В учебнике Л.Г.Денисова «Английский язык. Интенсивный курс  «М.Просвещение»1999г. предлагается разучить с учениками некоторые из песен The beatles. Попробуйте! Как бы ни были хороши и любимы Вами эти песни ("Yellow submarin, When I'm sixty four"), первое, что вы услышите в ответ на свое предложение будет:

 

- Да кто их сейчас слушает!

 

Зачем бессмысленно преодолевать сопротивление?

 

- So what songs are you listening to now?

 

И предложить из имеющихся в наличии. Я стараюсь прослушивать коллекцию старшей дочери и, отметая попсу и диджеевские однообразные поползновения, иногда нахожу что-то интересное. Например:

 

 

 

Katy Perry "I kissed a girl",

 

Tanita Tikaram "Twist in my sobriety",

 

Ase of base "All that she wants" и Happy nation, 

 

Queen "The show must go on",

 

Britney Spears "Womanizer",

 

Groove Coverage  "God is a girl",

 

Animals  "The House of the Rising Sun" (Rising Sun Blues),

 

Jingle bells. Самая рождественская песня, в которой нет ни слова о Рождестве

Adele  - Rolling In The Deep

 

Steve Miller Band  - Abracadabra

 

Sonny & Cher  Little Man -1966

Часть ссылок ведёт на на новую страницу песен. Не пугайтесь.  Это

 

потому,что не все из моих любимых песен подходят для уроков.

 

Например Лили Ален с её лёгкой матершинкой, или "Put it on the Ritz", буквально сотканная из сленга. 

Логическое продолжение этой страницы "Песни для произношения, лексики и удовольствия "

 


 

Как использовать песни на уроках

 

1. Постановка произношения

 

Прослушиваем несколько раз, имея текст перед глазами, но основной упор делаем на мелодию.

 

Повторяем текст первого куплета в медленном темпе за учителем, с коррекцией неправильно

произнесенных звуков.

 

Прослушиваем аутентичное исполнение, пытаясь подпевать.

 

С первого раза никогда не получается! Возвращаемся к медленному повторению и опять подпеваем.

 

На дом: выучить текст.

 

На следующем уроке поем хором.

 

2. Новая лексика 

 

Берем хорошую песню.

 

В тексте вместо некоторых слов (например - только прилагательные или только глаголы) ставим прочерки и раздаем ученикам.

Далее, разучиваем, как и раньше, но предварительно заполняем пробелы.

 

Пример                                                               

 

  Eagles - Hotel California

 

Что здесь поделаешь! Официальное видио с концерта Eagles запрещено правообладателем. Ну, вот - какое есть

 

 

 

 

On a --- desert highway  (dark)
--- wind in my hair (Cool)
Warm smell of colitas =
марихуана (исп.)
Rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance
I saw a shimmering light
My head grew --- and my sight grew dim (heavy)

 

I had to stop for the night

 

Пожалуй достаточно, работа и так предстоит большая. Впрочем, это на Ваше усмотрение.

 


 

There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself
"This could be heaven or this could be hell"
Then she lit up a candle
And she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

 

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place

 

Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year
You can find it here

 

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted /Завернута на Тиффани      речь идёт о ювелирном доме "TIFFANY&CO"/

 

She got the Mercedes-Benz
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
That she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard
Sweet summer sweat /
волнение, а буквально - вспотеть/   
Some dance to remember
Some dance to forget

 

So I called up the captain  /captain - здесь - метродотель/                             
"Please bring me my wine"

He said,

 

"We haven't had that spirit here Since 1969"
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say

 

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face

 

Such a lovely face
They're living it up /live it up - кутить, прожигать жизнь/ at the Hotel California           

What a nice surprise
Bring your alibis alibis /алиби/

                                            

Mirrors on the ceiling
The pink champagne on ice
And she said,

 

"We are all just prisoners here
Of our own device"
And in the master's chambers
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
But they just can't kill the beast

 

Last thing I remember
I was
running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
"Relax," said the night man
"We are programmed to receive
You can check out any time you like
But you can never leave!"

 

3. И продолжаем:

 

Next lesson we'll have a look at the history of modern musik. We'll try to sing the songs of popular singers, that was at the beginning, such as The beatles, ABBA, Smokie. 

 

Из Битлз рекомендую: Blackbird, альбом 1968 - White Album CD 1,  Eleanor Rigby альбом 1966 - Revolver, Yesterday альбом 1965a - Help, Run For Your Life, альбом 1965b - Rubber Soulr.

 

АББА - вообще вне конкуренции по содержательности текстов, хотя много откровенно тинэйджерских.

 

Из Смоки: Stranger, альбом Midnight Cafe (1976), London Is Burning альбом The Other Side Of Road (1979),

 

Скачать тексты можно здесь же на сайте. 


 

New

Ну вот, дожили! Младшая дочь выросла (пошла в 7 класс) и качает из Интернета песни без передыха.

Чтобы совместить неприятное с полезным, я настоял (и ей это понравилось) на том, что уж если качать англоязычные песни, то вместе с текстами. Когда их накопилось достаточно много, я предложил ей добавить на ее (Иркину) страницу еще один раздел. Назвали его: "Песни от которых балдеют тинейджеры". 

Теперь можно блеснуть на уроке своим знанием молодежной субкультуры и доказать, что ты не отстаешь от жизни.


 

 

Пожалуй я слишком увлёкся этой страницей.

 

Первоначально она отвечала назначению - для использования на уроках.

Но после Space, когда я уже собрался размещать любимые песни Биттлз, до меня дошло - это уже не для уроков, просто осталось желание делиться своими любимыми песнями.

Для этого нужна новая страница. И она появилась - "Песни для произношени, лексики и удовольствия".

Эти песни, конечно можно использовать и на уроках, но они прежде всего для тех, кто изучает язык самостоятельно. Не случайно, наверное, среди моих любимых песен нет просто красивых, но бессмыссленных. А это стимул для заучивания наизусть, поскольку формирует произношение и способствует накоплению новой лексики.


