CAPTAIN BEEFHEART : AUTUMN’S CHILD [SONGS OF CHILDHOOD NOSTALGIA]

Ο Κάπταιν αναπολεί τον εφηβικό του έρωτα…
Τραγούδι από το πρώτο του άλμπουμ,
Safe As Milk, 1967

The Captain reminisces about his teenage love…
A song from his first album,
Safe As Milk, 1967

Go back ten years ago sunbeams dancin’ round
Go back ten years ago sunbeams dancin’ down
Autumn’s child Autumn child
Autumn’s child got a loophole round her finger
Halo rings her head
Cornhusk hair makes me linger
Her cat’s stare meets my dare
A man’s chair greets my stare
Gonna be my wife she sang she said
Ooh, she’s gonna be my wife
Gonna start my heart she said
(I’m still not sure if this last phrase is correct…”starch my life?!)
(start or spark my heart?)
Go back ten years ago sunbeams in her hair
Go back ten years ago sunbeams fill the air
I’ll just spin, be nimble
Level down and tremble
Fish pond streak of light
Found the child I had to find
Apple shine share together
Got the time to make her mine
Fish pond streaks?love kind
Found the child I had to find…
