Bob Dylan’s latest single is the work of someone who knows that he is shuffling towards the end of life GETTY IMAGES


Today and tomorrow, and yesterday, too
The flowers are dyin’ like all things do
Follow me close, I’m going to Balian Bali
I’ll lose my mind if you don’t come with me
I fuss with my hair, and I fight blood feuds
I contain multitudes

Got a tell-tale heart, like Mr. Poe
Got skeletons in the walls of people you know
I’ll drink to the truth and the things we said
I’ll drink to the man that shares your bed
I paint landscapes, and I paint nudes
I contain multitudes

Red Cadillac and a black mustache
Rings on my fingers that sparkle and flash
Tell me, what’s next? What shall we do?
Half my soul, baby, belongs to you
I relic and I frolic with all the young dudes
I contain multitudes

I’m just like Anne Frank, like Indiana Jones
And them British bad boys, The Rolling Stones
I go right to the edge, I go right to the end
I go right where all things lost are made good again
I sing the songs of experience like William Blake
I have no apologies to make
Everything’s flowing all at the same time
I live on the boulevard of crime
I drive fast cars, and I eat fast foods
I contain multitudes

Pink petal-pushers, red blue jeans
All the pretty maids, and all the old queens
All the old queens from all my past lives
I carry four pistols and two large knives
I’m a man of contradictions, I’m a man of many moods
I contain multitudes

You greedy old wolf, I’ll show you my heart
But not all of it, only the hateful part
I’ll sell you down the river, I’ll put a price on your head
What more can I tell you? I sleep with life and death in the same bed

Get lost, madame, get up off my knee
Keep your mouth away from me
I’ll keep the path open, the path in my mind
I’ll see to it that there’s no love left behind
I’ll play Beethoven’s sonatas, and Chopin’s preludes
I contain multitudes

Moon river wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style someday (someday, day)
A dream maker (maker, maker)
My heartbreaker (you heartbreaker)
Wherever you’re goin’, I’m goin’ that way (the same, the same)

Two drifters off to see the world
There’s such a crazy world to see
We’re all chasin’ after all the same
Chasing after our rainbow’s end

Moon river wider than a mile
Crossin’ in style someday
My dream maker
Wherever you’re going I’m going the same

Two drifters off to see the world
It’s such a crazy world you’ll see (What I see, who I become)
What I see, who I become
We’re all chasin’ after our end
Chasin’ after our ends

Life’s just around the bend, my friend
Moon river and me

plaisir (προς αφορισμένους): Το τραγούδι μιας παπαδιάς πτωχής

17/12/2017 § Σχολιάστε

Παραδοσιακός συρτός χορός

Μια παπαδιά στον αργαλειό
Τα πόδια της κουνάει
Και με παράπονο πολύ
Ετούτα τραγουδάει:

Ακούστε με γειτόνισσες
Και συγγενείς και ξένοι
Δεν τονε θέλω το παπά
Τον παλιο-τραγογένη

Γιατί δε “λειτουργεί” κι εμέ
Κάτω στην εκκλησιά του
Και ούτε έναν “αγιασμό”
Δεν κάνει στη καρδιά του

Δεν τονε θέλω το παπά
Τον τράγο με τα γένια
Μον’ θέλω τσομπανόπουλο
Να παίζει τη φλογέρα
