Screamin' Jay Hawkins - Portrait of a Man

Антропологическая песня. Интересное у него имя: Крикливая Сойка Ястребова. Оказывается, Хокинз был не только гениальный вокалист, композитор и трикстер, но и мыслитель. Нарисовал явственный портрет Параклитеса. А вот тот, кто оформлял ролик - не из таких, не из таких... Но сносить всё равно не нужно - вполне сносно, всё ровно. Не утруждайте себя и вешатели, и висельники - пусть себе висит.



I am painting in oil, a portrait of a man
Who has taken all the heart aches,
And all the pain he can stand.
I am using all the colors of blue,
I have here on my stand.
I am painting in oil, a portrait of a man.
I can tell he is dying. I see death in his eyes.
Oh yes I know, I know when he's crying
'Tis my tears, my tears that he cries.
I am so tired of how he feels inside,
I mix the paint with my hand.
I am painting in oil, a portrait of a man.
As I paint a wrinkled brow and hair that is turning grey,
Oh tell me how, how can I paint a smile
And eyes that keep turning away?
I am using all the colors of blue
I have here on my stand.
I am painting in oil, a portrait and I'm the man.
A portrait and I am the man.
