Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #173 - All things must pass



Bela homenagem do Paul e outros amigos a George Harrison. E linda música do George. Com certeza, tudo passa, mesmo.

All Things Must Pass
George Harrison

Sunrise doesn't last all morning
A cloudburst doesn't last all day
Seems my love is up
And has left you with no warning
But it's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away

Sunset doesn't last all evening
A mind can blow those clouds away
After all this my love is up
And must be leaving
It has not always been this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away

All things must pass
None of life's strings can last
So I must be on my way
And face another day

Now the darkness only stays at nighttime
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good
At arriving at the right time
It's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
All things must pass away

Música da época do The Quarrymen, única escrita pelo Paul e pelo George Harrison.
Versão atualizada, com 20 Flight Rock adicional.

In Spite of All the Danger
McCartney - Harrison

In spite of all the danger,
in spite of all that may be
I'll do anything for you,
anything you want me to,
if you'll be true to me.

In spite of all the heartache,
that you may cause me,
I'll do anything for you,
anything you want me to,
if you'll be true to me.

I'll look after you
like I've never done before.
I'll keep all the others
from knocking at your door.

In spite of all the danger,
in spite of all that may be,
I'll do anything for you,
anything you want me to,
if you'll be true to me.

In spite of all the heartache
that you may cause me,
I'll do anything for you,
anything you want me to,
if you'll be true to me.
I'll do anything for you,
anything you want me to,
if you'll be true to me.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #170 Suicide



Hoje vi um vídeo do Sinatra e resolvi procurar alguma música do Paul que tivesse a ver. Achei Suicide, que ele escreveu aos 14 anos e que nunca gravou em disco. E que chegou a mandar para Sinatra, que não quis gravá-la. Aqui, um vídeo da época dos Wings. Linda e rara!

Suicide
Paul McCartney

Girls it's been my pleasure
To know quite a lot of you.
And in the main
You're pretty sane, it's true.
But there are a few who do to
doo ti doo too beautiful a job.
It isn't quite what they planned
When the man gets the upper hand.
He's takin' her for a ride.
I'd call it suicide.

If when she tries to run away
And he calls her back, she comes.
If there's a next time, he's okay
Cause she's under both his thumbs.
She limps along to his side
Singing a song of ruin. I'd
bet he says nothin' doin'.
I-I-I-I I'd call it suicide.

She loves to ride in big parades.
But he wouldn't so she won't.
She needs at least a dozen maids.
But if he says no she don't.
He wishes she knew his side.
Soon there'll be trouble brewin' I'd
bet he says nothin' doin'
I-I-I-I I'd call it suicide.

Suicide, she's commitin' it
Suicide, he's not gettin' it
Suicide, it's a quittin' a day.

She limps along to his side
Singing a song of ruin. I'd
bet he says nothin' doin'.
I-I-I-I I'd call it suicide.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #169 You Won't See Me



Uma música fofa do disco Rubber Soul, que o Paul quase nunca toca:
You Won't See Me. Aliás, esse é um disco cheio de pérolas.

You Won't See Me
The Beatles

When I call you up,
Your line's engaged.
I have had enough,
So act your age.

We have lost the time
That was so hard to find
And I will lose my mind
If you won't see me.
You won't see me.

I don't know why you
Should want to hide.
But I can't get through.
My hands are tied.

I won't want to stay.
I don't have much to say
And I can turn away
And you won't see me.
You won't see me.

Time after time
You refuse to even listen.
I wouldn't mind
If I knew what I was missing.

Though the days are few
They're filled with tears.
And since I lost you,
It feels like years.

Yes, it seems so long,
Girl, since you've been gone
And I just can't go on
If you won't see me.
You won't see me.

Time after time
You refuse to even listen.
I wouldn't mind
If I knew what I was missing,

Though the days are few
They're filled with tears.
And since I lost you,
It feels like years.

Yes, it seems so long,
Girl, since you've been gone
And I just can't go on
If you won't see me.
You won't see me.
Yeah.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #168 Brown Eyed Handsome Man



Versão do Paul de um clássico de Chuck Berry: Brown Eyed Handsome Man. Aliás, o que ele é, de fato. Vídeo divertido.

Brown Eyed Handsome Man
Chuck Berry

Well, flying across the desert in a TWA, I saw a woman walking across the sand.
She'd be walking thirty miles en route to Bombay to meet a brown eyed handsome man,
her destination was a brown eyed handsome man.

Way back in history three thousand years, in fact ever since the world began,
there's been a whole lotta good women shedding tears over a brown eyed handsome man,
a lot of trouble was a brown eyed handsome man.

Well, the Milo de Venus was a beautiful lass, she had the world in the palm of her hand
she lost both her arms in a wrestling match to win a brown eyed handsome man,
she fought and won herself a brown eyed handsome man.

Well, a beautiful daughter couldn't make up her mind between a doctor and a lawyer man.
Her mother told her daughter go out and find yourself a brown eyed handsome man,
just like your daddy was, a brown eyed handsome man.

Well, a two, three the count with nobody home he hit a high flyer into the stand.
A rounded third he was a-heading for home,
it was a brown eyed handsome man that won the game,
It was a brown eyed handsome man.
It was a brown eyed handsome man.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #167 Long Tall Sally



Um clássico do rock interpretado pelo Paul para começar o fim de semana em alto astral: Long Tall Sally. Guitarra do Mark Knopfler. Nem a princesa Diana conseguiu ficar parada!

Long Tall Sally
Little Richard

Don't tell Aunt Mary about Uncle John
He claims he got married, but he's having lots of fun
Oh, baby, yeah, baby
Oh, baby, having me some fun tonight

Well, long tall Sally, she's built sweet
She's got everything that Uncle John needs
Oh, baby, yeah baby
Oh, baby, having me some fun tonight

Well, I saw Uncle John with bald-head Sally
He saw Aunt Mary coming and he ducked back in the alley
Oh, baby, yeah baby
Oh, baby, having me some fun tonight

I'm gonna have some fun tonight
Have some fun tonight, have some fun tonight
Everything's all right
Have some fun, having me some fun tonight

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #166 That´s All Right Mama



Só mesmo o Paul para cantar essa música tão bem quanto o Elvis Presley. Vídeo muito legal.

