The lyrics of that song
I've received quite a few requests for the lyrics to "democracy, whisky, sexy." If you're interested in that sort of thing, allow me to direct you to Captain Mojo, who has posted the lyrics as written, and also with interlinear chords ("tabs" as the kids call them.) Don't hurt yourself...
UPDATE: I guess posting the lyrics was a good idea. I just got an email from a young lady who said she could really relate to the line that goes "I think I understand and know while I was gettin' high..." That's not actually how it goes.
Maybe she was kidding. You never know. But people hear all sorts of things in lyrics. I have this song called "Sackcloth and Ashes." For many kids, hearing this song is the first time they have ever heard this phrase, and they sometimes have to struggle a bit to understand it. Often, they project their own, er, concerns on to the title. I remember one guy enthusiastically telling me "I really love the song that goes 'suck cock and asses.'" When I stopped giggling, I forwarded the suggestion to my friend Jon from Pansy Division, thinking they might be able to do something with it. I don't think they ever did. Do anything with the song, I mean.
I often like my own mis-heard lyrics better than the real ones. After thinking for quite awhile that Tim from Rancid had been singing "I had a dream I had a midget inside me" on that one song, I was pretty disappointed when I learned the truth. Because I often have dreams about my inner midget, so I could relate...Posted by Dr. Frank at April 24, 2003 11:09 PM | TrackBack
