Golden Brown
from the album "La Folie" (1981)

Golden brown texture like sun
Lays me down with my mind she runs
Throughout the night
No need to fight
Never a frown with golden brown

Every time just like the last
On her ship tied to the mast
To distant lands
Takes both my hands
Never a frown with golden brown

Golden brown finer temptress
Through the ages she's heading west
From far away
Stays for a day
Never a frown with golden brown

(Never a frown) Never a frown (never a frown)
(Never a frown) With golden brown (with golden brown)x4


Golden Brown
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Golden Brown" is a waltzing, harpsichord-led ballad in a 6/8 and 7/8 time signature from The Stranglers. (The instrumental bridges add an extra beat in every other measure, effectively producing a 13/8 time signature), with the 7 inch record featuring B-side "Love 30".

The song featured on the group's album La Folie, which was released in November 1981. "Golden Brown" was released as a single in early 1982 and reached number two in the official UK singles chart in February of that year, behind "Town Called Malice" by The Jam. The song was accompanied with a video.

The highly conservative Radio Two, at that time an MOR station, decided to make the record the single of the week, an apparently unlikely step considering the band was almost as notorious as The Sex Pistols only a few short years before.

The band claimed that the song's lyrics were akin to an aural Rorschach test and that people only heard in it what they wanted to hear, although this did not prevent persistent allegations that the lyrics were about heroin. The success of this song commercially is probably the single factor that secured The Stranglers their continuing life in pop mainstream for the remainder of the 1980s.


However, even as of 2004, the Irish Today FM radio station will always play this track as a substitute for The Stranglers' "Skin Deep", which is more obviously about heroin usage (lead singer Hugh Cornwell had been jailed for two months for heroin possession in 1980). This is done for requests and even in retro chart rundowns.

This song is also on the soundtracks of the movies Snatch, and He Died With A Felafel In His Hand.

In 2005 Oasis used the main melody to Golden Brown for their song Part of the Queue which featured on their album Don't Believe the Truth.

Brown Sugar


Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields,
Sold in a market down in new orleans.
Scarred old slaver know hes doin alright.
Hear him whip the women just around midnight.
Ah brown sugar how come you taste so good
(a-ha) brown sugar, just like a young girl should
A-huh.

Drums beating, cold Εnglish blood runs hot,
Lady of the house wondrin where its gonna stop.
House boy knows that hes doin alright.
You should have heard him just around midnight.
Ah brown sugar how come you taste so good
(a-ha) brown sugar, just like a black girl should
A-huh.

I bet your mama was a tent show queen, and all her boy
Friends were sweet sixteen.

You should have heard me just around midnight.

Ah brown sugar how come you taste so good
(a-ha) brown sugar, just like a young girl should.

I said yeah, I said yeah, I said yeah, I said
Oh just like a, just like a black girl should.

I said yeah, I said yeah, I said yeah, I said
Oh just like, just like a black girl should.

Λοιπόν...
Μια και πιάσαμε τα Sugar...

[Με επηρεάζεις αρνητικά, νομίζω.
Έτσι και ρίξω το kombucha mushroom... θα πέσει ξύλο.
Δεν με τρελαίνει, αλλά το Lonely Day είναι σαφώς εξαιρετικό.]

Cigaro Lyrics

My cock is much bigger than yours,
My cock can walk right through the door
With a feeling so pure..
It's got you screaming back for more.

Cool, in denial
We're the cruel regulators smoking
CIGARO CIGARO CIGAR
Cool, in denial
We're the cruel regulators smoking
CIGARO CIGARO CIGAR

My shit stinks much better than yours,
My shit stinks right down through the floor.
With a feeling so pure,
It's got you coming back for more.

Cool, in denial
We're the cruel regulators smoking
CIGARO CIGARO CIGAR
Cool, in denial
We're the cruel regulators smoking
CIGARO CIGARO CIGAR
Cool, in denial
We're the cruel regulators smoking
CIGARO CIGARO CIGAR
Cool, in denial
We're the cruel regulators smoking
CIGARO CIGARO CIGAR

Can't you see that I love my cock?
Can't you see that you love my cock?
Can't you see that we love my cock?

We're the regulators that de-regulate
We're the animators that de-animate
We're the propagators of all genocide
Burning through the world's resources, then we turn and hide

Cool, in denial
We're the cruel regulators smoking
CIGARO CIGARO CIGAR
Cool, in denial
We're the cruel regulators smoking
CIGARO CIGARO CIGAR

We're the regulators that de-regulate
We're the animators that de-animate

Cool, in denial
We're the cruel regulators smoking
CIGARO CIGARO CIGAR
Cool, in denial
We're the cruel regulators smoking
CIGARO CIGARO CIGAR

My cock is much bigger than yours,
My cock can walk right through the door
With a feeling so pure..
It's got you screaming back for more!

