Curtis Lee Mayfield (June 3, 1942 – December 26, 1999) was an American soul, R&B, and funk singer, songwriter, and record producer best known for his anthemic music with The Impressions and composing the soundtrack to the blaxploitation film Super Fly. From these works and others, he was highly regarded as a pioneer of funk and of politically conscious African-American music. He was also a multi-instrumentalist who played the guitar, bass, piano, saxophone, and drums.

Curtis Mayfield - Move On Up



Hush now child,
and don't you cry
Your folks might understand you
by and by
Move on up
towards your destination
Though you may find
from time to time
complication

Bite your lip
and take the trip
Though there may be
wet road ahead
And you cannot slip
Just move on up
for peace you will find
Into the steeple
of beautiful people
Where there's only one kind

So hush now child
and don't you cry
Your folks might understand you
by and by
Move on up
and keep on wishing
Remember your dream
is your only scheme
So keep on pushing
Take nothing less
than the second best
Do not obey
you must keep your say
You can pass the test

Just move on up
to a greater day
With just a little faith if you put your mind to it you can surely do it

Just move on up
Move on up
But move on up
Oh child, just move on up
But move on up
Move on up

Μα, υπάρχουν μεγάλα τρανσλατουμόπαιδα; Όλα μικρά παιδάκια δεν είμαστε; :-)

Από τους βασικούς εκπρόσωπους της funk o Curtis Mayfield. Σ' ευχαριστώ που μας το αφιέρωσες, Natassa!
