I get a Kick out of You
Music by Cole Porter
Lyrics by Cole Porter
1934

My sto-ry is much too sad to be told /
but prac-tic-ally eve-ry-thing /
leaves me to-tal-ly cold /
The on-ly ex-cep-tion I know is the case /
when I’m out on a quiet spree /
figh-ting vain-ly the old en-nui /
and I sud-den-ly turn and see /
your fa-bu-lous face /

I get no kick from Cham-pagne /
Mere al-co-hol does-n’t thrill me at all /
so tell me why should it be true /
that i get a kick out of you /

Some get a kick from co-caine /
I’m sure that if I took ev-en one sniff /
that would bore me ter-ri-fic-ly too /
yet I get a kick out of you /

I get a kick eve-ry time I see you /
stan-ding there be-fore me /
I get a kick though it’s clear to me /
you ob-vi-ous-ly don’t a-dore me /

I get no kick in a plane /
Fly-ing too high with some gal in the sky /
is my i-dea of no-thing to do /
Yet I get a kick / out of you!

妳帶給我欣喜

中文翻譯 : 李明龍 Lee Ming-lung

我的身世甚為悲戚難道
但實際上每件事
都令我徹底倦怠
唯一我所知的例外是那回
我在外獨自醺酩
無法從倦怠自拔時
無意中轉身看見妳
天仙的面龐

我並不喜歡香檳
酒飲完全無法讓我興奮
那請告訴我為什麼
妳能夠帶給我欣喜

有人沉迷於柯鹼
我知道縱使是只吸一口
也會令我厭膩至極的
但 妳給我帶來欣喜

我欣喜油生 — 只要見到妳
站在我的面前
我很欣喜 — 雖然我明知
妳很顯然地並不愛我

我無意於打高空
和女孩逍魂虛無飄渺中
對於我只是消磨時光
但妳帶給我 — 那欣喜
