El matrimonio


Según Billy Bragg. De su disco del año 1986, "Talking with the Taxman About Poetry". Una obra que no debería faltar en la discoteca de ningún hogar civilizado.

Llevo 4 días sin fumar y lo llevo muy bien. Mañana empiezo a currar again y lo llevo estupendamente. La vida me sonríe!

The Marriage



I understand you needing
And wanting is no crime
But I can't help feeling
That you and your mother are
just wasting your time

Choosing Saturdays in Summer
I dare you to wear white
Love is just a moment of giving
And marriage is when we admit
our parents were right

I just don't understand it
What makes our love a sin
How can it make that difference
If you and I are wearing that bloody, bloody ring

If I share my bed with you
Must I also share my life
Love is just a moment of giving
And marriage is when we admit
our parents were right

You just don't understand it
This tender trap we're in
Those glossy catalogues of couples
Are cashing in on happiness again and again

So drag me to the altar
And I'll make my sacrifice
Love is just a moment of giving
And marriage is when we admit
our parents were right
And marriage is when we admit our
parents were probably right

Grande disco, grandes tempos, uma grande canção cuja letra já soube de cor (eh, eh, eh...) e realmente nunca me atrapalhou os - chamemos-lhes - raciocínios...
