Over the Rainbow

この曲 (Have You Met Miss Jones?) はすでに紹介済みだが、1937年の Rodgers & Hart が作ったものを 1961 年に Sarah Vaughn が歌ったものである。スタンダードでは男性・女性を入れ替えて歌うのはよくあることだが、 Miss Jones を Old Jones に変えて歌っている。

 

 

※ ole = old 

Have you met ole Jones
Someone said as we shook hands
He was just ole Jones to me

Then I said ole Jones
You're a guy who understands
I'm someone who must be free

 

And all at once I lost my breath
And all at once was scared to death
And all at once I own the earth and sky

Now I met ole Jones
And we’ll keep on meeting till we die
Ole Jones and I

 

I'm someone who must be free
And all at once I lost my breath
And all at once was scared to death
And all at once I own the earth and sky

 

Now I met ole Jones
And we’ll keep on meeting till we die
Ole Jones and I
Ole Jones and I

Over the Rainbow”  を歌う Sarah Vaughn の口の動きが参考になる。

 

 

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
Really do come true.

 

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
Away above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me.

 

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

 

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
Away above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me.

 

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?
