E SE... — Como Digo em Inglês?

E SE, COMO, FALAR, DIZER, INGLÊS
Durante uma conversação, a forma “e se...” costuma ser usada para apresentar uma possibilidade. A forma que utilizamos em inglês é “what if...”.

Ex.: What if it goes wrong? E se der errado?

Nos anos 90 foi lançada a música “One of Us” escrita por Eric Bazilian (do The Hooters) e originalmente lançada por Joan Osborne. Nessa canção há a famosa parte “what if God was one of us” [E se Deus fosse um de nós]



If God had a name what would it be?
And would you call it to his face?
If you were faced with Him in all His glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?

Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' to make his way home?

If God had a face what would it look like?
And would you want to see, if seeing meant
That you would have to believe in things like heaven
And in Jesus and the saints, and all the prophets?

Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' to make his way home?

Tryin' to make his way home?

Back up to heaven all alone
Nobody calling on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' to make his way home?
Like a holly rolling stone

Back up to heaven all alone
No, just tryin' to make his way home
Nobody calling on the phone
Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome
