Bassey, Shirley - What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life? Lyrics




I want to see your face in every kind of light
In fields of dawn and forests of the night
And when you stand before the candles on a cake
Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make

What are you doing the rest of your life?
North and South and East and West of your life
I have only one request of your life
That you spend it all with me

All the seasons and the times of your days
All the nickels and the dimes of your days
Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days
All begin and end with me

I want to see your face in every kind of light
In the fields of dawn and the forests of the night
And when you stand before the candles on a cake
Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make

Those tomorrows waiting deep in your eyes
In the world of love that you keep in your eyes
I'll awaken what's asleep in your eyes
It may take a kiss or two

Through all of my life
Summer, Winter, Spring, and Fall of my life
All I ever will recall of my life
Is all of my life with you

    Tradução

    *What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life (tradução)*

    *O que você vai fazer pelo resto da sua vida?*

    Eu quero ver seu rosto em todo tipo de luz

    Nos campos da madrugada e nas florestas da noite

    E quando você estiver perante as velas de um bolo

    Oh, deixe-me ser o único a ouvir o silêncio que você deseja


    O que você vai fazer pelo resto da sua vida?

    Norte e Sul, Leste e Oeste de sua vida

    Eu tenho apenas um pedido de sua vida

    Que você o gaste todo comigo


    Todas as estações e os tempos de seus dias

    Todas os níqueis e as moedas do seu dia

    Deixe as razões e as rimas de seus dias

    Todos começam e terminam comigo


    Eu quero ver seu rosto em todo tipo de luz

    Nos campos da madrugada e nas florestas da noite

    E quando você estiver perante as velas de um bolo

    Oh, deixe-me ser o único a ouvir o silêncio que você deseja


    Os amanhãs esperando profundamente em seus olhos

    No mundo do amor que você mantem em seus olhos

    Eu vou acordar o que está adormecido em seus olhos

    Pode demorar um ou dois beijos


    Durante toda a minha vida

    Verão, inverno, primavera e outono da minha vida

    Tudo que eu sempre lembrarei da minha vida

    *É toda a minha vida com você*

    RIP Mr Legrand that was our wedding song.We met him in New York one evening at the Blue Note for his first performance in NY.I know he had probably heard that about What are you doing the rest of your life before,but now that he is gone I’m happy we let him know how special that song was and is for us.Our version is interpreted by Johnny Mathis ,however Ms Bassey brings a whole another dimension to the song.

    Shirley Bassey Music and Vids

    Michel Legrand. He wrote this song..

  41. Miriam Batista

    WHAT ARE YOU DOING THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. Especial! S. Bassey

  42. colsome miah

    She always sings in italics...unparalleled among singers, Dame Shirley...

    colsome miah

    On aisle seat at Westbury...passed by smiling graciously, then stepped back and took my hand...guess I looked dazzled as I was

  43. Matilda Martin

    So fabulous Shirley Bassey so beautifully and she is gorgeous too. I think everyone is aware of her success especially in Britain she is still well known love her a big fan god bless her and her family ,

    Shirley Bassey Music and Vids

    Matilda: You are right on!   To this day, Shirley Bassey is the largest selling female artists in the United Kingdom, and she was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records in 2001.   For Bassey, it isn't about the number of hits, although she has had quite a few over the past 6 decades, but more about her unbelievable vocal abilities.

  44. Cindy

    Shirley had a great fan in my dad, so she is not only a great performer she holds memories of him also.

  45. MrSoothingjazz

    magical quality to her voice

  46. Ervin Neves Rodrigues

    Miss Bassey, don't you please ever leave us.

    xavierdh2000

    Ervin Neves Rodrigues I feel the same way

  47. rod er

    I will listen to this video, a million times, for always; one of the best from Bassey !!

    colsome miah

    Amber Holcomb but I adore Dame but on that song this 16 year old girl is more poignant and wistful

  48. Kym Sutton

    She never got the fame she deserved !

    Kodi James

    With 'her' VOCAL ABILITY...is it any 'wonder' that 'SHE' was the one 'chosen' to sing the (title song) to "Goldfinger"!!

  49. Pascal Liger

    Funny how this song is not famous in France, even in the french version by Sacha Distel " Que feras-tu de ta vie ".  But what a hit all over the world !

  50. Adnan Duane Razack

    As a child in London your presence, your voice, your smile mesmerized me....as an adult ...all those attributes you have still do, you are true magnificence!

  51. Cristhina Eliachar

    Simplesmente fantastico, Bassey é divina e LEGRAND indiscritível. SOBERBO

  52. Richard Condon

    pick an instrument and ask which is shirley trying to play through. oh, and she's doing it with the composer of this fantastic song. legrande continued to do variations on this song right to the end of his life. he knew that it was important music and he never left it alone. he kept taking his painting down, looked at it, touched it up, put it back till next time. so now it's your turn.

