    Hi everybody! I think somebody here already know me as the author of another kind of threads... now I need your help! You who speak english can help me... I want to translate the "intro speech" of the song "back in the saddle" from Aerosmith (one of my fav band..) live version that you can listen to clicking the following link (I can only understand "seventynine" and "magic morning"), please help me to understand what Steve said!:

    YouTube - 13 Back in the Saddle A Little South of Sanity


    Thank you very much! I hope you help me! :wink:

    Do you think Steve sang something other than the official lyrics that time? Or is it the slang double meanings you have trouble with? Aerosmith is known for that, of course...

    If you are referring to what he said in the intro, he says

    I got blisters on my sisters-- so, you like the new shit, do you like the old shit, where were you in seventy-eight? where the fuck were you in seventy nine? where were you? magic mountain baby, magic mountain. fuck yeah....

    no helga I was referring to the "intro" that is the words spoken before to start the true song.. and they sound like slang indeed and a bit too hard to understand for me..but a guy nicknamed Hickboy helped me and now,eventually, I know what are the the spoken words..though they still make no sense to me... but, ehy, that is steve slang I bet...

    Of course!



    From Hickboy:

    Quasi alla lettera:

    "I got blisters on my sisters!"
    (Ho ottenuto le bolle sulle mie sorelle!)

    "So you like the new shit, you like the old shit, where were you in '78?"
    (Così gradite la nuova merda, voi gradite la vecchia merda, in cui eravate in ' 78?)

    "Where the fuck were you in '79?"
    (Dove la (don't know the Italian word for 'fuck') era voi in ' 79?)

    "Where were you?"
    (Dove era voi?)

    "Magic Mountain, baby! Magic Mountain!"
    (Montagna magica, bambino! Montagna magica!)

    Sono spiacente per il italiano mio difettoso. Il Spagnolo mio è niente male, ma il italiano mio è povero.

    I can't totally understand the shades of english and american language and people so I apologize if I can look like an idiot sometimes... btw I only wanted to know the full phrase spoken from Steve 'cause I always liked that intro and I thought I had understood some different meanings...

    well, you already have the main intro. translated. i went to the back in the saddle clip and there is no intro. just the song being sung. maybe if you posted the specific clip you could get some help.

    I think Magic Mountain has something to do with being 'high' but that business about 1978 and 1979 is just a reference to their being a band who's been around for a long time. Blisters on his sisters? It sounds racy but I am not a guy so I will leave that one unexplained.
