IES Toki Ona BHI

We're students from Bortziriak "5 villages" and we'd like to meet new friends from other countries and share with them our passion for music.
Our school is in Bera ( Bera de Bidasoa in Navarre). It's the local secondary school (around 380 students aged from 12 to 20). Most of us study every subject in "Euskara" as we live in a Basque-speaking area. We also learn Spanish because we're bilingual and French and English as foreign languages.
For the last 10 years, our school along with many others in Navarre has been taking part in end-of-school-year concerts where more than 150 students take part.

This is our first recording. We've chosen "HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE RAIN" by John Forgerty. We've sung in English and then translated it into Basque. I hope you'll enjoy the 2 versions...We've added the lyrics in both languages so you can sing them!

We'd like to thank all the students involved in the recording, editing, the technicians and the audience!






Have you ever seen the rain in English

Someone told me long ago

there is a calm before the storm, I know;

its been comin for some time.

When its over, so they say,

itll rain a sunny day,I know;

shining down like water.

I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?

I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?

Coming down on a sunny day?

Yesterday, and days before,

sun is cold and rain is hard, I know;

been that way for all my time.

till forever, on it goes

through the circle, fast and slow, I know;

it cant stop, I wonder.

I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?

I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?

Coming down on a sunny day?

Have you ever seen the rain in Basque

Norbaitek esan zidan

barea ekaitzean, dakit

datorrela noizbehinka

Amaitzean diote

egun eguzkitsuan, dakit

ur disdiraz bezala

Jakin nahi dut, euria ikusi duzun

jakin nahi dut, euria ikusi duzun

eguzki eguna dator

Atzo baino lehenago

eguzki hotza euria, gogor

nirean etengabe, badoa betirako

azkar mantxo borobil, dakit

geldi ezin pentsatuz

Jakin nahi dut, euria ikusi duzun

Jakin nahi dut, euria ikusi duzun

eguzki eguna dator
