アレキサンダー・ビートル

「アレキサンダー・ビートル」という曲です

A. A. Milne の詩集「 Now We Are Six 」の中の Forgiven に曲をつけてみました。「アレキサンダー」というのは「くまのプーさん」に出てくる小さなかぶと虫の名前です。

 

 

詩:A.A. Milne
曲:Tsutomu Yonejima

Forgiven

I found a little beetle, so that Beetle was his name

And I called him Alexander and he answered just the same

I put him in a match-box, and I kept him all the day

And Nanny let my beetle out

Yes, Nanny let my beetle out

She went and let my beetle out

And Beetle ran away

 

She said she didn’t mean it, and I never said she did

She said she wanted matches and she just took off the lid

She said that she was sorry, but it’s difficult to catch

An excited sort of beetle you’ve mistaken for a match

 

She said that she was sorry, and I really mustn’t mind

As there’s lots and lots of beetles which she’s certain we could find

If we looked about the garden for the holes where beetles hid

And we’d get another match-box and write BEETLE on the lid

 

We went to all the places which a beetle might be near

And we made the sort of noises which a beetle likes to hear

And I saw a kind of something, and I gave a sort of shout:

“A beetle-house and Alexander Beetle coming out!”

 

It was Alexander Beetle I’m as certain as can be

And he had a sort of look as if he thought it must be ME

And he had a sort of look as if he thought he ought to say

“I’m very, very sorry that I tried to run away.”

 

And Nanny’s very sory too for you-know-what-she-did

And she’s writing ALEXANDER very blacky on the lid

So Nan and Me are friends, because it’s difficult to catch

And excited Alexander you’ve mistaken for a match
