Un cantante di blues

Listen!
Listen everybody

I got a sad story
About a boy and a girl
Forced to say farewell
I got a sad story

Look now, ain't she pretty
She's got eight colour rainbows in her hair
Look now ain't she pretty
They made her hair from rainbow
Then comes that guy to yell
Forbidden fruits to sell
Oh what a sad story

The boy can't wait to taste 'em
He feels so happy now
He don't give a damn lookin' for heaven
He's really flyin' high
On a magic carpet floating in the sky
He looks around
His loved one disappeared

Listen everybody
I got a sad story

He's found his love down in Hell City
The king is there beside her:
"You can take your love away from here boy
But she must stay behind you
You don't look back or you'll lose her - and forever
You don't look back - you'll lose her"
He lost her

You've lost her and you'll never know why
You've lost her and you'll never know why
