Soundtracks - La Vie Boheme [A] текст песни

Who died?

Our Akita


You make fun yet I'm the one
Attempting to do some good
Or do you really want a neighborhood
Where people piss on your stoop every night?
Bohemia, Bohemia's
A fantasy in your head
This is Calcutta
Bohemia is dead

Dearly beloved we gather here to say our goodbyes

Dies irae dies illa
Kyrie eleison
Yitgadal v' yitkadash, etc.

Here she lies
No one knew her worth
The late great daughter of mother earth
On this night when we celebrate the birth
In that little town of Bethlehem
We raise our glass- you bet your ass to-
La vie Boheme

La vie Boheme
La vie Boheme
La vie Boheme
La vie Boheme

To days of inspiration
Playing hookie, making something out of nothing
The need to express
To communicate,
To going against the grain,
Going insane
Going mad

To loving tension, no pension
To more than one dimension,
To starving for attention,
Hating convention, hating pretension
Not to mention of course,
Hating dear old mom and dad

To riding your bike,
Midday past the three- piece suits
To fruits to no absolutes
To Absolut- to choice
To the Village Voice
To any passing fad
To being an us-for once-, instead of a them -

La vie Boheme
La vie Boheme


Hey Mister- she's my sister

So that's five miso soup, four seaweed salad
Three soy burger dinner, two tofu dog platter
And one pasta with meatless balls


It tastes the same

If you close your eyes

And thirteen orders of fries
Is that it here?

Wine and beer!

To hand-crafted beers made in local breweries
To yoga, to yogurt, to rice and beans and cheese
To leather, to dildos, to curry vindaloo
To huevos rancheros and Maya Angelou

Emotion, devotion, to causing a commotion
Creation, vacation

Mucho masturbation

Compassion, to fashion, to passion when it's new

To Sontag

To Sondheim

To anything taboo

Ginsberg, Dylan, Cunningham and Cage

Lenny Bruce

Langston Hughes

To the stage

To Uta

To Buddha

Pablo Neruda, too

Why Dorothy and Toto went over the rainbow
To blow off Auntie Em

La vie Boheme


We're close


Bisexuals, trisexuals, homo sapiens,
Carcinogens, hallucinogens, men, Pee Wee Herman
German wine, turpentine, Gertrude Stein
Antonioni, Bertolucci, Kurosawa
Carmina Burana

To apathy, to entropy, to empathy, ecstasy
Vaclav Havel - The Sex Pistols, 8BC,
To no shame - never playing the Fame Game

To marijuana

To sodomy,
It's between God and me
To S & M


La vie Boheme

In honor of the death of Bohemia an impromptu salon will commence
immediately following dinner
Maureen Johnson, just back from her spectacular one-night engagement at the
eleventh street lot,
Will preform native american tribal chants backwards through her vocoder,
While accompanying herself on the electric cello
Which she ain't never studied

And Mark Cohen will preview his new documentary about his inability to hold an
erection on the high holy days

And Mimi Marquez, clad only in bubble wrap, will perform her famous lawn
chair-handcuff dance to the sounds of iced tea being stirred
and ROGER will attempt to write a bittersweet, evocative song
That doesn't remind us of "Musetta's Waltz"

ANGEL Dumott Schunard will now model the latest fall fashions from Paris
While accompanying herself on the 10 gallon plastic pickle tub

And COLLINS will recount his exploits as anarchist
Including the successful reprogramming of the M.I.T. virtual reality equipment
To self-destruct, as it broadcasts the words:

"Actual reality -- Act Up -- Fight AIDS"

Excuse me did I do something wrong?
I get invited then ignored all night long

I've been trying I'm not lying
No one's perfect I've got baggage

Life's too short, babe, time is flying
I'm looking for baggage that goes with mine

I should tell, you-

I've got baggage too

I should tell you

Baggage - wine

And beer!

AZT break


Me , You?
