GOIN' TO ACAPULCO
da "The Basement Tapes"

 

VADO AD ACAPULCO
parole e musica Bob Dylan

Sto andando da Rose Marie
non mi rende mai cattivo
Mi si presenta chiara come il giorno
e mi si dà per una canzone

E' una vita malvagia ma che diavolo
le stelle non stanno mica cadendo
Me ne sto fuori dal Taj Mahal
Non vedo nessuno in giro

Vado ad Acapulco
di corsa
Vado a trovare il grassone
vado a divertirmi
Già
vado a divertirmi

Ora, quando mi alzo
e non ho ricevuto ciò che vedo
me ne vado da Rose Marie
alle tre e un quarto

Esistono modi peggiori per arrivarci
e non mi lamento di nessuno di essi
Se le nuvole non gocciolano ed il treno non si ferma
vado incontro al sole

Vado ad Acapulco
di corsa
Vado a trovare qualche ragazza
vado a divertirmi
Già
vado a divertirmi

Ora, se qualcuno mi propone uno scherzo
dico solo no grazie.
Provo a dirla così com'è
e mi tengo lontano dai trucchi

Beh, a volte sai che quando il pozzo si rompe
io ci pompo su un pò
Rose Marie ama andare in posti grandi
e mettersi lì ad aspettare che io arrivi

Vado ad Acapulco
di corsa
Vado a trovare qualche ragazza
vado a divertirmi
Già
vado a divertirmi


GOIN' TO ACAPULCO
words and music Bob Dylan

                           I'm going down to Rose Marie's
                           She never does me wrong.
                           She puts it to me plain as day
                           And gives it to me for a song.

                           It's a wicked life but what the hell
                           The stars ain't falling down.
                           I'm standing outside the Taj Mahal
                           I don't see no one around.

                           Goin' to Acapulco
                           Goin' on the run.
                           Goin' down to see fat gut
                           Goin' to have some fun.
                           Yeah
                           Goin' to have some fun.

                           Now, whenever I get up
                           And I ain't got what I see
                           I just make it down to Rose Marie's
                           'Bout a quarter after three.

                           There are worse ways of getting there
                           And I ain't complainin' none.
                           If the clouds don't drop and the train don't stop
                           I'm bound to meet the sun.

                           Goin' to Acapulco
                           Goin' on the run.
                           Goin' down to see some girl
                           Goin' to have some fun.
                           Yeah
                           Goin' to have some fun.

                           Now, if someone offers me a joke
                           I just say no thanks.
                           I try to tell it like it is
                           And keep away from pranks.

                           Well, sometime you know when the well breaks down
                           I just go pump on it some.
                           Rose Marie, she likes to go to big places
                           And just set there waitin' for me to come.

                           Goin' to Acapulco
                           Goin' on the run.
                           Goin' down to see some girl
                           Goin' to have some fun.
                           Yeah
                           Goin' to have some fun.
