I spent the day in bed

Le nouveau single du vénérable Morrissey, avec la musique et les textes duquel j’ai grandi, est de sortie : I spent the day in bed.

 

Musicalement, c’est pas ce que j’écoute en ce moment comme on dit poliment, mais le texte, ha !! Voilà du revigorant, du subversif, et d’ailleurs, je retourne me coucher. (spécial dédicace to E. Macron et ses admirateurs – tiens, en lisant Hérodote, j’ai découvert qu’il existait au temps des perses un peuple d’Asie mineure qu’on appelait les Macrons, si ! Alors évidemment, on se demande pourquoi un type comme moi, qui ferait mieux d’aller chercher un emploi, passe le plus clair de son temps à lire des écrivains grecs, on se demande hein. Ha j’adore cette phrase dans la chanson de Morrisey : « I’m not my type but I love my bed »)

 

[Verse 1]
Spent the day in bed
Very happy I did, yes
I spent the day in bed
As the workers stay enslaved
I spent the day in bed
I’m not my type, but
I love my bed
And I recommend that you

[Chorus]
Stop watching the news!
Because the news contrives to frighten you
To make you feel small and alone
To make you feel that your mind isn’t your own

[Verse 2]
I spent the day in bed
It’s a consolation
When all my dreams
Are perfectly legal
In sheets for which I paid
I am now laid
And I recommend to all of my friends that they

[Chorus]
Stop watching the news!
Because the news contrives to frighten you
To make you feel small and alone
To make you feel that your mind isn’t your own

[Bridge]
Oh time, do as I wish
Time, do as I wish
Oh time, do as I wish
Time, do as I wish
Oh time, do as I wish
Time, do as I wish
Oh time, do as I wish
Do as I wish

[Verse 3]
I spent the day in bed
You can please yourself
But, I spent the day in bed
Pillows like pillars
Life ends in death
So, there’s nothing wrong with
Being good to yourself
Be good to yourself for once!

[Outro]
And no bus, no boss, no rain, no train
No bus, no boss, no rain, no train
No bus, no boss, no rain, no train
No emasculation, no castration
No highway, freeway, motorway
No bus, no boss, no rain, no train
No bus, no boss, no rain, no train
No bus, no boss, no rain, no train
