I Want To Come Home For Christmas
(Marvin Gaye)


‎[1972]‎
Scritta da Kenneth Stover e Marvin Gaye‎
Singolo che la stessa Tamla Motown censurò, rifiutando di includerlo nell’album “Let's Get It On” ‎del 1973.‎
Il brano, in due differenti versioni, lo ritroveremo solo 30 anni dopo nella riedizione “de luxe” di ‎‎“Let's Get It On” (2001).‎

Lets get it on

Un attacco ironico e feroce a Richard Nixon sferrato da Gaye durante la campagna per le ‎presidenziali del 1972. Nixon, presidente uscente, vinse stracciando il candidato democratico ‎McGovern, ma di lì a poco fu travolto dallo “scandalo Watergate”…‎
You've been talkin', talkin' to the people
Tryin' get them to go your way
Tellin' us, not to worry
You say we won't be led astray

So blind, unsignified
Your opponents, some of them always lie
Oh, think about the mistakes you make
I believe, America's at stake

Busin', busin' is the issue
Come on, baby, here's your plan, Mister
Come, if you have a plan
Oh, if you've got a master plan
I got the vote for you, oh
I got the vote for you, you're the man

Oh, we don't wanna hear no lies, no more
How you planned a compromise
Yeah, we want our dollar value increased
And employment to rise, the nation's taxation
Is causin' all, all this inflation

Don't give us no V signs
Then turn around, rob the people blind
Economics is the issue
Come on, baby, here's your plan, Mister
‎'Cause, if you've got a master plan
I got the vote for you
You're the man, oh yeah, oh yeah

Don't you understand?
There's misery in the land
Don't you understand?
There's misery in the land

Don't you understand?
There's misery in the land
Don't you understand?
There's misery in the land
Don't you understand?
There's misery in the land

People marching on Washington
Better hear what they have to say
Because the tables might just turn against you, brother
Set around election day

Politics and hypocrites
Is turning us all into lunatics
Can you take the guns from our sons?
Right all the wrongs this administration has done?

Peace and freedom are the issues
Come on, let me hear your plans, Mister
Oh, 'cause, if you've got the master plan, oh yeah, hey
If you've got the master plan
I got the vote for you, hey babe
I got the vote for you, you're the man, you
