❝ She’s cutting something nearly every day
The landed gentry back her all the way
And something’s happened in the U.S. of A
The phones are ringing – there’ll be hell to pay
Got no time to dream
It’s a blue wave, it’s a blue wave
And it’s “Here comes Mr. Clean!”
It’s a blue wave
Washing, washing, washing all over you
This is the moment when the dancing stops
But does it really have to be this way?
They’re lining up along the eastern bloc
And none of us have really got a say
Well have you ever met a Russian kid?
(I can’t remember if I have or not)
And would you have to kill him if you did?
Cause that could be the only chance you’ve got ❞
As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!
* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
