Cream – Strange Brew

Kovemmatkaan huumeet eivät olleet vieraita 60-luvulla toimineen Creamin jäsenille. Strange Brewn onkin sanottu viittaavan kokaiiniin. Tuntuisi ihan uskottavalta.

“Strange brew, kill what’s inside of you.

She’s a witch of trouble in electric blue,
In her own mad mind she’s in love with you.
With you.
Now what you gonna do?
Strange brew, kill what’s inside of you.

She’s some kind of demon messing in the glue.
If you don’t watch out it’ll stick to you.
To you.
What kind of fool are you?
Strange brew, kill what’s inside of you.

On a boat in the middle of a raging sea,
She would make a scene for it all to be
Ignored.
And wouldn’t you be bored?
Strange brew, kill what’s inside of you.

Strange brew, strange brew, strange brew, strange brew.
Strange brew, kill what’s inside of you”

Small Faces – Itchycoo Park

Small Facesin kappale on sanoituksiltaan hyvin “Skippaa koulu and get stoned” -tyyppinen julistus, joka istui julkaisuhetkellään 1967 hyvin ajan henkeen.

“Over Bridges of Sighs
To rest my eyes in shades of green

Under Dreaming Spires
To Itchycoo Park, that’s where I’ve been

What did you do there? – I got high
What did you feel there? – Well I cried
But why the tears there? – I’ll tell you why – yyyyy
It’s all too beautiful, It’s all too beautiful
It’s all too beautiful, It’s all too beautiful

I feel inclined to blow my mind
Get hung up, feed the ducks with a bun
They all come out to groove about
Be nice and have fun in the sun
I’ll tell you what I’ll do – What will you do?

I’d like to go there now with you
You can miss out school – Won’t that be cool
Why go to learn the words of fools?

What will we do there? – We’ll get high
What will we touch there? – We’ll touch the sky
But why the tears there? I’ll tell you why
It’s all too beautiful, It’s all too beautiful
It’s all too beautiful, It’s all too beautiful

I feel inclined to blow my mind
Get hung up, feed the ducks with a bun
They all come out to groove about
Be nice and have fun in the sun
It’s all too beautiful, It’s all too beautiful
It’s all too beautiful, It’s all too beautiful!

The Rolling Stones – Something Happened to Me Yesterday

Ensimmäinen Rollareitten biisi, jolla Keith laulaa liidit. Kertoja on käynyt tripillä, eikä oikein tiedä kuinka siihen tulisi suhtautua.

“Something happened to me yesterday
Something I can’t speak of right away
Something happened to me
Something oh so groovy
Something happened to me yesterday

He don’t know if it’s right or wrong
Maybe he should tell someone
He’s not sure just what it was
Or if it’s against the law
Something

Something very strange I hear you say
You’re talking in a most peculiar way
But something really threw me
Something oh so groovy
Something happened to me yesterday
(Yesterday)

He don’t know just where it’s gone
He don’t really care at all
No one’s sure just what it was
Or the meaning and the cause
Something

(What kinda joint is this)

(Take your partners)

Me don’t know if it’s right or wrong
Maybe he should tell someone
He’s not sure just what it was
Or if it’s against the law
Something

Someone says there’s something more to pay
For sins that you committed yesterday
It’s really rather drippy
But something oh so trippy
Something happened to me yesterday

He don’t know just where it’s gone
He don’t really care at all
No one’s sure just what it was
Or the meaning and the cause
Something

Someone’s singing loud across the bay
Sittin on a mat about to pray
Isn’t half as looney
As something oh so groovy
Something happened to me yesterday

He don’t know if it’s right or wrong
Maybe he should tell someone
He’s not sure just what it was
Or if it’s against the law
Something

[spoken]
Well thank you very much and now I think it’s time for us
All to go. so from all of us to all of you not forgetting
The boys in the band and our producer, Reg Thorpe,
We’d like to say “God Bless”. So, if you’re out tonight,
Don’t forget, if you’re on your bike, wear white…amen.”
