Illegal Smile



Illegal Smile

When I woke up this morning, things were lookin' bad
Seem like total silence was the only friend I had
Bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down... and won
And it was twelve o'clock before I realized
That I was havin' ... no fun

Chorus:
But fortunately I have the key to escape reality
And you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
It don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while
Won't you please tell the man I didn't kill anyone
No I'm just tryin' to have me some fun

Last time I checked my bankroll,
It was gettin' thin
Sometimes it seems like the bottom
Is the only place I've been
I Chased a rainbow down a one-way street... dead end
And all my friends turned out to be insurance salesmen

Repeat Chorus:

Well, I sat down in my closet with all my overalls
Tryin' to get away
From all the ears inside my walls
I dreamed the police heard
Everything I thought... what then?
Well I went to court
And the judge's name was Hoffman

Ah but fortunately I have the key to escape reality
And you may see me tonight with an illegal smile
It don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while
Won't you please tell the man I didn't kill anyone
No I'm just tryin' to have me some fun
Well done, hot dog bun, my sister's a nun

Adoro a los Coen. Esta peli esta muy bien, sin ser de las mejores suyas.

Hasta otra, voy a tomarme un "ruso blanco"...

ROCKLAND dijo...

Los blue chieftains no los controlo pero la peli me gustó en su día.

Los Coen son un valor seguro!

Me pasa como a Rockland, la peli mola un monto como casi todo de los Cohen, el tema o mas bien la banda no la controlo para nada!

Al contrario que en los comentarios anteriores, a mi me ocurre al revés. Aún no he visto la pelicula, pero conocía al grupo y creo que con este tema demuestran todo su potencial.
Un saludo compañero.

Perem dijo...

Pues yo soy de los que si conocen bien la obra de los Coen, pero de estos señores, nada de nada.

Un saludo.
