Regina Spektor – Ballad of a Politician/Lovable Dictator live at Other Music, NYC [02/09]


 

This post is dedicated to the most costly, and worthless fight for power over the war on American society, and to the next lovable dictator!: In short Elections 2012 _ “You can’t fool billion of people all the time!”

A man inside a room is shaking hands with other men
This is how it happens
Our carefully laid plans

Shake it, shake it baby
Shake your ass out in that street
You’re gonna make us scream someday
You’re gonna make it big

You love so deep, so tender
Your people and your land
You love ’em ’till they can’t recall
Who they are again

Work it, work it baby
Work your way ’round that room
You’re gonna make it big some day
You’re gonna make a boom

But I am
But I am
But I am not a number, not a name

But I am
But I am
But I am a carefully laid plan

Shake what your mama gave you
You know that it won’t last
You’re gonna taste the ground real soon
You’re gonna taste the grass

A man inside a room is shaking hands with other men
This is how it happens
Our world under command

Shake it, shake it baby
Shake your ass out in that street
You’re gonna make us scream someday
You’re gonna make us weak

You’re gonna make us scream someday
You’re gonna make it big

Samson, by Regina Spektor

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
He ate a slice of wonder bread, and went right back to bed
And history books forgot about us and the Bible didn’t mention us
And the Bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin’ on our heads
But they’re just old light, they’re just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful, and came into my bed
Oh, I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
And he told me that I’d done alright
And kissed me till the mornin’ light, the mornin’ light
And he kissed me till the mornin’ light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonder bread, and went right back to bed
Oh, we couldn’t bring the columns down
Yeah, we couldn’t destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the Bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first