 

 

 

Madonna

Hung up (Зависла)

 

 

Time goes by so slowly...
Every little thing that you say or do
 hung up
oh, I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
 fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you


Time goes by so slowly
for those who wait
No time to hesitate
Those who run seem to have all the fun

I'm caught up
I don't know what to do
Time goes by so slowly...
Time goes by so slowly...
Time goes by so slowly...
I don't know what to do


Ring ring ring goes the telephone
The lights are on
but there is no one home

Tick-tick-tock it is a quarter to two
And I'm done
I'm hanging up on you
I can't keep on waiting for you
I know that you are still hesitating
Don't cry for me
'Cause I'll find my way
You'll wake up one day
But it'll be too late.
Every little thing that you say or do
hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you

 

 

 

Время тянется так медленно…
Каждая мелочь, что ты что-то говоришь или делаешь,
подвешивает.
Я зависла на тебе,
Ждущая твоих звонков
милый  ночью и днем
Сыта по горло
Я устала ждать на  тебя.

Время идет так медленно
для тех, кто ждет.
Нет времени сомневаться.
Кажется, что те, которые бегут, получают все призы.

Я есть пойманная.
Я не знаю, что делать.
Время проходит так медленно…
Время тянется так медленно…
Время тянется так медленно…
Я делаю не знать что делать.

Дринь-дринь-дринь – идет (звонит) телефон.
Свет есть включен,

но там есть нет никого дома.

Тик-тик-так, это есть четверть к два,
И я есть сделанная.
Я зависла на тебе,
Я могу
не держать на ждущая для тебя.
Я знаю, что ты есть все еще сомневающийся.
Делай не окликать для меня,
Потому что я найду свой путь.
ты проснешься
однажды
Но это будет слишком поздно.
Каждая мелочь, что ты говоришь или делаешь,

подвешивает.
Я зависла на тебе,
Ждущая твоих звонков

милый  ночью и днем

Сыта по горло

Я есть устала ждать на тебя.(Меня утомило прислуживание тебе)

 Katy Perry   I kissed a girl

 

Вполне приличный клип запретили собственники (правообладатели). Вот уж казалось бы ... Более 100000000 просмотров! Ну еще и мы посмотрели бы, ничего у них бы не отпало.

 

 

This was never the way I planned,

not my intention. /намерение, стремление, цель/

I got so brave,

drink in hand.

Lost my discretion /осторожность, осмотрительность; благоразумие/

Its not what, I'm used to.

Just wanna try you on.

I'm curious for you,

caught my attention.

 

I kissed a girl and I liked it,

the taste of her cherry chapstick. /бесцветная губная помада(от chap растрескиваться - гигиеническая)/

I kissed a girl just to try it,

I hope my boyfriend don't mind it.

It felt so wrong,

it felt so right.

Don't mean I'm in love tonight.

I kissed a girl and I liked it.

(I liked it)

 

No, I don’t even know your name,

it doesn't matter.

You’re my experimental game,

just human nature.

It's not what good girls do.

Not how they should behave.

My head gets, so confused.

Hard to obey.\подчиняться, повиноваться\

 

I kissed a girl and I liked it,

the taste of her cherry chapstick.

I kissed a girl just to try it,

I hope my boyfriend don't mind it.

It felt so wrong,

it felt so right.

Don't mean I'm in love tonight.

I kissed a girl and I liked it.

(I liked it)

 

Us girls we are so magical.

Soft skin, red lips, so kissable.

Hard to resist,  

so touchable.

Too good to deny it. /(обыкн. с отрицанием) воздерживаться (от чего-л)/

Ain't no big deal,

it's innocent. /Непорочный, целомудренный,  невредимый/

 

 

I kissed a girl and I liked it,

the taste of her cherry chapstick.

I kissed a girl just to try it,

I hope my boyfriend don't mind it.

It felt so wrong,

it felt so right.

Don't mean I'm in love tonight.  

I kissed a girl and I liked it.

Tanita Tikaram

 

Twist in my sobriety (Изгиб в моей рассудительности)

 
  

All God's children need travelling shoes

Drive your problems from here

All good people read good books

Now your conscience \совесть\ is clear

I hear you talk girl

Now your conscience is clear

 

In the morning when I wipe (стирать, вытирать) my brow (выражение лица, бровь)

Wipe the miles away

I like to think I can be so willed  (волевой)

And never do what you say

I'll never hear you

And never do what you say

 

Look my eyes are just holograms (голограммы)

Look your love has drawn (вытянула) red from my hands 

From my hands you know you'll never be

More than twist in my sobriety (рассудительность)

More than twist in my sobriety

More than twist in my sobriety

 

We just poked (расковыряли) a little empty pie

For the fun people had at night

Late at night don't need hostility (вражда)

The timid smile and pause to free

 

I don't care about their different thoughts

Different thoughts are good for me

Up in arms and chaste (целомудренный) and whole

All God's children took their toll

 

Look my eyes are just holograms

Look your love has drawn red from my hands

From my hands you know you'll never be

More than twist in my sobriety

More than twist in my sobriety

More than twist in my sobriety

 

Cup of tea, take time to think, yea

Time to risk a life, a life, a life

Sweet and handsome

Soft and porky

You pig out 'til you've seen the light

Pig out 'til you've seen the light

 

Half the people read the papers

Read them good and well

Pretty people, nervous people

People have got to sell

News you have to sell

 

Look my eyes are just holograms

Look your love has drawn red from my hands

From my hands you know you'll never be

More than twist in my sobriety

More than twist in my sobriety

More than twist in my sobriety


Ase of base

 

All that she wants

 

 

 

She leads a lonely life 

she leads a lonely life /ведет/

 

When she woke up late in the morning light

and the day has just begun

she opened up eyes and thought

oh, what a morning

it's not a day for work

it's a day for catching tan /загар/

just laying on the beach and having fun

she's going to get you

 

all matchs she wants is another baby, (she made a good match-пара, партия- она сделала хорошую партию)

she's gone. tomorrow boy.

all matchs she wants is another baby

all matchs she wants is another baby

she's gone tomorrow boy

all match she wants is another baby

 

all that she wants - how much she wants

 

so if you are in sight and the day is right

she's the hunter you're the fox

the gentle voice that talks to you

won't talk forever

it's a night for passion /страсть/

but the morning means goodbye

beware of that is flashing on her eyes

she's going to get you

 

all that she wants is another baby..

 


  
Happy nation
 

Laudate omnes gentes laudate

Magnificat en secula

Et anima mea laudate

Magnificat en secular

 

Happy nation living in a happy nation

Where the people understand

And dream of the perfect man

A situation lead to sweet salvation

For the people for the good

For mankind brotherhood

 

 

We're traveling in time

 

Ideas by man and only that will last

And over time we've turned to the past

That no man's fit to rule the world alone

A man will die but not his ideas

 

 

Happy nation...

