Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band – Veteran’s Day Poppy

Captain Beefheartin klassikkoalbumin päättävä raita ei välttämättä lainkaan kerro huumeista. Äiti on menettänyt poikansa ja ei pääse pilveen?!? En ihan välttämättä pääse tästä kärryille.

“I cry but I can’t buy
Your Veteran’s Day poppy
It don’t get me high
It can only make me cry
It can never grow another
Son like the one who warmed me my days
After rain and warmed my breath
My life’s blood
Screamin’ empty she crys
It don’t get me high
It can only make me cry
Your Veteran’s Day poppy”

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band – Ah Feel Like Ahcid

“Got (a letter) up this morning how do you reckon it read?
Red blue and green whoooo all through my head
Licked the stamps saw a movie dropped the stamp
I ain’t got no blues no more I said
Put me up thinkin’ a postman’s groovy
I ain’t I ain’t got the blues no more I said………

Well send me with a letter lord drop me with a telegram I said
My baby walked just like she did
Walking on hard-boiled eggs with a…she can steal em….
I ain’t blue o more I said
Lord one jumped up lord the other one quackin’
Yeah she got those great big drums sticking out Whoooo
Big chicken legs beat when she walks flappin’ down the street where I live”

Eiköhän tässä jotain hapokasta ole nappailtu.
