Betcha By Golly Wow!

“betcha by golly wow!” ditulis pada 1970, oleh linda creed dan thom bell.
pertama kali dinyanyikan oleh the stylistics, 1971.
dinyanyikan kembali oleh banyak penyanyi.
tapi yang paling gue suka versi prince.
dia nyanyikan lagu ini di album emancipation, rilis 1996.

inget untuk memposting liriknya setelah tadi pagi, di rumah,
sambil dandan, hardrock fm putar lagu ini.
rupanya, pagi itu dua penyiarnya, pandji pragiwaksono dan steny agustaf, sedang tidak dibolehkan menyanyi.
kalau kedapatan menyanyi selama siaran, didenda.

dua produsernya pinter.
mereka pilih lagu-lagu dahsyat di playlist pagi itu yang bikin dua penyiar itu hampir gila.
satu di antaranya “betcha by golly wow!” ini.

gue di rumah yang ngga dikenai denda langsung menjerit tertahan begitu dengar intronya.
stop semua kegiatan.
ikut nyanyi.
mari….

There’s a spark of magic in your eyes
Candyland appears each time you smile
Never thought that fairy tales came true
But they come true, when I’m near you

You’re a genie in disguise
Full of wonder and surprise, and

Betcha by golly, wow
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for, forever
And ever will my love for you keep growing strong
Keep growing strong

If I could, I’d catch a falling star
To shine on you so I’ll know where you are
All the rainbows in your favorite shades
To show I love you, thinking of you

Write your name across the sky
Anything you ask, I’ll try

Cause betcha by golly, wow
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for, forever
And ever will my love for you, keep growing strong
Keep growing strong

Betcha by golly, wow
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for, forever
And ever will my love for you, keep growing strong
Keep growing strong