 

We're traveling in time

Traveling in time

 

Tell them we've gone too far

Tell them we've gone too far

Happy nation come through

And I will dance with you

Happy nation

 

Happy nation...

 

Славьте народ, славьте –

Великий во все времена.

И славьте мою душу -

Великую во все времена.

 

Счастливая нация, живущая в счастливой стране,

Где люди все понимают

И мечтают об совершенном человеке,

Место на пути к счастливому спасению,

К лучшей жизни для людей,

Для человеческого братства

 

 

Мы путешествуем во времени

 

Идеи человека - единственное, что остается,

Спустя время мы вернулись к прошлому,

Ни один человек не создан управлять миром в одиночку,

Человек смертен, но не его идеи

 

 

Счастливая нация, …

 

Мы путешествуем во времени,

Путешествуем во времени.

 

Скажите им - мы зашли слишком далеко,

Скажите им - мы зашли слишком далеко,

Счастливой нации все по плечу,

И я буду танцевать с тобой

- счастливая нация

 


QueenThe show must go on

 

 

 

Empty spaces - what are we living for

Abandoned \заброшенный,покинутый\ places - I guess we know the score

On and on, does anybody know what we are looking for...

Another hero, another mindless \бессмысленный\ crime

Behind the curtain, in the pantomime

Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore

 

The show must go on,

The show must go on

Inside my heart is breaking

My make-up may be flaking \отслаивается, осыпается\

But my smile still stays on.

 

Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance

Another heartache, another failed romance

On and on, does anybody know what we are living for?

I guess I'm learning,  I must be warmer now

I'll soon be turning, round the corner now

Outside the dawn \рассвет\ is breaking
But inside in the dark I'm aching \болящий, ноющий\ to be free


The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on
My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die

I can fly - my friends

 

The show must go on
The show must go on
I'll face it with a grin
I'm never giving in
On - with the show -
I'll top the bill, I'll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on
On with the -
On with the show -
The show must go on...

Groove Coverage  God is a girl

 

 

не перевожу - бред полный

 

Remembering me, discover and see

All over the world, she's known as a girl

To those who are free, their minds shall be keep

Forgotten as the past, cause history will last

God is a girl, whatever you want

Do you believe it, can you receive it

God is a girl, whatever you say

Do you believe it, can you receive it

God is a girl, however you live

Do you believe it, can you receive it

God is a girl, she's only a girl

Do you believe it, can you receive it

 

She wants to shine forever in time

She is so driven, she's always mine

Clearly and free she wanted you be

Apart of a future, a girl like me

There is a sky in ammoniating us

Someone is out there that we truly trust

There is a rainbow for you and me

A beautiful sunrise eternally

 

God is a girl, whatever you want

Do you believe it, can you receive it

God is a girl, whatever you say

Do you believe it, can you receive it

God is a girl, however you live

Do you believe it, can you receive it

God is a girl, she's only a girl

Do you believe it, can you receive it


Эта песня с сайта http://irinabebneva.ucoz.ru/publ К стати, рекомендую заглядывать на этот сайт. Он еще молодой, развивающийся, отличается хорошим вкусом владельца (Ирины Бебневой), как в дизайне, так и в подборе материала.  

 

The House of the Rising Sun – американская народная песня, иногда она исполнялась под названием Rising Sun Blues.

Вариант "Animals" - самый известный

 

 


There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one.

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans,
My father was a gambling' man
Down in New Orleans.

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk \дорожный чемодан, кофр\ ,
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

Oh mother, tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I've got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm going' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain.


   

Самая рождественская песня, в которой нет ни слова о Рождестве!

 

Jingle bells   

 караоке

Слушайте и пойте вместе с учениками.

 

Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh,

 

Over the fields we go, laughing all the way.

Bells on bob-tails ring, making spirits bright,

What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight.

 

Chorus

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!

O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!

O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

 

A day or two ago, I thought I'd take a ride

And soon Miss Fanny Bright, was seated by my side;

The horse was lean and lank, misfortune seemed his lot;

He got into a drifted bank and we got up sot

 

Chorus

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!

O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!

O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

 

A day or two ago, the story I must tell

I went out on the snow, and on my back I fell;

A gent was riding by, in a one-horse open sleigh

He laughed as there I sprawling lie but quickly drove away

 

Chorus

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!

O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!

O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

'way down an Egypt land                               Gm(X) D(X) Gm(X) Cm (VIII)
Tell all Pharaohs                                                  Gm(X) D#
To let my people go.                                        Gm D Gm

So Moses went to Egypt lend

Let my people go

And men of pharaoh understand

Let my people go

 

Yes, the Lord said

Go down Moses

The way down an Egypt land

Tell all  Pharaohs

To let my people go

let my people go

 

Thus sayeth the Lord, bold Moses said 

Let my people go

If not I'll smite, your firstborn's dead   \карать; наказывать\          

Let my people go


Припев.

 

Yes the Lord said

Go down Moses
'way down an Egypt land                             

Tell all Pharaoh                                                

To let my people go.

 

(Армстронг этот куплет не поет)

                                     
So let us all from bondage flee 

Let my people go                  

So let us all in God be free

Let my people go  

Пpипев.


   

Ray Charles - Hit The Road Jack (Live 1981)

 

  

 

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.)

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.)

What you say?

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.)

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.)

 

Woah Woman, oh woman, don't treat (трактовать, считать) me so mean (убогий, жалкий, захудалый, запущенный),

You're the meanest old woman that I've ever seen.

I guess if you said so

I'd have to pack my things and go. (That's right)

 

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.)

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.)

What you say?

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.)

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.)

 

Now baby, listen baby, don't ya treat me this-a way

Cause I'll be back with my fish some day.

(Don't care if you do 'cause it's understood

you ain't got no money you just ain't no good.)

Well, I guess if you say so

I'd have to pack my things and go. (That's right)

 

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.)

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.)

What you say?

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.)

(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.)

Well

(don't you come back no more.)

Uh, what you say?

(don't you come back no more.)

I didn't understand you

(don't you come back no more.)

You can't mean that

(don't you come back no more.)

Oh, now baby, please

(don't you come back no more.)

What you tryin' to do to me?

(don't you come back no more.)

Oh, don't treat me like that

(don't you come back no more.)

