Перевод песни The Band – Yazoo Street Scandal

Работает на технологии Яндекс.Переводчика
Standin' out in the night
Delilah took me down
To see the widow bring
Rain to the town
It’s against the law
To be a tonic man
But the widow know
She’s got the upper hand
So I went on in
Feelin' kinda wheezy
You know she soothed my mind, boys
She rocked me kinda slow and kinda easy
All day and all night
«Pick a card 'fore you go--
It’s a long trip to Mexico.»
'Lilah waited by the door
«I can’t stay here anymore, no, no.»
Then she took a pill
She washed her feet in the mud
She said «Look out son
You know, I just started a flood
For forty days and forty nights»
Then I got my shoes
And 'Lilah called my name
She said it looked to her
Like it gonna rain
Then the Cotton King
He came in chokin'
And the widow laughed and said:
«I ain’t jokin'--
Think what you want»
She said, «Now don’t ya tease me
I just fell in love, boy
So rock me kinda slow and kinda easy
All day and all night.»
Sweet William said
With a drunken head:
«If I had a boat
I’d help y’all float»
Delilah stood there watching
William in a trance
And the widow seized by the St. Vitus dance
But just then an old man
With a boat named «Breezy»
Said: «You can ride with Clyde, boys
If you rock it kinda slow and kinda easy
All day and all night»
