Je l'ai déjà dit dans "Partage de trésors" mais bon, j'adore ce concert, et tout particulièrement la chanson 50 words or less, où Julie tente de se décrire en 50 mots.
En voici les paroles (en anglais, mais bon...)
How does one describe ones life in 50 words or less?,
How does one reflect the years it took to make this mess?
This tangled web, this pile of facts, this file of varied scenes and acts,
that form the summon substance of a life that's still in transit.
Well if I were a dancer I would dance it,
and if I had an instrument I'd play it,
but since I neither dance nor play,
I'll have to find another way,
a simple way for me to try and say it.
50 words or less, that's not as easy as it sounds.
Well I guess for starters I could use some words that others have used to describe me over the years,
They used to say, Isn't she the nicest, Isn't she the neatest,
can't imagine there ever could have been some half so wholesome,
half so winsome, but when all is said and done,
Isn't she the sweetest one.
There's more. Isn't she serene,
Look how pert and perky,
nothing mean or dark or murky lurks beneath that pristine form,
she is all things sunny, bright and warm...
Nice, neat, wholesome, winsome, sweet, pert and perky and pristine,
Bright and sunny, warm and serene.
If you can count through all that sugar that's 13.
50 words or less, make a good impression.
Make a full confession, make a calculated guess,
In 50 words or less.
Well others have said uhm,
Rainbows radiate around her and she makes us feel real good that we have found her,
she's our Mary Poppins, our Maria Von Trapp.
And, and folks back home say, well the thing I like about her is she cuts through all that crap..sorry
I've known her all me life I have
and she's a real good sport, she whistles in the dark it's true,
but she's a sturdy sort,
Loyal to the bitter end, helpful mate, trustworthy friend,
Curtious, kind, obedient to, thrifty, brave, clean right through
reverence is what she's all about...
Oh god, they make me sound like a bloody boy scout.
Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, curtious, kind, obedient, cheerful.
Thrifty, Brave, clean and reverent and a sturdy sort, thank heaven.
That's 14 more.........If you're keeping score....
For a total of 27
Well my best friends say,
She's womanly too and feminine and sexy, well that's a little bold.
Exotic and audacious, erotic and flirtatious..ooh
Neurotic, masochistic, vindictive, crude and cold....
Now just a second, I am not cold.
I'm aloof perhaps, or shy perhaps, or keeping under wraps perhaps,
but cold, not really, no not cold....
Take a calculated guess.
Well the family says......
She's also maternal, protective and wise
and Dad says childish at times with stars in her eyes
A full blown romantic come rain or come shine....
and the tally now comes to a full 49,
They have all had their day, they have all had their say.....
But the last word is mine.
Shall I make a good impression, shall I make a full confession,
Take a calculated guess....
well, my word is lucky, lucky.......