That's Alright, Mama
Jimmy Rogers

Well, that's alright, mama
That's alright for you
That's alright mama, just anyway you do
Well, that's alright, that's alright.
That's alright now mama, anyway you do

Mama she done told me,
Papa done told me too
'Son, that gal your foolin' with,
She ain't no good for you'
But, that's alright, that's alright.
That's alright now mama, anyway you do

I'm leaving town, baby
I'm leaving town for sure
Well, then you wont be bothered with
Me hanging 'round your door
Well, that's alright, that's alright.
That's alright now mama, anyway you do

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #165 While My Guitar Gently Weeps



A música é dos Beatles, escrita pelo George Harrison, mas vale pela presença no Paul e do Ringo na apresentação. Uma das mais lindas músicas do rock, na minha opinião, e um solo de guitarra sublime, do mago Clapton, nesta e no original.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps
George Harrison

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps

(I look from the wings at the play you are staging
While my guitar gently weeps
As I'm sitting here doing nothing but aging
Still my guitar gently weeps)

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #164 The Night Before



The Night Before é uma música de Help, o primeiro disco dos Beatles que eu tive, presente de um amigo, Fabião. Talvez por isso seja um dos meus preferidos - foi paixão instantânea! As duas versões do vídeo (com Beatles e só Paul) são demais.

The Night Before
Lennon/McCartney

We said our goodbyes.
(Ah.. the night before.)
Love was in your eyes.
(Ah.. the night before.)
Now, today I find
You have changed your mind.
Treat me like you did the night before.
Were you tellin' lies?
(Ah.. the night before.)
Was I so unwise?
(Ah.. the night before.)
When I held you near,
You were so sincere.
Treat me like you did the night before.
Last night is a night
I will remember you by.
When I think of things we did,
It makes me want to cry.
We said our goodbyes.
(Ah.. the night before.)
Love was in your eyes.
(Ah.. the night before.)
Now, today I find
You have changed your mind.
Treat me like you did the night before. Yes.
When I held you near,
You were so sincere.
Treat me like you did the night before.
Last night is a night
I will remember you by.
When I think of things we did,
It makes me want to cry.
Were you tellin' lies?
(Ah.. the night before.)
Was I so unwise?
(Ah.. the night before.)
When I held you near,
You were so sincere.
Treat me like you did the night before.
Like the night before.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #163 I Will



Uma balada linda do Álbum Branco, feita pelo Paul, embora assinada pela dupla: I Will.

I Will
Lennon/McCartney

Who knows how long I've loved you,
You know I love you still,
Will I wait a lonely lifetime,
If you want me to I will.

For if I ever saw you,
I didn't catch your name,
But it never really mattered,
I will always feel the same.

Love you forever and forever,
Love you with all my heart;
Love you whenever we're together,
Love you when we're apart.

And when at last I find you,
Your song will fill the air,
Sing it loud so I can hear you,
Make it easy to be near you,
For the things you do endear you to me,
you know I will.
I will.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #162 Friends To Go



Uma música do disco Chaos and Creation in the Backyard: Friends to Go. Segundo o Paul, inspirada pelo George Harrison. O vídeo é bem bacana.

Friends To Go
Paul McCartney

I've been waitin on the other side, for your friends to leave
So I don't have to hide, I prefer they didnt know
So I've been waiting on the other side, for your friends to go

I've been sliding down a slippery slope, I've been climbing
Up a slowly burning rope, but the flame is getting low
I've been waitin' on the other side, for your friends to go

You never need to worry about me, I'll be fine on my own
Someone else can worry about me
I've spent a lot of time on my own
I've spent a lot of time on my own

I've been waitin till the danger past, I don't know
How long the storm is gonna to last, if we're gonna carry on
I'll been waiting on the other side, till your friends are gone

So tell me what I wanna know
I'll be waiting on the other side, for your friends to go

(solo)

Someone else can worry about me
I've spent a lot of time on my own
I've spent a lot of time on my own

I've been waiting on the other side
For your friends to leave so I don't have to hide
I prefer they didnt know
So I've been waiting on the other side, for your friends to go

I've been waiting on the other side
I've been waiting on the other side, for your friends to go

Música bacana do disco Ram. Animada para começar o fim de semana bem.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #160 P.S. I Love You



Uma das minhas favoritas do disco Please Please Me, dos Beatles, em versão atualizada, animada, da turnê de 1993, mixada com Love Me Do. No final, o original, do tempo em que a gente ainda mandava e recebia cartas de amor. Tenho todas as que recebi guardadas! Lindas lembranças...

P.S. I Love You
Lennon/McCartney

As I write this letter
Send my love to you
Remember that I'll always
Be in love with you

Treasure these few words
Till we're together
Keep all my love forever
P.S. I love you
you, you, you

I'll be comin' home again to you, love
Until the day I do love
P.S. I love you
you, you, you

As I write this letter
Send my love to you (you know I want you to)
Remember that I'll always
Be in love with you (yeah)

Treasure these few words
Till we're together

you, you, you
you, you, you
I love you

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #159 Single Pigeon



Uma balada delicada do disco Red Rose Speedway para retomar a série do Paul: Single Pigeon.

A vida mudou, trabalho novo, amigos novos e antigos, mais tempo para a família. Estou mais leve, mais feliz. A crise passou. As músicas do Paul cumpriram seu papel, como eu previ mais de um ano atrás. Não consegui colocar uma por dia, mas valeu. Até consegui ver o Paul ao vivo neste período! Espero agora retomar a escrita por prazer, já que não tenho mais a escrita por obrigação. Com as músicas dele como refresco.

