VI. Carried Away (Live) - Frederica von Stade (弗裏德里卡·馮·斯塔特)/David Garrison/London Symphony Orchestra (倫敦交響樂團)/Michael Tilson Thomas (邁可·提爾森·湯瑪斯)

Written by:Leonard Bernstein/Betty Comden/Adolph Green/Alison Ames

Modern man what is it

 

Just a collection of complexes

And neurotic impulses

That occasionally break through

 

You mean sometimes you blow your top like me

 

I do

 

I try hard to stay controlled

But I get carried away

Try to act aloof and cold

But I get carried away

Carried away carried away

You get carried just carried away

 

When I sit and listen to a symphony

 

Why can't I just say the music's grand

Why must I leap upon the stage hysterically

 

They're playing pizzicato

And everything goes blotto

I grab the maestro's stick and start in leading the band

Carried away carried away

I get carried just carried away

 

And when I go to see a moving picture show

 

And I'm watching actors in a scene

 

I start to think what's happening is really so

 

The girl I must protect her

The villain don't respect her

I leap to her defense and knock a hole right through the screen

Carried away carried away

He gets carried just carried away

 

I try hard to keep detached

But I get carried away

Try to act less booby hatched

But I get carried away

Carried away carried away

He gets carried just carried away

 

When shopping I'm a sucker for a bargain sale

 

If something is marked down upon a shelf

 

My sense of what is practical begins to fail

 

I buy one then another

Another then another

I buy the whole store out and I'm in business for myself

Carried away carried away

He gets carried just carried away

 

And when I go to see my friends off on a train

 

Golly how I hate to see them go

For then my love of travelling I can't restrain

 

The time has come for parting

The train's already starting

I hop a freight and in a flash I'm off to buffalo

 

We get carried just carried a way
