Un regalo

De “El violinista en el tejado“, película de 1971, se pueden sacar muchas cosas. La descubrí hace unas semanas y me cautivó. Os dejo un vídeo (y la letra de la canción en inglés) en el que Tevye (el marido) le pregunta a Golde (la mujer) si le quiere.

Con veinticinco años de matrimonio a la espalda (y matrimonio acordado por los padres) no está de más la pregunta. A quien no haya visto la película, se la recomiendo.

(Tevye)
Golde, I have decided to give Perchik permission to become engaged to our daughter, Hodel.

(Golde)
What??? He’s poor! He has nothing, absolutely nothing!

(Tevye)
He’s a good man, Golde.

I like him. And what’s more important, Hodel likes him. Hodel loves him.

So what can we do?
It’s a new world… A new world. Love. Golde…

Do you love me?

(Golde)
Do I what?

(Tevye)
Do you love me?

(Golde)
Do I love you?
With our daughters getting married
And this trouble in the town
You’re upset, you’re worn out
Go inside, go lie down!
Maybe it’s indigestion

(Tevye)
Golde I’m asking you a question…

Do you love me?

(Golde)
You’re a fool

(Tevye)
I know…

But do you love me?

(Golde)
Do I love you?
For twenty-five years I’ve washed your clothes
Cooked your meals, cleaned your house
Given you children, milked the cow
After twenty-five years, why talk about love right now?

(Tevye)
Golde, The first time I met you
Was on our wedding day
I was scared

(Golde)
I was shy

(Tevye)
I was nervous

(Golde)
So was I

(Tevye)
But my father and my mother
Said we’d learn to love each other
And now I’m asking, Golde
Do you love me?

(Golde)
I’m your wife

(Tevye)
I know…
But do you love me?

(Golde)
Do I love him?
For twenty-five years I’ve lived with him
Fought him, starved with him
Twenty-five years my bed is his
If that’s not love, what is?

(Tevye)
Then you love me?

(Golde)
I suppose I do

(Tevye)
And I suppose I love you too

(Both)
It doesn’t change a thing
But even so
After twenty-five years
It’s nice to know
