Cover Me With Flowers of Mauve [Elégie Funèbre 2014]
by Gérard Manset
Lyrics and Meaning
Look at this stuff, isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?
Look at this trove, treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Looking around here you'd think
Sure, she's got everything
I've got gadgets and gizmos a plenty
I've got whozits and whatzits galore
You want thingamabobs? I've got twenty!
But who cares? No big deal,
I want more
I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see them dancing
Walking around on those
What do you call 'em? Oh, feet
Flipping your fins you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumping, dancing
Strolling along down a
What's that word again?
Up where they walk, up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wish I could be, part of that world
What would I give if I could live
Out of these waters?
What would I pay to spend a day
Warm on the sand?
Betcha' on land, they'd understand
Bet they don't reprimand their daughters
Bright young women, sick of swimming
Ready to stand
And ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions
And get some answers
What's a fire and why does it - what's the word?
When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love, love to explore that shore up above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world
What's Your Interpretation?
