Sugarman ~ Cause ~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6zm7b9xY3I


~~ 'Cause' (lyrics)

Cause I lost my job two weeks before Christmas

And I talked to Jesus at the sewer

And the Pope said it was none of his God-damned business


While the rain drank champagne

My Estonian Archangel came and got me wasted

Cause the sweetest kiss I ever got is the one I've never tasted


Oh but they'll take their bonus pay to Molly McDonald,

Neon lady , beauty is that which obeys, is bought or borrowed


Cause my heart's become a crooked hotel full of rumours

But it's I who pays the rent for these fingered-face out-of-tuners


And I make 16 solid half hour friendships every evening

Cause your queen of hearts who is half a stone

And likes to laugh alone is always threatening you with leaving


Oh but they play those token games on Willy Thompson

And give a medal to replace the son of Mrs. Annie Johnson


Cause they told me everybody's got to pay their dues

And I explained that I had overpaid them

So overdued I went to the company store

and the clerk there said that they had just been invaded


So I set sail in a teardrop and escaped beneath the doorsill

Cause the smell of her perfume echoes in my head still


Cause I see my people trying to drown the sun

In weekends of whiskey sours

Cause how many times can you wake up in this comic book and plant flowers?

What about "Revolution" by the Beatles? This one instantly came to mind.

Curtis, Sly, Marvin, Hendrix! Man, what a blast to the past. The days of my youth. Sadly Sly is the only one still with us.

@ 'gno' : Glad that you enjoyed it mate. Also somewhat embarrassingly, I've just learnt that Sly is still with us ! Thanx !!

Also re. a critical omission from the above is Gil Scott-Heron - The Revolution Will Not Be Televised [Early Version] - 1970 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qoalKUt0mo & Full Band Version : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGaoXAwl9kw !!

I saw GSH live several times in the UK & even met him on one of those occasions when we spoke about his father Gil Heron who played football for Glasgow Celtic in the 1950s !

RIP : Gilbert "Gil" Scott-Heron (April 1, 1949 – May 27, 2011).

[-] 2 points by gnomunny (6819) from St Louis, MO 11 years ago

Yeah, I just heard about Gil within the last month after reading Lupe Fiasco's tribute poem. I remember well all these guys (not Lupe of course) from my teenage years back in the '70's. Being some of the last 'long-haired hippies' of those days we preferred hard rock and metal but the R&B and soul of those musicians was still a huge part of the music scene back then, full of good sounds, not the hate so common nowadays. Ah, the memories. ;-)

Damn shadz, that was profound. That gnosis thing was completely unintentional, at least on the conscious level. The username is actually a play on, 'Gee, no money.' But on a deeper level some would say there was no mistake at all. I would guess you are an enlightened and/or spiritual individual.

[-] 1 points by shadz66 (19985) 10 years ago

@ 'gno(sis)' : Thought that I'd take the opportunity to extend all the best wishes of the season to you and yours and thus, Merry Xmas and Happy Hanukkah ; Solstice ; Yuletide and a New Year of Peace, Prosperity and Potential ...
