Rodriguez – Sugar Man

Amerikkalaisen folk-laulajan, Rodriguezin, Sugar Manista tuli pieni hitti esimerkiksi Australiassa, vaikkakin Amerikassa hän on jäänyt hyvinkin tuntemattomaksi.

“Sugar man, won’t you hurry
‘cos i’m tired of these scenes
For a blue coin won’t you bring back
All those colors to my dreams.

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man met a false friend
On a lonely dusty road
Lost my heart when i found it
It had turned to dead black coal

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man you’re the answer
That makes my questions disappear
Sugar man ‘cos i’m weary
Of those double games l hear

Sugar man, won’t you hurry
‘cos i’m tired of these scenes
For a blue coin won’t you bring back
All those colors to my dreams.

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man met a false friend
On a lonely dusty road
Lost my heart when i found it
It had turned to dead black coal

Silver magic ships you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet mary jane

Sugar man you’re the answer
That makes my questions disappear”

Hurriganes – Mary Jane

Richard Stanley tuotti Hurriganesin klassikkoalbumin Roadrunner ja jo tuolle albumille kyhäsi muutaman biisin. Tuota albumia seurannut Crazy Days olikin sitten lähes tyystin Stanleyn sanoittama. Näin myös tämä albumin kakkosraita on hänen käsialaansa. Ja sanathan eivät jätä juurikaan tulkinnanvaraa mistä lauletaan.

“I´m gonna take a plane to Acapulco
Blow some doe on sweet time smoke vacation
Flying high babe down to Acapulco
Don´t expect to se me round a while

Mary Jane , Mary Jane , i´m coming
Mary Jane , Mary Jane , hold on now
Mary Jane , J-J-J-J-Jane , i´m flying
Mary , Mary Take me to the moon

Hot rod stands my pilot cross the border
Mexicana fuzz don´t ever see his wings
Happy landings high up in the mountain
Up that peak you really feel a king

Mary Jane , Mary Jane , i´m coming
Mary Jane , Mary Jane , hold on now
Mary Jane , J-J-J-J-Jane , i´m flying
Mary , Mary take me to the moon

I´m gonna take a plane to Acapulco
Blow some doe on sweet time smoke vacation
Flying high baby down to Acapulco
Don´t expect to see me around a while

Mary Jane , Mary Jane , i´m coming
Mary Jane , Mary Jane , hold on now
Mary Jane , J-J-J-J-Jane , i´m flying
Mary , Mary , take me to the moon”

Just Jack – Writer’s Block

“Writer’s Block”

I get this writer’s block, it comes as quite a shock,
And now i’m stuck between a hard place and the biggest rock,
In my own head consumed. I sit back in my room,
Its like the tapestries of life get tangled in the loom,
I’m like a butterfly, caught in a hurricane,
My pulse is quickening as my heart plays a new refrain

Im lovin’ Mary Jane, flyin’ with Lois Lane,
On board a bullet train
Don’t know yet if i’m glad i came
Don’t know yet if i’m glad i came
Don’t know yet if i’m glad i came
Don’t know yet if i’m glad i came

Sometimes at night i think too much,
About life and love and music and stuff

I’m livin’ in the past,
My clocks an hour fast,
Should really go and make a coffee but i can’t be arsed,
I’ve lost my mobile phone,
You’ll have to call my home,
On second thoughts just leave a message when you hear the tone,
My grimy windows show the early morning glow,
Another day, another dollar in my one man show,

Im lovin’ Mary Jane, flyin’ with Lois Lane,
On board a bullet train
Don’t know yet if i’m glad i came
Don’t know yet if i’m glad i came
Don’t know yet if i’m glad i came
Don’t know yet if i’m glad i came

I fell out with Mary Jane, I don’t speak to Lois Lane and i missed that bullet train
But now i know i’m glad i-
I fell out with Mary Jane, I don’t speak to Lois Lane and i missed that bullet train
But now i know i’m glad i-
I fell out with Mary Jane, I don’t speak to Lois Lane and i missed that bullet train
But now i know i’m glad i-
I fell out with Mary Jane, I don’t speak to Lois Lane and i missed that bullet train
But now i know i’m glad i came
But now i know i’m glad i came
But now i know i’m glad i came
