James Taylor – A Junkie’s Lament

“Ricky’s been kicking the gong
Lickety split didn’t take too long
A junkie’s sick
A monkey’s strong
That’s what’s wrong

Well, I guess he’s been messing around downtown
So sad to see the man losing ground
Winding down behind closed doors
On all fours”

Eiköhän tässä ole kyse huumeiden käytöstä ja addiktiosta.

  1. Hitto, että on hieno ensmäinen säkeistö! Muutenkin ralli on aika rautaa… laitankin tähän loputkin sanoista:

    “Mama, don’t you call him my name
    He can’t hear you anymore
    And even if he seems the same to you
    That’s a stranger to your door
    Ask him what’s he come here for

    Oh my God, a monkey can move a man
    Send him to hell
    And home again
    With an empty hand in the afternoon
    Shooting for the moon

    It’s halfway sick
    And it’s halfway stoned
    He’d sure like to kick
    But it’s too far gone
    They wind him down with the methadone
    He’s all on his own

    But baby, don’t you throw your love away
    I hate to seem unkind
    It’s only that I understand the man
    That the monkey can leave behind
    I used to think he was a friend of mine”
