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 ...

Rhymes and Reasons (John Denver Cover)

So you speak to me of sadness
And the coming of the winter
Fear that is within you now
It seems to never end
And the dreams that have escaped you
And the hope that you've forgotten
You tell me that you need me now
You want to be my friend
 
And you wonder where we're going
Where's the rhyme, where's the reason?
And it's you cannot accept
It is here, we must begin
To seek the wisdom of the children
And the graceful way of flowers in the wind
 
For the children and the flowers
Are my sisters and my brothers
Their laughter and their loveliness
Could clear a cloudy day
Like the music of the mountains
And the colors of the rainbow
They're a promise of the future
And a blessing for today
 
Though the cities start to crumble
And the towers fall around us
The sun is slowly fading
And it's colder than the sea
It is written: From the desert
To the mountains, they shall lead us
By the hand and by the heart
They will comfort you and me
In their innocence and trusting
They will teach us to be free
 
For the children and the flowers
Are my sisters and my brothers
Their laughter and their loveliness
Could clear a cloudy day
And the song that I am singing
Is a prayer to non-believers
Come and stand beside us
We can find a better way
 

Gravity

No matter where you’re going
No matter where you be
Wherever the wind is blowing
Let me be your gravity

I can be your hero
I can be your fantasy
I can be the cure
Yeah
Let me be
Your remedy

Right beside you
I’ll never leave you

Let me be your heart and your company
I’ll let you be the one who can lean on me
I’ll catch you when you fall
When you’re falling free
Let me be, be your gravity

Let me be your wings
When you’re flying high
I’m gonna raise you up till you touch the sky
I’ll catch you when you fall
When you’re falling free
Let me be, be your gravity

Touch me, inseparably
Like gravity

As high as the highest mountain
As low as the deepest sea
Oh settle down […] let me be your gravity

Let me be your heart and your company
I’ll let you be the one who can lean on me
I’ll catch you when you fall
When you’re falling free
Let me be, be your gravity

Let me be your wings
When you’re flying high
I’m gonna raise you up till you touch the sky
I’ll catch you when you fall
When you’re falling free
Let me be, be your gravity

Touch inseparably
It’s all we’ll ever be
You be gravity

Let me be your heart and your company
I’ll let you be the one who can lean on me
I’ll catch you when you fall
When you’re falling free
Let me be, be your gravity

Let me be your wings
When you’re flying high
I’m gonna raise you up till you touch the sky
I’ll catch you when you fall
When you’re falling free
Let me be, be your gravity

I’ll catch you when you fall
When you’re falling free
Let me be, be your gravity

Elevators (Me & you)

One for the money, yes sir, two for the show
A couple of years ago on Headland and Delowe
Was the start of something good
Where me and my nigga rode the Marta, through the hood
Just tryna find that hook up, now everyday we looked up at the ceiling
Watching ceiling fans go 'round, tryna catch that feeling
Off instrumentals, had my pencil and plus my paper
We caught the 86 Lithonia headed to Decatur
Writing rhymes, tryna find our spot off in that light
Light off in that spot, knowing that we could rock
Doing the hole in the wall clubs, this shit here must stop, like 'Freeze!'
We making the crowd move, but we not making no G's, and that's a no-no
Check it, a one-two, a one-two dope niggas in the Cadillac
They call us, went from Player's Ball to ballers
Putting the South up on the map was like Little Rock to banging
Niggas say mothafuck that playing, they paying, we staying laying vocals
Locales done made it with them big boys up in this industry
'OutKast, yeah, them niggas, they making big noise'
Over a million sold to this day, niggas they take it lightly
'96 gon' be that year that all y'all playa haters can bite me, I'm out this bitch
 
Me and you
Your momma and your cousin too
Rolling down the strip on Vogues
Coming up, slamming Cadillac doors
Me and you
Your momma and your cousin too
Rolling down the strip on Vogues
Coming up, slamming Cadillac doors
 
Back in the day, when I was younger, hunger
Looking to fill me belly with that Rally's bullshit
Pull shit off, like it was supposed to be pulled
Full as a tick, I was stoned like them white boys
Smoking them white girls, before them blunts, got crunk, chunky asses
Passes getting thrown like Hail Mary's, and they looking like Halle Berry's
So so fine, intertwined, but we ain't sipping wine
We's just chilling, I'm the rabid villain, and I'm so high
Smoking freely, me, Lil B, Reek, Mone and Shug
And my little brother James, thangs changed in the hood
Where I live at, them rats know, 'Momma I want to sing
But momma I want to trick, and momma I'm sucking dick now'
We moving on up in the world like elevators
Me and the crew, we pimps like '82, me and you like Tony Toni Tone
(Like this, East Point and we gone)
 
Me and you
Your momma and your cousin too
Rolling down the strip on Vogues
Coming up, slamming Cadillac doors
Me and you
Your momma and your cousin too
Rolling down the strip on Vogues
Coming up, slamming Cadillac doors
 
Got stopped at the mall the other day, heard a call from the other way
That I just came from, some nigga was saying something, talking 'bout
Smoke something 'Hey man, you remember me from school?'
'No not really' But he kept smiling like a clown, facial expression looking silly
And he kept asking me, 'What kinda car you drive? I know you paid
I know y'all got beaucoup of hoes from all them songs that y'all done made'
And I replied that I had been going through the same things that he had
True, I've got more fans than the average man, but not enough loot to last me
To the end of the week, I live by the beat, like you live check-to-check
If you don't move your feet then I don't eat, so we like neck-to-neck
Yes, we done come a long way like them slim-ass cigarettes
From Virginia, this ain't gon' stop, so we just gon' continue
 
Me and you
Your momma and your cousin too
Rolling down the strip on Vogues
Coming up, slamming Cadillac doors
Me and you
Your momma and your cousin too
Rolling down the strip on Vogues
Coming up, slamming Cadillac doors
 

Say it Now

Can we work this out
I don't want to close the door
Before the sun goes down
We can't let this go to far
I'll do anything
To meet you anywhere you are
Cause it doesn't matter anymore
Who was right or wrong
If we could only find the words we lost
Before what we have is gone
 
Say it now, I hope we find a way
To say it now, don't be afraid
To say it now, everything we're keeping inside
Don't wait just let your heart speak
Don't waste another heart beat
Cause we'll never know
Until we let it out, let it out
Say it say it now
Say it say it now
 
My heart is wearing thin
I don't want to fight a war
That no ones going to win
All this time we've grown apart
Looking for an end
If I'm the one that's holding on
Holding back
Here's how we begin
 
Say it now, I hope we find a way
To say it now, don't be afraid
To say it now, everything we're keeping inside
Don't wait just let your heart speak
Don't waste another heart beat
Cause we'll never know
Until we let it out, let it out
Say it say it now
Say it say it now
 
I hope we leave it all behind
No more getting lost between the lines
Can we work this out
I don't want to close the door
Before the sun goes down
 
Say it now, I hope we find a way
To say it now, don't be afraid
To say it now, everything we're keeping inside
Don't wait just let your heart speak
Don't waste another heart beat
Cause we'll never know
Until we let it out, let it out
Say it say it now
Say it say it now
Cause we'll never know
Until we let it out, let it out
Say it say it now
