ABC Wednesday - K

For my Beatles song this week I have to cheat just a little. Well, it's not really cheating as this was released in the US on Past Masters, Volume One, Something New. The title? Komm Gib Mir Deine Hand. Any guesses what that means?

To see the answer, run your mouse over the beginning of the line below.
I Want to Hold Your Hand of course!

To take part in ABC Wednesday, go here.

Postscript
In answer to Aileni's query, I would imagine it comes form the Hamburg days, yes. And, interestingly, the German translators are credited as co-authors of this version.

Come give me your hand...In Dutch: "Kom geef me je hand"...
Mozart had in his Don Giovanni : Reach mir die Hand ....

Thanks for visiting!

Using Beatles songs are never cheating, just inspired.

Ich spreche nur ein bisschen Deutsch: "Come give me your hand"....better known as "I Want to Hold Your Hand." Ah, such memories...watching the Beatles sing this on The Ed Sullivan Show. Sitting on the stairs with my best friends listening to the song on the radio...being a crazy, starstruck teenager all over again. Thanks for the memories, Liz!

"Viens me donner la main", in French
Of course, I remember the song "I want to hold your hand"
French translation "laisse-moi tenir ta main"
A picture full of ...kindness !
