(continuación de la serie iniciada en EL PUNTO Z)


intérprete original: COCKNEY REBEL
letra y música: Steve Harley

Gee, but it's hard when one lowers one's guard to the vultures
Me, I regard it a tortuous hardship that smoulders
like a peppermint eaten away
(will fight, will i swagger or sway?)
Hee, hee, M'Lady, she cries like a baby to scold us
see her tumbling down, tumbling down

Hail! to the monkey; we're having a funky reunion
Wasted and sunk, he can only have Sunday communion
he got nicotine stains in his eyes
he got nothing to protect but his pride
Oh! smother the kiss or be drownded in blissful contusion
(replace with)
Oh! smother the kiss or be drownded in blissful confusion

see it tumbling down, tumbling down

Juvenile tale, (see the Titanic sail into Brighton)
The Hemingway stacatto, the tragic bravado can frighten!
to be here, there and everywhere's fine
but do you have to be so swift all the time?
Deliver the Dawn to the Moulin-Rouge on the Horizon
watch it tumbling down, tumbling down

(Refrain) Oh! dear, look what they've done to the blues, blues, blues

«Amo a Steve Harley como se ama a un gemelo o a esa figura que se agita al otro lado del espejo (fragmento del texto que publiqué en el nº 18/19 de EL CORAZON DEL BOSQUE)