Years on the run
Boy I know I can take it
And now that I'm here
I know you can't stand /терпеть не можешь/
the waiting, boy 
Lets say no more games

 

No messing /путанница/ with the mind                 
Always room for change
Let's give it one more try
(Come on let's give it a try)

I got my bags packed baby and I'm ready to go
Look at my eyes rock steady /steady as a rock твердый как скала
and I promise you more

 

I got My heart back baby and it's skipping a beat
I got my ass in check, check-in out, I'm ready to feel

It's all good to go
I'm right here for the taking
(oooh ticky ticky ticky)
Don't cross the line
I'll promise you no fakin' /фальшивый/, boy                               

(no no no no)
Its all understood
No messing /путанница/ with the rules                                  
(the rules, the rules)
If I let you go
Boy I will be a fool
(What kind of girl wants to be a fool?)

I got my bags packed baby and I'm ready to go
Look at my eyes rock steady and I promise you more
I got My heart back baby and it's skipping a beat
I got my ass in check, check-in out, I'm ready to feel

Tell me why we act so stupid, the games we're playing (oooh)
If life is the rule then we're heading /мы направлялись/ towards the same thing                       

You are not worthless \бесполезный\ with love instead of the fighting (oooh)
Let's get together forever with no more hiding /не скрываясь прячась)/  


I got my bags packed baby and I'm ready to go
Look at my eyes rock steady and I promise you more
I got My heart back baby and it's skipping a beat
I got my ass in check, check-in out, /выписываюсь/ I'm ready to feel                               


I got my bags packed baby and I'm ready to go
Look at my eyes rock steady and I promise you more
I got My heart back baby and it's skipping a beat
I got my ass in check, check-in out, I'm ready to feel


 

  

Gloria Gaynor -  I Will Survive

 

 

First I was afraid,
I was petrified \окаменеть\

Kept thinking I could never live
without you by my side

But then I spent so many nights

thinking how you did me wrong

And I grew stronger
and I learned how to get along /
жить; прожить; обходиться/

 

so now you're back, from outer space,

I just walked in to find you here
with that sad look upon your face

I should have changed that stupid lock,
I should have made you leave your key

If I had known for just one second
you'd be back to bother me

 

Go on now go walk out the door

just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome anymore

weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye

Did you think I'd crumble  /распадаться, разрушаться, гибнуть; крошиться/        
Did you think I'd lay down and die

 

Oh no, not I
I will survive

as long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive

I've got all my life to live
and I've got all my love to give

and I'll survive
I will survive, hey-hey!

 

Only the Lord could give me strength not to fall apart

Though /хотя, несмотря на / I tried hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart

and I spent oh, so many nights,
just feeling sorry for myself

I used to cry,
But now I hold my head up high

 

I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you

and so you felt like dropping in and just expect \ждать, надеяться\ me to be free

now I'm saving all my loving for someone who's loving me

Go on now go walk out the door,
just turn around now,
'cause you're not welcome anymore

 

Weren't you the one who tried to push me with goodbye,
Did you think I'd crumble,
Did you think I'd lay down and die

Oh no, not I, I will survive,
and as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive


 

 

 Michael Jackson - Billie Jean 



People always told me be careful of what you do
And don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
And mother always Ttold me be careful of who you love
And be careful of what you do 'cause the lie becomes the truth

[1st Verse]
She Was More Like A Beauty Queen From A Movie Scene
I Said Don't Mind, But What Do You Mean I Am The One
Who Will Dance On The Floor In The Round
She Said I Am The One Who Will Dance On The Floor In The Round

[2nd Verse]
She Told Me Her Name Was Billie Jean, As She Caused A Scene
Then Every Head Turned With Eyes That Dreamed Of Being The One
Who Will Dance On The Floor In The Round

[Bridge]
People Always Told Me Be Careful Of What You Do
And Don't Go Around Breaking Young Girls' Hearts
And Mother Always Told Me Be Careful Of Who You Love
And Be Careful Of What You Do 'Cause The Lie Becomes The Truth

[Chorus]
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son

[3rd Verse]
For Forty Days And Forty Nights
The Law Was On Her Side
But Who Can Stand When She's In Demand
Her Schemes And Plans
'Cause We Danced On The Floor In The Round
So Take My Strong Advice, Just Remember To Always Think Twice
(Do Think Twice)

[4th Verse]
She Told My Baby We'd Danced 'Till Three
Then She Looked At Me
Then Showed A Photo My Baby Cried
His Eyes Looked Like Mine
Go On Dance On The Floor In The Round, Baby

[Bridge]
People Always Told Me Be Careful Of What You Do
And Don't Go Around Breaking Young Girls' Hearts
And Mother Always Told Me Be Careful Of Who You Love
And Be Careful Of What You Do 'Cause The Lie Becomes The Truth

[Chorus]
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, She Says He Is My Son
She Says I Am The One

The Kinks - Sunny Afternoon 

 

 

The taxman's taken all my dough /тесто, сл. деньги/
And left me in my stately /величественный/ home
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
And I can't sail my yacht
He's taken everything I've got
All I'v  got  this sunny afternoon

 

Save me,
save me,
save me
from the squeeze /тяжелое положение; затруднение/
I got a big fat momma* trying to break me


 

And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
In summertime
In summertime
In summertime

 

My girlfriend's gone off with my car
And gone back to her ma and pa
Tellin' tales of drunkenness and so cruelty
Now I'm sittin' here
Sippin' at my ice-cool beer
Lazin on a sunny afternoon


Help me,
me help me,
help me sail away

Well, give me two good reasons why I oughta stay


Cause I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
In summertime
In summertime
In summertime

 

Save me, save me, save me from the squeeze
I got a big fat momma trying to break me
And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
In summertime
In summertime
In summertime


*About a big fat momma.

Здесь это явно отрицательный персонаж. Как же: "I got a big fat momma trying to break me"!

 

А вот что поют Smokie в одноименной песне:

 

Oh big fat momma, hold me close and squeeze me tight       

Bet your bottom dollar /поговорка: Даю голову на отсечение/, I'll be right
If I stay with you

(Песня приведена ниже).

 

Персона явно положительная. Непонятно!

Я спросил своего давнего друга по переписке, американца Ральфа, что он думает по этому поводу, и вот что он мне ответил:

 

Now you need to sit down as I try to explain "big fat Momma".

