Heathen child - Grinderman



Mijn favoriete artiest, Nick Cave, is terug met Grinderman, waarin hij helemaal loos kan gaan met bluesrock op z'n rauwst, zoals hij dat in zijn begindagen ook al deed met The Birthday Party. Op het tweede album, toepasselijk Grinderman 2, haalt hij weer grommend uit, mét een dosis humor. En dat merk je ook aan deze eerste single...

Je kan het album hier kopen. Op de website krijg je, als je je inschrijft op de nieuwsbrief, trouwens de radio edit van het nummer gratis en voor niets !

Heathen child (radio edit) (mp3)

Lyrics :

Hey little momo
Light as a rainbow
Heavy as an asteroid
Crashed in the bathtub


Yeah, sitting in the bathtub
Hair full of her fingers
Hair full of her fingers


Yeah, sitting in the bathtub
Says: "I'm scared and lonely"
Sweet little momo says:
"I'm scared and lonely"


Here come the wolfman
Hey little momo
Saying, "hey little momo"
Saying, "hey little momo"
Sitting in the bathtub


My heathen child
She's a heathen child
Yeah, she's a heathen child
Yeah, she's a real wild child


She got a little powder
She got a little gun
She got a little poison
Got a little gun
Sitting in the bathtub
Sucking her thumb


Says: "I don't care about Buddha
Don't care about Krishna
Don't care about Allah
Don't care about anything"
Just sitting in the bathtub,
Sucking her thumb...


Cuz, she's a heathen child
Yeah, she's a heathen child
Now, she's a heathen child


Yeah, she's a real wild child


[yeah... yeah, come on baby]


Oh, poor little momo
Yeah, paddled and rowed
She's got a little powder
Got a little gun
Sitting in the bathtub
Having some fun


She was raised by beasts and grabbed by vultures
Oh, here come the wolfman
The abominable snowman
Got a little poison
Got a little gun
Sitting in her bathtub
Waiting for the wolfman to come


You think your great big husband will protect you, you are wrong
You think your little wife will protect you, you are wrong
You think your children will protect you, you are wrong
You think your government will protect you, you are wrong


She don't care about Allah
She is the Allah
Don't care about Buddha
She is the Buddha


Coz, she's a heathen child
Yeah, she's a heathen child
She's a heathen child
She's a heathen child


[Yeah, someone left the bathtub running
someone left the bathtub running]
