PAPA WAS A ROLLING STONE

.











Questo brano lo adoro. Papa was a Rolling Stone. È stato riproposto da diversi cantanti e gruppi come da George Michael, come anche prima di lui da Seal.
Ma l'originale é, e sicuramente rimane insuperabile!
Si parla dell'originale dei TEMPTATIONS.

Buon ascolto :)





PAPA WAS A ROLLING STONE - THE TEMPATIONS 1972

It was the third of September.
That day I'll always remember, yes I will.
'Cause that was the day that my daddy died.
I never got a chance to see him.
Never heard nothing but bad things about him.
Mama, I'm depending on you, tell me the truth.

And Mama just hung her head and said,
"Son, Papa was a rolling stone.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE."
"Papa was a rolling stone, my son.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE."

Well, well.

Hey Mama, is it true what they say,
that Papa never worked a day in his life?
And Mama, bad talk going around town
saying that Papa had three outside children and another wife.
And that ain't right.
HEARD SOME talk about Papa doing some store front preaching.
TalkIN about saving souls and all the time leeching.
Dealing in debt and stealing in the name of the Lord.

Mama just hung her head and said,
"Papa was a rolling stone, my son.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE."
"Hey, Papa was a rolling stone.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE."

Uh!

Hey Mama, I heard Papa call himself a jack of all trade.
Tell me is that what sent Papa to an early grave?
Folk say Papa would beg, borrow, steal to pay his bill.
Hey Mama, folk say that Papa was never much on thinking.
Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking.
Mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the truth. Mama looked up with a tear in her eye and said,
"Son, Papa was a rolling stone. (Well, well, well, well)
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE."
"Papa was a rolling stone.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE."

"I said, Papa was a rolling stone. Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was ALONE."

Si, é anche la mia preferita dei Temptations! Ho diverse verdioni su cd. Da quella normale a quella extended.
Tua moglie ha fatto una coreografia con questa musica? Bello! mi piacerebbe, se esiste, vederne un video sul tuo blog :)

Ufff... The Temptations! Qué voces! Hicieron historia a lo grande, realmente.

Gracias por poner tan buena música, tato!

Cómo andás? Yo, además de estar missing in action - lo que salvan los post programados - ahora mismo estoy con una gripe que me pegó fuerte.

Mal momento para eso porque en menos de 20 días viajo a Argentina (voy a ver a los míos al fin!!).

Te mando muchos besos y te debo un mail, cuando menos (ya lo sé).

Hola Emi,

Si, i Temptations fanno parte della storica della musica. Gruppo mitico!!

Ti sei beccata di nuovo un influenza? Certo che non hai pace tu in questo. Spero migliori al piú presto possibile Emi!!
Tra 20 giorni in Argentina scrivi, penso che dovresti migliorare in questo periodo di tempo, l'Argentina ti aspetta ;)

Baci anche a te, e fatti sentire. Sará un piacere, come tu sai :)
