These

a cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces
an airline ticket to romantic places
and still my heart has wings
these foolish things remind me of you

a tinkling piano in the next apartment
those stumblin' words that told you what my heart meant
a fairground's painted swings
these foolish things remind me of you

you came, you saw, you conquered me
when you did that to me
i knew somehow this had to be

Foolish

the winds of march that make my heart a dancer
a telephone that rings but who's to answer?
oh, how the ghost of you clings
these foolish things remind me of you

the scent of smouldering leaves the wail of steamers
two lovers on the street who walk like dreamers
oh how the ghost of you clings
these foolish things
remind me of you

Things

how strange, how sweet, to find you still
these things are dear to me
they seem to bring you so near to me

the sigh of midnight trains in empty stations
silk stockings thrown aside dance invitations
oh how the ghost of you clings
these foolish things
remind me of you

Bom Ano !

Quando eu era pequenito,
por esta altura
dizia à minha avó:

"Bom Ano, Avózinha !"

Ela respondia:

"Sim, sim..."
"Olha, liga o rádio."
"Põe música !"

Bom Ano ! E muita música !

Para começar bem o ano novo,
deixo-vos com a minha mais recente
descoberta e paixão musical.
Juro-vos que vão ouvir falar
muito dela nos próximos anos...

Beijos e Abraços

Corduroy

the train is so cold tonight
my fingers too numb to write
but i write to spite the cold
and moon i can see you there
you're still hanging in there
though you are so very old

and i'm just thinking about a boy
wearing wintergreen corduroy
.
you're waking me where i sleep
you're taking me where i keep on
telling myself not to go
what am i supposed to do
all by myself without you
on a train moving so slow

i'm just thinking about a boy
wearing wintergreen corduroy

.

Corduroy

on the train again
moving away from you
on the train again
i never wanted to leave
.
the sun has set in the west
the moon is doing her best
to light up the sky tonight
i look to the moon for you
maybe you're looking too
it's really a lovely sight
.

and i'm just thinking about a boy
wearing my wintergreen corduroy
.
on the train again
moving away from you
on the train again
i never intended to leave you
.
the train is so cold
.

would you mind if i call you sweetheart
i found your voice upon my tape
and i was listenin' to you
till i fell asleep it was getting late
and i know it's you out on the sidewalk
i was hopin' i would meet
somethin' always hits me
and it's not concrete beneath my feet
and it's not cold
it's not the heat

Autumn

autumn falling from trees
the snow is up to our knees
i let you borrow my keys
to sleep in my room

you threw away my shoe
i brought you to central park zoo
then i drew your eyes very blue
and i stuck them on the fridge

and i believe it was you
who i wanted to be walking next to
and i believe we were friends
and i believe we will be again

so you sighed and swept your broom
under the wintery moon
well i called up this afternoon
your words were
"goodbye, goodbye, goodbye"

Fallin'

and i believe it was you
who i wanted to be talking to
and i believe we were friends
and i believe we will be again

oh, if i knock on your door would you let me in?
do you know any more than i do?

keep on wonderin' about you
even if you don't want me to
the girl you once knew
is the person we are

and i believe it was you
who i wanted to be walking next to
and i believe we were friends
and i believe we will be again

Jaymay

Jaymay

is this love, is this it?
if it is i like it
and if it's love
please stay love, don't go away love
don't go away
don't go away love, don't go away
don't go away love, don't go away

Le Plus Beau

regardez-moi
je suis le plus beau du quartier
j'suis l'bien aimé
dès qu'on me voit
on se sent tout comme envouté
comme charmé, hum
lorsque j'arrive
les femmes elles me frolent de leurs
regards penchés
bien malgré moi, hé
je suis le plus beau du quartier, hum, hum, hum
.
est-ce mon visage
ma peau si finement grainée
mon air suave
est-ce mon allure
est-ce la grâce anglo-saxonne
de ma cambrureest-ce mon sourire
ou bien l'élégance distinguée
de mes cachemires
quoi qu'il en soit
c'est moi le plus beau du quartier, hum, mais
.

mais prenez garde à ma beauté
a mon exquise ambiguïté
je suis le roi
du désirable
et je suis l'indéshabillable
observez-moi, hum, hum, hum

Du Quartier

observez-moi de haut en bas
vous n'en verrez pas deux comme ca
j'suis l'favori
le bel ami
de toutes ces dame
set d'leurs maris
regardez-moi
.
regardez-moi, hum, hum
je suis le plus beau du quartier
j'suis l'préférémes belles victimes
voudraient se pendre à mes lacets
ca les abîme
les bons messieurs, eux
voudraient tellement m'déshabiller
ca les obstine
bien malgré moi, oui bien malgré moi
je suis le plus beau du quartier, mais
.
mais prenez garde à ma beauté
a mon exquise ambiguïté
je suis le roi
du désirable
et je suis l'indéshabillable
observez-moi, hum, hum, hum
observez-moi de haut en bas
vous n'en verrez pas deux comme ca
j'suis l'favori
le p'tit chéri
de toutes ces dames
et d'leurs maris
aussi, oui
