Damon Albarn – Mr Tembo (Official Video) lyrics

Damon Albarn cu piesa Mr Tembo (Official Video)

Versuri (lyrics):

In Chile, in Chile
Can I sing with you?
‘Bout Mr. Tembo,
And what he’s got to do.

But first I’m going back,
To the (incomprehensible)
To find the mission,
And help him with his luck.

Mr. Tembo’s on his way
Up the hill,
With only this song
To tell you how he feels.

But together, he will
Need a helping hand.
‘Cause where he is now,
But it wasn’t what he planned.

In Chile, in Chile
We will sing with you!
Just like the T.V.
In Mr. Tembo’s room.

Off the enfantic night
He checked in on his own
At Mkomazi inn and
Made it his home.

Mr. Tembo’s on his way
Up the hill,
With only this song
To tell you how he feels.

But together, he will
Need a helping hand.
‘Cause where he is now,
But it wasn’t what he planned.

‘Cause where he is now,
But it wasn’t what he planned.

In Chile, in Chile
We will sing to you
‘Bout Mr. Tembo,
And what he’s going through.

Get some berley,
While you are still in bed.
Mr. Tembo,
Green blanket by his head.

Mr. Tembo’s on his way
Up the hill,
With only this song
To tell you how he feels.

But together, he will
Need a helping hand.
‘Cause where he is now,
But it wasn’t what he planned.

‘Cause where he is now,
But it wasn’t what he planned.

(Hey, you keep those lions off the front of the boat!
Good god, man! Have you some cotton in your ears?!
I’m trying to run this expedition in a decent manner!)

The 264 is gulf, bungalow, styles, canals, cows, haybells.
Telegraph wires, pylon power.
Farmhouse over chimneys still used.
Stone, satellites, football, pictures, favorite flags, and lots of dogs.
Neon cross on top of a block of slates on a church, not as usual.

Mr. Tembo’s on his way
Up the hill,
With only this song
To tell you how he feels.

But together, he will
Need a helping hand.
‘Cause where he is now,
But it wasn’t what he planned.

‘Cause where he is now,
But it wasn’t what he planned.