 Here in America each person has their own idea of what this woman would look like.  I will go to an extreme to give you a idea using cm and kg.  Her cm isn't important since she could be 155cm in the mind of one person and 190 cm in another persons mind.  However if you take and add kgs then the picture begins to take shape. Her face is what ever you want it to look like.  If she was 950kg and was 190 cm you have an idea of "Fat".  the use of the word "Momma" only designates it as being female.  This term is used mostly by the black Americans or as they prefer to be called "Afro-American".  This term is used in many songs performed by both white and black artist.  The two songs have different meanings.  You will find that many songs have use of words but the words are meaningless except to the listener who is free to interpret the use of the words as they desire them to mean.  I think I have added to your confusion more.
  One song prefers large women and the other doesn't want to be crushed. 
There is a movie called "Big Momma's House".  Go t
o IMDb.com 
and you can enter a movie title and see a photo or three as well as read what that movie is about.  You can also do the same for any movie made, but I'm not sure if you can find Russian made movies listed on it.  I also think you will have to type the titles your are searching for in English.


 

Steam Powered Giraffe - "This is probably the most unique band I've ever heard". (из коментариев. Я тоже подписываюсь)

 

"Brass/ латунные/ Goggles/ защитные очки /"

 


Music & Lyrics by Christopher Bennett
Composed by Jonathan Sprague

 

You seated comfortably?
Got your bag of pork rinds and/or sandwich?
GREAT. Now, I need you to sing along. This is a sing along, this next song!
Even if you’re in your underwear,
Sing loud and proud!
Now, if you don’t know the lyrics, just follow the bouncing pug head!
It’ll show you the way!
Now, uh, don’t follow the red star. That’ll give you the wrong lyrics.
And completely ignore the Chihuahua head. Just the pug, alright?
Than we're good to go.

 

Он говорит примерно следующее: "Привет, вы уютно устроились с чем-то там и каким-то там бутербродом? Отлично! Я хочу, чтобы вы подпевали следующую песню. Даже если вы в одном нижнем белье, пойте громко и гордо! А если у вас нет слов, просто следуйте за головой мопса! Она укажет вам путь! Но не следуйте за красной звездой, она покажет вам неправильные слова, и полностью игнорируйте голову чихуахуа. Только мопс, хорошо? Тогда мы готовы!"

 

 Without any further adieu \адью (фр.) прошание\: attune \настройте\ your ears to the grinding gears!

 

 

Come with me I'll show you how to be a metal man
When the gears are turning and the fires are burning
When the world ticks /
Импульсы/ around you, 
voices talking (tocking) all the time  \tick-tock  - тик-так\
And you live for sleep you've never slept
because you cannot sleep

Colonel Walter was shocked 
when he learned from the Nile
Copper African elephants turning hostile /
враждебный, недружелюбный/
So he built these wonderful automaton blocks
And a very big steam powered giraffe what smokes

Now the war is passed and over
We're left to sit and wonder
What is life and what is real?
And why do living things need feeling?
(One, two, three)

Chorus: 
La-Da-Da-Da-Da (x3)
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da

La-Da-Da-Da-Da (x2)
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da

How'd you like to try pumping lead \свинец\ through your veins
Or have a heart so wet and cold it starts rusting
When the world ticks around you, 
voices tocking all the time
You live for feelings you've never felt 
because you cannot feel

And what is this leaking \
негерметичность, протечка/ affecting \волнующий, трогающий до слёз\ my eye?
Does the oil that is dripping \капает\ mean this is a cry?
Will I ever be something with feelings to hide?
Or am I just a boiler with nothing inside?

I want all today
Don't want to hear you say
You can't do this, you can't do that

You're not a living thing with feeling
(One, two, three)

Chorus: 
La-Da-Da-Da-Da (x3)
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da

La-Da-Da-Da-Da (x2)
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da

(Chorus)

Wind me up, turn the gears                                    (Brass goggles!)
Wind me up, turn the gears                                    (Brass goggles!)
Wind me up, turn the gears        (Brass goggles, goggles, goggles!)
Wind me up, turn the gears                                    (Brass googles!)

(Part 1 & 2 together)

 

Part 1: 

I want all today
Don’t want to hear you say
I love you, I love you
I love-love-love you

Part 2:


Colonel Walter was shocked when he learned from the Nile
Copper African elephants turning hostile
So he built these wonderful automaton bloaks
And a very big steam 
powered /с приводом от пара/ giraffe what smokes

Wind me up, turn the gears (x4)

(Chorus)

Music & Lyrics By David Michael Bennett

 

Ever since the first time I opened my eyes

I've awakened to the same thing

Other automaton friends roughly  \неаккуратно, небрежно/ built like me

 

The first time I opened my mouth to speak

steam escaped to the air

and black oil dripped from my lips

and onto the ground

 

Well daylight struck a chord \задевать (чувствительную) струну\ with my

photo-receptors

Night greeted me with a sea of stars

Our eyes all flashed blues and greens

through the night

 

It's just our

 

Aaaaaaaaaah Automatonic

Electronic

Harmonics

 

People are soaring  \вздымающийся, возвышающийся\, always exploring \исследуют\,

higher than they've ever been before

But we are still down here,

feet on the ground near

what will rise us up with the rest

 

Our thoughts are quixotic / донкихотский /, stark / окоченевший, застывший / and robotic,

mechanical in nature all the time

And pulses are firing in our head wiring \электропроводка\,

guiding all our actions and beings

 

It's just our

 

Aaaaaaaaaah Automatonic

Electronic

Harmonics

 

I am not an unimaginable \невообразимый\ thing

My thoughts are tangible / материальный /

though they're full of springs

 

I don't have the heart to send you untruthful words

My skin is cold to the touch and made from the earth

 

They say

 

Oh, oh it's so down, but baby it's sound

makes your worries cease /прекращать(ся)/ to pound /положить конец, останавливать/

 

And oh, maybe it's alright, 'cause baby it fights

for some time just to be held tight

 

And oh, maybe it's not wrong, 'cause it sings a lovely song

one that drifts /сдвигаться по ветру, по течению, дрейфовать/ on for so long

 

And oh, baby let's not lie, it's eyes are alive

and pointed up shining light to the sky

 

It's just our

 

Aaaaaaaaaah Automatonic

Electronic

Harmonics

 

Epic and so cool

Epic and so cool

Epic and so cool

Epic and so cool

 

Aaaaaaaaaah Automatonic

Ella Fitzgerald - Caravan

 

Ах, как она произносит!

Поистине, замечательный пример, для тех, кто решил реально овладеть английским произношением! Совершенно не требуется прослушивать несколько раз, чтобы понять: что она там промямлила - можно сразу, если, конечно, не знаете этого слова, обратиться к словарю. Дикция - великолепная! А музыка не зря пережила столько лет.

