Tico-Tico no Fubá – ukulele

這幾天苦練的是早前在Youtube見到Taimane彈的Tico Tico no Fuba(如下)。

因為Taimane彈的應是8弦的Tenor,8弦倒沒太大關係,但Low-G和12琴格以上的音,我支西瓜Soprano彈唔到,所以在網上找了另一份由Joseph Todaro編寫的Soprano譜。



Oh tico-tico tick! Oh tico-tico tock! This tico-tico – he’s the cuckoo in my clock. And when he says: “Cuckoo!” he means it’s time to woo; It’s “tico-time” for all the lovers in the block.

I’ve got a heavy date – a tête-à-tête at eight, so speak, oh tico, tell me is it getting late? If I’m on time, “Cuckoo!” but if I’m late, “Woo-woo!” The one my heart has gone to may not want to wait!

For just a birdie, and a birdie who goes no-where, He knows of ev’ry Lovers’ Lane and how to go there; For in affairs of the heart, my Tico’s terribly smart, He tells me: “Gently, sentiment’ly at the start!”

Oh-oh, I hear my little tico-tico calling, Because the time is right and shades of night are falling. I love that not-so-cuckoo cuckoo in my clock: tico-tico tico-tico-tico tock!
