Country Joe & the Fish - Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine paroles lyrics

La langue: 

Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine

She hides in an attic concealed on a shelf
Behind volumes of literature based on herself
And runs across the pages like some tiny elf
Knowing that it's hard to find
Stuff way back in her mind
Winds up spending all of her time
Trying to memorize every line
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Sweet lady of death wants me to die
So she can come sit by my bedside and sigh
And wipe away the tears from all my friends eyes
Then softly she will explain
Just exactly who was to blame
For causing me to go insane
And finally blow out my brain
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Well you know that it's a shame and a pity
You were raised up in the city
And you never learned nothing 'bout country ways
Ah 'bout country ways.
 
The joy of life she dresses in black
With celestial secrets engraved in her back
And her face keeps flashing that she's got the knack
But you know when you look into her eyes
All she's learned she's had to memorize
And the only way you'll ever get her high
Is to let her do her thing and then watch you die
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Now she's the one who gives us all those magical things
And reads us stories out of the I Ching
Then she passes out a whole new basket of rings
That when you put on your hand
Makes you one of the Angel Band
And gives you the power to be a man
But what it does for her you never quite understand
Sweet Lorraine, ah sweet Lorraine.
 
Well you know that it's a shame and a pity
You were raised up in the city
And you never learned nothing 'bout country ways
Oh 'bout country ways, oh 'bout country ways
Yeah about country ways, oh country ways ...

Love Is a Game [Si es por amor]

I want it all
It wasn’t hard to decide (hard to decide)
and when I fall
I know it’s got to be real (ooh, ooh)
 
It’s just the way I’m feeling here inside my heart
I feel just like a shining star
Everything here starts from zero
But we’ll take it to the top
 
There are no rules
And it can be so hard to handle
When it’s a heart you gotta gamble
You’re going down if you’re feeling sentimental
'Cause love ain't gentle
 
If you had a bad day
It can make you feel the right way
Love gives you
More and more power
 
Now I see love is a game
That can take your life and shake you
Just when you think it’s so sweet it all gets so rough
 
Love is a game
That can break your heart or make you
Like a fantasy
Like a melody
Like a destiny whoa whoa
 
I’m like an eagle flying to my destination
(You’re waiting at the station)
I get the feeling that you’re on another planet
Do you understand it?
 
And no I really can't see you and I together
(No one knows if it’s forever)
And if you’re only really looking for a guarantee
I can give you that
 
If you had a bad day
It can make you feel the right way
Love gives you
More and more power
 
Now I see love is a game
That can take your life and shake you
Just when you think it’s so sweet it all gets so rough
 
Love is a game
That can break your heart or make you
Like a fantasy
Like a melody
Like a destiny
 
If you had a bad day
It can make you feel the right way
Love gives you
More and more power
 
Now I see love is a game
That can take your life and shake you
Just when you think it’s so sweet it all gets so rough
 
Love is a game
That can break your heart or make you
Like a fantasy
Like a melody
Like a destiny whoa whoa
 

Wondering

I will arise:
In the depths, I will open my eyes;
As my breath almost fails me, survive.
Wait - there's something unclear,
There's something I fear now drawing close.
Could it be you? Whose is that voice?
Is it now time to make a choice?
Ah - that irrational pain!
This ridiculous brain now bursts with joy.
Could it be me? Could it be now?
Should I begin to take my vows?
I will return:
As I live, as I breathe, as I burn
I swear I will come through,
With my hands stretching out in the dark,
With my eye pressed up tight to the glass,
Wondering if it's all been true.
Wondering, wondering, wondering...
Wondering if it's all ... wondering if it's all been true...
 

The Righteous And The Wicked

I can't rest in war
Will you be my friend
Dark Ages never change
I can't comprehend
Kiss me we self destruct
Can you hear me Lord
Yes I think we're fucked
But I can't rest in war
 
The righteous and the wicked, war and peace
The killing fist of the human beast
P.O.P - Prodigies Of Peace
Hear me when I'm calling you from my knees
I am playing for a better day
 
Holy mother earth
Crying into space
Tears on her pretty face
For she has been raped
Killing your future blood
Fill her with disease
Global abortion please
That is what she needs
 
The righteous and the wicked, war and peace
The killing fist of the human beast
P.O.P - Prodigies Of Peace
Hear me when I'm calling you from my knees
I am playing for a better day
 
Are we fire flies
Flashing in the night
Big thunder rumble fish
Did you get it right
Headstrong battle song
Exploding souls be gone
Marvin Gaye my love
Where did we go wrong
 
The righteous and the wicked, war and peace
The killing fist of the human beast
P.O.P - Prodigies Of Peace
Hear me when I'm calling you from my knees
I am playing for a better day
 

Born To Run

I’m in way over my head,
Can’t find the sunset over me 
The mirror in front of my bed
Sees the one I said I’d never be 
 
Try to escape from the storms,
Spinning over like a hurricane
Can’t get away in the dark
 
'Cause I don’t wanna leave without you now
Only gravity can hold us down
Just hold on to faith when we’re still young
We were born to run!
 
'Cause I don’t wanna leave without you now
Only gravity can hold us down
Just hold on to faith when we’re still young
We were born to run!
 
The stolen innocence weights on my shoulders
It’s heavy now
These broken nights we spend
They shine through the cracks till they way out
 
Try to escape from the storms,
Spinning over like a hurricane
Can’t get away in the dark
 
'Cause I don’t wanna leave without you now
Only gravity can hold us down
Just hold on to faith when we’re still young
We were born to run!
 
'Cause I don’t wanna leave without you now
Only gravity can hold us down
Just hold on to faith when we’re still young
We were born to run!
 
'Cause I don’t wanna leave without you now
Only gravity can hold us down
Just hold on to faith when we’re still young
We were born to run!
 
'Cause I don’t wanna leave without you now
Only gravity can hold us down
Just hold on to faith when we’re still young
We were born to run!
