《That Was Your Mother》歌詞:byPaul Simon mp3歌詞


A long time ago, yeah

Before you was born dude

When I was still single

And life was great

I held this job as a traveling salesman

That kept me moving from state to state

Well, I’m standing on the corner of Lafayette

State of Louisiana

Wondering where a city boy could go

To get a little conversation

Drink a little red wine

Catch a little bit of those Cajun girls

Dancing to Zydeco

Along come a young girl

She’s pretty as a prayerbook

Sweet as an apple on Christmas day

I said good gracious can this be my luck

If that’s my prayerbook

Lord let us pray

Well, I’m standing on the corner of Lafayette

State of Louisiana

Wondering where a city boy could go

To get her in a conversation

Drink a little red wine

Dance to the music of Clifton Chenier

The King of the Bayou

Well, that was your mother

And that was your father

Before you was born dude

When life was great

You are the burden of my generation

I sure do love you

But let’s get that straight

Well, I’m standing on the corner of Lafayette

Across the street from The Public

Heading down to the Lone Star Cafe

Maybe get a little conversation

Drink a little red wine

Standing in the shadow of Clifton Chenier

Dancing the night away
