Two for the Road

This is my oldest son, Reggie, on the flute and his friend, Andrew, on the guitar, playing Henry Mancini’s Two for the Road.

This song is from the 1967 movie of the same title. It stars Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney.

Why do I think that there’s a Tagalog version of this song? Can anybody tell me if I’m right and the title of the Tagalog song?

Two for the Road
by Henry Mancini

If you’re feeling fancy free,
come wander through the world with me,
and any place we chance to be,
will be a rendezvous.

Two for the road,
we’ll travel through the years,
collecting precious memories,
selecting souvenirs
and living life the way we please.

In the summertime the sun will shine,
in winter we will drink summer wine,
and any day that you are mine,
will be a lovely day.

As long as love still wears a smile,
I know that we’ll be two for the road,
and that’s a long long while.

    I’m not familiar with this song, but I am familiar with Sinatra’s “One for my Baby (and one more for the road)”. 😀

    The rhythm in Mancini’s piece sounds a bit like “Girl from Ipanema”, very samba-like.
