続 Manhattan in The Rain

今朝書いたNormaのManhattan in The Rainの詩だけれど、
ある人から、全文を教えてもらうことが出来た。

Normaは多少モデファイして歌っているようだけれど。。。
強がりじゃないけれど、僕の想像してたシーンは8割くらい合っていたかな。
ちょっとため息が出るなあ。

 「What a strange enchanted way to meet someone in mid Manhattan in the rain」

以下、参考までに詩の全文を。

Caught in Mid Manhattan in a swift midsummer downpour
I was caught with no umbrella and I couldn't find a taxi.
Everybody ran for cover, and the traffic stood like cattle in the rain.

Finally I saw a cab and ran and held my hand up,
But I didn't notice someone else was running for the taxi
So we bumped into each other, suddenly both of us went sprawling in the rain.

What a strange enchanted way to meet someone in mid Manhattan in the rain

You were so apologetic, I was so embarrased.
Then you helped me to my feet and then we both said it was our fault,
But we laughed and introduced ourselves, and shared that yellow taxi in the
rain.

Then we stopped and had a dry Martini in a bistro,
And we sat and talked for hours just like a scene from some old movie,
And we knew that something special seemed to happen in that bistro in the Rain

What a strange enchanted way to meet in mid-Manhattan New York in the rain

But nothing stays the same, does it?
And people change, don't they?
And all those bright wonderful dreams start to come apart at the seams.

Rain in little rivers makes a pathway down my window
And I slowly draw a circle and I watch the waiting taxi.
As I watch you throw your bags in then I know I won't be seeing you again.

Suddenly the taxi's gone and taken my life with it
And the rain soaked street is empty then I see two people sharing and umbrella
And I watch them smile and close my eyes and live it all again

Isn't it strange to meet someone and say goodbye in mid-Manhattan in the rain


What a strange enchanted way to meet someone in mid Manhattan in the rain
