IGGY POP : I WANNA LIVE [1996]

Σούπερ ακμαίος, ένα χρόνο πριν απ’ την έναρξη της 6ης δεκαετίας του [49 χρόνων] ο Iggy Pop σε ένα τραγούδι από το άλμπουμ του “Naughty Little Doggy”.
Super blooming, one year before the beginning of his 6th decade [49 years old]
Iggy Pop on a song from his “Naughty Little Doggy” album.

I see my future shuffling
A shakey step at a time
I got no choice but careful
Thank God, I’ve done my crime
The tools I see on TV
Can’t stand it when they fake
A prick’s a prick at any age
Why give one a break?

I wanna live
A little bit longer
I wanna live
A little bit longer now
I wanna live
A little bit longer
I wanna live, live, live, live, live
The soul is in the eyeball
For anyone to see
I’m better than a Pepsi
I’m cooler than MTV
I’m hotter than California
I’m cheaper than a gram
I’m deeper than the shit I’m in
An’ I don’t really give a damn
I wanna live
A little bit longer
I wanna live
A little bit longer now
I wanna live
A little bit longer
I wanna live, live, live, live, live
Step up, it’s fight time
Kick, scratch and bite time
Ain’t talking ’bout no more fun
But that don’t bother my bad ass none
I wanna live
A little bit longer now
I wanna live
Just a little bit longer
I want to live, live, live, live, live (a little bit longer now)
I wanna live, live, live, live, live (just a little bit longer now)
I wanna live, live, live, live, live (just a little bit longer now)
I wanna live, live, live, live, live (just a little bit longer now)
I wanna live, live, live, live, live (just a little bit longer now)
I wanna live, live, live, live, live (just a little bit longer now)

    Great song. You have to love Iggy. Did you get to listen to the parody we did of Iggy’s “Candy” called “Kitty”? https://wp.me/p1yQyy-5CE

    Iggy Pop certainly is a fascinating character.

      He was also a fascinating musician from the late ’60s to the late ’70s. Since then, he’s the epitomy of what we call “cult of personality” [“the godfather of punk” and blalabla]. A brilliant guy for sure, though. When he was asked, some years ago, why he keeps on recording and touring he answered this : people like stuff like the one I do. And, as far as I know, I’m still the best Iggy Pop impersonator in the business”.
