All Around the World La La La La

 

Jim Adams’  lyrical challenge this week is to write about a song with “la” in the lyrics.  While my first thoughts went to the Beatles, this was quickly thought of others as well.  So I thought about the “universal la”  so what better than a la la all around the world?

According to the “experts” on Wikipedia “Around the World (La La La La La)” was the first single by the German group A Touch of Class (ATC).  The song was a cover of the Russian song “Pesenka,” and uses the song’s melody with English lyrics. “La la la la la” is used in a call and response form. The song wass ATC’s most successful single, reaching the top 20 in several countries.

Lyrics:
The kisses of the sun
Were sweet I didn’t blink
I let it in my eyes
Like an exotic dream
The radio playing songs
That I have never heard
I don’t know what to say
Oh not another word
Just, la la la la la
It goes around the world
Just, la la la la la
It’s all around the world
Just, la la la la la
And everybody’s singing
La la la la la
And now the bells are ringing
La la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
La la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
Inside an empty room
My inspiration flows
Now wait to hear the tune
Around my head it goes
The magic melody
You want to sing with me
Just la la la la la
the music is the key
And now the night is gone
Still it goes on and on
So deep inside of me
I long to set it free
I don’t know what to do
Just can’t explain to you
I don’t know what to say
Oh not another word
Just, la la la la la
It goes around the world
Just, la la la la la
It’s all around the world
Just, la la la la la
And everybody’s singing
La la la la la
And now the bells are ringing
La la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
La la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
The kisses of the sun
Around, around, around…
La la la la la
It goes around the world
Just, la la la la la
It’s all around the world
Just, la la la la la
And everybody’s singing
La la la la la
And now the bells are ringing
La la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
La la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
Around, around, around…

    I just noticed that three of the songwriters are probably Russian or of Russian background. #onceaslavicistalwaysaslavicist

    That DOES take us Round the World
