where you go to (my lovely)

為了看 adrian brody natalie portman, 第一次看 wes anderson 的電影 Darjeeling Limited(台灣直譯「大吉嶺有限公司」已經引來批評,港譯「大吉利士有限公司」在台譯本的基礎加上方言特色,益發令人費解)。在part I hotel chevalier part II(「正文」?)部分,Peter sarstedt where do you go to (my lovely) 出現了數次。這首歌是1969年的大熱之作,由幾個簡單的 chord 組成,主要以悠閑的結他撥出輕快的三拍。邊聽邊狐疑歌詞中的眾多名詞(人名、地名、牌子等)指的是甚麼,所以弄了以下的「超連結版」。

PETER SARSTEDT        WHERE DO YOU GO TO MY LOVELY  

You talk like Marlene Dietrich
And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire
Your clothes are all made by Balmain
And there’s diamonds and pearls in your hair, yes there are

You live in a fancy apartment
Off the Boulevard Saint-Michel
Where you keep your Rolling Stones records
And a friend of Sacha Distel, yes you do

*But where do you go to my lovely
When you’re alone in your bed
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes I do

I’ve seen all your qualifications
You got from the Sorbonne
And the painting you stole from Picasso
Your loveliness goes on and on, yes it does

When you go on your summer vacation
You go to Juan-les-Pins
With your carefully designed topless swimsuit
You get an even suntan on your back and on your legs

And when the snow falls you’re found in Saint Moritz
With the others of the jet-set
And you sip your Napoleon brandy
But you never get your lips wet, no you don’t

Repeat *

Your name, it is heard in high places
You know the Aga Khan
He sent you a racehorse for Christmas
And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh, a-ha-ha-ha

They say that when you get married
It’ll be to a millionaire
But they don’t realize where you came from
And I wonder if they really care, or give a damn

Where do you go to my lovely
When you’re alone in your bed
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes I do

I remember the back streets of Naples
Two children begging in rags
Both touched with a burning ambition
To shake off their lowly-born tags, so they try

So look into my face Marie-Claire
And remember just who you are
Then go and forget me forever
But I know you still bear the scar, deep inside, yes you do

I know where you go to my lovely
When you’re alone in your bed
I know the thoughts that surround you
‘Cause I can look inside your head
