    歌名 : The Laughing Policeman

    作詞:Charles Penrose  

    作曲:Charles Penrose

    Charles Penrose (11 November 1873 – 17 November 1952) was a music hall and theatre performer,

    and later radio comedian, who is best known for his unusual comic song "The Laughing Policeman".

    台灣歌手 洪鐘 親自改編英文曲《The Laughing Policeman》成為《奇妙的約會》一曲,一舉打開香港樂壇的知名度。他在這首歌裡展現出詼諧有趣、但難度艱澀的「笑嗓」絕活,立即吸引了多數樂迷的目光,旋即與香港百代唱片公司簽約,出版第一張專輯《美麗的回憶》,專輯中一曲《心上人》更成為流行金曲。據說..洪鐘為了唱這首歌曲,還特別去練過,因此與Charles Penrose放肆笑聲的版本最大不同點是他的宏亮笑聲相當特別。

    奇妙的約會(天邊一朵雲插曲)

    作詞:洪鐘 作曲:Charles Penrose

    我清早起床睡意濃 睡意尚迷濛

    我忽然想起今日是 假日好時光

    打電話約了密斯陳 在公園碰頭

    誰知我身上穿汗衫 左鞋右腳套 哈

    我匆匆趕到公園口 見她已來到

    你看她身材多窈窕 臉兒比花嬌

    我有心表示對她好 上前就擁抱

    她轉身賞我一耳光 原來認錯了 哈

    我等到紅日當頭照 她姍姍來到

    我氣在心頭向她問 為何要遲到

    又看她衣裙穿顛倒 拖鞋沒換掉

    她說為了約會心急躁 跟我一樣妙 哈

    我和她甜甜又蜜蜜 同渡好春宵

    又同遊共舞一整天 咖啡廳裡泡

    到臨別時候那一招 情形更可笑

    她不姓陳來是姓蕭 我也不姓趙 哈

    The Laughing Policeman

    聽聽這首歌曲的作詞作曲兼主唱的Charles Penrose 版本,感覺很似30年代的歌曲。

    The Laughing Policeman

    作詞:Charles Penrose  作曲:Charles Penrose

    I know a fat old policeman

    He’s always on our street.

    A fat and jolly red-faced man

    He really is a treat.

    He’s too kind for a policeman

    He’s never known to frown.

    And everybody says

    He is the happiest man in town!.

    He laughs upon point duty

    He laughs upon his beat.

    He laughs at everybody

    When he’s walking in the street.

    He never can stop laughing

    He says he’s never tried.

    But once he did arrest a man

    And laughed until he cried!

    Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

    Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

    His jolly face is wrinkled

    And then he shut his eyes.

    He opened his great big mouth

    It was a wonderous size!

    He said “I must arrest you!”

    He didn’t know what for.

    And then he started laughing

    Until he cracked his fat old jaw.

    Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

    Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

    So if you chance to meet him

    While walking ’round the town.

    Shake him by his fat old hand

    And give him half a crown.

    His eyes will beam and sparkle

    He’ll gurgle with delight.

    And then you’ll start him laughing

    With all his blessed might!

    細查之下,大笑之歌原來還有比Charles Penrose的The Laughing Policeman更早的版本,那就是George W. Johnson的The Laughing Song,灌錄於約1901年,而我們竟然還可透過Youtube收聽此版本!