 

 

 

Night and stars above that shine so bright
The myst'ry of their fading /кино, радио, тлв. постепенное исчезновение звука или изображения/ light
That shines upon our caravan

 

Sleep upon my shoulder as we creep /медленно двигаться/
Across the sand so I may keep
This memory of our caravan

 

This is so exciting, you are so inviting
Resting in my arms
As I thrill /нервная дрожь, трепет/ to the magic charms

 

Of you

 

Beside me here, beneath the blue
My dream of love is coming true
Within our desert caravan

 

Night, night, night, night and stars above that shine so bright
The mystery of their fading light
That shines upon our caravan

 

Sleep upon my shoulders as we creep
Across the sand so I may keep
This memory of our caravan

 

This is so exciting, you are so inviting
Resting in my arms
As I thrill to the magic charms

 

Of you

 

beside me here, beneath the blue
My dream of love is coming true
Within our desert caravan

 

You beside me here, beneath the blue
My dream of love is coming true
Within our desert caravan


 

Unchain My Heart ( Joe Cocker)

  

Unchain /сними цепи/ my heart, baby, let me be

Cause you don’t care, well, please set me free.
Unchain my heart, baby, let me go

Unchain my heart, cause you don’t love me no more

 

Every time I call you on the phone

Some fellow tells me that you’re not at home

Unchain my heart, set me free

 

Unchain my heart, baby, let me be

Unchain my heart, cause you don’t care about me

You got me sewed up /сл. пьяный/ like a pillowcase \наволочка\

But you’re letting my love go to waste

 

Unchain my heart set me free


Adele. Rolling In The Deep


Songwriters: Epworth, Paul Richard / Adkins, Adele

 


There's a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fevered pitch and it's bringing me out the dark.
Finally, I can see you crystal clear,
Go ahead and sell me out and I'll lay your ship bare \выведу на чистую воду
See how I'll leave with every piece of you,
Don't underestimate /недооценивать, преуменьшать/ the things that I will do.

 

There's a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bring me out the dark.

 

The scars of your love remind me of us,
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all.
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless,
I can't help feeling,

 

We could have had it all,
(Your gonna wish you, never had met me)
Rolling in the deep,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside your hand,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

 

Baby, I have no story to be told,
But I've heard one on you and I'm gonna make your head burn,
Think of me in the depths of your despair /отчаяние; безысходность/,
Making a home down there as mine sure won't be shared,

 

The scars of your love remind me of us,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
I can't help feeling,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

 

We could have had it all,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside your hand,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

 

Could have had it all,
Rolling in the deep,
You had my heart inside of your hands,
But you played it with a beating.

 

Throw your soul through every open door,
Count your blessings to find what you look for.
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold,
You'll pay me back in kind and reap just what you've sown.

 

(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
We could have had it all,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all.
(You're gonna wish you never had met me),
It all, it all, it all.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

 

We could have had it all,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

 

Could have had it all,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hands,
(You're gonna wish you never had met me

 

But you played it,
You played it,
You played it,
You played it to the beat.


Мелодия надолго залипает в памяти. Я впервые услышал эту песню в 70-е. А недавно, услышав по радио, сразу бросился в YouTube, нашёл и, прочитав текст, вдруг понял - да там есть смысл, не только мелодия!

 

Steve Miller Band.      Abracadabra  

 

 

I heat up, I can't cool down
You got me spinnin'
'Round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows

 

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin' flame
Burnin' flame full of desire /(страстное) желание/
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

 

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out /дотягиваться/ and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

 

You make me hot, you make me sigh
You make me laugh, you make me cry
Keep me burnin' for your love
With the touch of a velvet glove

 

Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

 

I feel the magic in your caress /ласка/
I feel magic when I touch your dress
Silk and satin, leather /кожа/and lace /шнурок, тесьма/
Black panties with an angel's face

 

I see magic in your eyes
I hear the magic in your sighs /вздох/
Just when I think I'm gonna get away
I hear those words that you always say
 
Abra-abra-cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra-abra-cadabra
Abracadabra

 

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin' flame
Burnin' flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

 

I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round
I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round
I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round


 

 

Sonny & Cher  Little Man -1966

 

 

Little man
When you stand by my side
Then I know I don't have
To hide from anyone
And I pray that
We'll stay just that way
Till the day comes along
When we catch the sun

 

[Chorus:]

Little girl you're runnin'
Come catch my hand I'm near you
Little girl you're singin'
Come closer to me I hear you


 

You're growin' old
My mother scold \бранить(ся), ругать(ся)\
Now you've learned
What it meant to be mature
There's no such place
As make believe
But when I look at your face
I'm not so sure


 

[Chorus]

 

You and me is what I see
And that's the way
It's gonna stay
And it will always be
So little man, please understand
In this world with all its land
You're all I see

 

[Chorus x2]

 


 

 

Спэйс не менее чем Бттлз заслуживают, чтобы их знали. Красивая музыка, отличные голоса, интересные тексты. Лучшие записи - с концерта в Москве - Concerts En URSS Live In Russia - (1996). К сожалению на ю-тюбе их нет ( ну, может я плохо искал). Там все песни - старые. На московском концерте их исполняет другой солист, с голосом ... Ну, с настоящим голосом, а не этот пискля. Хотя и этого можно слушать. В общем, чем богат ...

 


 

 

Space - Child ("Paris France Transit")

 

 

Child,
Forget your lonely fathers,
Beguiled \о
бманутый\
Not able \компетентный, знающий, (не) в состоянии\ to look further,
Than they should,

 

than they could.

Lost
Inside a maze \
лабиринт\ of nations,
Tossed \
брошенный, покинутый\

In a haze \неясность, нечеткость, туман\ of degradation.

You can laugh at the things that they said
They can never return from the dead,
You can better the lives that they led
With brains of computer instead \вместо\

 

Of human minds

 

they've wasted time.

Your minds
Are young enough to remold \амер. изменять, переопределять\
You’ll find
It’s less painful than to grow old,
We'll take control,

 

do as you’re told.

Child, child,
You'll be so well directed,
Don't cry, don't cry.
Just obey \подчиняйся, проявляй послушание\ or be rejected \бракованный, негодный\.

There will be no one on earth to rebel \бунтовать, восставать\
And a rebel \восставший; мятежник\ would only live hell,
When you know that we only mean well,
When you know why your fathers fell,
Time takes its toll,

 

we’ll take control.

We’ll take control.

