映画の力でQueenの人気が再燃していますが、やっぱりQueenは名曲ばかりです。私は昔、バンドを組んでいたので洋楽をよく聞いていましたが、その中でも、Queenもよく聞きました。


ということで、色々と曲を知っているのですが、その中でも特に可愛らしい曲を紹介したいと思います。Queenで可愛い?と思う方もいるかもしれませんが、実はあるのです。


その曲が「good old fashioned lover boy」です。聞いたことがない方もいると思いますので、こちらがyoutubeで聞ける動画です。




おそらくベスト盤にも入っていないと思いますが、個人的にはベスト盤に入る曲だと思っています。


続いて歌詞です。

I can dim the lights and sing you songs full of sad things

We can do the tango just for two

I can serenade and gently play on your heart strings

Be your Valentino just for you

Ooh love ooh loverboy

What're you doin' tonight, hey boy

Set my alarm, turn on my charm

That's because I'm a good old-fashioned lover boy

Ooh let me feel your heartbeat (grow faster, faster)

Ooh ooh can you feel my love heat, ooh

Come on and sit on my hot-seat of love

And tell me how do you feel right after-all

I'd like for you and I to go romancing

Say the word, your wish is my command

Ooh love ooh loverboy

What're you doin' tonight, hey boy

Write my letter

Feel much better

And use my fancy patter on the telephone

When I'm not with you

I think of you always

(I miss those long hot summer nights) I miss you

When I'm not with you

Think of me always

Love you, love you

Hey boy where do you get it from

Hey boy where did you go?

I learned my passion in the good old fashioned school of loverboys

Dining at the Ritz, we'll meet at nine precisely

(One two three four five six seven eight nine o' clock)

I will pay the bill, you taste the wine

Driving back in style, in my saloon will do quite nicely

Just take me back to yours that will be fine (come on and get it)

Ooh love, (there he goes again just like a good old-fashioned lover boy)

Ooh loverboy

What're you doin' tonight, hey boy

Everything's all right

Just hold on tight

That's because I'm a good old-fashioned fashioned lover boy


歌詞もかわいいですね。何度聴いても飽きないのはやっぱりクイーンのすごさだと思います。歴史に残る名バンドですね。
