“Do It Again”

In the mornin you go gunnin’
For the man who stole your water
And you fire till he is done in
But they catch you at the border
And the mourners are all sangin’
As they drag you by your feet
But the hangman isn’t hangin’

And they put you on the street

You go back, Jack, do it again
Wheel turnin’ ‘round and ‘round
You go back, Jack, do it again

When you know she’s no high climber
Then you find your only friend
In a room with your two timer
And you’re sure you’re near the end
Then you love a little wild one
And she brings you only sorrow
All the time you know she’s smilin’
You’ll be on your knees tomorro
w

You go back, Jack, do it again
Wheel turnin’ ‘round and ‘round
You go back, Jack, do it again

Now you swear and kick and beg us
That you’re not a gamblin’ man
Then you find you’re back in Vegas
With a handle in your hand
Your black cards can make you money
So you hide them when you’re able
In the land of milk and honey
You must put them on the table

You go back, Jack, do it again
Wheel turnin’ ‘round and ‘round
You go back, Jack, do it again

Lo specchio ti riflette

” Lo specchio ti riflette “

C’è una riva per ogni mare 
un mare per ogni riva 
una favola a lieto fine 
una storia cattiva 
C’è una musica che comincia 
Una musica che finisce 
c’è un amico quando hai bisogno 
ed un nemico 
che aspetta e ti colpisce

Se capovolgi il mondo 
lo specchio ti riflette 
Se capovolgi il mondo 
lo specchio ti riflette

Hay un poeta tras cada historia 
Con una pena en el alma 
Una puerta en el laberinto 
por dònde el amor se escapa 
un manantial para el que no bebe 
un corazón para el que no sabe amar 
un tren que siempre se detiende 
hay quien sube 
mientras algiuen baja

Le das la vuelta al mundo 
El espejo te delata 
Le das la vuelta al mundo 
El espejo te delata

C’è un desiderio 
Per ogni stella 
Ma alla tua stella 
Non puoi chieder perché 
C’è un orrizonte 
Senza confine 
Ed un confine 
Scritto con il sangue 
Sopra ad un muro

Se capovolgi il mondo 
lo specchio ti riflette 
Se capovolgi il mondo 
lo specchio ti riflette 
Se capovolgi il mondo 
lo specchio ti riflette 
Se capovolgi il mondo 
lo specchio ti riflette

C’è una riva per ogni mare 
Un mare per ogni riva 
C’è una luce per ogni ombra 
che ti segue istintiva 
C’è una strada 
che non conosci 
Un temporale che non aspettavi 
Per ogni dubbio c‘è una porta chiusa 
Per ogni porta le sue chiavi 
(Le sue chiavi)

Se capovolgi il mondo 
lo specchio ti riflette… 
Se capovolgi il mondo 
lo specchio ti riflette…

Piano man

“Piano Man”

It’s nine o’clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There’s an old man sitting next to me
Making love to his tonic and gin

He says, “Son can you play me a memory
I’m not really sure how it goes
But it’s sad and it’s sweet
And I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man’s clothes.”

Sing us a song you’re the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody
And you’ve got us feeling alright

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he’s quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
But there’s someplace that he’d rather be

He says, “Bill, I believe this is killing me.”
As a smile ran away from his face
“Well, I’m sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place.”

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he’s talking with Davy, who’s still in the Navy
And probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes they’re sharing a drink they call “Loneliness”
But it’s better than drinking alone

Sing us a song you’re the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody
And you’ve got us feeling alright

It’s a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
‘Cause he knows that it’s me they’ve been coming to see
To forget about life for a while

And the piano it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, “Man, what are you doing here
?”

Sing us a song you’re the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we’re all in the mood for a melody
And you’ve got us feeling alright

– Billy Joel –

You raise me up

“You Raise Me Up”

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary,
When troubles come and my heart burdened be
Then I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains.
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas.
I am strong when I am on your shoulders.
You raise me up to more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains.
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas.
I am strong when I am on your shoulders.
You raise me up to more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains.
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas.
I am strong when I am on your shoulders.
You raise me up to more than I can be
.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains.
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas.
I am strong when I am on your shoulders.
You raise me up to more than I can be.

You raise me up to more than I can be.

Ipse dixit

C’è una teoria che afferma che, se qualcuno scopre esattamente qual è lo scopo dell’universo e perché è qui, esso scomparirà istantaneamente e sarà sostituito da qualcosa di ancora più bizzarro e inesplicabile. C’è un’altra teoria che dimostra che ciò è già avvenuto.
