Jolene, rewritten (to Noreen)

17.11.2019

rozhovor dvou žen


Známou písničku od Doly Parton Jolene jsme všichni slyšeli alespoň v rádiu. Ti, co se pozorněji zaměřili na text, si možná všimli, jak moc je žena v písni zaměřená na krásu Jolene. Prosí ji, aby jí nebrala muže, ale většinu písně je uchvácená její krásou. Kaštanovými vlasy, smaragdově zelenýma očima a slonovinovou pletí.

Jak by na to Jolene odpověděla? Její odpověď je napsaná na stejnou melodii a řeší pár zásadních otázek.

Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I'm begging of you please don't take my man

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

Please don't take him just because you can


Your beauty is beyond compare

With flaming locks of auburn hair

With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green

Your smile is like a breath of spring

Your voice is soft like summer rain

And I cannot compete with you, Jolene


He talks about you in his sleep

There's nothing I can do to keep

From crying when he calls your name, Jolene

And I can easily understand

How you could easily take my man

But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene


Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I'm begging of you please don't take my man


Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

Please don't take him just because you can

You could have your choice of men

But I could never love again

He's the only one for me, Jolene

I had to have this talk with you

My happiness depends on you

And whatever you decide to do, Jolene


Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I'm begging of you please don't take my man

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

Please don't take him even though you can

Jolene, Jolene

Noreen

Noreen, Noreen, Noreen, Noreen

my Dear, please let's not fight about that man

Noreen, Noreen, Noreen, Noreen

Let me tell you something, if I can


You're smart and kind and oh so brave

your glamor is beyond compare

your soft laugh makes my hounded soul serene

I don't visit just for the tea

you seem so thrilled when you're with me

Why do you care for him so much, Noreen?


And please I need you to understand

That I do not care for any man

while I hold you close to my heart, Noreen

I dream about the things so sweet 

I wake up with joy from my sleep

With your name on my lips my dear, Noreen


Noreen, Noreen, Noreen, Noreen

My Dear, let's forget that tedious man.


Noreen, Noreen, Noreen, Noreen,

Let me tell you something if I can

You can be with your chosen man

And I would love you all the same

Just don't push me away, please, my Noreen

I swear we can be just friends too

I gave you a heart and a dreaded true

So now do what you deem to do, Noreen


Noreen, Noreen, Noreen, Noreen

Trust me I'll love you better than that man

Noreen, Noreen, Noreen, Noreen

Meeting you that was a divine plan

Noreen, Noreen
