   Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand
by John T. Marck

 



Komm Gib Mir Deine Hand

Lennon/McCartney/Nicholas/Heller

On January 29, 1964, while the Beatles were in Paris, they recorded two German-language renditions of their two most recent singles, I Want To Hold Your Hand and She Loves. Most groups during this time were required to record their hits in European languages, but after recording these two songs The Beatles said never again. In Truth the German version does not translate at all like the original song. Transcribed below in red, is I Want To Hold Your Hand, - well sort of. Below this, in green, is written the English version of I Want To Hold You Hand, followed by the actual German translation in blue. You can see that not only was the title different, but the lyrics as well.

O komm doch, komm zu mir, du nimmst mir den Verstand

O komm doch, komm zu mir komm gib mir deine Hand,

Komm gib mir deine hand, komm gib mir deine hand

O du bist so sch÷n, sch÷n wie ein Diamant

Ich will mit dir gehen, komm gib mir deine hand,

Komm gib mir deine hand, komm gib mir deine hand

In deinen Armen bin ich glcklich und froh,

Dass war noch nie bei einer andern einmal so, einmal so, einmal so.

O komm doch, komm zu mir, du nimmst mir den Verstand.

O komm doch, komm zu mir, komm gib mir deine hand,

Komm gib mir deine hand, komm gib mir deine hand.

In deinen Armen bin ich glcklich und froh, dass war noch nie bei einer andern

Einmal so, einmal so, einmal so.

O du bist so sch÷n, sch÷n wie ein Diamant

Ich will mit dir gehen, komm gib mir deine hand,

Komm gib mir deine hand, komm gib mir deine hand,

Komm gib mir deine hand

 

I Want To Hold Your Hand

Oh Yeah I'll tell you something, I think you'll understand

When I say that something I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand

Oh, please say to me you'll let me be your man

And please say to me you'll let me hold your hand

Not, let me hold your hand

I want to hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy inside

It's such a feeling that my love

I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide

Yeah, you got that something I think you'll understand

When I say that something

I want to hold your hand, I want to hold your hand,

I want to hold your hand

And when I touch you I feel happy inside

It's such a feeling that my love

I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide

Yeah, you got that something I think you'll understand

When I say that something

I want to hold your hand,

I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand,

I want to hold your hand

Come, Give Me Your Hand

Oh come on, come to me

You drive me crazy

Oh come on, come to me

Come, give me your hand

Come, give me your hand

Come, give me your hand

Oh you are so pretty

As pretty as a diamond

I want to be with you

Come, give me your hand

Come, give me your hand

Come, give me your hand

In your arms I am happy and glad

With any other girl it was never
