3 Day Lyric Challenge – Mew themed (3/3)

mew-bn

Third day of the challenge…

So here are the rules

1 Thank the person who nominated you.
2 Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3 Nominate three other bloggers each day.

I was nominated by Madame Suze directly from Suziland. (Thank you once more, Suze!!) If you don’t know Suze by now, I really don’t see any point in telling you to click on the link to discover her colorful, humorous and Trump despising blog. You’re just doing this on purpose, to annoy me!

(Ok, that’s it for point 1)

As mentionned two days ago, my three posts for this challenge will feature the same (Danish) band: Mew. If you want to read a bit more about the band, you can catch up on what I had to say yesterday, here, or simply ask Google. Google knows the guys very well!

Tonight’s pick is an obvious if you know Mew.

The Zookeeper’s Boy is the first song I heard from the band. And it was enough to get me hooked. It is without a doubt the guys’ most famous song. I am no music expert, and I wouldn’t be bold enough to try to make a serious analysis of it, but for some reason, I feel like it is a cousin of Queens’ Bohemian Rhapsody… I’ll let you be the judge!

 

Enjoy!

 

Are you my lady, are you?
*
If I don’t make it back from the city
Then it is only because I am drawn away
For you see
Evidently there’s a dark storm come
And the chain on my swing is squeeking like a mouse
*
So are you my lady, are you?
The rain, the rain, the rain is falling down
The cars remain
*
You’re tall just like a giraffe
You have to climb to find its head
But if there’s a glitch
You’re an ostrich
You’ve got your head in the sand
*
In a submersible I can hardly breathe
As it takes me inside, so the light sings
Answer me truthfully
Do the clouds kiss you
With meringue-coloured hair
I know they cannot
*
So are you my lady, are you?
The rain, the rain, the rain is falling down
The cars remain
*
Santa Ana winds bring seasickness
Zookeeper hear me out
How dare you go?
Cold in the rain
*
Tall just like a giraffe
You have to climb to find its head
But if there’s a glitch
You’re an ostrich
You’ve got your head in the sand
*
Are you my lady, are you?
The rain, the rain, the rain is falling down
The cars remain
I could not be seen with you
Working half the time and looking fine
In cars re-made

 

 

That covers point 2.   I hope you’ve enjoyed this!

    1. Not at all 🙂 I was about to answer your comment.. I’ll start another round of three tomorrow, with pleasure! I would probably pass on another challenge, if the two nominations were so close, but I really like this one! xx
