«Can’t Sing Straight», Teddy Thompson

Una melodía simple que se repite y acumulación de instrumentos y ráfagas «in crescendo» hasta llegar al paroxismo de las trompetas y los instrumentos de viento. Nada nuevo bajo el sol. Pero como hilo conductor la voz correctísima y exenta de pasión de un cantante country que canta poco más que mascullando. El resultado, vitaminante y mineralizante.

CAN’T SING STRAIGHT

I been drinking so much I can’t sing straight
Better hope that it’s not too late
To save the only thing that I’ve ever had
It was here in my own two hands

Maybe it’s good, maybe it’s fine,
Maybe I’ll learn to walk the line

It’s been a very short run I must object
You’re not really gonna take it away just yet
I need ten more years to get to good
I just did what I thought I could (get away with)

Maybe it’s good, maybe it’s fine,
Maybe I’ll learn to walk the line

I was an ugly kid with an ugly name
Never had much of a wild side to tame
But I grew up pretty and tall and fine
I just wanted to have my time (have some fun)

Maybe it’s good, maybe it’s fine,
Maybe I’ll learn to walk the line

Give me one more chance to get things right
I wanna put it back the way it was overnight
But a change of ways seems a bit too much
I don’t really want to change my life a such

Maybe it’s good, maybe it’s fine,
Maybe I’ll learn to walk the line
Maybe it’s fine, maybe it’s good,
Maybe it’d message understood

Maybe it’s good, maybe it’s fine,
Maybe I’ll learn to walk the line
