Chet Baker嘅喇叭自然係百聽不厭,但佢全盛期嘅歌喉更係一絕。

But Not For Me
Music by George Gershwin
Arrangement by Chet Baker
Lyrics by Ira Gershwin

They’re writing songs of love, but not for me.
A lucky star’s above, but not for me.
With love to lead the way
I’ve found more clouds of grey
than any Russain play could guarantee.
I was a fool to fall and get that way;
Heigh-ho! Alas! And also, lack-a-day!
Although I can’t dismiss the mem’ry of her kiss,
I guess she’s not for me.

She’s knocking on a door, but not for me.
She’ll plan a two by four, but not for me.
I know that love’s a game;
I’m puzzled, just the same,
was I the moth or flame?
I’m all at sea.

It all began so well, but what an end!
This is the time a feller needs a friend,
when ev’ry happy plot ends with the marriage knot,
and there’s no knot for me.

女朋友

最喜歡寫實而生活化的歌詞。Jonathan CoultonA Laptop Like You是一個好例子,下面的一首亦是。

這兩年多以來,一直和一個好朋友在扮演歌詞中的男女角色。情況雖然不盡相同,但感覺極為相似(最少在男方的我而言)。所以,第一次聽到這首歌,便不禁啞然失笑。

你第一次喺我生命出現 係1095日前
望兩望好似似曾相識 一望正面根本唔識
咁都得 握下手 由三唔識七變咗好朋友
你係一個好女仔 就算唔係我都當你係
或者我有D老套 想同你表白又唔知點講好
如果有得發展我一定會 但係佢當咗我係姊妹

*我喜歡的女孩 她把我當女孩
 要想對她表白我的真愛
 她爸爸說我乖 她媽媽為我做菜
 我願意為她做女孩*

都唔知點算好 真係
我哋究竟係乜嘢關係 話複雜又唔係簡單又唔係
行街睇戲我哋照做 但係未去到拍拖既地步
一直想同你燭光晚餐 你實會叫我慳番
AA制先可以埋單 仲要拉埋我去同你試衫
你根本冇當過我係男人 呢種感受真係難忍
你有男朋友唔通我唔準 有時D嘢真係好矛盾
你話佢好理想 因為佢性格同我一模一樣

你說不能失去我 在你世界裡我就像太陽
沒了我你沒方向 你要我做你伴娘

Repeat*

為她做女孩 女孩