  53. Laurène Alban

    I want to see your face in every kind of light
    In fields of dawn and forests of the night
    And when you stand before the candles on a cake
    Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make

    What are you doing the rest of your life?
    North and South and East and West of your life
    I have only one request of your life
    That you spend it all with me

    All the seasons and the times of your days
    All the nickels and the dimes of your days
    Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days
    All begin and end with me

    I want to see your face in every kind of light
    In the fields of dawn and the forests of the night
    And when you stand before the candles on a cake
    Oh, let me be the one to hear the silent wish you make

    Those tomorrows waiting deep in your eyes
    In the world of love that you keep in your eyes
    I'll awaken what's asleep in your eyes
    It may take a kiss or two

    Through all of my life
    Summer, Winter, Spring, and Fall of my life
    All I ever will recall of my life
    Is all of my life with you

    How good can it get Laurene!!!

  59. willie shank

    as always shirley  just great

  60. Rhonda Bowman

    I can't help but feel wonderful listening to her sing.  Awesome performer!

  61. AvalonMorley

    Simply marvelous! And I don't think I've ever heard "The Magic Is You" before, or even heard of it. Was the music to that also composed by Michel Legrand?  And who wrote the lyrics?  And were they written in English first, or French, or some other language?  Nice to find such a happy, stylish song for the first time.  Brava to Miss (Dame?) Bassey, and all the musicians here.

    Shirley Bassey Music and Vids

    Avalong - The Magic Is You was written by Stelios Vlavianos and Robert Rupen

    @sas9023055
    Thanks so much for the reply and info. I don't think I've ever heard of those two, so will check them out. Aloha.

  62. Ydee W

    I love her tone...she is a wonderful singer!

  63. Maxime Jacoby

    Class & feminity

  64. willie shank

    the wonderful dame shirley what more can anyone say aint she a blessing

  65. donkiddick08

    if you do upload it, it will be the only version on here. this may indicate that EMI are indeed blocking it.

  66. Shirley Bassey Music and Vids

    Don...I haven't done a clip on that song, but I think it's a good idea. Unfortunately, it's hit-miss when I upload a song if EMI decides to block it's view from certain countries. I haven't figured out why some songs from the same LP are allowed in certain countries and others are blocked. Anyway, maybe I'll do a clip on that song..Regards, Scot

  67. donkiddick08

    scot. have you got 'it's magic'?

  68. Brian Hamilton

    Wow, was she marvelous! That performance will forever be an unforgettable moment in Oscar history.

  69. willie shank

    the wonderfull shirley and that voice she is very special always makes me feel good thanks girl

  70. missycake1

    Love this song & especially by Shirley - fabulous!

  71. willie shank

    there is only one shirley bassey makes anything she does. so easy

  72. Shirley Bassey Music and Vids

    ATTENTION: Dame Shirley Bassey will be appearing at the 2013 Academy Awards Show In Hollywood on February 24th. She will perform for the 50th James Bond anniversary celebration! Wonderful News! Bassey is herself celebrating 60 (Diamond) years in Show Business, starting back in 1953.

  73. Micky Alberta

    Shirley Bassey is an AWESOME singer.

  74. IFINEVERSING

    what a wonderful singer, she `reads` the music and lyrics and then acts the performance...it is an art that few can do properly

  75. chuckgary

    I've heard all the great versions (I think - B. S., Dusty, et al) - NO ONE, does this Michel Legrand classic, ("What are you doing...") with the meaning and mastery as Dame Shirley Bassey!

  76. grai

    LeGrand seemed to be really enjoying it which tells you everything - he wrote it and must have heard every version

  77. donkiddick08

    once again bassey covers a song and puts the original in the shade.

  78. Shirley Bassey Music and Vids

    Graham,,,I personally enjoy anything at Diana Ross has done over her, also, very long career. Thks for suggesting, Regards, Scot

  79. LENse Photo

    best version of the song ever, period, sorry D Ross.

  80. graham simpson

    dame shirley truly inspirational fabulous,but check the diana ross version,truly beautiful.

  81. Shirley Bassey Music and Vids

    @mindrenewed - A movie has just been made on Shirley's early life and start into show business. The first title is, 'Shirley Bassey - Shirley (The Movie - The Early Years)' - Then click on Vid Responses to go to next part.. You might want to give it a view before it's taken down. It's only an hour ten minutes long, so if you are not familiar with Shirley's life you might not understand some of the parts. Short movie...many quick change-ups w/o explanations. Regards, Scot

  82. Wilkinson Family Channel

    They don't make music like this anymo...wait... they don't make music any more. I think Mya Rudloph could play her in a movie. If you've seen her sing on Up All NIght, you know what I mean, LOL.
