MUSIC : Bigger slump and bigger wars and a smaller recovery

Je connais ce morceau depuis 1997 et la cassette de skate 411vm issue 20, le Profile de Marc Johnson pour être précis. Morceau forcement téléchargé deux ans plus tard via Napster. Mais c'est donc presque 20 ans plus tard que j'écoute enfin les paroles avec attention pour me rendre compte de leur haut degrés de subversion.

#Mieux vaut tard que jamais.
#J'aime me garder des surprise.



Stereolab - Ping Pong (1994)

It's alright 'cos the historical pattern has shown
how the economical cycle tends to revolve
in a round of decades three stages stand out in a loop
a slump and war then peel back to square one and back for more

bigger slump and bigger wars and a smaller recovery
huger slump and greater wars and a shallower recovery

you see the recovery always comes 'round again
there's nothing to worry for things will look after themselves
it's alright recovery always comes 'round again
there's nothing to worry if things can only get better

there's only millions that lose their jobs and homes and sometimes accents
there's only millions that die in their bloody wars, it's alright

it's only their lives and the lives of their next of kin that they are losing
it's only their lives and the lives of their next of kin that they are losing

it's alright 'cos the historical pattern has shown
how the economical cycle tends to revolve
in a round of decades three stages stand out in a loop
a slump and war then peel back to square one and back for more

bigger slump and bigger wars and a smaller recovery
huger slump and greater wars and a shallower recovery

don't worry be happy things will get better naturally
don't worry shut up sit down go with it and be happy

dum, dum, dum, de dum dum, de duh de duh de dum dum dum... ah ah
dum, dum, dum, de dum dum, de duh de duh de dum dum dum... ah ah
