    Williams Blood - Grace Jones ( I loooooove this song!!! )

    I LOVE the lyrics of this song!



    Lyrics to Williams' Blood :
    You Can't save me, you can't save a wretch like me

    When she was seventeen
    She married a Preacher Man
    And she settled down
    In a little part of town
    Followed him all around
    Having little babies
    Singing in a little Church
    In a little ghost town

    She's so happy (I donīt want to keep up I canīt keep up)
    Sheīs so happy, keeping up (I donīt wanna keep up, keeping up with the Jones')

    Finally she told me
    Grandpa Dan travelled
    Playing on the road
    With Nat King Cole
    And he womanised
    Staying up all night
    Boozed it up around the town
    From town to town to town

    (Let me go - ahhh ah Hurricane)
    (Just let me go - ahhh ah Iīm going to care)

    Why don't you be a Jones like your Sister and your brother Noel
    when are you gonna be a Jones your just like your Dad
    God bless his soul

    I've got the William's blood in me
    I've got the William's blood in me
    I've got the William's blood in me (I've got the Williams' blood)
    I've got the William's blood in me
    In me, in me, in me, running though my veins
    William's blood in me

    In a room full of doves
    I'm waiting for the Angels
    Spreading my wings
    So I can fly
    (Let me fly) Hurricane
    -You canīt save a wretch like me-
    (Let me fly ahhhh ahh - hurricane) (Let me go - ahhh ah Hurricane)
    Why don't you be a Jones like your Sister and your brother Noel

    (Thanks to Massimo for these lyrics)

    It steadily grew on me. Took me like a year. I think I am most fond of the Greg Wilson mix.

    Greg Wilson knows how to treat a song right! His version is in a Nicky Siano mix on Red Bull Music Academy...

    personally, I love the Yam Who mix ... very true to the original. But the lyrics are dope as shit ... autobiographical to the utmost! I got the Williams' blood in ME!

    The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.

    I missed out on this one. Trying to get my down/mid tempo collection up to speed
    and this fits right in there.
