Joel Grey - If you could see her (through my eyes)

YOU WOULDN'T WONDER AT ALL

Recordamos el 85 cumpleaños del actor estadounidense Joel Grey con esta genial secuencia del film "Cabaret" (1972), musical con canciones de John Kander y Fred Ebb que le hizo conocido en todo el mundo y por el que ganó el Oscar y el Globo de Oro al mejor actor de reparto. En él Grey interpreta (con marcado acento alemán) junto a un gorila el vals If you could see her (through my eyes), todo un canto a la tolerancia en materia amorosa.

If you could see her (through my eyes)  (lyrics)

I know what you're thinking:
You wondered why I chose her
Out of all the ladies in the world.
It's just a first impression,
What good's a first impression?
If you knew her like I do
It would change you're point of view.

If you could see her through my eyes
You wouldn't wonder at all.
If you could see her through my eyes
I guarantee you would fall (like I did).
When we're in public together
I hear society moan.
But if sie could see her through my eyes
Maybe sie'd leave us alone.

How can I speak of her virtues,
I don't know where to begin
She's clever, she's smart, she reads musics
She doesn't smoke or drink gin (like I do).
Yet when we're walking together
They sneer if I'm holding her hand.
But if sie could see her through my eyes
Maybe sie'd all understand.

Why don't sie leave us alone?

Meine Damen und Herren, Madames et Monsieurs
Ladies und Gentleman
I ask you, is it a crime to fall in love?
Can one ever choose where the heart leads us?
All we ask is eine bisschen verstandnis
A little understanding
Why can't the world leben und leben lassen?
'Live und let live....'
I understand your objection
I grant you the problem's not small
But if you could see her through my eyes
She wouldn't look Jewish at all.
