《BoNNiE-DaY BY DaY...》「英國人在紐約」An Englishman in New York

 



已經很久沒看西片,過年無意中看到這部2009年發行的電影「英國人在紐約」(An Englishman in New York),劇情描述英國同志作家Quentin Crisp在紐約的生活故事,一個人看著劇情中Quentin睿智幽默的口才和人生態度,真想拍手叫好。

直到在片尾音樂出現1988年Sting同名的單曲「Englishman In New York」,回想當年就很喜歡Sting這首歌好聽又能朗朗上口,上網查詢這才恍然大悟,原來Sting這首歌就是寫Quentin Crisp。

20年後終於了解Sting寫的歌詞,原來這首還有這麼深沉的意義,Be yourself no matter what they say!

有機會先看這部電影,再一次聽這首歌! (MV裡一直出現的人物就是Quentin Crisp)



I don’t take coffee I take tea my dear
I like my toast done on one side
And you can hear it in my accent when I talk
I’m an englishman in new york

See me walking down fifth avenue
A walking cane here at my side
I take it everywhere I walk
I’m an englishman in new york

I’m an alien I’m a legal alien
I’m an englishman in new york
I’m an alien I’m a legal alien
I’m an englishman in new york

If, manners maketh man as someone said
Then he’s the hero of the day
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Be yourself no matter what they say

I’m an alien I’m a legal alien
I’m an englishman in new york
I’m an alien I’m a legal alien
I’m an englishman in new york

Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety
You could end up as the only one
Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
At night a candle’s brighter than the sun

Takes more than combat gear to make a man
Takes more than a license for a gun
Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
A gentleman will walk but never run

If, manners maketh man as someone said
Then he’s the hero of the day
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Be yourself no matter what they say

I’m an alien I’m a legal alien
I’m an englishman in new york
I’m an alien I’m a legal alien
I’m an englishman in new york

(Sting, Nothing Like The Sun)
