ただの洋楽好きのオジサン ぶろっこり が、気ままにおすすめの洋楽をお届けしている 🎶今週の洋楽🎶 。今回は、文化祭や体育祭で流れる定番の洋楽、生徒さんに大人気のアヴリル・ラヴィーン Avril Lavigne の スケーター・ボーイ Sk8er Boi と ガールフレンド Girlfriend , コンプリケイテッド Complicated をピックアップ。いままでとりあげてなくてごめんなさい。ファンのみなさん遅くなりましたー。

闘病から復活の最新アルバム「ヘッド・アバーヴ・ウォーター」。2020ジャパン・ツアーも決定。おめでとう。

アヴリル・ラヴィーン Avril Lavigne は、カナダ出身のロック歌手。言うまでも無いけど。

2002年リリースのデビューアルバム『Let Go』は全世界で約2000万枚を売り上げ、アメリカでは6回プラチナディスクに選ばれた。2枚目のアルバム『Under My Skin』、3枚目の『The Best Damn Thing』は両方ともBillboard 200で1位にランク。シングルでは「Complicated」「Sk8er Boi」「I’m With You」「My Happy Ending」「Girlfriend」など11曲がトップ10入りを果たしている。現在、彼女のアルバムは全世界で4000万枚以上のセールスを達成。       Wiki アヴリル・ラヴィーン より

彼女は、ひとつひとつの単語をしっかり、きれいに、はっきりと発音しているので、とても聞きやすいと思います。英語学習にもいいんじゃないでしょうか。

「Sk8er Boi」は、単語自体はとても簡単なものばかりですが、アップテンポな曲なのでリスニングの練習になるかも。
「Sk8ter」の「8」は発音が「エイト(ate)」なので「sk8er」は「skater」のことみたいです。NetスラングとかJK言葉みたいなものでしょうね。

Sk8er Boi Avril Lavigne 2002

He was a boy
She was a girl
Can I make it any more obvious?
He was a punk
She did ballet
What more can I say?
He wanted her
She’d never tell
Secretly she wanted him as well
But all of her friends
Stuck up their nose
They had a problem with his baggy clothes
He was a skater boy
She said, “see you later, boy”
He wasn’t good enough for her
She had a pretty face
But her head was up in space
She needed to come back down to earth
Five years from now
She sits at home
Feeding the baby, she’s all alone
She turns on TV
Guess who she sees
Skater boy rockin’ up MTV
She calls up her friends
They already know
And they’ve all got tickets to see his show
She tags along
Stands in the crowd
Looks up at the man that she turned down
He was a skater boy
She said, “see you later, boy”
He wasn’t good enough for her
Now he’s a super star
Slammin’ on his guitar
Does your pretty face see what he’s worth?
He was a skater boy
She said, “see you later, boy”
He wasn’t good enough for her
Now he’s a super star
Slammin’ on his guitar
Does your pretty face see what he’s worth?
Sorry, girl, but you missed out
Well, tough, luck that boy’s mine now
We are more than just good friends
This is how the story ends
Too bad that you couldn’t see
See the man that boy could be
There is more that meets the eye
I see the soul that is inside
He’s just a boy
And I’m just a girl
Can I make it any more obvious?
We are in love
Haven’t you heard
How we rock each others world
I’m with the skater boy
I said, “see you later, boy”
I’ll be back stage after the show
I’ll be at the studio
Singing the song we wrote
About a girl you used to know
I’m with the skater boy
I said, “see you later, boy”
I’ll be back stage after the show
I’ll be at the studio
Singing the song we wrote
About a girl you used to know

Hey, hey
You, you

You’re so fine
I want you mine
You’re so delicious
I think about you all the time
You’re so addictive
Don’t you know what I can do
To make you feel all right?
Don’t pretend
I think you know
I’m damn precious
And, hell yeah
I’m the motherfuckin’ princess
I can tell you like me too
And you know I’m right
She’s like so, whatever
You could do so much better
I think we should get together now
(And that’s what everyone’s talkin’ about)

I see the way you look at me
And even when you look away
I know you think of me
I know you talk about me all the time
Again and again
So come over here
And tell me what I wanna hear
Better yet, make your girlfriend disappear
I don’t wanna hear you say her name ever again (and again and again)
Cause she’s like so, whatever
You could do so much better
I think we should get together now

In a second you’ll be wrapped around my finger
Cause I can, ‘cause I can do it better
There’s no other, so when’s it gonna sink in?
She’s so stupid
What the hell were you thinkin’?
In a second you’ll be wrapped around my finger
Cause I can, ‘cause I can do it better
There’s no other, so when’s it gonna sink in?
She’s so stupid
What the hell were you thinkin’?
Hey, hey
You, you
I don’t like your girlfriend
No way, no way
I think you need a new one
Hey, hey
You, you

Avril Lavigne – Complicated (Official Music Video) 2002

 

Complicated Avril Lavigne 2002

Uh-huh, life’s like this
Uh-huh, uh-huh, that’s the way it is
‘Cause life’s like this
Uh-huh, uh-huh, that’s the way it is
Chill out, what you yelling for?
Lay back, it’s all been done before
And if, you could only let it be, you will see
I like, you the way you are
When we’re, driving in your car
And you’re, talking to me one on one but you become
Somebody else
‘Round everyone else
You’re watching your back
Like you can’t relax
You’re trying to be cool
You look like a fool to me
Tell me
Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you’re acting like you’re somebody else gets me frustrated
Life’s like this, you
And you fall, and you crawl, and you break
And you take, what you get, and you turn it into
Honesty and promise me I’m never gonna find you fake it
No, no, no
You come over unannounced
Dressed up like you’re something else
Where you are and where it’s at you see
You’re making me
Laugh out, when you strike your pose
Take off all your preppy clothes
You know, you’re not fooling anyone
When you become
Somebody else
‘Round everyone else
You’re watching your back
Like you can’t relax
You’re trying to be cool
You look like a fool to me
Tell me
Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you’re acting like you’re somebody else gets me frustrated
Life’s like this you
And you fall, and you crawl, and you break
And you take, what you get, and you turn it into
Honesty and promise me I’m never gonna find you fake it
No, no, no
No, no, no, no
No, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no
Chill out, what you yelling for?
Lay back, it’s all been done before
And if you could only let it be
You will see
Somebody else
‘Round everyone else
You’re watching your back
Like you can’t relax
You’re trying to be cool
You look like a fool to me
Tell me
Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you’re acting like you’re somebody else gets me frustrated
Life’s like this you
And you fall, and you crawl, and you break
And you take, what you get, and you turn it into
Honesty and promise me I’m never gonna find you fake it
No, no
Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you’re acting like you’re somebody else gets me frustrated
Life’s like this you
And you fall, and you crawl, and you break
And you take, what you get, and you turn it into
Honesty and promise me I’m never gonna find you fake it
No, no, no
