音樂的誘惑The Temptations


The Temptations 是一隊由五位黑人歌手組成的合唱團,
善於演唱 Soul 和 R.&B 歌曲, 五位都是歌藝不凡,
皆可獨當一面, 他們用不同的音域造成很特別的和聲,
甚至用上假聲, 是motown音樂的表表者。
在60年代是一個新突破, 給歌迷帶來了新享受!
除歌藝之外, 他們站在台上的表演也非常精彩,
輕快而整齊的舞步非常悅目。
他們的唱片總銷量超過二千五百萬張,
四首歌上了Billboard Hot 100 榜首,
十四首上了 Billboard R&B 榜首,
得了三個Grammy Awards 。
他們的表演技考可見於現在的美國教會詩歌班內。

Papa Was A Rolling Stone (1972)




曲詞是描寫窮人家庭小孩的苦況

Papa Was a Rolling Stone
Lyrics
It was the third of September.That day I'll always remember, yes I will.'Cause that was the day that my daddy died.I never got a chance to see him.Never heard nothing but bad things about him.Mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the truth.And Mama just hung her head and said,"Son, Papa was a rolling stone.Wherever he laid his hat was his home.(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.""Papa was a rolling stone, my son.Wherever he laid his hat was his home.(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE."Well, well.Hey Mama, is it true what they say,that Papa never worked a day in his life?And Mama, some bad talk going around townsaying that Papa had three outside children and another wife.And that ain't right.Hey, talk about Papa doing some store front preaching.Talked about saving souls and all the time leeching.Dealing in debt and stealing in the name of the Lord.Mama just hung her head and said,"Papa was a rolling stone, my son.Wherever he laid his hat was his home.(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.""Hey, Papa was a rolling stone.Wherever he laid his hat was his home.(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE."Uh!Hey Mama, I heard Papa called himself a jack of all trades.Tell me is that what sent Papa to an early grave?Folks say Papa would beg, borrow, steal to pay his bills.Hey Mama, folks say that Papa was never much on thinking.Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking.Mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the truth.And Mama looked up with a tear in her eye and said,"Son, Papa was a rolling stone. (Well, well, well, well)Wherever he laid his hat was his home.(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.""Papa was a rolling stone.Wherever he laid his hat was his home.(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE.""I said, Papa was a rolling stone. Wherever he laid his hat was his home.(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE."
