Don't think twice it's all right

Bob Dylan

It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don't matter, anyhow
An' it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don't know by now
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm trav'lin' on
Don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
That light I never knowed
An' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road
Still I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did too much talkin' anyway
So don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
Like you never did before
It ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
I can't hear you any more
I'm a-thinkin' and a-wond'rin' all the way down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I'm told
I give her my heart but she wanted my soul
But don't think twice, it's all right

I'm walkin' down that long, lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye's too good a word, gal
So I'll just say fare thee well
I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's all right

Venham Mais Cinco

Zeca Afonso

Voltar ao vídeo | Voltar ao topo

Venham mais cinco, duma assentada que eu pago já
Do branco ou tinto, se o velho estica eu fico por cá
Se tem má pinta, dá-lhe um apito e põe-no a andar
De espada à cinta, já crê que é rei d'aquém e além-mar

Não me obriguem a vir para a rua
Gritar
Que é já tempo d' embalar a trouxa
E zarpar

Tiriririri buririririri, Tiriririri paraburibaie, 2X
Tiiiiiiiiiiiiii paraburibaie...
Tiriririri buririririri, Tiriririri paraburibaie, 2X

A gente ajuda, havemos de ser mais
Eu bem sei
Mas há quem queira, deitar abaixo
O que eu levantei

A bucha é dura, mais dura é a razão
Que a sustem só nesta rusga
Não há lugar prós filhos da mãe

Não me obriguem a vir para a rua
Gritar
Que é já tempo d' embalar a trouxa
E zarpar

Bem me diziam, bem me avisavam
Como era a lei
Na minha terra, quem trepa
No coqueiro é o rei

A bucha é dura, mais dura é a razão
Que a sustem só nesta rusga
Não há lugar prós filhos da mãe

Não me obriguem a vir para a rua
Gritar
Que é já tempo d'embalar a trouxa
E zarpar

Too much love will kill you

Brian Mae/Queen

Voltar ao vídeo | Voltar ao topo

I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone
For much too long

I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find
Where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind

You're headed for disaster
'cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you
Every time

I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down

How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I'm bound to lose

Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl

And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you
Every time

Too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why

You'd give your life, you'd sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end...
In the end.

Romeo and Juliet

Dire Straits

Voltar ao vídeo | Voltar ao topo

A lovestruck romeo sings a streetsus serenade
Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it?

Juliet says hey its romeo you nearly gimme a heart attack
Hes underneath the window shes singing hey la my boyfriends back
You shouldnt come around here singing up at people like that
Anyway what you gonna do about it ?

Juliet the dice were loaded from the start
And I bet and you exploded in my heart
And I forget the movie song
When you wanna realise it was just that the time was wrong juliet ?

Come up on differents streets they both were streets of shame
Both dirty both mean yes and the dream was just the same
And I dreamed your dream for you and your dream is real
How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals?

Where you can fall for chains of silver you can fall for chains of gold
You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
You promised me everything you promised me think and thin
Now you just says oh romeo yeah you know I used to have a scene with him

Juliet when we made love you used to cry
You said I love you like the stars above Ill love you till I die
Theres a place for us you know the movie song
When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong juliet?

I cant do the talk like they talk on tv
And I cant do a love song like the way its meant to be
I cant do everything but Id do anything for you
I cant do anything except be in love with you

And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
All do is keep the beat and bad company
All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
Julie Id do the stars with you any time

Juliet when we made love you used to cry
You said I love you like the stars above Ill love you till I die
Theres a place for us you know the movie song
When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong juliet?

A lovestruck romeo sings a streetsus serenade
Laying everybody low with me a lovesong that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it?