Single Pigeon
Paul McCartney

Single Pigeon Through The Railing
Did She Throw You Out
Sunday Morning Fight About Saturday Night

Single Seagull Gliding Over Regent's Park Canal
Do You Need A Pal For A Minute Or Two
You Do?
Me Too, Me Too, Me Too
I'm A Lot Like You
Me Too, Me Too, Me Too
I'm A Lot Like You

Did She! Turf You Out In The Cold Morning Rain Again
Me Too, Me Too, Me Too
I'm A Lot Like You
Me Too, Me Too, Me Too
I'm A Lot Like You

Sunday Morning Fight About Saturday Night

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #158 Souvenir



Música linda de Flaming Pie, um de meus discos favoritos do Paul. Mistura delicadeza com uma pegada mais pesada. Pena que não tem vídeo, só áudio.

Souvenir
Paul McCartney

When you're fed up shedding too many tears
And you're memories seem like just so many souvenirs
I will come to you to ease the pain

If you want me tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Everything is gonna come right in the end

When you're crying like a poor little child
And you're feeling like you never could be reconciled
Don't forget a word of what I'm saying

If you want me tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Everything is is gonna come right in the end

Well, I can hold you too tight
I could never let you go
But that wouldn't be right
So, why don't you let me know (let me know)

Everybody's got a handful of fear
But tomorrow it may only be a souvenir
Of the way it was 'til it went away

If you want me tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Every little thing is gonna come right in the end

Well, I can hold you too tight
I could never let you go
But that wouldn't be right
So, why don't you let me know (let me know)

If you want me tell me now
If I can be of any help, tell me how
Let me love you like a friend
Every little thing is gonna come right in the end

Souvenir
No, not another souvenir
No, no no, no, souvenir

Yes I will, I'll get you in the end, oh yeah, oh yeah.

I need you and it's true.
When I think about you, I can say,
I'm never, never, never, never blue.
So I'm telling you, my friend,
That I'll get you, I'll get you in the end,
Yes I will, I'll get you in the end, oh yeah, oh yeah.

Well, there's gonna be a time,
Well I'm gonna change your mind
So you might as well resign yourself to me, oh yeah.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #156 Figure of Eight



Figure of Eight não é das minhas favoritas, mas vale entrar aqui, porque é de uma fase dele de que gosto muito.

Figure Of Eight
Paul McCartney

(Well) You've Got Me Dancing In A Figure Of Eight,
Don't Know If I'm Coming Or Going, I'm Early Or Late.
Round And Round The Ring I Go,
I Want To Know, I Want To Know,
Why Can't We Travel A Continuous Line?
Make Love Reliable Convenant All The Time.
Up And Down The Hills I Go, I Got To Know, I Got To Know.

Is Is Better To Love Another
Than To Go Go For A Walk In The Dark?
Is It Better To Love Than To Give In To Hate?
Yeah We'd Better Take Good Care Of Each Other
Avoid Slipping Back Off The Straight And Narrow,
It's Better By Far Than Getting Stuck In A Figure Of Eight.

(Well) Figure It Out For Yourself Little Girl,
It Don't Go Nowhere At All,
It's Nothing More Than A Tape Loop In A Big Dance Hall.

You've Got Me Running...
You've Got Me Running...

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #155 That Was Me



Música legal do disco memory Almost Full.

That Was Me
Paul McCartney

That was me, in the scout camp, in the school play
Spade and bucket by the sea, that was me

That was me, playing conkers at the bus stop
On a blanket in the blue bells, that was me

The same me that stands here now
When I think that all this stuff
Can make a life that's pretty hard to take it in, that was me

Well that was me, royal iris, on the river
Mersy beat n' with the band, that was me

Yeah that was me, sweating cobwebs under contract
In the cellar, on TV, that was me

The same me that stands here now
If fate agreed that all of this
To make a lifetime, who am I to disagree, that was me

That was me, accapella at the alter
in the middle of the picture, that was me

That was me at the party, sweatin' cobwebs
In a cellar on TV ya that was me

The same me that stands here now
When I think that all this stuff
Can make a life that's pretty hard to take it in, that was me
That was me, ya, that was me!

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #154 Follow Me



Follow Me é bem típica do Paul, na letra e na melodia. Para começar bem a semana.

Follow Me
Paul McCartney

You lift up my spirits, you shine on my soul
Whenever I'm empty, you make me feel whole
I can rely on you, to guide me through, any situation
You hold up a sign that reads, follow me.

You give me direction, you show me the way
You give me a reason, to face every day
I can depend on you, to send me to, any destination
You hold up a sign that reads, follow me, follow me.

Down the track of lonelines, down the path of love
Through the words of heartache, to the end
On the shores of sorrow, where the waves of hope crash in
The perfect place for me to find a friend. ahh yeah yeah yeah, oh

You lead to places, that I've never been
Uncovering secrets, that I've never seen
I can rely on you, to guide me through, any situation
You hold up a sign that reads, follow me, follow me,
Follow me, follow me,
Follow me, follow me

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #152 Hey Jude



Hey Jude volta aqui, na versão tocada no RJ agora em maio, por recomendação do Chico Mazali. Maravilhosa, como sempre! Embaixo, a versão de 1993 no Pacaembu, em São Paulo, a que tive o privilègio de assistir, colada no palco. E com direito a um pedacinho da tolaha que ele jgou na plateia. Inesquecível!

Hey Jude
Lennon/McCartney

Hey, Jude, don't make it bad,
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

Hey, Jude, don't be afraid,
You were made to go out and get her.
The minute you let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better.

And anytime you feel the pain,
Hey, Jude, refrain,
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders.
For well you know that it's a fool
Who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder.

Da da da da da da da da da.

Hey, Jude, don't let me down,
You have found her, now go and get her.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin,
You're waiting for someone to perform with.
And don't you know that it's just you,hey Jude you'll do,
The movement you need is on your shoulder.

Da da da da da da da da da.

Hey, Jude, don't make it bad,
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better...

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #151 Wild Life



Wild Life é a música que dá nome ao primeiro álbum dos Wings. Muito boa, assim como o vídeo, uma raridade de 1973. E continua atualíssima.

Wild Life
Paul McCartney

While take a walk thru an African park one day,
I saw a sign say, "The animals have the right of way".

