Rainin in Paradize

The Rainin in Paradize single from Manu Chao is getting a lot of play on 6music – and so it should, it’s a great track. I know Manu is a controversial figure – shouting about the system and living off it so they say – I can’t deny that he makes brilliant music though.

You can see the track on this video – it’s belting.  Apologies to those who dont like youtube videos on blogs, or who havent got lots of bandwidth… I’m posting it anyhow.

And here’s the lyric:

Welcome to paradise (2x)

Today it's raining (4x) (Welcome to paradise)

Today It's raining (Welcome to paradise) (4x) 

 

 

In Zaire, Was no good place to be

Free world go crazy, it’s an atrocity

 

In Congo, Still no good place to be

They killed Mibali, it’s a calamity

 

Go Maasai go Maasai be mellow, Go Maasai go Maasai be sharp (2x)

 

In Monrovia, this no good place to be

Weapon go crazy, it’s an atrocity

 

In Palestina, too much hypocricy

This world go crazy, it’s no fatality

 

Go Maasai go Maasai be mellow, Go Maasai go Maasai be sharp (2x)

 

Today its raining (4x), in paradise

Today its raining (4x)

 

In Baghdad, it’s no democracy

That’s just because, it’s a US Country

 

In Fallujah, too much calamity

This world go crazy, it’s no fatality

 

Go Maasai go Maasai be mellow, Go Maasai go Maasai be sharp (2x)

 

Today its raining (4x)

 

In Jerusalem, in Monrovia, Guinea-Bissau, today it’s raining (3x)

 

Welcome to paradise, Come to the fairy lies

Welcome to paradise

Today it’s raining (4x) fade out
