Let’s go to California with our local Mamas and Papas ;-)

05 Jun

Not to San Francisco like Anna in team Germany but to L.A πŸ˜‰ Dreaming, of course πŸ˜‰

Team France and its choir πŸ˜‰

All the leaves are brown
(All the leaves are brown)
And the sky is grey.
(And the sky is grey).
I’ve been for a walk
(I’ve been for a walk)
On a winter’s day.
(On a winter’s day).

I’d be safe and warm
(I’d be safe and warm)
if I was in L.A.
(If I was in L.A.)
California dreamin’
(California dreamin’) on such a winter’s day.

Stopped in to a church I passed along the way.
Well I got down on my knees
(got down on my knees)
And I pretend to pray.
(I pretend to pray).
You know the preacher likes the cold.
(preacher likes the cold).
He knows I’m gonna stay.
(knows I’m gonna stay).
California dreamin’
(California dreamin’) on such a winter’s day.

(Bridge)

All the leaves are brown
(All the leaves are brown)
And the sky is grey.
(And the sky is grey).
I’ve been for a walk
(I’ve been for a walk)
On a winter’s day.
(On a winter’s day).

If I didn’t tell her
(If I didn’t tell her)
I could leave today.
(I could leave today).
California dreamin’ (California dreamin’)on such a winter’s day,
California dreamin’ on such a winter’s day,
California dreamin’ on such a winter’s day.

    Fantastic! πŸ™‚ Well, it looks as if you were sending the English teachers on a trip down memory lane πŸ™‚ but, unlike Mrs Munar, this song doesn’t remind me of my teenage years πŸ˜‰ …and I was just once singing it … crossing Golden Gate Bridge πŸ˜€ As I don’t sing as well as you do I had to make sure there weren’t any people near me πŸ˜‰

    Great song…Great singing. I was in California just three weeks ago. I did not hear any young people singing.as good as your group. Way to go California dreamers! Perhaps you would like to come to our dance studio and sing. Hugs…From one of your English teacher’s biggest fans-ML in SD

    Do you know that this song is also known as “Anneliese Braun” in Germany? πŸ˜€ just one example of ‘misheard lyrics’ πŸ˜‰

     
  34. Marie-France

    June 8, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    @ Georg: Are you talking about malapropism? What does the song in German say?

     
  35. MrsU

    June 8, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    That is what Georg was talking about. πŸ˜€ Instead of “all the leaves are brown” some people understand “Anneliese Braun” πŸ˜‰ By the way, her best friend is “Agathe Bauer” (I’ve got the power) πŸ˜€
    Once you pay attention to those ‘mondegreens’ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mondegreen , you’ll have problems understanding the correct lyrics πŸ˜‰ So be careful, when checking out respective ‘misheard lyrics’ videos on youtube πŸ˜‰
