oh thou coal black smith...what is your silly song?

ένα ακόμα από τα κολλήματα του 2011...




Oh she looked out of the window
As white as any milk
But he looked to the window
As black as any silk
Hulloa hulloa hulloa hulloa
Hulloa you coal black smith
Oh what is your silly song?
You shall never change my maiden name
That I have kept so long.
I'd rather die a maid, yes
But then she said
And be buried in my grave, yes
And then she said
That I'd have such a nasty
Husky, dusky, musty, fusky
Coal black smith!
A maiden will I die, a maiden will I die!
Then she became a duck
A duck all on the stream
And he became a water dog
And fetched her back again.
Then she became a hare,
A hare all on the plain,
And he became a greyhound dog
And fetched her back again!
Then she became a fly,
A fly all in the air,
And he became a spider
And fetched her to his lair!
I'd rather die a maid, yes
But then she said
And be buried in my grave, yes
And then she said
That I'd have such a nasty
Husky, dusky, musty, fusky
Coal black smith!

to be sorrows desire

dirty blue by Woven Hand...apo ta agapimena kollimata tou 2011




This fear is only the beginning
All for the loving hand
Yes I smile and I agree
It is a good night to shiver
A good tounge might make it right
All Ive said above a whisper

There is a sorrow to be desired
To be sorrows desire

What they say is true
It is a dirty blue
This color around you
Your curled up warm
In your own little corner of Sodom
Did you agree to believe
This fall has no bottom

There is a sorrow to be desired
To be sorrows desire

All we move by the book of numbers
Im held together by string
Ii hear not the voices of others
The bells of Leuven ring
Fear not the faces of brothers
Ive come apart it seems

I see not the faces are covered
Im in your amber ring
Your amber ring
