Artist

Angus & Julia Stone è un duo australiano proveniente da Newport, sulle spiagge a nord di Sydney. Si sono formati nel 2005, i loro genitori erano entrambi musicisti e suonavano musica folk prima ancora che Angus e Julia nascessero.

Angus e Julia cominciarono a collaborare, con i loro rispettivi stili musicali, all'inizio del 2006. Prima di questo, si esibivano come artisti solisti, soprattutto nelle serate "open mic", ovvero degli eventi dove musicisti e cantanti sconosciuti possono iscriversi per cantare e suonare dal vivo.

Suonarono per la prima volta insieme al Coogee Bay Hotel a Sydney, nel 2005, con Julia che fece da supporto ad Angus. Sia Angus che Julia hanno un particolare stile vocale, molto apprezzato dalla critica internazionale.

Lyrics

She said, "Hello, mister, pleased to meet ya"
I wanna hold her, I wanna kiss her
She smelled of daisies, she smelled of daisies
She'd drive me crazy, she'd drive me crazy

Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Hey, hey
Hey, hey

Be my lover, my lady river
Can I take ya, take ya higher?

Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey

Gonna hold ya, gonna kiss ya in my arms
Gonna take ya away from harm
Gonna hold ya, gonna kiss ya in my arms
Gonna take ya away from harm

Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey

Testo

Ha detto: "Ciao, signore, felice di conoscerti"
Voglio abbracciarla, voglio baciarla
Odorava di margherite, odorava di margherite
Lei mi farebbe impazzire, mi farebbe impazzire

La porterò a fare un giro su un grande jet
La porterò a fare un giro su un grande jet
Ehi, ehi
Ehi, ehi

Sii il mio amante, mia signora fiume
Posso portarti, portarti più in alto?

La porterò a fare un giro su un grande jet
La porterò a fare un giro su un grande jet
La porterò a fare un giro su un grande jet
La porterò a fare un giro su un grande jet
Ehi, ehi
Ehi, ehi
Ehi, ehi
Ehi, ehi

Ti stringerò, ti bacerò tra le mie braccia
Ti porterò via dal male
Ti stringerò, ti bacerò tra le mie braccia
Ti porterò via dal male

La porterò a fare un giro su un grande jet
La porterò a fare un giro su un grande jet
La porterò a fare un giro su un grande jet
La porterò a fare un giro su un grande jet
Ehi, ehi
Ehi, ehi
Ehi, ehi
Ehi, ehi
Ehi, ehi
