LOVE : BUMMER IN THE SUMMER [1967]

Ένα από τα αγαπημένα μου άλμπουμ όλων των εποχών, ανεξαρτήτως μουσικού είδους, είναι το Forever Changes, το άλμπουμ που οι Love του Arthur Lee κυκλοφόρησαν το 1967. Ακούμε ένα από τα κλασικά τραγουδια του, πρόταση του stcigar.
Forever Changes, released in 1967 by Arthur Lee’s Love in 1967, is one of my favorite albums of all times, regardless of music genre. We hear one of the classic songs on this album, a stcigar’s proposal.

Well I remember when you used to look so good
And I did everything that I possibly could for you
We used to ride around all over town
But they’re puttin’ you down for bein’ around with me
But you can go ahead if you want to
‘Cause I ain’t got no papers on you
In the middle of the summer I had a job bein’ a plumber
Just to pass till the fall it was you I want to ball all day
We were walkin’ along, honey, hand in hand
I’m a-thinkin’ of you, mama, when you’re thinkin’ of another man
But you can go ahead if you want to
‘Cause I ain’t got no papers on you
No, I don’t I ain’t got no papers on myself
All alone on the bone when I didn’t have a home
When I saw the way I was and I knew where I was supposed to be
I was twitchin’ so I turned and it’s really hard to learn
That everyone I saw was just another part of me
But you can go ahead if you want to
‘Cause nobody’s got no papers on you
No, babe, it’s just a falsehood

      …but not exactly into “flower power” – too clever for that!

        Yeah, flower power hasn’t aged well.

    That was fun! Indicative of the era, but still on its own terms. Thank you, I’d never heard this!
