【歐米設計_歐米賞】_ Papa’words(父親的話語)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Px8_z1uvc8Q

Paul Anka 的經典名曲。

這是一首以兒子為主角,憶述父親陪伴成長及對所留下的話語,於自己成家並面對年老時,開始體悟到的心路之歌。

曲中描述的父親,青壯時為家庭和自己默默付出許多點滴,而年邁時希望兒子專心照顧自己家庭,不必顧慮自己….。當兒子步入和當年父親相同年齡時,開始體悟其留下的每一話語,讓他深切感受父愛的偉大。而自己,也將會仿如父親般,不成為下一代的負擔,獨自渡過晚年餘生。

後記
Paul Anka 曾於一塲演唱會中,以修改過的曲詞演唱,故事記述性質更為濃厚,於父親面對和兒子終需分離不捨的現實之父愛表露,也有更深刻的描繪,讓我們看到一位真正的父親.
這是一塲充滿情感與專業表演的詞曲演譯會。

父親每天勤奮工作,也都會把事情安排好好

除關心我們吃的, 還有是否有把鞋子穿上

每晚抱我們上床哄我們入眠,親吻後並給予祈禱

在他陪伴下很快便成長成年, 而他也續漸老邁

母親身體不好, 當她去世時, 父親痛哭…."為什麼不是把他帶走"

母親走後, 父親只睡椅子, 不曾再到樓上…

有一天, 父親跟我說:"兒子, 你已年成, 去過你自己的生活方式 , 我能獨自一人照顧自己"

現在每當親吻自己兒子時, 總憶起父親的話語:"你的孩子和你生活,然後成長,最後離開你"

我記得父親說過的每句話,也感受於每天的生活中…

Everyday my papa would work to help to make ends meet

To see that we would eat

Keep those shoes upon my feet

Every night my papa would take me and tuck me in my bed

Kiss me on my head

After all the prayers were said

Growing up with him was easy

Time just flew on by

The yeas began to fly

He aged and so did I

I could tell that mama wasn’t well

Papa knew and deep down so did she so did she

When she died Papa broke down and cried

All he said was, “God,why not take meeee!”

Everynight he sat there sleeping in his walking chair

He never went upstairs

All because she wasn’t there

Then one day my papa said,

“Son,now you have the way you’re grown”

“Make it on your own”

“I’ll be O.K. alone”

Every time I kiss my children

Papa’s words ring true

“Your Children live through you”

“Then, grow and leave you, too”

I remember every word

My papa used to say

I live them everyday

He taught me what I feel

Every night my papa would take me

And tuck me in my bed

Kiss my on my head

After all my prayers were said
