Ella Fitzgerald – Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off

  • by

這首 Louis Armstrong 創作的名曲,原即很有趣,歌詞中的押韻由 Ella 唱起來更是趣味十足;
(呵,其實多算不上是押韻,只是因為口音不同造成的差異,但是歌詞把這些不同口音重疊出現,唱來就是押韻似的。)
那種甜蜜帶點嬌嗔的唱法,這曲子如果不是黑人來唱八成不會這麼恰到好處。
Ella Fitzgerald 真是一代爵士女伶呢!

歌詞如下:

Artist: Louis Armstrong Lyrics
Song: Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off

Verse
Things have come to a pretty pass
Our romance is growing flat,
For you like this and the other
While I go for this and that,
Goodness knows what the end will be
Oh I don’t know where I’m at
It looks as if we two will never be one
Something must be done:

Chorus – 1
You say either and I say either, You say neither and I say neither
Either, either Neither, neither, Let’s call the whole thing off.

You like potato and I like potahto, You like tomato and I like tomahto
Potato, potahto, Tomato, tomahto, Let’s call the whole thing off

But oh, if we call the whole thing off Then we must part
And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart

So if you like pyjamas and I like pyjahmas, I’ll wear pyjamas and give up
pyajahmas
For we know we need each other so we , Better call the whole off off
Let’s call the whole thing off.

Chorus – 2
You say laughter and I say larfter, You say after and I say arfter
Laughter, larfter after arfter, Let’s call the whole thing off,

You like vanilla and I like vanella, You saspiralla, and I saspirella
Vanilla vanella chocolate strawberry, Let’s call the whole thing off

But oh if we call the whole thing of then we must part
And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart

So if you go for oysters and I go for ersters, I’ll order oysters and cancel
the ersters
For we know we need each other so we, Better call the calling off off,
Let’s call the whole thing off.

Chorus – 3
I say father, and you say pater, I saw mother and you say mater
Pater, mater Uncle, auntie, let’s call the whole thing off.

I like bananas and you like banahnahs, I say Havana and I get Havahnah
Bananas, banahnahs Havana, Havahnah, Go your way, I’ll go mine

So if I go for scallops and you go for lobsters, So all right no contest we’ll
order lobseter
For we know we need each other so we, Better call the calling off off,
Let’s call the whole thing off.
