I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire

The Ink Spots
Language: English



‎[1941]
Parole di Eddie Seiler e Sol Marcus
Musica di Bennie Benjamin e Eddie Durham‎
Testo trovato su WWII ‎In American Music




Una canzone molto popolare nel 1941, proposta da tante big band bianche (quelle di Horace Heidt, ‎Vincent Lopez e Tommy Tucker, per esempio) così come da questo gruppo vocale nero che negli ‎anni 30 e 40, insieme ai Mills Brothers, contribuì a definire il doo-wop.‎





Suona davvero piuttosto “pacifista” e “disfattista”, ma di lì a poco l’attacco giapponese a Pearl ‎Harbor e allora parole come queste avrebbero dovuto aspettare qualche anno per essere ‎riproposte…‎
I don't want to set the world on fire,
I just want to start a flame in your heart

No other will do
I've lost all ambition for worldly acclaim
I just want to be the one you love;
and with your admission that you feel the same
I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of
believe me!

I don't want to set the world on fire,
I just want to start a flame in your heart.‎

In my heart I have but one desire,
and that one is you,
and with your admission that you feel the same
I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of
believe me!

I don't want to set the world on fire,
I just want to start a flame in your heart.‎
