Rawalpindi Blues

Carla Bley
Language: English



JACK:
You got to give up
What you don’t want
To get what you do.

HIS FRIENDS:
What will we ever do
With you?

JACK & PARROT:
Rawalpindi blues

JACK:
Fountain lions fighting
For the view
Lonelier fish
In hats
Parrots so green
They make the sky seem
Blue.
Look in my eyes.

HIS FRIENDS:
And let me stay away
From you.

JACK & PARROT:
Rawalpindi blues

JACK:
When we were alone
When she’d grab me
By my wishbone
As though
As though it alone
Were real
Ginger’d wish
And we’d win
And the bone
Would come true.

HIS FRIENDS & DESERT WOMEN:
What will we ever do
With you?
What will we ever do
With you?
What will we ever do
With you?

SAND SHEPHERD:
[again]
