    3 sentences!

    Hello everybody!

    My Russian's been a little rusty for a while so I thought I'd translate a silly song in order to get it flowing again!

    I picked up a song called Голая, I have no idea whether it's famous or not, but anyway! Overall I can understand it pretty well, but there are a few doubts here and there. Such as:


    1) Нравится мне, когда ты голая по квартире ходишь и несомненно заводишь

    The verb заводить makes me a little unsure of the meaning of the sentence. Can I think of it as начать водить or is there another meaning to it?


    2) Я сам себе поставить банки сумею

    I understand the words, but... what?!


    3) Нравится мне не замечать расстояний, когда безумно так тянет

    Once again the words seem familiar but I'm still unsure. Is тянет a trailer or something?


    Well, well... this is it for now,
    thanks for your attention!

    Here "заводить" means "to turn on".

    2) Я сам себе поставить банки сумею

    Not as popular nowadays as it was several decades ago. The memory still remains.

    3) Нравится мне не замечать расстояний, когда безумно так тянет

    Here it is obviously about ATTRACTION.

    "и несомненно заводишь" - это означает, что у него по этому поводу возникает сексуальное желание, что подтверждается якобы наступающей эрекцией.

    Hah, thanks Shady and Aurelian!

    The банки part would've been impossible to guess! So the verbs that go along with it are ставить / поставить...

    And lovely video btw, the kid seems to be having fun :P
