Roger's song

Okay everyone I didn't really know where to post this so I thought making a single thread for it. Just listening to some music and listening sometimes to the lyrics and :eek: there came a song which immediately made me think about Roger (well I admit that these days I think about him too much :p )!

You know, seems like it had been written for him one day. The song I am talking about is from Tina Turner and I am sure a lot of people here do know it! Here are the lyrics and the sentences applying well to Roger are in evidence :)

SIMPLY THE BEST

I call you when I need you, my heart's on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wired
When you come to me
Give me everything I need
Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams
Speak the language of love like you know what it means
ohh, it can't be wrong
Take my heart and make it stronger baby

You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead

In your heart I see the stars of every night and every day
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long as I'm here in your arms
I could be in no better place

You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead

Each time you leave me I start losing control
You're walking away with my heart and my soul
I can feel you even when I'm alone
Oh baby, don't let go

You're the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead

Oh, You're the best...

What do you think about it? Isn't it Roger's Hymn ;) ?

When Roger came to Gstaad after his 1st Wimby win - they played that song when he stepped on the court.. the crowd gave him standing ovations...:worship:

I have to think a bit about the song they played last year... will tell you later...!!

they played this song when Roger walked into the court in Gstaad 2 years ago, i was standing there on the bleachers with Doris and i was singing along to the refrain. :rocker:
the crowd were on their feet and you could feel the euphoria. i was on a natural high.

then Juliette made her entrance. Moo.

good thread Nathy. i'll add some songs later on which i think is appropriate for Roger.

finally I remember the song of last years Gstaad
it also is from Robbie

Let me entertain you -> no comment....:worship:

then Robbie has many more which couldn't suit better to our dear Roger

here we go:

Let love be your Energy -> his family and Mirka help him very much
Eternity -> his game is better than everyone before...!!!!

I made a parody of this song someplace, but this song pretty much says it all about Roger:

Every Little Thing (He Does Is Magic) - by the Police

Thanks everyone :)

@Colosseo: thank you for the mp3 of the song
@ste: yeah I agree with these songs :) Maybe Robbie is a Roger Fan :lol:
@Bebop: woow the title of the song sounds great!

Here are the lyrics of the song ste and Bebop named :)

Man for all Seasons

One eye on the shadows, protecting his fellows,
From sun up till the moon on his back.
Send the villains to Hades, a hit with the ladies
a stallion, in the sack.

You can't get your life back, when right follows left Jack,
The more you see, the less you know.
When others would leak it, his service is secret.
Plays God when it's your time to go.

Queen and country safe and sound, with villains six feet under ground.
And no one knows cause no ones found any trace of a man for all seasons.
Loves 'em and leaves 'em alone....so alone
And you and i wouldn't have a clue, whose doing what,
why, when and who, up the creek with no conoe,
watch out for the man for all seasons,
loves 'em and leaves 'em alone......so alone (but safe at home)

From the House of Lords saving Norfolk broads,
Commoners and land a gentry.
His word is Bond with a brunette or blonde, baby its so elementry.
For the man never ends, stop your life with one stare,
See the film you'll know how it goes
This aint no fiction, just check the diction, with pro quo, a pro's pro.

Hey fellas, dont be jealous, when the madfe him they broke the mould.
So chrasimatic, with an a automatic, Never prematurely shooting his load.

Queen and country safe and sound, with villains six feet under ground.
And no one knows cause no ones foundany trace of a man for all seasons.
Loves 'em and leaves 'em alone....alone
And you and i would never know whose doing what,
why when and who, up the creek with no conoe,
watch out for the man for all seasons,
loves 'em and leaves 'em alone......so alone (but safe at home)

But safe at home [x6]

Queen and country safe and sound, with villains six feet under ground.
And no one knows cause no ones foundany trace of a man for all seasons.
Loves 'em and leaves 'em alone....alone
And you and i would never know whose doing what,
why when and who, up the creek with no conoe,
watch out for the man for all seasons,
loves 'em and leaves 'em alone......so alone (but safe at home)

[Repeat to fade.......]

