Charmless Man (by Blur)

Este viernes toma protagonismo la canción Charmless Man del grupo británico Blur. Esta canción también pudimos verla en la actuación de Blur en el Primavera Sound 2013 - Crónica del Viernes (by Emeshing.com).

Charmless Man (by Blur) - original vídeo



La letra de la canción Charmless Man es la siguiente:

I met him in a crowded room
where people go to drink away their gloom
he sat me down and o began
the story of a charmless man
Educated the expensive wa
he knows his claret from his beaujolais
i think he's like to have been ronnie kray
but then nature didn't make him that way
He went 'na na na na na na na'
'na na na na na na na na na'
He thinks his educated airs, those family shares
will protect him, that we'll respect him
he moves in circles of friends, who just pretend that they like him, he does the same to them
and when you put it all together there's the model of a charmless man
( na na...)
He knows the swingers and their cabaret
says he can get in anywhere for free
i began to go a little cross-eyed
and from this charmless man i just had to hide
He went 'na na na na na na na'
'na na na na na na na na na'
He talks at speed, he gets nosebleeds,
he doesn't see his days are tumbling, down upon him,
and yet he tries so hard to please, he's just so keen for you to listen, but no-one's listening
and when you put it all together there's the model of a charmless man
(na na..)
He thinks his educated airs, those family shares
will protect him, that we'll respect him
and yet he tries so hard to please, he's just so keen for you to listen, but no-one's listening
and when you put it all together there's the model of a charmless man
(na na..)
