youth was gone, you dont wanna be a crappy housewife no, thats why right now to the disco you go…

Ok, actually the more I listen to this, and I’ve listed to it like five times now, I really don’t wanna be a crappy housewife. God dammit I can’t get the song out of my head now! If you want to feel my pain click play!

I Don’t Wanna be a Crappy Housewife Lyrics

Tonje
Hi, my name is Tonje
I’m a little pretty girl
trapped inside a grown ups body

I woke up one morning and I thought I was young
but no no no my youth was gone
I don’t wanna be a crappy housewife
that’s why right now to the disco I go

Chorus x4 (Tonje)
I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be
a crappy housewife

Tonje
I just wanna live a glamorous life
no way I’m gonna be a crappy housewife
when I’m six feet under, when I’m dead
I don’t want dirt on me but makeup instead

Chorus x4 (Tonje)
I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be
a crappy housewife

Rap Verse
Uh, uh
Oh come on
yeah oh
Lets go

You woke up one morning and thought you were young
but no no no your youth was gone
you don’t wanna be a crappy housewife no
that’s why right now to the disco you go
when you’re six feet under
when you are dead
you don’t want dirt on you but makeup instead

Chorus (Tonje)
I don’t wanna be…
I don’t wanna be, I don’t wanna be
a crappy housewife

Rap Verse
You just wanna live a glamorous life
no way you’re gonna be A CRAPPY HOUSEWIFE

Chorus x2 (Tonje)
I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be
a crappy housewife

Don't Keep This a
Secret, Share It

    It is a dangerously addictive song.  Much like Rebecca Black’s Friday!  Maybe in 20 years, they will both be on a “one hit wonders” album lol!

    This woman is a shame for the people in Norway. We start learning English in school when we are 6 years old, and i bet my nine year old sister can sing with a better English than in this video. If you want to get a better impression on how our English is in norway, you should try and search on Nora Foss-Al Jabri. She’s 15-16 years old, and her english is a LOT better than this crap. I’m a fifteen year old girl from Norway myself, and I am pretty close to being a fluent english speaker.
