老歌亂談(1114)Clap Your Hands and Stamp Your Feet

此曲為荷蘭語搖滾樂的開創者 ( founding Father ) Peter Koelewijn所寫,首錄發行的應是1972荷蘭女歌手/演員Bonnie St. Claire與Unit Gloria樂隊合作的版本。說起這位女歌手Claire和寫歌的Koelewijn還有些淵源,1966,在Koelewijn的一場音樂會上,Claire曾被邀請上台與他一起唱歌 ( Claire於同年出道,不知此是否為預先即安排好的?)。



而讓此曲流行開來的卻是南非女歌手Maria於1973發行的版本,在南非和羅德西亞 ( 現為辛巴威 ) 均為電台排行榜的冠軍曲,至今在當地也仍為非常普遍化的跳舞曲。紅顏薄命,Maria於1980因乳癌過世,僅享年35歲。


此曲的翻唱者也不少,以下另貼南非Campbell兄弟檔所組的樂團,其父親所帶來的鄉村組曲,老爸要來「插花」演唱,做兒子的也是無可奈何吧!

以下為Maria的版本,唱得也很不錯。

What I wanna say
Was it yesterday
That I saw you also there
Yes I know you tried
Close by my side
To draw my attention dear
But you understand
That I really can not come
In touch with you
But if you really will,
If you want it still
I tell you what you have to do
Well clap your hands
And stamp your feet
And I'll come runnin',
Runnin', runnin' baby
Well clap your hands
And stamp your feet
And I'll come running
Running, wait and see.
Huma la la la, Huma la la
Huma la la la la
And it's great to see
That you want just me
And I think I'm the happiest
Girl you've ever met
Just be sure of that
I'd like to tell it
The whole wide world
Every moment dear I wanna be near
I wished I had a crystal ball
So that immediately I knew
You needed me by doing
Our strange way to call
Well clap your hands
And stamp your feet
And I'll come running,
Running, running baby
Well clap your hands
And stamp your feet
And I'll come runnin',
Runnin' wait and see.
Huma la la la, Huma la la
Huma la la la la
