Any Place I Hang My Hat Is Home

/l/ と/r/ ばかりやっていたら、周波数強調がかかりすぎて /l/ を聞くと耳がキンキンするので休憩。Harold Arlen 作曲、Johny Mercer 作詞による1946年のミュージカル “St. Louis Woman” の曲である。Barbara Streisand のものが最も有名だろう。

 

Free and easy
That's my style
Howdy-do me?
Watch me smile
But fare-the-well me
After a while
Cause I gotta roam
And any place I hang my hat is home
Sweetenin' water
Cherry wine
Thank you kindly
Suits me fine
Kansas city even carolina
That's my honeycomb
'Cause any place I hang my hat is home

Birds roostin' in a tree
Pick up and go
And the goin' proves
That's how it oughta to be
Pick up too when the spirit moves me
Cross the river
'Round the bend
Howdy stranger?
So long friend!
There's a voice in the lonesome wind
Keeps a whispering roam
I'm going where a welcome mat is
No matter where that is
'Cause any place I hang my hat is home
