ACIDPoPSoNG - Killer/ Papa Was A Rolling Stone by George Michael (1993)


La fusion des deux titres a été réalisée en 1993 par George Michael. A cette époque, le chanteur venait de perdre une bataille juridique contre Sony et promettait qu'il ne chanterait plus une seule note pour eux.
Lié à Sony par contrat, le seul format de chanson qu'il pouvait produire sans eux était une Version Live du titre de quelqu'un d'autre. Et chose fut faite. Et comment!

It was the third of September.
That day I'll always remember, yes I will.
'Cause that was the day that my daddy died.
I never got a chance to see him.
Never heard nothing but bad things about him.
Mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the truth.

And Mama just hung her head and said,
"Son, Papa was a rolling stone.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone."
"Papa was a rolling stone, my son.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone."

Well, well

Hey Mama, is it true what they say,
that Papa never worked a day in his life?
And Mama, some bad talk going around town
saying that Papa had three outside children and another wife.
And that ain't right.
Hey, talk about Papa doing some store front preaching.
Talked about saving souls and all the time leeching.
Dealing in debt and stealing in the name of the Lord.

Mama just hung her head and said,
"Papa was a rolling stone, my son.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone."
"Hey, Papa was a rolling stone.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone."

Ugh

Hey Mama, I heard Papa called himself a jack of all trades.
Tell me is that what sent Papa to an early grave?
Folks say Papa would beg, borrow, steal to pay his bills.
Hey Mama, folks say that Papa was never much on thinking.
Spent most of his life chasing women and drinking.
Mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the truth.

And Mama looked up with a tear in her eye and said,
"Son, Papa was a rolling stone. (Well, well, well, well)
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone, lone, lone, lone, alone."
"Papa was a rolling stone.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone."

"I said, Papa was a rolling stone. Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone."

So you want to be free
To live your life the way you wanna be
Will you give if we cry
Will we live or will we die

Tainted hearts heal with time
Shoot bad love so we can
Stop the bleeding

Solitary brother
Is there still a part of you that wants to live?

Solitary sister
Is there still a part of you that wants to give?

Solitary brother
Is there still a part of you that wants to live?

Solitary sister
Is there still a part of you that wants to give?

If we try and live our lives
The way we wanna be

Brother sister, brother
There's no other love
There's no other love Like ours
There's no other love
There's no other love like ours

Solitary brother
Is there still a part of you that wants to live?

Solitary sister
Is there still a part of you that wants to give?

Solitary brother
Solitary Sister
Is there still a part of you that wants to give?

Racism in among future kings can only lead to no good
Besides all our sons and daughters already know how that feels
