Pineapple Princess

まず、昨日の曲 (It’s M’y Party) には続編の ”Judy ‘s Turn to Cry” (1963) があるので、一応紹介しておく。Judy’s の s は……もう説明はやめておく。

この曲のあるアルバムは、”cry” を主題にしているが、そこから好きな “Just Let Me Cry”.

Oh, stars on high, why can't I make you see
that I don't want your light to shine on me?
He said good-bye. Just let me cry.
Don't let me hear the robins sing above.
What good's their song if I've no one to love?
He said good-bye. Just let me cry.
Hide every lovely flower from my sight.
Don't let that dreamy moon come out, oh, tonight.
And please don't let me see two lovers kiss.
Don't let me be reminded what I miss.
He said goodbye. Just let me cry.
He said goodbye. Just let me cry.
Just let me cry. Just let me cry……

全然変わって、1960 年の Anette Funicello の歌。今でもこの曲でフラダンスしている人をよく見るなあ。

田代みどり:

Let’s take our beach party to the beautiful island of Oahu, where he sang this song to me all day long.

Pineapple princess, 
He calls me pineapple princess all day
As he plays his ukulele
On the hill above the bay.
“Pineapple princess, I love you.
You're the sweetest girl I've seen.
Some day we're gonna marry
And you'll be my pineapple queen.”

I saw a boy on Oahu isle,
Floating down the bay on a crocodile.
He waved at me, and he swam ashore,
And I knew he'd be mine forevermore.
Pineapple princess, 
He calls me pineapple princess all day
As he plays his ukulele
On the hill above the bay.
“Pineapple princess, I love you.
You're the sweetest girl I've seen.
Some day we're gonna marry
And you'll be my pineapple queen.” 

He sings his song from banana trees.
He even sings to me on his water skis.
We went skin-diving and beneath the blue.
He sang and played his ukulele, too. 

“Pineapple princess, I love you.
You're the sweetest girl I've seen.
Some day we're gonna marry
And you'll be my pineapple queen.”

We'll settle down in a bamboo hut.
And he will be my own little coconut.
Then we'll be beachcombing royalty
On wicky wicky wacky Waikiki.

Pineapple princess,
He calls me pineapple princess all day
As he plays his ukulele
On the hill above the bay.
“Pineapple princess, I love you.
You're the sweetest girl I've seen.
Some day we're gonna marry
And you'll be my pineapple queen.”