We don't wanna become
Somebody's property \собственность\,
We don't wanna give up \отказаться\
On our liberty,
No lazier \более ленивых\ eyes on our walls
Just because we are small.

We don't wanna become
Just numbers on a list,
We don't wanna be judged
By any scientist,
No programmation at all
Just because we are small.

We don't wanna become
Somebody's propety,
We don't wanna give up
On our liberty,
No lazier eyes on our walls
Just because we are small.

We don't wanna become
Just numbers on a list,
We don't wanna be judged
By any scientist,
No programmation at all
Just because we are small.

We don't wanna become
Somebody's property,
We don't wanna give up
On our liberty,
No lazier eyes on our walls
Just because we are small.


 

 Macabre - The Cat Came Back

 


Now old Mr. Johnson had troubles of his own,
He had a yellow cat that wouldn't leave his home,
He tried and he tried to get that cat away,
Gave it to a man going far away.

 

But the cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
\ умерший \,
But the cat came back, just wouldn't stay away.

 

Now the man around the corner swore he'd kill the cat on sight,
He loaded up his shotgun with nails and dynamites,
He waited and he waited for the cat to come around,
Ninety-seven pieces of the man is all they found.

 

But the cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner,
But the cat came back, just wouldn't stay away.

 

Gave it to a little boy with a dollar note,
Told him for to take it up the river in a boat,
They tied a rope around it's neck it must've weighed a pound,
Now they drag the river for the little boy it's drowned.

 

But the cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner,
But the cat came back, just wouldn't stay away.

 

Gave it to man going up in a balloon,
Told him for to take it to the man on the Moon,
The balloon came down about 90 miles away,
Where he is now, I dare not say.

 

But the cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner,
But the cat came back, just wouldn't stay away.

 

They gave it to a man going way out west,
Told him for to take it to the one he loved the best,
First, the train hit the curve, then it jumped the rail,
Not a soul was left behind to tell the gruesome
\ отвратительный, страшный \ tale.

 

But the cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner,
But the cat came back, just wouldn't stay away, away, away, away.

 

Away across the ocean he did send the cat at last,
Vessel \ корабль, судно \ out alone today taking water fast,

People all began to pray the boat began to toss \ носиться (по волнам) \,
A great big gust \ порыв \ of wind came by and every soul was lost.

 

But the cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner,
But the cat came back, just wouldn't stay away.

 

On a telegraph wire, sparrows sitting in a bunch,
The cat was feeling hungry, thought she'd like them for a lunch,
Climb softly up the pole, when she reached the top,
Put her foot in the electric wire, which tied her in a knot.

 

But the cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner,
But the cat came back, just wouldn't stay away.

 

Now the cat was a possessor of a family of a own,
With seven little kittens and along came a cyclone,
Blew the houses all apart and tossed the cat around,
The air was full of kittens and not a one was found.

 

But the cat came back, the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought she was a goner,
But the cat came back, just wouldn't stay away, away, away, away,
Just wouldn't stay away.


 Эта песня Smokie сразу произвела впечатление на моих десятиклассниц. За два дня выучили и порывались выступить с ней на Новогоднем концерте. Жаль не получилось. Песня того заслуживает.

 

Кстати: все тексты песен Smokie на странице "Тексты песен англоязычных исполнителей" 

 

 SMOKIE - Stranger \чужой, посторонний\

 


When the night has fallen
And the moon is high
And you get that far away look in your eyes
Oh can't you see you're acting like a stranger
When your loving feelings are so hard to find
And you can deceive \вводить в заблуждение\ me with your made-up lines
Lord knows you sound just like a stranger

 

So just in case you've changed your mind
You've got love if you want it and it can't go wrong
And just in case you find the time
You've got love if you need it and it can't go wrong

 

But stranger you're in danger
Of losing me
Oh stranger you're in danger
Of losing me

 

When the wind is howling and the rain comes down
And you lie awake without a sound
Feel like I'm living with a stranger
When I try to hold you and you turn away
There seems so little left for me to say
Oh Lord knows you look just like a stranger

 

So just in case you've changed your mind
You've got love if you want it and it can't go wrong
And just in case you find the time
You've got love if you need it and it can't go wrong
But stranger you're in danger
Of losing me
Oh stranger you're in danger
Of losing me
Oh stranger you're in danger
Of losing me
Oh stranger you're in danger
Of losing me


Удивительно красивые слова. На русский дословно не переведёшь, а просто для литературного перевода понадобится отнюдь не одна строчка. Да и мелодия, хоть вначале и озадачивает своей стилизацией под граммофонную пластинку, просто класс! 
Одна из лучших песен для разучивания как на уроках, так и для себя, любимого.

 

SMOKIE - Big Fat Momma


C. Norman / P. Spencer (1979)

 

I thought my chance of being in love
Had passed me by, it's true
But you brought the sun back into my life
Now I must confess \признаться\ to you  

   

I was a lonely boy
Until you came along and brought me joy
Just like a baby with a brand new toy
You really made my day

 

I was a lonely boy
Just a little shy and oh so coy \робкий, застенчивый, стеснительный\
With all the charm and grace that you employ \употребила\
You stole my heart away

 

I was only young and so were you
But what else could I do
One, two, how I love you

 

Oh big fat momma, hold me close and squeeze \сжимать,стискивать\ me tight
Bet your bottom dollar \to bet one's bottom dollar - даю голову на отсечение, маму родную готов заложить,\, I'll be right
If I stay with you

 

Big fat momma, take a walk with me tonight
Bet your bottom Dollar, by the light
Of the silvery moon

 

Harmonise \слаженно петь или играть жить в дружбе и согласии\ and croon \мурлыкать,тихо проникновенно петь\ a simple tune   
Together we will spoon \to spoon-миловаться, обниматься (особ. на людях); ворковать\

 

And in June, Honey-Moon

 

Oh big fat momma, hold me close and squeeze me tight
Bet your bottom dollar, I'll be right
If I stay with you

 

Big fat momma, take a walk with me tonight
Bet your bottom Dollar, by the light
Of the silvery moon


Это знаменитая Шизгара. Подробности на Луркоморье.

 

В исполнении Маришки Вереш звучит много лучше, чем в любом другом. 


 

 Mariska Veres - Venus \Венера\


 

 

Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name

 

She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
Your desire \страстное желание\
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
Your desire

 

Her weapons were her crystal eyes
Making every man a mad
Black as the dark night she was
Got what no-one else had

 

She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
Your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
Your desire

 

Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name

 

She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
Your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
Your desire

 

Yeah, baby, she's got it


  Mariska Veres - Summertime

 

Всем известная благодаря Дюку Эллингтону и Элле Фицжералд песня. Однако Элла поет хоть и классно, конечно, но с сильным негритянским акцентом, который нам для овладения произношением, совершенно не нужен.

