老歌亂談(八)Living Next Door To Alice

推薦 1 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台

 

上禮拜天去喝喜酒,隔壁也是「同學桌」,坐了一位頭髮已白,但長相斯文、帥到不行,不知是何方神聖的男子,後來他起身來我們這桌敬酒,自報姓名後原來是位學弟,這位學弟當年在學校時曾和我在同個社團,大家算是相當相當的熟稔。後來我問他知不知道我是誰?靠!開始時他竟然也是一臉茫然。 

大多數人的外表都會隨著時間改變,但很難說會是哪個時期(幼、青、中、壯、老)最好看最有魅力,而一般所謂的黃金時期通常也不過是個五六、七八年。我認為Chris Norman在和Suzi Quatro合唱時應是他最成熟最有魅力的時期,《Living Next Door To Alice》也是那時期的作品,而之後的老態就愈來愈不怎麼能看了。 這首歌我當年就有些印象,看到影音後更是喜歡,歌詞也淺顯易懂。大家或許可以回想一下,在年輕時,鄰居是否也有一位像Alice的女孩呢?哈哈哈!

另,Chrise彈的那把吉他真水,是12弦的,所以每個手指要壓2弦,以前朋友也有一把,試過不怎麼好彈。




Sally called when she got the word

And she said, "I suppose you've heard about Alice"
So I rushed to the window and I looked outside
And I could hardly believe my eyes
As a big Limousine rolled up into Alice's drive

Oh, I don't know why she's leaving or where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reasons but I just don't wanna know
'Cos for twenty-four years I've been living next door to Alice
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance
To tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
Now I've gotta get used to not living next door to Alice

We grew up together, two kids in the park
We carved our initials, deep in the bark, me and Alice
Now she walks through the door with her head held high
Just for a moment, I caught her eye
As the big Limousine pulled slowly out of Alice's drive


Oh, I don't know why she's leaving or where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reasons but I just don't wanna know
'Cos for twenty-four years I've been living next door to Alice
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance
To tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
Now I've gotta get used to not living next door to Alice

Sally called back and asked how I felt
And she said, "I know how to help, get over Alice"
She said, "Now Alice is gone but I'm still here
You know I've been waiting for twenty-four years"
And the big Limousine dissapeared

Oh, I don't know why she's leaving or where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reasons but I just don't wanna know
'Cos for twenty-four years I've been living next door to Alice
Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance
To tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance
Now I've gotta get used to not living next door to Alice

Now I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice
