They say that yellow corn makes the best kind of shine,
You better turn that corn to bread and quit that makin' shine
'cuz God don't like it (and I don't either),
Yeah, God don't like it (and I don't either),
God don't like it (and I don't either)
It's scandalous and a shame. bounce

"The Young Lions" by Boris Grebenshchikov

"What do the young lions need?
What do the young lions need?
When the whole world is ready to fall at their feet
and they don't have a thing to do right now."

Когда в городе станет темно,
Когда ветер дует с Невы,
Екатерина смотрит в окно,
За окном идут молодые львы.

Они не знают, что значит "зима",
Они танцуют, они свободны от наших потерь!
И им нечего делать с собой сейчас,
Они войдут, когда Екатерина откроет им дверь!

А что нужно молодым львам?
Что нужно молодым львам?
Когда весь мир готовится лечь к их ногам,
И им нечего делать сейчас!

Но я не скажу им ни слова,
Я не приму этот бой, потому что это не бой.
Все равно, все, что сделано нами, останется светлым,
Все равно, все, что было моим, возьмет себе кто-то
другой!

Так вот вкус наших побед,
Вот зелень нашей травы...
Екатерина смотрит в окно,
За окном продолжают идти
Молодые львы.

Isn't it a pity
-- music by Gershwin

[This one is cute and funny if sung by an 18-year-old, but very poignant if sung by a 60-year-old]

Why did I wander here and there and yonder,
Wasting precious time for no reason or rhyme?
Isn't it a pity? Isn't it a crime?
My journey's ended, everything is splendid;
Meeting you today
Has given me a wonderful idea -- here I stay.

It's a funny thing, I look at you,
I get a thrill I never knew.
Isn't it a pity we never met before?

Here we are at last, It's like a dream,
the two of us a perfect team.
Isn't it a pity we never met before?

Imagine all the lonely years we've wasted
You with the neighbors, I at silly labors
What joys untasted,
You reading Heine, me somewhere in China.

Let's forget the past; Let's both agree
that I'm for you and you're for me
And it's such a pity we never, never met before.

Imagine all the lonely year's we've wasted,
Fishing for salmon, losing at backgammon.
What joys untasted,
My nights were sour spent with Schopenhauer.

Let's forget the past; Let's both agree
that I'm for you and you're for me
And it's such a pity we never, never met before.

The Coffee Song

Way down among Brazilians
Coffee beans grow by the billions
So they’ve got to find those extra cups to fill
They’ve got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

You can’t get cherry soda
Cause they’ve gotta sell their quota
And the way things are I guess they never will
They’ve got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

No tea or tomato juice
You’ll see no potato juice
Cause the planters down in Santos
All say no, no, no

A politican’s daughter
Was accused of drinkin’ water
And was fined a great big fifty dollar bill
They’ve got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil

When Brazilian ham and eggs need savor
Coffee ketchup gives ‘em flavor
Coffee pickles way outsell the dill
Why they put coffee in their coffee in Brazil

You date a man and find out later
He smells like a percolator
His cologne was made right on the grill
Hey they could percolate the ocean in Brazil

Don’t ask for hot cocoa there
They’ll say you’ve gone loco there
But say caffeine or coffee bean and they’ll say ay ay ay

So you’ll add to the local color
Serve some coffee with a cruller
Dunkin doesn’t take alot of skill
They’ve got an awful lot of coffee
A great big pot of coffee
They’ve got an awful lot of coffee
In Brazil, Brazil, Brazil
Cafe ole
Yeah

Loudon Wainwright III

I can picture you there on that stool,
Drinking like a drunken fool,
Sitting there on your ass,
Muttering into your glass,
You're paying for your low life thrills
With wet quarters, soggy one dollar bills,
I know where you are,
I know where you are,
You're down drinking at the bar.

Dean Martin's on the juke box I bet,
Or maybe it's Tammy Wynnette,
The tear jerkers are jerking your tears,
Salt watering your whiskeys & your beers.
You got the Miller high life bouncing balls,
You got the Utica Club waterfalls,
I know where you are,
I know where you are,
You're down drinking at the bar.

Go ahead get drunk it's alright,
Lost weekend on a Tuesday night.
But I'm going to have to give you the score;
I'm not going to call you up on the telephone no more.
I'm sick & tired listening to that phone ring fifteen times,
I'm sick & tired of getting back my dime,
'Cuz I know where you are,
I know where you are,
And I know what you are,
You're a sot—that's what you are,
And I know where you are,
You're down drinking at the bar.

You'd Be Surprised
--sung by Eddie Cantor in 1919

Johnny was bashful and shy
Nobody understood why
Mary loved him
All the other girls passed him by
Everyone wanted to know
How she could pick such a beau
With a twinkle in her eye
She made this reply

He's not so good in a crowd but when you get him alone
You'd be surprised
He isn't much at a dance but then when he takes you home
You'd be surprised

He doesn't look like much of a lover
But don't judge a book by it's cover
He's got the face of an angel
But there's a devil in his eyes

He's such a delicate thing but when he starts in to squeeze
You'd be surprised
He doesn't look very strong but when you sit on his knees
You'd be surprised

At a party or at a ball
I've got to admit that he's nothing at all
But in an easy chair
You'd be surprised

Mary continued to praise
Johnny's remarkable ways
To the ladies
And you know advertising pays
Now Johnny's never alone
He has the busiest phone
Almost ev'ry other day
A new girl will say

He's not so good in the house but on a bench in the park
You'd be surprised
He isn't much in the light but when he gets in the dark
You'd be surprised

I know he looks so slow and so weary
But you don't know the half of it, dearie
He looks as cold as an Eskimo
But there's a fire in his eyes

He doesn't say very much but when he starts in to speak
You'd be surprised
He's not so good at the start but at the end of the week
You'd be surprised

On a streetcar or on a train
You'd think he was born without any brain
But in a taxicab
You'd be surprised

Lazy Bones
by Hoagy Carmichael

"Lazy bones, sleepin' in the sun
How you 'spect to get your day's work done?
Never get your day's work done
Sleepin' in the noonday sun"

"Lazy bones, sleepin' in the shade
How you 'spect to get your corn meal made?
Never get your corn meal made
Sleepin' in the evening shade"

"Lazy bones, dozin' through the day
How you 'spect to make a dime that way?
Never make a dime that way
Never heard a word I say"

Bing Crosby

They used to tell me I was building a dream, and so I followed the mob,
When there was earth to plow, or guns to bear, I was always there right on the job.
They used to tell me I was building a dream, with peace and glory ahead,
Why should I be standing in line, just waiting for bread?

Once I built a railroad, I made it run, made it race against time.
Once I built a railroad; now it's done. Brother, can you spare a dime?
Once I built a tower, up to the sun, brick, and rivet, and lime;
Once I built a tower, now it's done. Brother, can you spare a dime?

Once in khaki suits, gee we looked swell,
Full of that Yankee Doodly Dum,
Half a million boots went slogging through Hell,
And I was the kid with the drum!

Say, don't you remember, they called me Al; it was Al all the time.
Why don't you remember, I'm your pal? Buddy, can you spare a dime?

The Shaggs (Oh, to be a teenager again!)

Why Do I Feel?

Sometimes I feel funny
And bottled up inside
Then for some reason
I just start to cry

Sometimes I feel happy
And overflowing with joy
Then things change
And I start to worry

Why do I feel the way I feel?
Why do I do the things I do?
Why do I feel the way I feel?

Sometimes I worry over nothing at all
Sometimes I think life's just a ball
When life changes and turns the other way
I try to think of something gay

Why do I feel the way I feel?
Why do I do the things I do?
Why do I feel the way I feel?

There are times when I feel sad
There are times when I feel blue
What makes me feel this way the most
Is when I don't know why I do the things I do

Why do I do the things I do?
Why do I feel the way I feel?
Why do I do the things I do?

There are times when I feel sad
There are times when I feel blue
What makes me feel this way the most
Is when I don't know why I do the things I do

Why do I do the things I do?
Why do I feel the way I feel?
Why do I do the things I do?
Why do I do the things I do?

La Danse De Mardi Gras
Bee Deshotels (vocal),
Angelus Manuel (fiddle),
Savy Augustine (triangle) recorded 1956 in Mamou, La.

"Capitaine, capitaine, voyage ton flag.
Allons se mettre dessus le chemin.
Capitaine, capitaine, voyage ton flag.
Allons aller chez l’autre voisin.

Les Mardis Gras devient de tout partout,
Mais principalement de Grand Mamou.
Les Mardis Gras devient de tout partout,
Mais a l’entour du moyeu.

On vous invite tous pour le gros gombo,
Mais la-bas a la cuisine
On vous invite tous pour le gros gombo.
Mais la-bas chez john Vidrine."

1. Good King Wenceslas look'd out,
On the Feast of Stephen;
When the snow lay round about,
Deep, and crisp, and even:
Brightly shone the moon that night,
Though the frost was cruel,
When a poor man came in sight,
Gath'ring winter fuel.

2. "Hither page and stand by me,
If thou know'st it, telling,
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?"
"Sire, he lives a good league hence.
Underneath the mountain;
Right against the forest fence,
By Saint Agnes' fountain."

3. "Bring me flesh, and bring me wine,
Bring me pine-logs hither:
Thou and I will see him dine,
When we bear them thither."
Page and monarch forth they went,
Forth they went together;
Through the rude winds wild lament,
And the bitter weather.

4. "Sire, the night is darker now,
And the wind blows stronger;
Fails my heart, I know now how,
I can go no longer."
"Mark my footsteps, good my page;
Tread thou in them boldly;
Thou shalt find the winter's rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly."

5. In his master's steps he trod,
Where the snow lay dinted;
Heat was in the very sod
Which the saint had printed.
Therefore, Christian men, be sure,
Wealth or rank possessing,
Ye who now will bless the poor,
Shall yourselves find blessing.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and auld lang syne* ?

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my jo (or my dear),
for auld lang syne,
we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stowp !
and surely I’ll be mine !
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We twa hae run about the braes,
and pu’d the gowans fine ;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
sin auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We twa hae paidl’d i' the burn,
frae morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
sin auld lang syne.

CHORUS

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere !
and gie's a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll tak a right gude-willy waught,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

Randy Newman

Maybe I'm doing it wrong
Maybe I'm doing it wrong
It just don't move me
The way that it should
Maybe I'm doing it wrong

There ain't no book you can read
There ain't nobody to tell you
But I don't think I'm getting
What everybody's getting
Maybe I'm doing it wrong

Sometimes I throw off a good one
At least I think it is
No, I know it is
But I shouldn't be thinking at all
I shouldn't be thinking at all

Maybe I'm doing it wrong
Maybe I'm doing it wrong
It just don't move me
The way that it should
Maybe I'm doing it wrong

(From it's tacky thread)
Been listening to this again
Lyrics are simple but good.
My translation misses a lot:

Miro la vida pasar/ I look at life passing by

Mi indiferencia natural/ My natural indifference
Curtida en mil batallas contra la pereza/ hardened with a thousand battles against laziness
Borra del mapa todo amor/ erases all love from the map
Porque en mi vida todo acaba como empieza/ because in my life everything ends like it started

Y en plan travesti radical/ And in a transvestite radical way
Le doy la espalda a cualquier muestra de tristeza/ I turn my back on any sign of sadness
¿Melancolía o decepción?/ Melancholy or dissapointment?
¿Felicidad o tentación?/ Happiness or temptation?
Todo podría ir a peor.../ Everything could get worse

[Estribillo]/ Chorus
Mientras tanto miro la vida pasar/ Meanwhile I look at life passing by
Y no sabes cuanto me cuesta aceptar que no volverás/ and you don't know how hard is accepting you won't be back
Por el momento miro la vida pasar/ So far, I look at life passing by
Sin venir a cuento alguien te vuelve a nombrar/ Out of the blue someone names you again

Pasado el tiempo sigo igual/ Time passes, I stay the same
A veces pienso que he perdido la cabeza/ Sometimes I think I lost my head
Y algunos días sin razón/ and some days for no reason
Ya ni me late el corazón/ my heart doesn't even beat
En esta cárcel de rencor/ in this rancor prison

[Estribillo]/ Chorus

Siempre he sido fuerte/ I've always been strong
Aunque a veces he dudado/ But sometimes I doubt
Si la suerte no se ha reído de mí... / if luck didn't laugh at me...

[Estribillo]/ Chorus

- Alaska (Fangoria)

Maybe with the music you'll understand more:

1/ Ils ne sont plus
Les beaux jours de l'amitié

Tous mes amis 

Ont quitté les cotonniers

Ils sont partis 

Au pays du grand repos

J'entends leurs douces voix chanter 

Eho vieux Joe!

Refrain

Me voilà, Me voilà,
tout brisé par les travaux,

J'entends leurs douces voix chanter
Eho vieux Joe!



2/ Pourquoi pleurer, 

Quand mon cœur est toujours gai?

Pourquoi gémir? 

Ils ne peuvent revenir.

Depuis longtemps
Ils sont tous partis là-haut:

J'entends leurs douces voix chanter


Eho vieux Joe!

3/ Où sont-ils donc, 

Les amis qu'on aimait tant?

Et ces enfants 

Qu'on berçait si doucement?

Ils sont heureux! 

Près deux je serai bientôt.

J'entends leurs douces voix chanter
Eho vieux Joe!

Sir Walter enjoying his damsel one night,
He tickled and pleased her to so great a delight.
That she could not contain t’wards the end of the matter,
But in rapture cried out ‘Oh sweet Sir Walter,

Oh sweet Sir Walter, Oh sweet Sir Walter,
Oh sweet Sir, sweet Sir Walter,
Oh switzer watzer Oh switzer watzer
switter swatter switter swatter switter swatter ...’

Sueño con serpientes / I dream of snakes

Sueño con serpientes, con serpientes de mar, / I dream of snakes, sea snakes,
con cierto mar, ay, de serpientes sueño yo. / of some sea, ay, sea of snakes.
Largas, transparentes, y en sus barrigas llevan / Long and transparent, in their bellies they carry
lo que puedan arrebatarle al amor. / all that snatched from love.

Oh, la mato y aparece una mayor. / Oh, I kill it and a bigger one appears
Oh, con mucho más infierno en digestión. / Oh, with much more hell in its digestion

No quepo en su boca. Me trata de tragar / I don't fit in its mouth. It tries to swallow me
pero se atora con un trébol de mi sien. / but it chokes on a clover from my temple.
Creo que está loca. Le doy de masticar / I believe it's mad. I give it a dove to chew
una paloma y la enveneno de mi bien. / and gets poisoned with my good

Ésta al fin me engulle, y mientras por su esófago / This one in the end bolts me. While
paseo, voy pensando en qué vendrá. / its esophagus I pass, I wonder what's to come
Pero se destruye cuando llego a su estómago / but it is destroyed when by the stomach
y planteo con un verso una verdad. / truth arises from my verse

Young Man's Blues
-- Mose Allison

Oh well a young man ain't got nothin' in the world these days
I said a young man ain't got nothin' in the world these days

You know in the old days
When a young man was a strong man
All the people they'd step back
When a young man walked by

But you know nowadays
It's the old man,
He's got all the money
And a young man ain't got nothin' in the world these days
I said nothing

Everybody knows that a young man ain't got nothin'
Everybody!
Everybody knows that a young man ain't got nothin'
He got nothin'
Nothin'

Take it easy on the young man
They ain't got nothin' in the world these days
I said they ain't got nothin'!
They got sweet fuck-all!

A Miner's Life
sung by Siwsann George

You’ve been docked and docked again boys,
You’ve been loading two for one.
What have you to show for working,
Since your mining days begun?

Worn-out boots and worn-out miners,
Lungs of stone and children pale,
Keep your hand upon your wages,
And your eyes upon the scale.

Union miners, stand together,
Do not heed the owners’ tale.
Keep your hand upon your wages,
And your eyes upon the scale.

Girlfriend

Under caresses of an ivy
Plaid I recalled yesterday's dream.
Whose victory? Who's been conquered?
What has it been?

Rethinking everything once more,
Torturing myself once again.
In this, for which no word I know,
Had love ever been?

Who was the hunter? Who - the hunted?
All is reversed as if by Satan
What did the loudly purring Siberian
Cat, understand?

In this self-willing one another
Who in whose hand was but a ball?
Whose heart flew - yours or mine,
Do you recall?

And still again - what has it been too?
What do I want, what do I regret?
And I don't know: Did I win? Did somebody
Vanquish me?

Marina Tsvetaeva