 

Авторы: Dorothy Heyward / Du Bose Heyward / George Gershwin / Ira Gershwin

 

 На такую короткую колыбельную, что-то многовато авторов. Их список я взял из клипа Эллы. Боюсь, что Гершвины уж точно имеют отношение только Дюку Эллингтону, а отнюдь не к Маришке. Ну, сами разберётесь при желании. Моё дело дать свою любимую музыку всем, кто хочет её слушать и, попутно, учить , а точнее, совершенствовать свой английский.

 

Не перевёл ни одного слова, надеюсь понятно почему - да все слова - знакомые!

 



Summertime and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high \в смысле - урожай хорош\
Oh, your daddy's rich and your ma is good-lookin'
So hush, little baby; don't you cry

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing
And you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky
But till that morning, there ain't nothin' can harm you
With daddy and mammy standin' by

 

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing
And you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky
But till that morning, there ain't nothin' can harm you
With daddy and mammy standin' by


GEORGE MICHAEL - Last Christmas 

 

 

 

Last Christmas,
I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

 

Last Christmas,
I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

 

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye
Tell me baby
Do you recognize \оценила\ me?
Well it's been a year,
It doesn't surprise me

 

(Happy Christmas!)
I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying
«I love you» I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now
I know you'd fool me again

 

Last Christmas,
I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

 

Last Christmas,
I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

 

(Oooh… Oooh Baby)

 

A crowded room,
Friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you
And your soul of ice
My God!
I thought you were someone to rely on me.

 

I guess I was a shoulder to cry on
But a face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man undercover but you tore me apart \в стороне\
Oooh Oooh
Now I've found a real love
You'll never fool me again

 

Last Christmas,
I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

 

Last Christmas,
I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

 

A face on a lover
With a fire in his heart
(Gave you my heart)
A man undercover
But you tore me apart
(Next year)
I'll give it to someone,
I'll give it to someone special
(Special someone)
Someone

 

I'll give it to someone,
I'll give it to someone special
Who'll give me something in return
I'll give it to someone
Hold my heart and watch it burn

 

I'll give it to someone,
I'll give it to someone special
I've got you here to stay
I can love you for a day

 

I thought you were someone special
Gave you my heart
I'll give it to someone,
I'll give it to someone
Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
You gave it away
I'll give it to someone,
I'll give it to someone
La la la la….


Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

 

 

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide \обвал, оползень\,
No escape from reality.

 

Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I'm easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low,
Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.

 

Mama, just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead.
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I've gone and thrown it all away.

 

Mama, ooh,
Didn't mean to make you cry,
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

 

Too late, my time has come,
Sends shivers down my spine,
Body's aching all the time.
Goodbye, everybody, I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.
Mama, ooh (any way the wind blows),
I don't wanna die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

 

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt \раскат грома\ and lightning,
Very, very frightening me.
(Galileo) Galileo.
(Galileo) Galileo,
Galileo Figaro
Magnifico-o-o-o-o.

 

I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me.
He's just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare \сбереги\ him his life from this monstrosity.

 

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Never, never let you go
Never let me go, oh.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Oh, mama mia, mama mia (Mama mia, let me go.)
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.
Mama, ooh (any way the wind blows),
I don't wanna die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

 

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning,
Very, very frightening me.
(Galileo) Galileo.
(Galileo) Galileo,
Galileo Figaro
Magnifico-o-o-o-o.

 

I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me.
He's just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.

 

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Never, never let you go
Never let me go, oh.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Oh, mama mia, mama mia (Mama mia, let me go.)
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.


Whitney Houston - I Will Always Love You

 

 

If I should stay,
I would only be in your way.
So I'll go, but I know
I'll think of you ev'ry step of the way.
And I will always love you.
I will always love you.


You, my darling you. Hmm.
Bittersweet \горькая радость\ memories
that is all I'm taking with me.
So, goodbye. Please, don't cry.
We both know I'm not what you, you need.
And I will always love you.
I will always love you.


(Instrumental solo)


I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you've dreamed of.
And I wish to you, joy and happiness.
But above all this, I wish you love.
And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.

And it'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy

Gonna take more than a shot to get this poison ought to me
And I got all the symptoms, count 'em 1, 2, 3

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Shake it up just like bad medicine
There ain't no doctor that can cure my disease
Bad, bad medicine

 

I don't need no needle /игла / to be giving me a thrill /1) возбуждение, глубокое волнение
2) нервная дрожь, трепет
/
And I don't need no anesthesia or a nurse to bring a pill
I got a dirty down addiction that doesn't leave a track
I got a jolt /1) толчок столкновение, тряска  3) сл. приговор к тюремному заключению
4) сл. инъекция наркотика
/ for your affection like a monkey on my back
There ain't no paramedic gonna save this heart attack

I need a respirator 'cause I'm running out of breath
You're an all night generator wrapped \завёрнутый, замотанный\ in stockings and a dress
When you find your medicine you take what you can get
'Cause if there's something better baby, well, they haven't found it yet

 

Your love is like bad medicine

Barbra Streisand - Woman In Love (1980)

 


 

Life is a moment in space
When the dream is gone
It's a lonelier place
I kiss the morning good-bye
But down inside you know
We never know why

 

The road is narrow and long
When eyes meet eyes
And the feeling is strong
I turn away from the wall
I stumble and fall
But I give you it all

 

I am a woman in love
And I'd do anything
To get you into my world
And hold you within
It's a right I defend \отстаивть\
Over and over again
What do I do?

 

With you eternally \вечно\ mine
In love there is
No measure of time
We planned it all at the start
That you and I
Live in each other's heart

 

We may be oceans away
You feel my love
I hear what you say
No truth is ever a lie
I stumble \споткнуться\ and fall
But I give you it all

 

I am a woman in love
And I'd do anything
To get you into my world
And hold you within \внутри\
It's a right I defend
Over and over again
What do I do?

 

I am a woman in love
And I'm talkin' to you
I know how you feel
What a woman can do
It's a right I defend
Оver and over again

 

I am a woman in love
And I'd do anything
To get you into my world
And hold you within
It's a right I defend
Over and over again
What do I do?

 

 

 Let's have fun