As previously mentioned...
you're SO -A- Dead.
:-)


To "Lonely Day" , μια και ... as ballads go, I love it and some days wish I could sing it...
:-))
;-))
LONELY DAY

Such a lonely day
And it's mine
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
Should be banned
It's a day that I can't stand

The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
Shouldn't exist
It's a day that I'll never miss

Such a lonely day
And it's mine
The most loneliest day of my life

And if you go
I wanna go with you
And if you die
I wanna die with you

Take your hand
And walk away

The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
And it's mine
It's a day that I'm glad I survived


Για άλλα, I simply lack the guts... or
 I simply don't have the inclination
.
Take your pick.

Also, take this:

VICINITY OF OBSCENITY
Banana banana banana terracotta
Banana terracotta terracotta pie

Is there a perfect way of holding you baby?
Vicinity of obscenity in your eyes

Do we all learn defeat
From the whores with bad feet
Beat the meat, treat the feet
To the sweet milky seat

...and again, just for the music, or perhaps the lyrics and the music...

DREAMING
For today we will take the body parts and put them on the wall

For treated indigenously, digenously
Human right is private blue chip, pry

We're the prophetic generation of bottled water, bottled water
Causing poor populations to die, to die, to die (For treated
indigenously, digenously) (Human right is private blue chip, pry)

You, you went beyond and you lost it all Why did you go there From
beyond you saw it all why did you

We lost consumer confidence in casual karma, casual karma
Confetti, camouflage, camouflage, the flage, the flage
(For treated indigenously, digenously)
(Human right is private blue chip, pry)

We're the prophetic generation of bottled water, bottled water
Causing poor populations to die, to die, to die

(For treated indigenously, digenously)
(Human right is private blue chip, pry)

You, you went beyond and you lost it all Why did you go there From
beyond you saw it all why did you go there

She lost her mind
Someone kicked her into the back of the line

She lost her head
When they called and they said that they thought he was dead

Dreaming of screaming
Someone kick me out of my mind
I hate these thoughts I can't deny
Dreaming of screaming
Someone kick me out of my mind
I hate these thoughts I can't de--

We lost consumer confidence in casual karma, casual karma

Someone kick me out of my mind
I hate these thoughts I can't deny

You will take the body parts and put them up on the wall And bring the
dark disaster

This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song Lyrics


There's nothing wrong with me
There's something wrong with you
There's something wrong with me
I hope your stepson doesn't eat the fish
When we're crying for our next fix

There's nothing wrong with me
There's something wrong with you
There's something wrong with me
I hope your stepson doesn't eat the fish
When we're crying for our next fix

Killers never hurt feelings
Killers never hurt feelings
Killers never hurt feelings

Gonorrhea gorgonzola
Gonorrhea gorgonzola
Single files of clean feedings

I can't see your souls through through your eyes
The crying walls of sliding architecture
Kidnapped by the likes of pure conjecture
Upholstery loving men all dwelling in the wells
Kidnapped by the likes of pure conjecture

Killers never hurt feelings
Killers never hurt feelings
Killers never hurt feelings

Gonorrhea gorgonzola
Gonorrhea gorgonzola
Single files of clean feedings

There's nothing wrong with me
There's something wrong with you
Wrong with you and I
When we're crying for our next fix

There's nothing wrong with me
There's something wrong with you
Wrong with you and I
When we're crying for our next fix

Killers never hurt feelings
Killers never hurt feelings
Killers never hurt feelings

Gonorrhea gorgonzola
Gonorrhea gorgonzola
Single files of clean feedings
Single files of clean feedings

There's nothing wrong with me
There's something wrong with you
There's something wrong with me
I hope your stepson doesn't eat the fish
There's nothing wrong with me
There's something wrong with you

There's nothing wrong with me
There's something wrong with you
There's something wrong with me
I hope your stepson doesn't eat the fish
There's nothing wrong with me
There's something wrong with you

Don't eat the fish

O τίτλος:
This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song

ταιριάζει (κομματάκι) με αυτό:


SHE'S LIKE HEROIN
She's like heroin
Sipping through a little glass
I'm looking for some help
I need someone to save her ass

Chinese tricks in rooms
With ghosts of hooker girlie dudes
Me and heroin maybe we can make some cash Selling ass

Selling ass for heroin
Ass
Selling ass for heroin
Ass
Selling ass for heroin
Ass
Selling ass for heroin

She wants nothing more
But to be a little whore
He wants nothing less
But to wear a little dress

She's like heroin
Sipping through a little glass
I'm looking for some help
I need someone to make some cash Selling ass

Selling ass for heroin
Ass
Selling ass for heroin
Ass
Selling ass for heroin


She's like heroin
Sipping through a little glass
I'm looking for some help
I need someone to save her ass

She wants nothing more
But to be a little whore
He wants nothing less
But to wear a little dress

She's like heroin
Sipping through a little glass
I'm looking for some help
I need someone to save her ass

Chinese tricks in rooms
With ghosts of hooker girlie dudes
Me and heroin maybe we can make some cash

She's like heroin
Sipping through a little glass
I'm looking for some help
I need someone to save my ass

Selling ass for heroin
Ass


...το οποίο -σε κάποια φάση- είχα σκεφτεί να ρίξω κάτω από τo... The Whores Hustle And The Hustlers Whore...΄-)
Καληνύχτα.
