84 Hell to Pay

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
De l'album de Deep Purple

Eddie était un révolutionnaire de salon, qui nous faisait tout le temps enrager contre l'ordre social. Ce n'était que du blabla appuyé par l'alcool et le désir d'impressionner nos camarades révolutionnaires. Eddie était un grand vantard. Aussitôt qu'il y avait du grabuge, il se cachait sous une table ou fuyait comme un rat un navire. Mais il portait un t-shirt de Ché Guevara, et il avait une petite moustache et un regard dur qui lui donnait un air impressionnant pour sa clique influençable. Il était tout le temps mal peigné, on l'appelait "deux-tons" à cause de sa peau pâle qui perçait à travers ses cheveux graisseux.

Hell to Pay

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

Take pity on two-tone Eddie
His hair was never right
He used to be cool with a glint in his eye
But he lost it overnight
The spinning world is changing things are rearranging
But Eddie says to me
Nothing wrong with the way it was
That's way it's meant to be

Up the revolution
We're all prepared to die
Up the revolution
That was the battle cry


There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay
There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay


Eddie was a die-hard rebel
In the good old days of way back when
A cigarette was cool and all the kids in school
Could read and count to ten
Everyone said he had a future bright
Of that there was no doubt
He never could make us understand
What the rebellion was all about

Up the revolution
We're all prepared to die
Up the revolution
That was the battle cry


There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay
There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay


Two-tone Eddie drew up battle plans
For making love not war
Everybody laughed at the fighting in the street
From behind a guarded door
It came to nothing when it all went down
And the band began to play
Another plan, put your head in the sand
Live to fight another day

Up the revolution
We're all prepared to die
Up the revolution
That was our battle cry


There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay
There's gonna be hell
Hell to pay
