玫瑰玫瑰我爱你 - Rose Rose I love you

玫瑰玫瑰我愛你, 原名「玫瑰啊玫瑰」,作詞吳村,
作曲陳歌辛。其原唱者為1930年代上海著名歌星姚莉,
後在台灣、香港等地都被多名歌手翻唱。

當然最流行的是Frankie Laine的版本(1951),
這是第一首中文歌配上英文曲詞, 而能世界流行的。(是唯一?)
而且在英美樂都能打進流行榜十名內

除上還包括板本久Kyu Sakamoto
和英國女歌手Petula Clark.

但可惜這首歌的英文歌詞不是讚中國美女,
而是讚馬來亞之花!

Rose, Rose I love you with an aching heart
What is your future?
now we have to part
Standing on the jetty as the steamer moves away
Flower of Malaya, I cannot stay
Make way, oh, make way for my Eastern Rose
Men crowd in dozens everywhere she goes
In her rickshaw on the street or in a cabaret
"Please make way for Rose" you can hear them say
All my life I shall remember Oriental music and you in my arms
Perfumed flowers in your tresses
Lotus-scented breezes and swaying palms
Rose, Rose I love you with your almond eyes
Fragrant and slender 'neath tropical skies
I must cross the seas again and never see you more
'way back to my home on a distant shore
(All my life I shall remember)
(Oriental music and you in my arms)
(Perfumed flowers in your tresses)
(Lotus-scented breezes and swaying palms)
Rose, Rose I leave you, my ship is in the bay
Kiss me farewell now, there's nothin' to say
East is East and West is West, our worlds are far apart
I must leave you now but I leave my heart
Rose, Rose I love you with an aching heart
What is your future?, now we have to part
Standing on the jetty as the steamer moves away
Flower of Malaya, I cannot stay
(Rose, Rose I love you, I cannot stay)
