Prefab Sprout – Music Is A Princess

Prefab Sprout, o para ser más exacto su “frontman”, Paddy McAloon ha sido siempre unos de mis favoritos. Algunos de sus discos, “Steve McQueen” (“Two Wheels Good” en USA) o “Jordan The Comeback”, se encuentran entre esos oasis a los que suelo volver cuando no se donde apagar mi sed de música. Leí una vez que Paddy McAloon es uno de los compositores más infravalorados de las últimas decadas y puede que sea así, el “soplo” de hoy refuerza esa teoría. “Music Is A Princess” es para mi la estrella de un disco, “Let’s Change the World with Music”, que incomprensiblemente se pasó 17 años esperando ser editado y es el homenaje del gran Paddy a su gran pasión, la música. Una canción que en mi primera escucha se convirtió en un clásico instántaneo y que ya no ha salido de mi cabeza.

Music is a Princess

Music is a princess

I’m just a boy, in rags

I would gladly spend my life

carrying her flags

From the first time I heard her

the sound of her voice

and her beauty completely bewitched me,

I was lost then and there

I was given no choice

ever since, there’s been no peace for me.

You see,

music is a princess

I’m just a nobody

who’d gladly give his life

for her majesty.

If in dying I’d move her or make her heart stir

if I thought for one moment I’d be missed…

but extravagant gestures are wasted on her

she’s a princess, I’m Oliver Twist.

Music is a princess

I’m just a boy, in rags

I’d gladly spend my life

carrying her bags

If their weight is much greater than I first supposed

I’d remember my oath of allegiance

true love is a monarch who won’t be deposed,

treason hasn’t a chance.

Music is a princess

I’m just a boy, in raaa-aags

Music is a princess

I will remain unknown,

falling asleep at night

dreaming of her throne

But her jewels are brighter than my eyes can bear

and although she is something to die for,

I do not have the slipper she’s waiting to wear

so my dreams remain dreams nothing more.

Her jewels are brighter than my eyes can bear

yes, she is something to die for,

but I don’t have the slipper she’s waiting to wear

I’m a boy dressed in rags at her door.

Music is a princess

I’m just a boy, in raaaaaags

In raa-aaaa-aags

In rags
