Alannah Myles – Black Velvet

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama’s dancin’ with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin’ like molasses in the sky
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Up in Memphis the music’s like a heatwave
“White lightning”, bound to drive you wild
Mama’s baby’s in the heart of every school girl
“Love me tender” leaves ’em cryin’ in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Every word of every song that he sang was for you
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon, what could
You do?

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please
If you please, if you please, if you please

Alannah Myles – Black Velvet

Prevod pesme

Crni baršun

Misisipi usred suše
Džimi Rodžers glasno na gramofonu
Mama pleše sa bebom na ramenu
Sunce zalazi kao melase na nebu
Dečko je umeo da peva, znao kako da pokrene sve
Uvek je hteo više, ostavio bi te da patiš za njim

Crni baršun i osmeh tog dečaka
Crni baršun uz taj lagani južnjački stil
Nova religija koja će te baciti na kolena
Crni baršun, moliću lepo

Gore u Memfisu, muzika je kao toplotni talas
“Bela munja”, sigurno te dovodi do ludila
Mamin dečko je u srcu svake školarke
Voli me nežno” ostavlja ih u prolazu uplakane
Način na koji se kretao, to je bio greh, tako sladak i iskren
Uvek je hteo više, ostavio bi te da patiš za njim

Crni baršun i osmeh tog dečaka
Crni baršun uz taj lagani južnjački stil
Nova religija koja će te baciti na kolena
Crni baršun, moliću lepo

Svaka reč svake pesme koju je pevao je bila za tebe
U trenutku je nestao, to se iznenada desilo, šta si ti
tu mogao?

Crni baršun i osmeh tog dečaka
Crni baršun uz taj lagani južnjački stil
Nova religija koja će te baciti na kolena
Crni baršun, moliću lepo

Crni baršun i osmeh tog dečaka
Crni baršun uz taj lagani južnjački stil
Nova religija koja će te baciti na kolena
Crni baršun, moliću lepo
Moliću lepo, moliću lepo, moliću lepo
