Ginger Rogers - Let yourself go

AS YOU LISTEN TO THE BAND DO'NT YOU GET A BUBBLE?

Hoy se cumple el 105 aniversario del nacimiento de la actriz, bailarina y cantante Ginger Rogers. Además de ser en la pantalla la pareja de baile más frecuente de Fred Astaire (en diez películas), también cantó de forma aceptable antes, durante y después de formar el susodicho tándem. He aquí un ejemplo con este fragmento de "Sigamos la flota" (1936), su quinto film con Astaire, con canciones de Irving Berlin, donde interpretaba Let yourself go acompañada de un trío femenino que incluía a Betty Grable.

Let yourself go
(Irving Berlin)

As you listen to the band don't you get a bubble?
As you listen to them play don't you get a glow?
If you step out on the floor
You'll forget your trouble
If you go into your dance
You'll forget your woe
So:

Come
Get together
Let the dance floor feel your leather
Step as lightly as a feather
Let yourself go

Come
Hit the timber
Loosen up and start to limber
Can't you hear that hot marimba?
Let yourself go

Let yourself go
Relax
And let yourself go
Relax
You've got yourself tied up in a knot
The night is cold but the music's hot
So

Come
Cuddle closer
Don't you dare to answer "No, sir"
Butcher, banker, clerk and grocer
Let yourself go
