Paroles

Ooh, Do it again
I may say no, no, no, no,
But do it again
My lips just ache
to have you take
the kiss that's waiting for you
You know if you do
You won't regret it
Come and get it !

Oh, no one is near
I may cry, oh, oh, oh
But no one will hear
Mamma may scold me
'cause she's told me
it is naughty... but then,
Oh do it again, please, do it again !

[chorus] Do, Do, Do, Do, Do...
Ohhh
Do it again
I may say no
No, No, No, but do it again
My lips just ache
to have you take the kiss
That's waiting for you
You know if you do
You won't regret it
Come and get it !
Ohhhhhhhhhh...
No one is near
I may say no, no, no, no...
But no one
will hear
Mamma may scold me
'cause she's told me
It is naughty... but then,
Oh do it again, please,
Do it again !
 



Traduction

 Fais-le encore

 Ooh, fais-le encore
Je peux dire non, non, non, non,
mais fais-le encore.
Mes lèvres brûlent
dans l'attente que tu prennes
le baiser qui t'attend.
Tu sais que si tu le fais,
tu ne le regrettera pas.
Viens et prends-le !

Oh, personne n'est là
Je peux pleurer, oh oh,
Mais personne n'entendra.
Maman peut me gronder
parce qu'elle m'a dit
que c'était vilain... mais alors,
oh le faire encore, s'il te plaît, fais-le encore !

Bonus Infos

  • Genèse - La chanson a été écrite au début des années 1920s, George Gershwin en est le compositeur pour la musique et Buddy DeSylva en est le parolier; Gershwin racontera en 1934 les circonstances de l'écriture de la chanson: "J'étais dans le bureau de Max Dreyfus, mon éditeur, un jour où Buddy DeSylva était là. DeSylva m'a dit en plaisantant: "George, écrivons un tube !" Je l'ai égalé en disant: "OK !" Je me suis assis au piano, et j'ai commencé à jouer un thème que je composais sur-le-champ... Buddy a écouté pendant quelques minutes puis a commencé à chanter ce titre - "Oh, Do It Again !", auquel il venait s'adapter à mon thème."
    Genesis - The song was written in the early 1920s, George Gershwin is the composer for the music and Buddy DeSylva is the lyricist; Gershwin will recount in 1934 the circumstances of the writing of the song: "I was in the office of Max Dreyfus, my publisher, one day when Buddy DeSylva walked in. DeSylva said jokingly to me, "George, let's write a hit!" I matched him by saying, "O.K.!" I sat down at the piano, and began playing a theme which I was composing on the spot... Buddy listened for a few minutes and then began chanting this title—"Oh, Do It Again!," which he had just fitted to my theme."

  • L' Avant-Marilyn - Gershwin joue la chanson, décrite comme "innocemment sensuelle", à des fêtes. En entendant la chanson, Irène Bordoni (une actrice et chanteuse américaine d'origine Corse) insiste pour l'interprèter dans son spectacle. "Do It Again" est entendue ainsi pour la première fois dans la pièce de Broadway The French Doll, dont la première a lieu le 20 février 1922 au Lyceum Theatre et a duré pendant près de 120 représentations. La chanson gagne ainsi les éloges des critiques et un grand succès.
    La même année en 1922, la chanteuse et actrice Alice Delysia (française, elle fit carrière sur les scènes londonniennes) interprète la chanson -rebaptisée "Please Do It Again"- dans la revue londonienne Mayfair and Montmartre qui est également bien accueilli. Delysia enregistrera la chanson en 1933.
    Mais le premier enregistrement sur vinyle est en 1922 par l'orchestre de Paul Whiteman et rencontre du succès. 

    The Before-Marilyn - Gershwin plays the song, described as "innocently sensual", at parties. Upon hearing the song, Irène Bordoni (an American actress and singer of Corsican origin) insists to perform it in her show. "Do It Again" first appears in the Broadway play The French Doll, which premiered on February 20, 1922 at the Lyceum Theatre and ran for a total of 120 performances. The song thus wins critical acclaim and a great success.
    The same year in 1922, singer and actress Alice Delysia (French, she made a career on the London stages) performs the song - retitled "Please Do It Again" - in the London review Mayfair and Montmartre which was also well received. Delysia will record the song in 1933.
    But the first recording on vinyl is in 1922 by the Paul Whiteman Orchestra and meets with success.

- La version originale de la chanson contient un premier couplet
- The original version of the song contains a first verse

Tell me, Tell me, what did you to me ?
I just got a thrill that was new to me,
When your two lips were pressed to mine.
When you held me, I wasn't snuggling
You should know I really was struggling
I've only met you and I shouldn't let you, but
Oh, do it again....

  • La version Marilyn - Enregistrée par Marilyn Monroe en 1953*, cette chanson fut censurée à l'époque à cause du texte jugé provoquant (en français: "Fais-le encore"). 
    -* date d'enregistrement indicative - référencée dans l'album "Never Before and Never Again"
    Marilyn l'a pourtant chanté en public pour la première fois l'année précédente, le 04 avril 1952 au Camp Pendleton, devant des milliers de Marines, créant presque une émeute !
    En février 1954, durant son voyage de noces en Corée où elle se produisit sur scène devant les GI's, "Do it again" faisait parti du répertoire des titres chantés par Marilyn.
    The Marilyn version - Recorded by Marilyn Monroe in 1953 *, this song was censored at the time because of the text considered provoking.
    -
    * indicative recording date - referenced in the album "Never Before and Never Again"
    Marilyn however sings it in public for the first time the previous year, on April 04, 1952 at Camp Pendleton, in front of thousands of Marines, almost creating a riot !
    In February 1954, during her honeymoon in Korea where she performed on stage in front of the GI's, "Do it again" was part of the repertoire of songs sung by Marilyn.

And although it was wrong
I never was strong
So as long as you've begun it
And you know you shouldn't have done it

Oh, do it again
I may cry no, no, no, no, no,
but do it again
My lips just ache to have you take
The kiss that's waiting for you
You know if you do,
you won't regret it
Come and get it

Oh, no one is near
I may cry oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
but no one can hear
Mama may scold me 'cause she told me
It was naughty but then,
Please Do It Again, Yes Do It Again and Again...

Turn Out The Light And Hold Me Close
Close In Your Arms All Through The Night
I know tomorrow morning
You will say goodbye and amen
But until then, please do it again

Lot n°148: costume de Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
