"I am never going to give you up."

Translation:not qalon.

"not qalon jIH. not qaquvHa'." rIQ aStlhay


Is there a better verb for let [someone] down?


There are probably a few ways to say something, and I think one of the ways to express something close to disappointing someone is to use {belHa'moH} "to displease"). But there are very few ways to say it in a way that can be sung to the tune. Just gave it yet another go, which might be a bit closer to the goal.
