Translation of a song in Tok Pisin

Hi,
I found this really nice song on youtube
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ap2gKNLOkbg

The lyrics in Tok Pisin are given, but I'm struggling to understand everything. I'll write my (clumsy) translation here and would be very thankful if somebody could correct my mistakes and fill in the gaps!

Trupla mahn yu wokabaut long bikpla nait
Honest (?) man you wander around at midnight

long painim mi, em orait
to look for me, it's alright

mi save long tingting blong yu, yeh
I know about your thoughts, yeah

nem bilong mi i 'bagarap'
my name is “ruin”

kos long yu ol I tok mi no kilia long 1 2 na 3
na ABC blong mi em reverse nambaut!

Na mi sem kos ol I tok yu dear tumas long mi!
I'm ashamed because all … you are very dear to me

Na yu ting olsem wanem long mi kam painim yu long bikpela nait
and you think … I come looking for you at midnight

mi abrusim ol kain biruwa
I avoid all kinds of

bikos mi laikim yu
because I love you

na mi painim yu
and I'm looking for you

You see, I really bagarapim this translation - can anybody help me?
Thanks,
Birgit

Hi,
I've already found somebody kind enough to do the translation (though not in this forum).
Regards,
Birgit
