Power, gloire et bateau

Alors que je prévoyais déjà ce qui allait arriver dès le post de samedi... :

I don't want your millions, Mister,
I don't want your diamond ring.
All I want is the right to live, Mister,
Give me back my job again.
Now, I don't want your Rolls-Royce, Mister,
I don't want your pleasure yacht.
All I want's just food for my babies,
Give to me my old job back

... on se retrouve aujourd'hui prêt à sombrer comme je vous le fais remarquer ailleurs.

Plus que jamais, je reviens à mes fondamentaux musicaux, et, par conséquent, à Phil Ochs... Ce petit dernier couplet rajouté par sa soeur a comme un goût de déjà vu.

(...)Here is a land full of power and glory
Beauty that words cannot recall
Oh her power shall rest on the strength of her freedom
Her glory shall rest on us all (on us all)

(...)[ extra verse supplied by sonny ochs ]

But our land is still troubled by men who have to hate
They twist away our freedom & they twist away our fate
Fear is their weapon and treason is their cry
We can stop them if we try


Phil Ochs : Power & Glory (live at Newport) (mp3)

Alors : "let's try..."
