Angelique Kidjo trifft Talking Heads – Born Under Punches

Take a look at these hands
Take a look at these hands
The hand speaks, the hand of a government man
Well I’m a tumbler born under punches, I’m so thin

All I want is to breathe
(I’m too thin)
Won’t you breathe with me?
Find a little space, so we move in-between
(In-between it)
And keep one step ahead, of yourself

Don’t you miss it, don’t you miss it
Some of you people just about missed it
Last time to make plans
And I’m a tumbler, I’m a government man

Never seen anything like that before
Falling bodies tumble ‚cross the floor
(Well I’m a tumbler)
When you get to where you wanna be
(Thank you! Thank you!)
When you get to where you wanna be
(Well, don’t even mention it)

Oh, take a look at these hands, they’re passing in-between us
Take a look at these hands
Take a look at these hands, you don’t have to mention it
No thanks, I’m a government man

And the heat goes on and the heat goes on
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on
And the heat goes on where the hand has been
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on

And the heat goes on
(I got time)
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on
And the heat goes on, where the hand has been
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on

I’m not a drowning man
And I’m not a burning building! I’m a tumbler
Drowning cannot hurt a man
Fire cannot hurt a man, not the government man

All I want is to breathe
(Thank you, thank you)
Won’t you breathe with me?
Find a little space so we move in-between
(I’m so thin)
And keep one step ahead of yourself
(I’m catching up with myself)

All I want is to breathe
Won’t you breathe with me?
(Hands of a government man)
Find a little space so we move in-between
And keep one step ahead of yourself
(Don’t you miss it! Don’t you miss it!)

All I want is to breathe
Won’t you breathe with me?

The Diamond Family Archive – A Change Is Gonna Come

http://thediamondfamilyarchive.blogspot.de/

was born by the river in a little tent
Oh and just like the river
I’ve been running ever since
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

It’s been too hard living but I’m afraid to die
‚Cause I don’t know what’s up there beyond the sky
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

I go to the movie and I go downtown
Somebody keep telling me, „Don’t hang around“
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

I go to the movie
And I go downtown
Somebody keep telling me don’t hang around
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

Then I go to my brother
And I say, „Brother, help me please“
But he winds up knockin‘ me
Back down on my knees

Oh there been times that I thought I couldn’t last for long
But now I think I’m able to carry on
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

Some people say a man is made out of mud
A poor man’s made out of muscle and blood
Muscle and blood and skin and bones
A mind that’s a-weak and a back that’s strong

You load sixteen tons, what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don’t you call me ‚cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store

I was born one mornin‘ when the sun didn’t shine
I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
And the straw boss said „Well, a-bless my soul“

You load sixteen tons, what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don’t you call me ‚cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store

I was born one mornin‘, it was drizzlin‘ rain
Fightin‘ and trouble are my middle name
Raised in the Canebrake by an old mama lion
Ain’t no a high-toned woman make me walk the line

You load sixteen tons, what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don’t you call me ‚cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store

If you see me comin‘, better step aside
A lot of men didn’t, and a lot of men died
With one fist of iron, and the other of steel
If the right one don’t get you then the left one will

You load sixteen tons, what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don’t you call me ‚cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store


Buddy Holly – Everyday

Everyday it’s a gettin‘ closer
Goin‘ faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A hey, a hey hey

Everyday it’s a gettin‘ faster
Everyone says go ahead and ask her
Love like yours will surely come my way
A hey, a hey hey

Everyday seems a little longer
Every way love’s a little stronger
Come what may do you ever long for
True love from me

Everyday it’s a gettin‘ closer
Goin‘ faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A hey, a hey hey

Everyday seems a little longer
Every way love’s a little stronger
Come what may do you ever long for
True love from me
Everyday it’s a gettin‘ closer
Goin‘ faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A hey, a hey hey

Love like yours will surely come my way


Katzenjammer meet Genesis – Land of Confusion

I must have dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
But I can hear the marching feet
They’re moving into the street

Now, did you read the news today?
They say the danger has gone away
But I can see the fire’s still alight
They’re burning into the night

There’s too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there’s not much love to go around
Can’t you see this is a land of confusion?

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth living in

Oh, superman, where are you now?
When everything’s gone wrong somehow?
The men of steel, these men of power
Are losing control by the hour

This is the time, this is the place
So we look for the future
But there’s not much love to go around
Tell me why this is a land of confusion

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth living in

I remember long ago
When the sun was shining
And all the stars were bright all through the night
In the wake of this madness, as I held you tight
So long ago

I won’t be coming home tonight
My generation will put it right
We’re not just making promises
That we know we’ll never keep

There’s too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there’s not much love to go round
Can’t you see this is a land of confusion?

Now, this is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for

This is the world we live in
And these are the names we’re given
Stand up and let’s start showing
Just where our lives are going to


Lulu and the Lampshades – Cups (You’re Gonna Miss Me)

I’ve got my ticket for long way around
Two bottles of whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
And I’m leaving tomorrow, what do you say?

When I’m gone, when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me everywhere
And I know you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

I’ve got my ticket for the long way around
The one with the prettiest view
It’s got mountains, it’s got rivers
It’s got sights to give you shivers
But it sure would be prettier with you

When I’m gone, when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me everywhere
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

When I’m gone, when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me by my talk
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

live 😉
