My Bonnie – en sang fra skoletiden

9. marts 2008

Hvad var det ellers vi sang dengang i skolen? På Vestre Skole (frem til 5. klasse) husker jeg kun de obligatoriske salmer. Men på Sædding Skole var det både danske, engelske og tyske sange. Jo, et af de klare hits (det var især pigerne, der var vilde med at synge) var den traditionelle, skotske folkesang My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean, som Tony Sheridan & The Beatles rockificerede i 1961. Jeg var ikke særlig vild med den sang dengang, heller ikke i Sheridans udgave, selv om idolerne backede ham.. Men den sidder stadigvæk fast i erindringens grå masse.

My Bonnie lies over the ocean
My Bonnie lies over the sea
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me

Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me

Last night as I lay on my pillow
Last night as I lay on my bed
Last night as I lay on my pillow
I dreamed that my Bonnie was dead

Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me

Oh blow ye the winds o’er the ocean
And blow ye the winds o’er the sea
Oh blow ye the winds o’er the ocean
And bring back my Bonnie to me

    Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me

; The winds have blown over the ocean
The winds have blown over the sea
The winds have blown over the ocean
And brought back my Bonnie to me

Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me

Tony Sheridan & Beatles My Bonnie (tysk version! – Mein Herz ist bei dir nur…)
