IndegueEEeeto

Oblideu l'Elvis. La millor versió de "In the Getto" que mai heu sentit, la del Príncipe Gitano. Quin sentiment... quina pronúncia...
Ho sento però no me n'he pogut estar...



Aquí us deixo la lletra. Seguiu-la mentre escolteu la cançó. Espectacular.

IN THE GHETTO

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray chicago mornin
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
cause if theres one thing that she dont need
Its another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, dont you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or hell grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
Are we too blind to see,
Do we simply turn our heads
And look the other way

Well the world turns
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
And he learns how to steal
And he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation
A young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car,
Tries to run, but he dont get far
And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers round an angry young man
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto

As her young man dies,
On a cold and gray chicago mornin,
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto

Sense paraules. De fet més o menys aquest seria el meu anglès. Això sí, amb accent de la Garrotxa

Per si vols practicar, et deixo la transcripció de la lletra versió Príncipe. Per fer un karaoke o així:
