LIVE PERFORMANCE:

OPINION:

“Say Na Na Na” kicks off with a Eurobeat 80’s-90’s pop soundtrack and maintains this throughout set against Serhat’s husky, sometimes monotone vocal. Great dance moves can be had from this song!

PREDICTION:

Despite the great classic feel to this pop deity, “Say Na Na Na” sadly doesn’t scream winner. It should pick up enough points to stay clear of the bottom, however.

LYRICS:

“Na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na

You look sad and lonely
Is something wrong tonight?
Why this rush to run away?
Things will be alright
Just be strong and look at me
Hear me when I say
Who cares that you’re out of love?
It happens every day

All your dreams will come your way
No matter what you do
Love all colors of this life
And to yourself, be true
Don’t forget my number
Call me anytime
I will always tell you life is beautiful and fine

Say na na na
On a doctor’s order please say na na na
There’s a light for you that waits, it’s na na na
Say na na na, say na na na
You’re not alone, so stand up, na na na
Be a hero, be the rainbow, and say na na na
Say na na na

Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na

All your dreams will come your way
No matter what you do (Tell me)
Love all colors of this life
And to yourself, be true (Is it true?)
Don’t forget my number
Call me anytime
I will always tell you life is beautiful and fine (Na na na)

Say na na na
On a doctor’s order please say na na na
There’s a light for you that waits, it’s na na na
Say na na na, say na na na
You’re not alone, so stand up, na na na
Be a hero, be the rainbow, and say na na na
Say na na na (Na na na)

If you’re feeling lonely (If you’re feeling lonely)
We can take it slowly (We can take it slowly)
Think I’m going crazy (Think I’m going crazy)
Yes, I’m going crazy
We can all go crazy
Bir, iki, üç

Say na na na
On a doctor’s order please say na na na
There’s a light for you that waits, it’s na na na
Say na na na, say na na na
You’re not alone, so stand up, na na na
Be a hero, be the rainbow, and say na na na
Say na na na”
