Перевод песни Judy Garland – Born in a Trunk

Работает на технологии Яндекс.Переводчика
Thank you very much
I can't express it any other way
For with this awful trembling in my heart
I just can't find another thing to say
I'm happy that you liked the show
I'm grateful you liked me And I'm sure to you the tributes seemed quite right
But if you knew of all the years
Of hopes and dreams and tears
You'd know it didn't happen overnight
I was born in a trunk in the Princess Theater
In Pocatello, Idaho
It was during a matinee on Friday
And they used a makeup towel for my didee
When I first saw the light it was pink and amber
Coming from the footlights on the stage
When my dad carried me out there to say hello
They tell me that I stopped the show
So I grew up in a crazy world
Of dressing rooms and hotel rooms
And waiting rooms and rows behind the scenes
And I can't forget the endless rows of sleepless nights
And heatless nights and nights without a nickel in my jeans
But it's all in the game and way you play it And you've gotta play the game you know
When you're born in a trunk at the Princess Theater
In Pocatello, Idaho
At first I just stood and watched from the wings
That's all my mom and dad would allow
But as I got older
I got a little bolder
And snuck out for their second bow
They kept me in the act because they needed me to milk applause
Until one night, they did a crazy thing
They left me out there all alone
Mama said, «You're on your own»
And Papa shouted, «This is it, kid! Sing!'
I'll get by As long as I Have you
Though there be rain
And darkness, too
I'll not complain
I'll see it through
I learned very quickly the tricks of the trade
I practiced after everyone was gone
And with the tricks, I learned traditions, and the hardest one of all
Was: No matter what, the show must go on As time went by, I looked for jobs
And was kicked from pillar to post
I haunted all the agents' offices
And I almost ended up a ghost
(Instrumental break)
I'm a sentimental sap, that's all
What's the use of tryin' not to fall?
I have no will
You made your kill
'Cause you took advantage of me No!
I'm just like an apple on the bough
And you're gonna shake me down somehow
So what's the use?
You cooked my goose
'Cause you took advantage of me No!
I'm so hot and bothered that I don't know
My elbow from my ear
Suffer somethin' awful each time you go But it's much worse when you're near
Here am I with all my bridges burned
Just a babe in arms where you're concerned
So lock the doors
And call me yours
'Cause you took advantage of me Yes!
So I got into a tab show
All I did was kick my feet
You'd hardly call it a chance to sing
But at least it was a chance to eat
They call it black bottom, a new twister
Sure got 'em, oh sister!
They clap their hands and do a raggedy trot, hot!
Old fellows with lumbago
With high yellers, away they go!
They jump right in and give it all that they've got!
Then one night something happened
Dame Fortune showed her face
The star got sick
And I was told to go on in her place
But she recovered. Oh, well
Black bottom
A new rhythm
When you spot 'em
You go with 'em!
And do that black black bottom all day!
But finally I got an offer to sing in New York
And I wired them, «I'm on my way!»
I had visions that this would be A fabulous, famous cafe
Filled with high society
Elegant and spruce
And I pictured me The epitome
Of a very chic chanteuse
Through every city, town, and country lane
You hear him sing his plaintive little strain
And as he goes by, he'll say to you
Sing «Melancholy Baby»!
The little children like to play along
They like to hear the peanut vendor's song
They rally when he will say
Play «Melancholy Baby»!
Come to me, my melancholy baby
Cuddle up and don't be blue
All your fears are foolish fancy maybe
You know, dear, that I'm in love with you
Every cloud must have a silver lining
Wait until the sun shines through
Smile, my honey dear
While I kiss away each tear
Or else I shall be melancholy too
My benefactor appeared with his card, and at first, I thought he was fresh.
He was fresh from heaven, all right
He produced the show that gave me the chance
To sing for you tonight
How I love ya, how I love ya My dear old Swanee
I'd give the world to be Among the folks in D-I-X-I-E
I know my mammy's
Waitin' for me, prayin' for me Down by the Swanee
The folks up north will see me no more
When I get to that Swanee shore
I'm comin' back to Swanee
I love the old folks at home
I loves ya Swanee
How I love ya, how I love ya My dear old Swanee
I'd give the world if I could only be Sittin' on my mammy's knee
I love the old folks
I love the young folks
Oh, my honey lamb you'll
Love me down in Alabammy
My dear old mammy
Your wand'rin' child will wander no more
When I get to that Swanee shore
So I can't quite be called «overnight sensation»
For it started many years ago
When I was born in a trunk in the Princess Theater
In Pocatello, Idaho
