I smile, but she doesn't see...

Wheel of Lyricism, turn, turn turn! Tell us the lyric that we should learn! And today's lyric is...
Oh... how I watch her so sadly...
How... can I tell her I love her?
Yes... I would give my heart gladly...
But each day, as she walks to the sea,
She looks straight ahead, not at me...

Yes! I have renewed love for that song after hearing it last night working a John Pizzarelli Trio concert...

I know it in French! :-) It is a good song.

"Grande et mince, et belle et douce,
la fille d'Ipanema se pousse,
sur le rivage et toute la plage fait ahhhhhhh..."

My foreign language education was heavy on music and songs. It was fun!

Whoa! I can sing that!

Man, I wish I'd had more songs in my French classes. Though I did get to translate children's books...

"Aimez-vous les oeuf vert et jambon?"

"Je ne les aime pas les oeuf vert et jambon. Je ne les aime pas, Sam-Je-suis, non!"

"Veux tu, peux tu, dans une boite? Veux tu, peux tu, avec une chat?"
