The Beatles: Happiness Is a Warm Gun (testo canzone)

Artista: The Beatles
Canzone: Happiness Is a Warm Gun
Album: The Beatles (White Album) (1968)

Happiness Is a Warm Gun è una canzone dei Beatles inserita nell’album The Beatles, conosciuto anche come White Album. Il brano è formato da tre temi diversi, particolare che ispirò i Radiohead per la composizione in tre movimenti Paranoid Android sull’album OK Computer del 1997. Dopo la morte violenta di Lennon alcuni aspetti inquietanti ed emblematici di questa sua canzone risaltarono ancora di più (La felicità è una pistola calda nella tua mano). A causa dei suoi presunti riferimenti sessuali e all’uso di droga, la canzone venne bandita dalle trasmissioni della BBC. (it-wikipedia, en-wikipedia)

Happiness Is a Warm Gun

She’s not a girl who misses much
Doo doo doo doo doo doo, oh, yeah
She’s well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand
Like a lizard on a window pain
The man in the crowd with the multicolored mirror on his hobnail boots
Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy working overtime
A soap impression of his wife which he ate and donated to the National Trust

I need a fix cause I’m going down
Down to the bits that I left uptown
I need a fix cause I’m going down

Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun

Happiness is a warm gun
Happiness is a warm gun mama
When I hold you in my arms
And I feel my finger on your trigger
I know nobody can do me no harm
Because happiness is a warm gun
Happiness is a warm gun, yes it is
Happiness is a warm, yes it is, gun
Don’t you know that
Happiness is a warm gun mama