Wild life, whatever happened to,
Wild life, the animals in the zoo?

We're breathing a lot,
a lot of political nonsense in the air.

You're making it hard for the people who live in there.
You're moving so fast, but, baby, you know not where.
Wild life, (wild life), what's gonna happen to
Wild life, (wild life), the animals in the zoo?

You'd better stop, there's animals ev'rywhere,
And man is the top, an animal too,
And, man, you just got to care.

Wild life, what's gonna happen to,
Wild life, the animals in the zoo?

You're breathing a lot of polical nonsense in the air.

Wild life, (wild life), what's gonna happen to
(what's gonna happen to) (what's gonna happen to)
Wild life, (wild life), the animals in the zoo?
(what's gonna happen to) (what's gonna happen to)
Wild life, what ever happened to?
What ever happened to?

Comida e afeto


Desde a semana passada, ando pensando muito em comida. Finalmente, tenho tido tempo de cozinhar, depois de anos sem me aventurar no fogão, com esporádicas visitas aqui e ali. E, com certeza, ver minha filha e meu marido comendo minha comida com prazer me faz ficar mais animada ainda para voltar a dominar as panelas, pelo menos nos finais de semana.

E isso me fez lembrar o que a comida significa para mim. Comer, desde sempre, é um prazer. Mas é um prazer que extrapola a comida em si. Comer é uma celebração, um momento de compartilhar cm a família e os amigos alegria e, principalmente, afeto. Aprendi a cozinhar vendo a minha avó e a minha mãe preparando as refeições da família.

Acho que, por isso, as minhas melhores memórias de infância estão sempre envolvidas com comida - o bolo do caco, típico da Ilha da Madeira, que minha avó assava nos almoços de família; o pão de pimenta que ela fazia na época do Natal; a rabada e o nhoque de forno que minha mãe fazia; os brigadeiros das nossas festinhas de aniversário, que as próprias crianças ajudavam a fazer.

E nem só as memórias de infância. Também as de viagem estão estreitamente ligadas à comida, que determina, em grande parte, as mimhas impressões dos locais por onde passei. Por isso, fujo dos fast-foods e dos restaurantes para turistas e procuro comer onde os moradores vão. De preferência, restaurantes de comida mais caseira. Acho que é assim, pela comida do dia a dia, é que se conhece melhor um povo, uma cultura. São inesquecíveis o molho de tomate que experimentei em Veneza - num restaurantezinho simples comandado por uma chinesa! -, a baguete do liceu onde estudei um mês em Paris, o sorvete de castanha de Belém do Pará, a sopa de cebola servida em uma panela de pedra sabão em Diamantina...

Dá para ter isso com fast-food ou comida industrializada? Duvido. Eles são bons para emergências, mas nada mais que isso.

O meu redescoberto prazer em cozinhar tem a ver com isso. Quero que minha filha tenha essas mesmas lembranças. Que ela, ao comer um pavê daqui a 20 anos, lembre-se com carinho de quando eu fazia a sobremesa favorita dela, ou suas batatas fritas preferidas, ou as panquecas doces e salgadas. Ou das viagens que fizemos juntas, provando comidinhas deliciosas e descobrindo novidades maravilhosas.

E meu marido também - que, cozinheiro de mão cheia, percebeu logo essa minha ligação afetuosa com a comida e me conquistou, literalmente, pelo estômago! Aliás, vamos comer daqui a pouco uma sopa de queijo servida no pão italiano, que foi o primeiro prato que ele preparou para mim quando começamos a namorar. Comida com afeto!

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #149 Mary Had A Little Lamb



Este vídeo de Mary Had a Little Lamb é uma raridade da época dos Wings. Muito figura...

Mary Had A Little Lamb
Paul McCartney

Mary had a little lamb,
his fleece was white as snow,
Ev'rywhere that Mary went,
that lamb was sur to go.

And you could hear them singing:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.

He followed her to school one day,
it was against the rules,
Made the children laugh and play to
see a lamb at school.

You could hear them singing:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.

Soon the teacher turned it out,
still it lingered near,
Waited patiently about till
Mary did appear.

You could hear them singing:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.

"But the lamb loved Mary so",
the eager children cry,
"And Mary loves the lamb, you know",
the teacher did reply.

And you could hear them singing:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
(Ev'ry body singing)
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #148 Country Dreamer



Para variar um pouco de Beatles, depois de shows com overdose deles, uma música delicada da era Wings: Country Dreamer.

Country Dreamer
Paul McCartney

I'd like to walk in a field with you,
Take my hat and my boots off too.
I'd like to lie in a field with you.
Would you like to do it too, may?
Would you like to do it too?
I'd like to stand in a stream with you,
Roll my trousers up and not feel blue.
I'd like to wash in a stream with you.
Would you like to do it too?

You and i, country dreamer,
When there's nothing else to do;
Me oh my, conutry dreamer,
Make a country dream come true.

I'd like to climb up a hill with you,
Stand on top and admire the view.
I'd like to roll down a hill with you.
Would you like to do it too, may?
Would you like to do it too?

I'd like to climb up a hill with you,
Take my hat and my boots off too.
I'd like to lie in a field with you.
Would you like to do it too, may?
Would you like to do it too?

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #147 Lady Madonna



Versão recente, bem blues para Lady Madonna, dos Beatles. E o vídeo emenda ainda English Tea, linda demais, e uma palhinha de Elvis. O que daria para estar presente nessa apresentação...

Lady Madonna
Lennon/McCartney

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet
Who finds the money? When you pay the rent?
Did you think that money was Heaven sent?
Friday night arrives without a suitcase
Sunday morning creep in like a nun
Monday's child has learned to tie his bootlace
See how they run

Lady Madonna, baby at your breast
Wonder how you manage to feed the rest

See how they run

Lady Madonna, lying on the bed
Listen to the music playing in your head

Tuesday afternoon is never ending
Wednesday morning papers didn't come
Thursday night you stockings needed mending
See how they run

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #145 Again And Again And Again



Esta vale mais pelo vídeo, da época dos Wings.

Again And Again And Again
Paul McCartney

Now you don't wanna be the little woman
No you don't want to be the little woman
I love. No, no, no, no. I love.
Now you don't wanna stay in my school
You don't wanna be the one that's cool.
You don't wanna be the little woman I love.
You're up all night and we can let it hang out right. (Yeah!)
I said good-bye to all my expectations the day you walked out of my life.

Winter time is coming now
Gimme a sign if you can somehow.
Make it clear where you're heading for
Will I see you someday at my door?
Taking it all into consideration
Love's a game I never win.
I've been in very similar situations,
Again and again and again.

Oh, no. Now you don't wanna be the little woman
No, you don't want to be the little woman
I love. No, no, no, no. I love.
Now you don't wanna stay in my home
You just wanna be on your own.
You don't wanna be the little woman I love.
Take it away!

Ah, yeah!
Well things were fine all the summer long
Then things changed, so where did we go wrong?
We can run but we cannot hide
In the greener grass on the other side.
Taking it all into consideraton,
Love's a game I never win.
I've been in very similar situations,
Again and again and again

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #143 She's Leaving Home



Uma das músicas mais legais dos Beatles: She's leaving home. Poucas vezes tocada em shows pelo Paul, uma pena. Aqui, vídeo gravado na Praça Vermelha, em Moscou.

She's Leaving Home
Lennon/McCartney

Wednesday morning at five o´clock as the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen
Clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside she is free

She
We gave her most of our lives
Is leaving
Sacrified most of our lives
Home
We gave her everything money could buy
She´s leaving home after living alone
For so many years

Father snores as his wife gets into
Her dressing gown
Picks up the letter that´s lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down and cries to her husband
"daddy, our baby is gone"
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
How could she do this to me?

She
We never thought of ourselves
Is leaving
Never a thought of ourselves
Home
We struggled hard all our lives to get by
She´s leaving home after living alone
For so many years

Friday morning at nine o´clock she is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the motor trade

She
What did we do that was wrong?
Is having
We didn´t know it was wrong
Fun
Fun is the one thing that money can´t buy
Something inside that was always denied
For so many years

She´s leaving home, bye, bye

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #142 Please Please Me

Please Please Me
Lennon/McCartney

Last night I said these words to my girl
I know you never even try, girl
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Please, please me, wo yeah, like I please you

You don't need me to show the way, love
Why do I always gave to sat, love
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Please, please me, wo yeah, like I please you

I don't want to sound complaining
but you know there's always rain in my heart
I do all the pleasing with you,
it's so hard to reason with you
wo yeah, why do you make me blue?

Last night I said these words to my girl
I know you never even try, girl
Come on, come on, come on, come on

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #141 Your Mother Should Know



Esta música é do álbum Magical Mistery Tour, dos Beatles. O filme é muito louco, mas o trechinho em que aparece a música nem tanto. Gosto bastante.

Your Mother Should Know
Lennon/McCartney

Ooh..
Let's all get up and dance to a song
That was a hit before your mother was born.
Though she was born a long, long time ago,
Your mother should know. (Your mother should..)
Your mother should know. (Know..)
Sing it again.

Mais uma dos Beatles, para fechar a semana com alto astral: Good Day Sunshine.

Good Day Sunshine
Lennon/McCartney

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
I need to laugh and when the sun is out
I've got something I can laugh about
I feel good in a special way
I'm in love and it's a sunny day
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
We take a walk, the sun is shining down
Burns my feet as I touch the ground
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #139 Ain't She Sweet



Uma das primeiras músicas gravadas pelos Beatles, aqui num vídeo recente, com o Paul, o Ringo e o George, pouco antes de ele morrer. Muito comovente

Ain't She Sweet?
Jack Yellen/Milton Ager

Oh ain't she sweet,
Well see her walking down that street.
Yes I ask you very confidentially:
Ain't she sweet?
Oh ain't she nice,
Well look her over once or twice.
Yes I ask you very confidentially:
Ain't she nice?
Just cast an eye
In her direction.
Oh me oh my,
Ain't that perfection?
Oh I repeat
Well don't you think that's kind of neat?
Yes I ask you very confidentially:
Ain't she sweet?
Oh ain't she sweet,
Well see her walking down that street.
Well I ask you very confidentially:
Ain't she sweet?
Oh ain't that nice,
Well look it over once or twice.
Yes I ask you very confidentially:
Ain't she nice?
Just cast an eye
In her direction.
Oh me oh my,
Ain't that perfection?
Oh I repeat
Well don't you think that's kind of neat?
Yes I ask you very confidentially:
Ain't she sweet?
Oh ain't she sweet,
Well see her walking down that street.
Well I ask you very confidentially:
Ain't she sweet?
Well I ask you very confidentially:
Ain't she sweet?

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #138 Yesterday, Here There and Everywhere e Wanderlust



A única inédita deste medley é Here, There and Everywhere, mas gosto demais desse trechinho do filme Give My Regards to Broad Street.

Here, There And Everywhere
Lennon/McCartney

To lead a better life, I need a love of my own
Here,
Making each day of the year
Changing my life with a wave of her hand
Nobody can deny that there's something there
I want her everywhere
And if she's beside me I know I need never care
But to love her is to meet her everywhere,
Knowing that love is to share,
Each one believing that love never dies
Watching her eyes and hoping I'm always there
I will be here, there and everywhere
Here, there and everywhere

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #137 No Values



Do disco e do filme Give My Regards to Broad Street, um rock legal, com a participação especial do Ringo Starr. Muito bom.

