Genesis 1973

Es scheint so, daß heute der Tag der „alten Buchstaben und Töne“ ist.

Wenn ich ein wenig mit den Buchstaben würfel und spiele…
„Selling Germany by the Pound“ oder „Kannst du mir sagen, wo mein Land liegt…“

Can you tell me?

Viel Spaß und Freunde an und mit den Tönen, den Worten, welche 45 Jahre jung sind.
Genesis, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight, Album: Selling England by the Pound

 

Alles Liebe,
Raffa.

„Can you tell me where my country lies?“
Said the uni faun to his true love’s eyes
„It lies with me!“ cried the Queen of Maybe
For her merchandise, he traded in his prize
„Paper late!“ cried a voice in the crowd
„Old man dies!“ The note he left was signed ‚Old Father Thames‘
It seems he’s drowned
Selling england by the pound
Citizens of Hope & Glory,
Time goes by, it’s „the time of your life“
Easy now, sit you down
Chewing through your Wimpey dreams,
They eat without a sound
Digesting England by the pound
Young man says „you are what you eat“ eat well
Old man says „you are what you wear“ wear well
You know what you are, you don’t give a damn
Bursting your belt that is your homemade sham
The Captain leads his dance right on through the night
Join the dance
Follow on! Till the Grail sun sets in the mould
Follow on! Till the gold is cold
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the Green Shield stamp and shout
There’s a fat old lady outside the saloon
laying out the credit cards she plays Fortune
The deck is uneven right from the start
And all of their hands are playing apart
The Captain leads his dance right on through the night
Join the dance
Follow on! A round table talking down we go
You’re the show
Off we go with, you play the hobbyhorse,
I’ll play the fool
We’ll tease the bull
Ringing round & loud, loud & round
Follow on! With a twist of the world we go
Follow on! Till the gold is cold
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the Green Shield stamp and shout
