Gilbert and Sullivan 歌劇最出名的應是 Mikado(日本天皇)。G and S 到底是誰,以前老酥偶介紹很多,忘記的可到這網站看。

https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/吉爾伯特與薩利文

 

Mikado 裏頭有首歌,就叫它:I've got a liitle list。應該可算是全世界最民主的歌之一吧!?(如果,不是唯一的話)記得老酥偶在小時候(中學時),“聽說” 英國的海德堡公園,有個肥皂箱。任何人只要一站到箱上,就可為所欲言不犯法!

 

這首歌有點這意思。唱的是,我有一張要砍頭的名單(I've got a liitle list)。原著者的歌詞,可以任憑演唱者(好像站到肥皂箱上)改,把他要 “砍頭” 的,唱出來。老酥偶現在連這首歌,演唱的是在 2011 年的澳洲。所以,當然,他會唱很多 “時事”。老酥偶就把歌詞 copy 如下,然後解釋某些時事。 

 

Mitchell Butel(演唱者)of Avenue Q fame sings "I've Got a Little List" from Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado. This excerpt is from the cinema/DVD recording of Opera Australia's 2011 production at the Arts Centre, Melbourne.

Lyrics: 
As someday it may happen that a victim must be found,
I've got a little list. I've got a little list --》 有一天,我要找到一個犯罪者來砍頭(為什麼,以後老酥偶慢慢寫此劇再談。當然,這劇情絕對是荒謬的。這就是 G & S 歌劇的特色),我有張名單。
Of society offenders who might well be underground
And who never would be missed, who never would be missed.

There's the idiot denouncing with enthusiastic tone
All football teams(澳洲人最瘋澳式足球)but his and every suburb but his own(只支持球迷所住的地區的球隊).
The man who sits beside you on the plane and wants to talk,
Whose jabbering inspires you to jab him with your fork.
Your aunty with the moustache who insists on being kissed.
They'd none of them be missed, they'd none of them be missed.

(He's got them on the list! He's got them on the list!
And they'd none of them be missed! They'd none of them be missed!) --》坐在旁邊的那些,臉畫的怪怪的日本尖頭鰻,在旁邊吃包啊話燒!

Those whinging letter writers and those pundits in the press.
That opinion columnist, that bore would not be missed.(諷刺記者。在台灣應是 “名嘴” 吧!?^_^)
That trendy thing in opera if the plot seems like a mess,
That nice surtitlist! 
(Surtitles: 'This song is not on my list. Normal transmission will resume shortly')

The politician prancing round in speedos tightly packed,
He thought it cool but really it just showed us what he lacked.(前澳洲總理 Tony Abbot,在競選前,曾有一次參加游泳慈善募款。他當時穿了一件很小的泳褲,秀 6 塊 + 好幾塊肌。台灣的話,有點像馬英九秀長腿吧?^_^)
And Canberra's leading red-head who's afraid of stickybeaks,(澳洲當時的首相,朱莉亞吉拉德。她是紅髮)
Who'd like to keep her fumbles and mistakes off Wikileaks.(澳洲的維基泄密新聞)
Australian Idol singers who pathetically persiiiiiiiiiist.(歌唱選秀節目)
They'd none of them be missed. They'd none of them be missed.

(He's got them on the list! He's got them on the list!
And they'd none of them be missed! They'd none of them be missed!)

And the purists who insist piano music stops at Brahms,
I'll put them on the list, and make them sit through Liszt.
On Saturday night the mob at Flinder's Street all singing psalms,(在中心大車站唱福音詩歌傳到,這件事澳洲某教會曾要告到法院,但當然是演唱者無罪!)
I wish they would desist, and their happy claps resist.
That music theatre sequel that they promised would be good,
"Love never dies" they say, but I confess I wish it would.(出名的歌劇魅影,續集叫愛永不滅。首演在澳洲)

That Frenchman and the other one who judge My Kitchen Rules,(澳洲煮菜比賽的節目)
Who give new definition to the label 'Kitchen Tools'.
That morning television host who's funny as a cyst,
Gold Logies he has kissed, but it's time to kiss my fist.(澳洲主持人金馬獎)

(He's got them on the list! He's got them on the list!
And they'd none of them be missed! They'd none of them be missed!)

Then the merchant banker wankers and the bonuses they flout,
And the subprimortgagist, I've got him on the list!(2008 年的全世界金融風暴,次房貸銀行)
The governments like lapdogs rushing in to bail them out,(用政府錢救股市,銀行的)
To their mills it's simply grist, so I've got them on the list. 
Retirees who migrate to the country to make wine,
And Britney Spears for accidentally showing her 'vagine'.(小甜甜?的八卦)
Those climate change deniers who don't like the carbon tax,
Who haven't read the science and don't really know the facts.(像目前的川普,不同意全球溫室效應)
The women on the tram who at Spring Carnaval got pi-- really drunk!
Narelle! Where are my shoes?!(澳洲最出名的賽馬節,很多女士穿的很漂亮,帶頭飾,但喝醉酒的一堆)
They'd none of them be missed. They'd none of them be missed.

(You may put them on the list. You may put them on the list.
And they'd none of them be missed! They'd none of them be missed!)

There's the ticket holder next to you who cannot work their phone,
And cannot get the gist. I've got her on the list!
Who leaves it on or switches to that dreadful silent drone... Vrrrrrr Vrrrrr Vrrrrr
Facebook fiends and Twitterists are also on the list.(手機)
And people who inflict on us full cycles of the Ring,
I'd rather ride a valkyrie than hear Brunhilde sing.(當時,澳洲正在上演華格納的尼布龍指環)
And all commercial managements who want to cast a star,
They couldn't get one this time, they got me, so there you are.
Or worst of all the actor who's an extra lyricist,
I don't think he'd be missed, so I've got him on the list.(演唱者的自嘲)

(You may put them on the list! You may put them on the list! 
And they'd none of them be missed! They'd none of them be missed!)

 

就醬了,隨便亂翻。如果,有興趣(又懶得查字典)的格友,請發問!^_^

  • 這可以自己加歌詞,不就像以前的急智歌王,隨時可依照時事來改,也挺有趣的。
    欲加之罪,何患無辭,要開名單可以開出很多來喔。呵呵))
  • 是啊!⋯⋯^_^

  • 安媽
  • 原來這是澳洲歌手改編的歌啊。難怪裡頭有很多和澳洲有關的典故,我都看不太懂,需要靠老酥偶解釋。我想很多不是澳洲人的聽眾,也未必會知道澳洲的前總理、首相是誰,更別說一些比較瑣碎的事情了。
  • 是啊!

    不過,只要您上 YouTube,一定可以找到美國版的!^_^

  • 這個演唱者要砍頭的名單有參考老酥偶的文章嗎?
    感覺上有幾個是您談過的話題
    連我跟您抱怨打瞌睡的尼布龍指環也上名單了。哈哈
  • 英雄所見略同!^_^

  • 應該不會吧!^_^
