En un barco a punto de zarpar...

Me gusta robarle los ipods a mis hermanos porque siempre encuentro cosas que no sabía que buscaba. En este caso el Monkiki me ha dado esta rola que de entrada es como un son huasteco de réplicas entre Pedro Infante y... el otro que no recuerdo cómo se llamaba.
Pero imagino que un día apenas subir a un barco y a punto de zarpar estaré con un amigo también migrante, con un par de cervezas escurriendo y como esa escena de In the Name of the Father, cuando Gerry Conlon zarpa rumbo a Londres y desentona con su amigo Like a Rolling Stone, de Bob Dylan, escucharemos esta rola sin dedicatoria en especial...

I've been so happy since I walked away
I never thought that I could
Feel as great as I do today
Cos you were nothing but a big mistake
And life is wonderful, now that I'm rid of you

Oh I must've been crazy to have stayed with you
I can't believe I thought I was in love with you
But now the scales have fallen I can really see
And I say go to hell, cos that's where you took me

Well, I've felt better since I slammed that door
You always cramped my style, I never noticed before
It's been a non-stop party since I flew the coop
I can't believe I fell for such a loser like you

And is it any wonder that I felt so blue
When I was always having to put up with you

Oh, here we go again, just lay the blame on me
Don't say another word, cos sweetheart, you're history

I bet you're alone every minute
and you're sitting in the kitchen
eating meager meals with the curtains closed.
Come on
I don't give a damn, anyway.

I know that you miss me really, bet you wish that you still had me
You'll never find someone like me but I've got no regrets at all

Cos I've met this girl and she's so good to me
She's really beautiful, fantastic company
Oh, when I'm with her I realise what love can be
Cos she's fifty times the person you will ever be

Good luck, mister, do you think I care?
Since you've been gone the offers have been everywhere
I've got a million guys just lining up for me
I've turned a corner, boy, my life is ecstasy

Well, I've been in heaven since I walked away
I never thought that I could feel as great as I do today
Cos you were nothing but a waste of space
And life is wonderful, now that I'm over you ...