No Values
Paul McCartney

I hear them telling me that you're selling off the furniture
And even keep my personalized autographs
You might as well go all the way and sell your granny to the zoo
And while you're at it, may I go to my psychiatrist ?
He's making money out of making me laugh
But I don't mind , I wish that I could say the same about you
It seems to me that you've still got no values
Oh you know you're not so hot, no values
And I'll be glad if you went away again
No values . . . no values . . . no values at all
The city shark is at the dark and of the alleyway
You pays your money and you takes your choice
The artful dodger says he wants to pick a pocket or two
But you, you've taken up a place in high society
A personal friend of messrs rolls and royce
Got them all convinced that everything you say to them is true
It seems to me that you've still got no values
Oh you know you're not so hot, no values
You know you've got a lot, but no values
And I'd be glad if you went away again
No values . . . no values . . . no values at all
I like your wife's smile, I like her car
If I had your lifestyle, I wouldn't go far wrong
On the waters of life you row your boat
Into the strongest tide that you can find
On the darkest of nights we were two of a kind
We went through it all before the tide went out
And left us stranded on the shore
How was I to know
How was I to know
Well you ain't got no values
You know you think you're hot, no values
You know you've got a lot, but no values
And I'd be glad if you went away again
No values . . . no values . . . no values at all

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #136 All You Need Is Love



Para começar a semana, uma das minhas preferidas dos Beatles, que fala de algo que vale a pena sempre lembrar: All You Need Is Love. É o amor que de fato move o mundo, é a falta dele que causa todos os nossos problemas. O vídeo de cima é o original dos Beatles e o de baixo, um mais atual, com participações especiais do Rod Stewart e do Joe Cocker.

All You Need is Love
Lennon/McCartney

Love, Love, Love.
Love, Love, Love.
Love, Love, Love.

There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game.
It's easy.

Nothing you can make that can't be made.
No one you can save that can't be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.
It's easy.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.

Nothing you can know that isn't known.
Nothing you can see that isn't shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.
It's easy.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.

All you need is love (Paul: All together, now!)
All you need is love. (Everybody!)
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need (love is all you need).

Yee-hai!
Oh yeah!
She loves you, yeah yeah yeah.
She loves you, yeah yeah yeah.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #134 No Other Baby



Muito boa a regravação de No Other Baby pelo Paul. O vídeo é bem bacana.

No Other Baby
Bishop/Watson

But I don't want no other baby but you, I don't want no other baby but you,
cause no other baby can thrill me like you do.

Got a little woman, lives across the hall, I got a little woman, she lives across the hall
and most every evening she's asking me to call.
But I don't want no other baby but you, I don't want no other baby but you,
cause no other baby can thrill me like you do.

But lots of other women say be my daddy do, yeah, lots of other women say be my daddy do,
but I tell them I don't want no other baby like you.
I said, I don't want no other baby but you, I don't want no other baby but you,
cause no other baby can thrill me like you do.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #132 Lonesome Town



Um blues dos bons, uma interpretação maravilhosa e um vídeo nota 10: Lonesome Town.

Lonesome Town
Knight

There's a place where lovers go
To cry their troubles away
And we call it Lonesome Town
Where the broken hearts stay

You can buy a dream or two
To last you all through the years
And the only price you pay
Is a heart full of tears

Going down to Lonesome Town,
Where the broken hearts stay
I'm going down to Lonesome Town,
To cry my troubles away

And in the town of broken dreams
The streets are filled with regret
Maybe down in Lonesome Town
Well I can learn to forget

Lead solo

Going down to Lonesome Town,
Where the lonely hearts stay
I'm going down to Lonesome Town,
To cry, to cry my troubles away

And in the town of broken dreams
The streets are filled with regret
Maybe down in Lonesome Town
I can learn to forget

Maybe down in Lonesome Town
I can learn to forget

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #131 I Owe It All To You



Uma balada para começar a semana: I Owe it All to You.

I Owe It All To You
Paul McCartney

Last Night You Helped Me Through,
Took Me To The Lovers Zone
I Saw There, Images
Projected On A Wall Of Stone
I Stood Inside Egyptian Temples,
I Looked Into Eternal Gardens,
Lay On The Shores Of Distant Islands,
Listening To The Sea Birds Song Of Joy.

Oh, I Owe It All To You,
You Make Me Happy,
Oh, I Owe It All To You.

Late Last Night, We Were Right
Into Some Exotic Scene.
Everywhere, Images
Appearing On A Giant Screen.
I Stood Inside A Glass Cathedral,
I Looked Into The Golden Canyon,
Lay By The Lakes Of Holy Water
Glistening Like A Diamond In The Light.

Oh, I Owe It All To You,
You Make Me Happy,
Oh, I Owe It All To You.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #130 Baby's Request



Baby's Request tem o estilo dos standards americanos, apesar de ser com os Wings. O vídeo é muito legal, parece saído dos anos 50, época das big bands.

Baby's Request
Paul McCartney

When the moon lays his head on a pillow
And the stars settle down for a rest,
Just do me one small favor, I beg you,
Please play me my baby's request.

It's the song that we heard when we started.
Now the birds have all flown from our nest,
But you could bring back mem'ries departed
By playing my baby's request.

My baby said
That she knows how it goes
But you're the one who really knows,
So go ahead

Just one more time and then we'll go to bed.

But you could bring back mem'ries departed
By playing my baby's request.

My baby says
That she knows how it goes but you're the one that really knows.
So go ahead
Just one more time and then we'll go to bed.

When the moon lays his head on a pillow
And the star settles down for a rest,
Just do me one small favour, I beg you,
Please play me baby's request.
Mh-hm, play me baby's request.
Please! Play me my baby's request -- one more time.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #129 Winter Rose - Love Awake



Outra com os Wings. Acho a música meio arrastada, mas vale o vídeo, da época.

Winter Rose/Love Awake
Paul McCartney
All through the summer I have followed you around
Bringing a rose for the winter that's coming
Now the snow is on the ground.
Winter rose. Winter rose.
Shine your light in the air.
Winter rose. Winter rose.
Skine your light everywhere.
Love awake. Toll the bell.
Tell the world how glad you are.
Love awake to the day
When we can make our love awake.

Lord knows we need it any time we can get it.
But if we forget it every now and then.
But if you don't feel it, later on you'll regret it.
And if we let it we could set it free, you and me.

Love awake. Tone the bell.
Tell the world how glad you are.
Love awake to the day
When we can make our love awake.

Snowfalls in the winter,
Spring brings the rain.
But it's never to long before the summer comes again.
It always comes again!

