about

I love the slightly dissonant, bell-like chiming of prepared piano and thought it would be fun to use it to give this sweet old song a little edge. I also decided to write some new lyrics for the song in German. I actually found that German lyrics already existed, but I didn't like them, so I wrote my own.

This track features Daniel Janke, who co-produced this album with me.

lyrics

Picture me upon your knee
With tea for two and two for tea
Just me for you and you for me alone

Nobody near us to see us or to hear us
No friends or relations on weekend vacations
We won't have it known
That we own a telephone, dear

Day will break and you'll awake
And I will bake a sugar cake
For you to take for everyone to see

And we will raise a family
A boy for you and a girl for me
Can't you see how happy we would be?


German lyrics by Fawn Fritzen:

Komm hier her, setz dich zu mir
Mein Herz fliesst von diesem Klavier
Ein Lied für dich
Von mir, für dich allein.

Es gibt niemand in der Gegend
Brauchen nirgends hin zu gehen
Nur wir allein, zusammen
Mit Herzen ganz in Flammen
Wir erwarten keinen Gast,
an unserem Lieblingsplatz, mein Schatz - nein.

Ich mit dir und du mit mir
So warm und selig kuscheln wir
Nur du für mich und ich für dich - allein

Und wenn du willst, du Liebchen mein
Dann haben wir ein Kindelein
Siehst du ja, wir könnten glücklich sein!
