Only wanna be with you

Hootie and the Blowfish, 1995

You and me
We come from different worlds
You like to laugh at me
When I look at other girls
Sometimes you're crazy
And you wonder why
I'm such a baby
Cause the Dolphins make me cry
[Chorus:]
Well there's nothing I can do
I only wanna be with you
You can call me your fool
Only wanna be with you
Put on a little Dylan
sitting on a fence
I say that line is great
You ask me what I meant by
"Said I shot a man named Gray
Took his wife to Italy
She inherited a million bucks
And when she died it came to me
I can't help it if I'm lucky"
Only wanna be with you
Ain't Bobby so cool
Only wanna be with you
[Solo]
Yeah I'm tangled up in blue
Only wanna be with you
You can call me your fool
Only wanna be with you
Sometimes I wonder
If it will ever end
You get so mad at me
When I go out with my friends
Sometimes you're crazy
And you wonder why
I'm such a baby yeah
The Dolphins make me cry
Well there's nothing I can do
Only wanna be with you
You can call me your fool
Only wanna be with you
Yeah I'm tangled up in blue
Only wanna be with you

Comment entendre cette chanson et ne pas avoir envie de danser, chanter, sourire ? D’une simplicité déroutante, ces quatre accords de base ne peuvent que mettre qui que ce soit qui les écoutent de bonne humeur.

Les paroles, parfois récriées parce que certains les accusent d’avoir copié la chanson « Idiot Wind » de Bob Dylan, sont simples et amusantes. Il me suffit d’entendre « I’m such a baby ‘cause the dolphins make me cry » et je souris jusqu’aux oreilles …

« Only wanna be with you», c’est Nora, unique et irremplaçable, plus de 20 ans ensemble au moment ou j’écris cela, et bien plus à venir j’espère …
