     好累啊~不知道说什么好~

    今天一直在听Victoria Jackson的Pack up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag,老早看Castles的时候偶然发现的插曲,有时候真的有这个想法,把自己的烦恼找个大旅行箱,塞满满之后找个垃圾桶很潇洒的丢掉~

    今天有人说我太执着,那就执着呗~我还会执着下去,没打算改~有信念并且坚守的人总比连自己喜欢什么都不知道的人活得开心~

    恩恩,不烦不烦,介绍歌曲!

        "Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit-Bag, and Smile, Smile, Smile"是歌曲的全名,这是第一次世界大战的进行曲,发表于1915年的伦敦。词作者是George Henry Powell(使用笔名" George Asaf "发表),曲作者是他的兄弟Felix Powell。在英国国家剧院的一出戏里讲述了音乐明星们如何拯救这首被拒绝的歌曲最终使之成为一首战争进行曲。尽管战争是恐怖的,但歌曲鼓舞了英军将士们的士气,歌曲因此广为流传。这首歌是英国音乐厅选出的大量鼓舞士兵歌曲中的一首,为军队招募士兵,起到了捍卫和鼓舞英军奋勇战斗的作用。

    最早的版本是1916年Murray Johnson的版本,歌词比现在Victoria的这一版要长很多,非常有时代特色~这个版本后来被Reinald Werrenrath翻唱过,进行曲的意味感觉更浓~

歌词:

First Verse
Private Perks is a funny little codger
With a smile a funny smile.
Five feet none, he's and artful little dodger
With a smile a funny smile.
Flush or broke he'll have his little joke,
He can't be suppress'd.
All the other fellows have to grin
When he gets this off his chest, Hi!

Chorus

(sung twice after each verse)
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile,
While you've a lucifer to light your fag,
Smile, boys, that's the style.
What's the use of worrying?
It never was worth while, so
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile.

Second Verse
Private Perks went a-marching into Flanders
With his smile his funny smile.
He was lov'd by the privates and commanders
For his smile his funny smile.
When a throng of Bosches came along
With a mighty swing,
Perks yell'd out, "This little bunch is mine!
Keep your heads down, boys and sing, Hi!

Third Verse
Private Perks he came back from Bosche-shooting
With his smile his funny smile.
Round his home he then set about recruiting
With his smile his funny smile.
He told all his pals, the short, the tall,
What a time he'd had;
And as each enlisted like a man
Private Perks said 'Now my lad,' Hi!

    后来,美国著名的滑稽乐团团主Spike Johns删除了一战中的三个段落,只选取了其中chorus的部分演唱,配器使用的都很轻快,听起来节奏感很强,Victoria翻唱的就是这个版本~

    最后这个就是Victoria Johnson的版本啦~

歌词:

Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag

And smile, smile, smile.

Don't let your joy and laughter hear the snag

Smile boys, that's the style

What's the use of worrying

It never was worth while

So, pack up your troubles in your old kit bag

And smile, smile, smile.

(Musical Interlude)

Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag

And smile, smile, smile.

Just pucker up and whistle (Whistle)

(Whistling)

What's the use of worrying

It never was worth while

So, pack up your troubles in your old kit bag

And smile, smile, smile.

What's the use of worrying?
It never was worth while, so
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile.
