STEELY DAN : KINGS [1972]

Ένα εξαιρετικό [μουσικά και στιχουργικά] τραγούδι του Donald Fagen από το κλασικό άλμπουμ – ντεμπούτο των Steely Dan, Can’t Buy A Thrill του 1972 / A splendid song [musically and lyrically] by Donald Fagen, from the classic Steely Dan’s debut album Can’t Buy A Thrill released in 1972.

Now they lay his body down
Sad old men who run this town
I still recall the way
He led the charge and saved the day
Blue blood and rain
I can hear the bugle playin’
We seen the last of Good King Richard
Ring out the past his name lives on
Roll out the bones and raise up your pitcher
Raise up your glass to Good King John
While he plundered far and wide
All his starving children cried
And though we sung his fame
We all went hungry just the same
He meant to shine
To the end of the line
We seen the last of Good King Richard
Ring out the past his name lives on
Roll out the bones and raise up your pitcher
Raise up your glass to Good King John