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #128 I've Had Enough



Música antiga, dos Wings, e vídeo da época. Rock dos bons.

I've Had Enough
Paul McCartney

You're talking to me from the back of my car
And i can't get nothing right
And then you wonder why stand at the bar
Day and night
Chorus

I've had enough
I can't put up with any more
No no no no no no no
I've had enough
I can't put up with any more
No no no no no no no

You stand behind me with a watch in your hand
And i can't get nothing done
Well, people tell me you're punctual man
But come on

I earn the money and you take it away
When i don't know where you're from
I should be worried but they say
It'll pay for a bomb

I've had enough

Baby you know sometimes you get a little weary
But if it ever happens honey
You just come along to me
Because you know

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #127 Why So Blue



Why So Blue é do disco Memory Almost Full. Uma balada típica do Paul, na melodia e na letra.

Why So Blue
Paul McCartney

Staring from a cradboard castle down and out
One of life's young students find what its all about
Paper flutters angry taxi drivers shout

From the pages of a paper candles shine
On a perfect table laid for two who love to dine
They suggest a highly recommended wine
Once again the same old line

Why so sad
My fine young friend
Why so blue

Weary carriage horses stand in single file
Someone at a crowded bus stop wears a friendly smile
Touching nerves that no one's heard from in a while
Papers from the same old file

Why so sad
My fine young friend
Why so blue

Sometimes when eyes meet
You know
They have to meet again
Sometimes birds of a feather
Got to fly
Together oh

From a dingy attic window candles shine
On a perfect table laid for two who love to dine
Now they drink the highly recommended wine
Free at last and feeling fine

I'm so glad (I am so glad)
My (It's not so bad)
fine (It's not the end)
young (I am the friend)
friend (I am the friend)
Glad for you

Well I'm so glad (I'd be so sad)
My (It's not so bad)
fine (It's not the end)
young (I am the friend)
friend (I am the friend)
Glad for you

You used to be so blue
You used to be so blue
Why so blue

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #126 Anyway



Uma balada linda do disco Chaos and Creation on the Backyard. Realmente, esse é um dos CDs mais lindos do Paul. Pena que não tem um vídeo bacana.

Anyway
Paul McCartney

If you love me, won't you call me
I've been waiting, waiting to long
In my soul is, constant yearning
Always singing, singing this song

Only love is strong enough, to take it on the chin
When did I begin, to fall

Anyway, Anyway, you can make, that call
You feel free, to make yourself, at home - woh-oh, ahhhhhh, ohhhhh

If we could be, closer longer
That would help me, help me so much
We can cure eachother's sorrow
Won't you please, please, please get in touch

If our love is strong enough, it may never end
Why would I pretend, to fall, woo-ew

Anyway, Anyway, you can make, that call
You feel free, to make yourself, at home - woh-oh, ahhhhhh

Anyway, Anyway, Anyway, at all
Anyway, you can make that call

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #125 We're open tonight



Depois de uma longa ausência, duas músicas em um medley dos Wings: We´re open tonight e To You.

We're Open Tonight
Paul McCartney

We're open tonight for fun
So bring all your friends, come on.
We're open tonight, come one, come all.
We're opening all our doors,
We're clearing back all the floors.
We're open tonight, come one, come all.
Ooh. Whoo.
Come one, come all.

To You
Paul McCartney

Well if the same thing happened to you
Would you still put me through what you put me through?
If it happened to you. What if it happened to you?

What if it happened a man kept shaking you down
But you can't get a ride to his side of town?
If it happened to you. What if it happened to you?

What if happened to you? Keep it out of my shoes.
And if you're stepping on toes, keep it outta my nose.

'Cos if the same thing happened to me
Well, it won't be as bad as it used to be.
If it happened toyou. What if it happened to you?
What if it happened to you?
What if it happened to you?
What if it happened to you, too?

What if it happens to you?
What if it happens to you?

What if happens to you? Keep it out of my shoes.
and if you're stepping on toes, keep it outta my nose.


'Cos if the same thing happened to me
Well, it won't be as bad as it used to be.
If it happened to you. What if it happened to you?
What if it happened to you?
What am I going to do?
What if it happened to you?
Well, what if happened to you?

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #124 All Shook Up



Paul e outros dinossauros do rock interpretando uma clássica do rei Elvis: All Shook Up.

All Shook Up
Blackwell/Presley

A well I bless my soul
What's wrong with me?
I'm itching like a man on a fuzzy tree
My friends say I'm actin' wild as a bug
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

My hands are shaky and my knees are weak
I can't seem to stand on my own two feet
Who do you thank when you have such luck?
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

Please don't ask me what's on my mind
I'm a little mixed up, but I'm feelin' fine
When I'm near that girl that I love best
My heart beats so it scares me to death!

She touched my hand what a chill I got
Her lips are like a vulcano that's hot
I'm proud to say she's my buttercup
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

My tongue get tied when I try to speak
My insides shake like a leaf on a tree
There's only one cure for this body of mine
That's to have the girl that I love so fine!

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #123 Kicked Around No More



Uma balada bonita do disco Off The Ground. Pena que não tem videoclipe. E que não estou conseguindo postar todo dia. :(

Kicked Around No More
Paul McCartney

Take my blessings with you when you go,
I don't wanna know no more.
Head to toe, from top to bottom
I've been kicked around,
Don't wanna be kicked around no more

I'll be thinking of you when you go,
Take a walk along the shore.
Why should I pretend that nothing is the matter now?
Don't wanna be kicked around no more

My life could be so sweet,
I can't remember when I started running.
The water underneath the bridge can't keep a secret,
She's still running home.

Take my blessing with you when you go,
To the next one you adore, ooh.
Head to toe, from top to bottom
I've been kicked around,
Ain't gonna be kicked around no more

Don't wanna be kicked around,
Ain't gonna be kicked around,
Don't wanna be kicked around no more.

My life could be so sweet,
I can't remember when I started running.
The water underneath the bridge can't keep a secret,
I'm not running now.

