Paroles de la chanson Papa won't you leave henry par Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

I went out walking the other day
The heat hung wet around my neck
My head it rung with screams and groans
From the night I spent amongst her bones
And I passed beside the mission house
Where that mad old buzzard, the reverend
Shrieked and flapped about life after your dead
Well, I thought about my friend, Michel
How they rolled him in linoleum
And shot him in the neck
A bloody halo, like a think-bubble
Circling his head
And I bellowed at the firmament
Looks like the rains are here to stay
And the rain pissed down upon me
And washed me all away

Saying:

Papa won't leave you, Henry
Papa won't leave you, Boy
Papa won't leave you, Henry
Papa won't leave you, Boy
Well, the road is long
And the road is hard
And a many fall by the side
But Papa won't leave you, Henry
So there ain't no need to cry

And I went on down the road
(He went on down the road)
Oh yeah, I went on down the road
(He went on down the road)

Well, the moon it looked exhausted

Like something you should pity
Spent an age spotted
Above the sizzling wires of the city
Well, it reminded me of her face
And her bleached and hungry eyes
Her hair was like a curtain
Falling open with the laughter
And closing with the lies
And the ghost of her still lingers on
Though she's passed through me
And is gone
Well the slum dogs, they are barking
And the rain children on the streets
And the tears that we will weep today
Will all be washed away
By the tears we weep today, we'll weep again tomorrow


Papa won't leave you, Henry
Papa won't leave you, Boy
Papa won't leave you, Henry
Papa won't leave you, Boy
Well the road is long
And the road is hard
And a many fall by the side
Well Papa won't leave you, Henry
So there ain't no need to cry

And I went on down the road
(He went on down the road)
Oh yeah, I went on down the road
(He went on down the road)

And I came upon a little house
A little house upon a hill
And I entered through and the curtain hissed

Into the house with its blood-red bowels
Where wet-lipped women with greasy fists
Crawled the ceilings and the walls
And they filled me full of drink
And they led me round the rooms
Naked and cold and grinning
Until everything went black
And I came down spinning
I awoke so drunk and full of rage
That I could hardly speak
A fag in a whalebone corset
Draping his dick across my cheek
Well its into the shame
And its into a guilt
And its into the fucking fray
And the walls ran red around me
A warm arterial spray
Saying:


Papa won't leave you, Henry
Papa won't leave you, Boy
Papa won't leave you, Henry
Papa won't leave you, Boy
Well, the night is dark
And the night is deep
And its jaws are open wide
Yeah well, Papa won't leave you, Henry
So there ain't no need to cry

And I went on down the road
(He went on down the road)
Oh yeah,I went on down the road
(He went on down the road)
Yeah, woah, woah (woah, woah, woah, woah)

It's the rainy season where I'm living

Death comes leaping out of every doorway
Wasting you for money, for your clothes
And for your nothing
Entire towns being washed away
Favelas exploding on inflammable spillways
And the lynch-mobs, death squads, babies being born without brains
The mad heats and the relentless rains
Well if you stick your arm into that hole
It comes out sheared off to the bone
And with her kisses bubbling on my lips
I swiped the rain and nearly missed
And then I went on down the road
(He went on down the road)

Papa won't leave you, Henry
Papa won't leave you, Boy
Papa won't leave you, Henry

Papa won't leave you, Boy
Well, the road is long
And the road is hard
And many fall by the side
Well then, Papa won't leave you, Henry
So there ain't no need to cry

And I went on down the road
(He went on down the road)
Oh yeah, I went on down the road
(He went on down the road)

Yeah, bent Beneath my heavy load
(Under his heavy load)
Yeah, I went on down the road
Oh woah ,woah (woah, woah)
Oh woah ,woah (woah, woah)
Yeah, woah ,woah (woah, woah)

And I went on down that road
