The Electric Prunes. Ain’t it hard.

noviembre 8, 2009


Canción en video.

Nombre: Ain’t it hard.

· · ·

Letra:

Aint it hard when you go out to have yourself a blowout, and everbody’s bein’ cool, ain’t it hard when you find out your mother was a drop out, and she don’t know the golden rule. Well you wake up in the mornin with your eyes on fire, and you go to bed at night wonderin’ who you are.

Ain’t it hard when you find out you can’t get to far out, and take care of business too, ain’t it hard when you know that there’s no place to go, and Dillon done been there too. Well you’re mother’s in the bathroom with acid in her head, and there’s no place to go cuz the town’s all dead.

Ain’t it hard when you wake-up, yo puttin on yo makeup , so people can’t see your face, and you walk down the street, tellin’ everyone you meet, just how to win the human race. You better write yourself a folk song and sing it real loud, and you better not forget that you’re in the in crowd… you’re in the in crowd baby.

Moby Grape. Sitting by the window.

octubre 30, 2009


Canción.

Nombre: Sitting by the window.

· · ·

Letra:

I was sitting by the window, watching for the rain, the reflection of your picture, against my window pane. But just the same, I’m playing my game, and I guess you’re playing it too, go ahead and play it on through.

The times we had together, it was sunny every day, now it’s cloudy every morning, and it stays that way all day. But just the same, I’m playing my game, and I guess you’re playing it too, go ahead and play it on through.

I was sitting by the window, watching for the rain, I thought you were beside me, just like before the rain. But just the same, I’m playing my game, and I guess you’re playing it too, go ahead and play it on through.

Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Victoria.

· · ·

Letra:

Long ago life was clean, sex was bad and obscene, and the rich were so mean, stately homes for the Lords, croquet lawns, village greens, Victoria was my queen, Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, ‘toria.

I was born, lucky me, in a land that I love, though I am poor, I am free, when I grow I shall fight, for this land I shall die, let her sun never set, Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, ‘toria, Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, toria.

Land of hope and gloria, land of my Victoria, land of hope and gloria, Land of my Victoria, Victoria, ‘toria, Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, ‘toria.

Canada to India, Australia to Cornwall, Singapore to Hong Kong, from the West to the East, from the rich to the poor, Victoria loved them all, Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, ‘toria, Victoria, Victoria, Victoria.

The White Stripes. The air near my fingers.

octubre 10, 2009

Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: The air near my fingers.

· · ·

Letra:

Life is so boring, it’s really got me snoring, I’m wearing out the flooring, in a cheap motel, but I don’t have to work, and I might be sinning, but I never have to listen to, the rings of school bells.

Don’t you remember? You told me in December, that a boy is not a man, until he makes a stand, will, I’m not a genius, but maybe you’ll remember this, I never said I wanted to be a man. I get nervous when she comes around.

My mom is so caring, she really got me staring, at all the crazy little things, she does for sure, and I can’t seem to think of, another kind of love, that a boy could ever get, from anyone but her. I get nervous when she comes around.

The Chocolate Watchband. Come on.

octubre 9, 2009

Canción.

Nombre: Come on.

· · ·

Letra:

Everything is wrong since me and my baby parted, all day long I’m walkin’ ‘cause I couldn’t get my car started, laid off from my job and I can’t afford to check it, I wish somebody’d come along and run into it and wreck it. Come on, since me and my baby parted, come on, I can’t get started, come on, I can’t afford to check, I wish somebody’d come along and run into it and wreck it.

Everything is wrong since I’ve been without you, ev’ry night I lay awake thinkin’ about you, ev’ry time the phone rings it sounds like thunder, some stupid guy try’n’ to reach another number, come on, since I’ve been without you, come on, always thinkin’ about you, come on, phone sounds like thunder, some stupid guy try’n’ to reach another number.

Everything is wrong since I last saw you, baby, I really wanna see you and I don’t mean maybe, I’m doin’ ev’rything try’n’ to make you see, that I belong to you, hon, and you belong to me. Come on, I wanna see you, baby, come on, I don’t mean maybe, come on, I’m try’n’ to make you see, that I belong to you and you belong to me.

Come on, I gotta see you, baby, come on, I don’t mean maybe, come on, I’ve gotta make you see, that I belong to you and you belong to me. Come on, come on, come on, come on.
