玫瑰玫瑰我爱你 – Rose Rose I love you – 歌手:姚莉

Dont worry just be happy. Enough of sad songs for the moment. This is a happy, exuberance and fun song from the 40s sung by the forever popular songstress Yao Lie (姚莉). This is the original version.

Her voice and songs used to fill my childhood and neighbourhood. As far as i know, this was one of the first Mandarin that was successfully translated into English and became very popular. It was sung by Frankie Laine. The lyric is yuk and appalling. Whoever wrote that lyric ought to be shot, as it does not do any justice to the beauty of the original song.

Also my tribute to the elegant dancing of Fred and Ginger.

玫瑰玫瑰我爱你

曲:陈歌辛 词:吴材

歌手:姚莉 专辑:长恨歌电影原声大碟

玫瑰玫瑰最娇美, 玫瑰玫瑰最艳丽
长夏开在枝头上, 玫瑰玫瑰我爱你。

玫瑰玫瑰情意重, 玫瑰玫瑰情意浓
长夏开在荆棘里, 玫瑰玫瑰我爱你。

心的誓约,新的情意, 洁的光辉照大地
心的誓约,新的情意, 洁的光辉照大地。

玫瑰玫瑰枝儿细, 玫瑰玫瑰刺儿锐
今朝风雨来摧毁, 伤了嫩枝和娇蕊。

玫瑰玫瑰心儿坚, 玫瑰玫瑰刺儿尖
来日风雨来摧毁, 毁不了并蒂连理

Rose Rose I Love You

Performed by Frankie Laine

*Rose, Rose I love you with an aching heart
What is your future now we have to part
Standing on the jetty
As the steamer moves away
Flower of Malaya I can not stay

Make way, oh make way
For my eastern Rose
Men crowd in dozens, ev’rywhere she goes
In her rick’shaw on the street
Or in the cabaret
Please make way for Rose
You can hear them say

**All my life, I shall remember
Oriental music and you in muy arms
Perfumed flowers in your traces
Lotus scented breezes and swaying palms

Rose, Rose I love you
With your almond eyes
Fragrant and slender’neath tropical skies
I must cross the seas again
And never see you more
Way back to my home on a distant shore

(Repeat **)

Rose, Rose, I leave you
My ship is in the bay
Kiss me farewell now, there’s nothing to say
East is east and west is west
Our worlds are far apart
I must leave you now but I leave my heart
