Ken Lee lyrics by Valentina Hasan

Garbled Version
No one ken to ken to sivmen,
nor yon clees toju maliveh.
When i gez aju zavateh na nalechoo more,
new yonooz tonigh molinigh,
Yon sorra shooo,
yes ee shooo, ooo.
-Ken leee
tulibu dibu douchoo
Ken Lee,
Ken lee meju more.
Ken Lee
tulibu dibu douchoo
Ken Lee,
Ken lee meju more

Proper English Version
No I can't forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
When I had you there but then I let you go
You always smile but in your eyes
your sorrow shows
Yes, it shows
Repeat this 2x:
I can't live
if living is without you
I can't live
I can't give anymore

A brief info about this song and the singer (Valentina Hasan):
Courtesy of

Ken Lee (correct pronunciation: "Can't live") is a garbled interpretation of the song "Without You", performed by Valentina Hasan (Bulgarian: Валентина Хасан), a contestant auditioning for the Bulgarian show Music Idol in February 2008.

Just prior to her audition for Music Idol (the Bulgarian version of the Idol series) Hasan informed the judges she intended to perform "the Mariah Carey song 'Ken Lee'." When she was corrected that the song was called "Without You", Hasan said, "No. It could be, [but] I am not sure." In the fan montages circulating in the internet, her performance was intercut with footage of an actual performance by Mariah Carey for ironic comparison. When she was asked what language was the song, she replied firmly that it was 'English', which she doesn't speak well.

Although she did not continue to the next round of the competition, a video of her performance was soon posted on the web where it became popular in Bulgaria and abroad. Hasan's extremely broken English, coupled with her yet undeveloped singing abilities, combined to great comic effect, and garnered the video over four million viewings in its first month on the video sharing website YouTube.