Let me entertain you

Hell is gone and heaven's here
There's nothing left for you to fear
Shake your arse come over here
Now scream
I'm a burning effigy
Of everything I used to be
You're my rock of empathy, my dear

So come on let me entertain you
Let me entertain you

Life's too short for you to die
So grab yourself an alibi
Heaven knows your mother lied
Mon cher
Separate your right from wrongs
Come and sing a different song
The kettle's on so don't be long
Mon cher

So come on let me entertain you
Let me entertain you

Look me up in the yellow pages
I will be your rock of ages
Your see through fads and your crazy phases yeah
Little Bo Peep has lost his sheep
He popped a pill and fell asleep
The dew is wet but the grass is sweet my dear

Your mind gets burned
With the habits you've learned
But we're the generation that's got to be heard
You're tired of your teachers and your school's a drag
You're not going to end up like your mum and dad

So come on let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
Let me entertain you

He may be good he may be outta sight
But he can't be here so come around tonight
Here is the place where the feeling grows
You gotta get high before you taste the lows
So come on

Let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
So come on let me entertain you
Let me entertain you

Come on come on come on come on
Come on come on come on come on
Come on come on come on come on

Repeat

Let Love be your energy

Out of a million seeds
Only the strongest one breathes
You made a miracle mother
I'll make a man out of me

Daddy where's the sun gone from the sky?
What did we do wrong, why did it die?
And all the grown ups say 'sorry kids we got no reply'

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I've got more than I need
When your love shines down on me

Every tear that you cry
Will be replaced when you die
Why don't you love your brother?
Are you out of your mind?

Daddy where's the sun gone from the sky
What did we do wrong, why did it die
And if you've got no love for me then I'll say goodbye

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I've got more than I need
When your love shines down on me

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I can't contain how I feel
When your love shines down on me
Well if you want it come and make a stance
So when it's in your hands
People show me love

Well if you want it come and make a stance
So when it's in your hands
People show me love

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I got more than I need
When your love shines down on me

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I can't contain how I feel
When your love shines down on me

Eternity

Close your eyes so you dont feel them,
They dont need to see you cry
I cant promise I will heal you,
But if you want to I will try.

I sing the summer serenade
The past is done, we've been betrayed, its true.
Someone said the truth will out
I believe without a doubt, in you

You were there for summer dreamin',
And you gave me what I need.
And I hope you'll find your freedom,
For eternity, for eternity.

Yesterday when you were walking,
You talked about your Mom and Dad.
What they did had made you happy,
What they didnt made you sad.

We sat and watched the sun go down,
Picked a star before we lost the moon.
Youth is wasted on the young,
Before you know its come and gone too soon.

You were there for summer dreaming,
And you gave me what I need.
And I hope you'll find your freedom,
For eternity, for eternity.

I sing the summer serenade,
The past is done, we've been betrayed, its true.
Youth is wasted on the young,
Before you know its come and gone, too soon.

You were there for summer dreamin',
And you are a friend indeed.
And I hope you'll find your freedom,
For eternity.

You were there for summer dreamin',
And you are a friend indeed.
And I know you'll find your freedom,
Eventually, for eternity, for eternity.

Every Little Thing (He Does is Magic) modified

Though Iíve tried before to tell him
Of the feelings I have for him in my heart
Every time that I come near him
I just lose my nerve
As Iíve done from the start

Every little thing he does is magic
Everything he do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for him goes on

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
Itís a big enough umbrella
But itís always me that ends up getting wet

Every little thing he does is magic
Everything he do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for him goes on

I resolve to call him up a thousand times a day
And ask him if sheíll marry me in some old fashioned way
But my silent fears have gripped me
Long before I reach the phone
Long before my tongue has tripped me
Must I always be alone?

Every little thing he does is magic
Everything he do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for him goes on
