年轻的乐团C21来自遥远的北欧童话之国,很快就成为了流行音乐的新贵,进而引领流行乐坛新潮流。今天我们要学习他们带来的一首歌唱曼谷夜生活的歌曲:One night in Bangkok,(曼谷一夜),这首歌的歌词幽默并富有哲理,旋律也相当地优美动人。


  Bangkok, Oriental setting
  And the city don't know that the city is getting
  The creme de la creme of the chess world in a
  Show with everything but Yul Brynner

  Time flies - doesn't seem a minute
  Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
  All change - don't you know that when you
  Play at this level there's no ordinary venue

  It's Iceland... or the Philippines... or Hastings... or... or this place!

  One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
  The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
  You'll find a god in every golden cloister
  And if you're lucky then the god's a she
  I can feel an angel sliding up to me

  One town's very like another
  When your head's down over your pieces, brother

  It's a drag, it's a bore, it's really such a pity
  To be looking at the board, not looking at the city

  Whaddya mean? Ya seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town...

  Tea, girls, warm, sweet, sweet
  Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite

  Get Thai'd! You're talking to a tourist
  Whose every move's among the purest
  I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine

  One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
  Not much between despair and ecstasy
  One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
  Can't be too careful with your company
  I can feel the devil walking next to me

  Siam's gonna be the witness
  To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
  This grips me more than would a
  Muddy old river or reclining Buddha

  And thank God I'm only watching the game, controlling it

  I don't see you guys rating
  The kind of mate I'm contemplating
  I'd let you watch, I would invite you
  But the queens we use would not excite you

  So you better go back to your bars, your temples, your massage parlours

  One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
  The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
  You'll find a god in every golden cloister
  A little flesh, a little history
  I can feel an angel sliding up to me

  One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
  Not much between despair and ecstasy
  One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
  Can't be too careful with your company
  I can feel the devil walking next to me