Take my blessing with you when you go,
I don't wanna know no more.
Head to toe, from top to bottom
I've been kicked around,
Don't wanna be kicked around no more

Don't wanna be kicked around,
Ain't gonna be kicked around,
Don't wanna be kicked around no more.

Wo Wo Wo.

Want Horse, I Want Sheep,
I Want To Get Me A Good Night's Sleep,

In The Heart Of The Country.

L'm Gonna Go, I'm Gonna Go,
L'm Gonna Tell Everyone I Know
Livin' In A Home
In The Heart Of The Country.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #121 Golden Earth Girl



Uma linda música do disco Off The Ground, Golden Earth Girl. Infelizmente não tem vídeo, mas só o áudio é maravilhoso.

Golden Earth Girl
Paul McCartney

Smiles At The Sky Watching The Sunset
From A Mossy Nest.

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #120 Mamunia



Mamunia é uma das músicas do Band On The Run. Muito legal, assim como o vídeo, uma animação no estilo do Yellow Submarine. Gosto da letra também - um jeito legal de ver a chuva. Aliás, ontem, foi como encarei a chuva com a minha filha. Saímos de capa e galochas pulando poças e nos divertindo com a água. Muito bom voltar a ser criança ao lado dela.

Mamunia
Paul McCartney

Mamunia mamunia mamunia
Oh oh oh
Mamunia mamunia oh oh oh oh

The rain comes falling from the sky,
To fill the stream that fills the sea
And that's where life began for you and me

So the next time you see rain it ain't bad,
Don't complain it rains for you,
The next time you see l.a. Rainclouds,
Don't complain it rains for you and me

Mamunia mamunia mamunia
Oh oh oh
Mamunia mamunia oh oh oh oh

It might have been a bright blue day
But rainclouds had to come this way
They're watering everything that they can see.

A seed is waiting in the earth
For rain to come and give him free,
So the next time you see l.a. Rainclouds
Don't complain, it rains for you.

So lay down your umbrellas
Strip off your plastic macs.
You've never felt the rain my friend,
Till you've felt it running down your back

So the next time you see rain, it ain't bad
Don't complain, it rains for you.
The next time you see l.a. Rainclouds
Don't complain it rains for you and me.

Mamunia mamunia mamunia
Oh oh oh
Mamunia mamunia oh oh oh

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #119 Singing the Blues



Mais uma música do Unplugged, um blues maravilhoso: Singing the Blues.

Singing The Blues
Paul McCartney

Well, I never felt more like singing the blues
And I never thought
that I'd ever lose your love
Why did you do me this way?
Well, I never felt more like crying all night
Everything's wrong
But nothing is right without you
You've got me singing the blues
Well, the moon and the stars no longer shine
The dream is gone I thought was mine
There's nothing left for me to do
But cry-i-i-i over you
Cry over you
Well, I never felt more like running away
And why shouldn't I go
'Cause I couldn't stay without you
You've got me singing the blues.
Well, the moon and the stars no longer shine
The dream is gone I thought was mine
There's nothing left for me to do
But cry-i-i-i over you
Cry over you
Well, I never felt more like running away
And why shouldn't I go
'Cause I couldn't stay without you
You've got me singing the blues
(Mr. Paul Wiggins, Come on Paul)
Well, the moon and the stars no longer shine
The dream is gone I thought was mine
There's nothing left for me to do
But cry-i-i-i over you
Cry over you
Well, I never felt more like running away
And why shouldn't I go
'Cause I couldn't stay without you
You've got me singing the blues
You've got me singing the blues
You've got me singing the blues, ooh

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #118 House of Wax



Música de 2007, do disco Memory Almost Full. Gosto muito do piano e da melodia.

House of Wax
Paul McCartney

Lightning hits the house of wax
Poets spill out on the street
To set alight the incomplete
Remainders of the future

Hidden in the yard. Hidden in the yard.

Thunder drowns the trumpets blast
Poets scatter through the night
But they can only dream of flight
Away from their confusion

Hidden in the yard. Undemeath the wall
Buried deep below a thousand layers lay
The answer to it all

Lightning hits the house of wax
Woman scream and run around
To dance upon the battleground
Like wild demented horses

Hidden in the yard. Undemeath the wall
Buried deep below a thousand layers lay
The answer to it all

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #117 Ever Present Past



Este vídeo é engraçado, com uma coreografia meio desengonçada do Paul.

Ever Present Past
Paul McCartney

I've got too much on my plate
Don't have no time to be a decent lover
I hope it isn' too late
Searching for the time that has gone so fast
The time that I thought would last
My ever present past

I've got too much on my mind
I think of every thing to be discovered
I hope there's something to find
Searching for the time that has gone so fast
The time that I thought would last
My ever present past

But things I think I did
I do, I think I did
But the things I think I did
When I was a kid

I couldn't understand a word that they were saying
But still I hung around and took it all in
I wouldn't join them in the games that they were playing
It went by, it went by
in a flash
It flew by, it flew by
in a flash

Ther's far too much on my plate
Don't have no time to be a decent lover
I hope it's never too late
Searching for the time that has gone so fast
The time that I thought would last
My ever present past

For things I think I did
I do, I think I did
The things I think I did when I was a kid

Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #116 Too Much Rain



Mais uma do Chaos and Creation, realmente um disco especial: Too Much Rain.

Too Much Rain
Paul McCartney

Laugh, when your eyes are burning
Smile, when your heart is filled with pain

Sigh, as you brush away your sorrow
Make a vow, that's it's not going to happen again

It's not right, in one life
Too much rain

You, know the wheels keep turning
Why, do the tears run down your face

We, use to hide away our feelings
But for now, tell yourself it won't happen again

It's not right, in one life
Too much rain

It's too much for anyone, Too hard for anyone
Who wants a happy and peaceful life
You've gotta learn to laugh

(guitar solo)
Smile, when your spinning round and round
Sigh, as you think about tomorrow
Make a vow, that your gonna be happy again

It's all right, in your life
No more rain

It's too much for anyone, Too hard for anyone
Who wants a happy and peaceful life
You've gotta learn to laugh
