walking on through to the other side

I don’t have plans and schemes
And I don’t have hopes and dreams
I, I, I don’t have anything
Since I don’t have you

And I don’t have fond desires
And I don’t have happy hours
I don’t have anything
Since I don’t have you

Happiness and I guess
I never will again
When you walked out on me
In walked ol’ misery
And she’s been here since then

[spoken] Yeah, we’re fucked!

I don’t have love to share
And I don’t have one who cares
I don’t have anything
Since I don’t have you

You, you, you, oh, oh!
You, you, you, oh, oh!
You, you, you, oh, oh!
You, you, you, oh, oh!
You, you, you, oh yeah!

(Guns N’ Roses , Since I Don’T Have You)

E as águas desse rio
Onde vão, eu não sei.


One empty place, at a table for two,
Our agent in rome, a cafe rendez-vous,
The seat is soon taken, contact is made,
Surveyed by another whose secret is safe.

Whose side are you on?
Whose side are you on?

The courier falls, the coffee was drugged.
The waiter makes off with the microdot.
You don’t have to believe to play that double cross,
Spying for the side that pays them the most

Whose side are you on?

Whose that someone on the inside, an undercover mole?
Too late to use a lie detector, now some heads will roll.

(Matt Bianco ‘Whose Side Are You On?’)

with all your might

Give me the night
In summer or in springtime
To tell the world..

Aretha Franklin
‘Never Let Me Go’

quitting the blues of the world

I’m sitting on the top of the world,
just rolling along, just rolling along
I’m quitting the blues of the world,
just singing a song, just singing a song


Things have come to a pretty pass
Our romance is growing flat,
For you like this and the other
While I go for this and that,
Goodness knows what the end will be
Oh I don’t know where I’m at
It looks as if we two will never be one
Something must be done:

You say either and I say either, You say neither and I say neither
Either, either Neither, neither, Let’s call the whole thing off.

You like potato and I like potahto, You like tomato and I like tomahto
Potato, potahto, Tomato, tomahto, Let’s call the whole thing off

But oh, if we call the whole thing off Then we must part
And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart

So if you go for oysters and I go for ersters, I’ll order oysters and cancel
the ersters
For we know we need each other so we, Better call the calling off off,
Let’s call the whole thing off.

(Louis Armstrong, ‘Let’s call the whole thing off’)

Saturday Night Special

Two feets they come a creepin’
Like a black cat do
And two bodies are layin’ naked
Creeper think he got nothin’ to lose
So he creeps into this house, yeah
And unlocks the door
And as a man’s reaching for his trousers
Shoots him full of .38 holes


It’s the Saturday night special
Got a barrel that’s blue and cold
Ain’t no good for nothin’
But put a man six feet in a hole

Big Jim’s been drinkin’ whiskey
And playing poker on a losin’ night
And pretty soon, Big Jim starts a thinkin’
Somebody been cheatin’ and lyin’
So Big Jim commences to fightin’
I wouldn’t tell you no lie
And Big Jim done pull his pistol
Shot his friend right between the eyes


Well hand guns are made for killin’
They ain’t no good for nothin’ else
And if you like to drink your whiskey
You might even shoot yourself
So why don’t we dump ’em people
To the bottom of the sea
Before some ole fool come around here
Wanna shoot either you or me

Lynyrd Skynyrd “Saturday Night Special”, Sngwr: Edward King & Ronnie Van Zant

not a destination


That one last shot’s a Permanent Vacation
And a how high can you fly with broken wings
Life’s a journey – not a destination
And I just can’t tell just what tomorrow brings

You have to learn to crawl
Before you learn to walk
But I just couldn’t listen 
To all that righteous talk oh yeah
I was out on the street
Just tryin’ to survive
Scratchin’ to stay alive

It’s amazing
With the blink of an eye
You finally see the light
Oh it’s amazing
When the moment arrives
That you know you’ll be alright
Oh it’s amazing
And I’m saying a prayer
For the desperate hearts tonight

(Aerosmith, ”Amazing”)

Hare Hare

Love love
Love love
Drop out
Drop out
Be in
Be in


Take trips get high
Laugh joke and good bye
Beat drum and old tin pot
I’m high on you know what

…Beads, flowers, freedom, happiness…



Nel cor più non mi sento
brillar la gioventù,
cagion del mio tormento,
amor, sei colpa tu,

Mi pizzichi, mi stuzzichi,
mi pungichi, mi mastichi;
che cosa è qesto ahimè?
pietà, pietà, pietà!
amore è un certo che,
che disperer mi fa.

(Comp: Giovanni Paisiello)
