Twenty Flight Rock

フランク・タシュリン監督の『女はそれを我慢できない』(The Girl Can’t Help It, 1956) にある Eddie Cochran の曲。ジャン=リュック・ゴダールの 1957 年度のベスト・ワンは、もちろんニコラス・レイ監督の『にがい勝利』(Bitter Victory, 1957) だが、フランク・タシュリンの映画が 2 本もベストテンに入っている。ゴダールはフランク・タシュリンを最も褒めた人ではないだろうか。

 

 

Ooh, well I got a girl with a record machine

When it comes to rockin' she's the queen

We love to dance on a Saturday night

All alone where I can hold her tight

But she lives on the twentieth floor uptown

The elevator's broken down

 

So I'll walk one, two flight, three flight, four

Five, six, seven flight, eight flight, more

Up on the twelfth I'm startin' to drag

Fifteenth floor I'm a-ready to sag

Get to the top, I'm too tired to rock

 

When she calls me up on the telephone

Say, come on over honey, I'm all alone

I said, baby you're mighty sweet

But I'm in bed with the achin' feet

This went on for a couple of days

But I couldn't stay away

 

So I'll walk one, two flight, three flight, four

Five, six, seven flight, eight flight, more

Up on the twelfth I'm startin' to drag

Fifteenth floor I'm a-ready to sag

Get to the top, I'm too tired to rock

 

Well, they sent to Chicago for repairs

Till it's a-fixed I'm a-usin' the stairs

Hope they hurry up before it's too late

Want my baby too much to wait

All this climbin' is a-gettin' me down

They'll find my corpse draped over a rail

 

But I'll climb one, two flight, three flight, four

Five, six, seven flight, eight flight, more

Up on the twelfth I'm startin' to drag

Fifteenth floor I'm a-ready to sag

Get to the top, I'm too tired to rock
