WHEN SUNNY GETS BLUE - Johnny Mathis, Nancy Wilson & others





WHEN SUNNY GETS BLUE

When Sunny gets blue, her eyes get gray and cloudy, 
Then the rain begins to fall, pitter-patter, pitter-patter, 
Love is gone, so what can matter, 
No sweet lover man comes to call.

When Sunny gets blue, she breaths a sigh of sadness, 
Like the wind that stirs the trees, 
Wind that sets the leaves to swaying 
Like some violin is playing strange and haunting melodies. 

Bridge:

*People used to love to hear her laugh, see her smile, 
That's how she got her name. 
Since that sad affair, she lost her smile, changed her style, 
Somehow she's not the same.

But memories will fade, and pretty dreams will rise up 
Where her other dreams fell through, 
Hurry new love, hurry here, to kiss away each lonely tear, 
And hold her near when Sunny gets blue. 

(Instrumental interlude and pick up at Bridge*.)

Hurry new love, hurry here, to kiss away each lonely tear
And hold her near when Sunny gets blue.

Piano Lesson : When Sunny Gets Blue Doug McKenzie
(Lagu ini pernah dimainkan dengan tempo yang agak cepat dan diramu dengan apik sekali oleh dedengkot jazz Indonesia Jack Lesmana yang dinyanyikan oleh Julie Amie dalam album bertajuk "Jack Jazz Lesmana-Luka". Saya sangat terinspirasi musik jazz ketika menyanyikan lagu ini dalam berbagai kesempatan. Dalam album itu juga ditampilkan Titi DJ yang menyanyikan Prahara Cinta, Menanti (dibawah pohon kambodja), Andaikan dan Luka. Namun versi lain buat saya terlalu slow seperti yang dibawakan Nancy Wilson di atas.)
