Charlie Parker Lyrics


Flaming Lips
Miscellaneous
Charlie Manson Blues
The seance has just been told,
The slaughter has just been sold,
To some people who won't get old,
Cause their skin is getting cold.

The room that's in the back,
That's where I lost it all.
In the room that's in the back,
Let's go have a ball.

Cause I'm slipping into the Charlie Manson Blues.
I'm a stupid dressed Jesus son.
I'm slipping into the Charlie Manson Blues.
I'm a stupid dressed Jesus son.

Head burning up, chain-smoking,
Everybody here is choking.
Shrunken heads are joking,
And new-born skull is broke.

And the room that's in the back,
Is where I lost it all.
In the room that's in the back,
Let's go have a ball.

Cause I'm slipping into the Charlie Manson Blues.
I'm a stupid dressed Jesus son.
I'm slipping into the Charlie Manson Blues.
I'm a stupid dressed Jesus son.

Cause I'm slipping into the Charlie Manson Blues.
I'm a stupid dressed Jesus son.
I'm slipping into the Charlie Manson Blues.
I'm a stupid dressed Jesus son.

Whoa, Goddammit!
Shit!

People still playing this modern music around the world in 2020, my friend. When Covid is over visit a jazz club in NYC, yes, you will hear bebop.

phrog

that being everywhere would be so damn annoying. im glad that this music exists but im also very glad about other stuff, from hip hop over to rossini operas towards old rock and roll and newer fucked up metal and ambiente. every genre is sick so i very much appreciate it that some genres time is over so new things can develop. i hate these kinds of comments.

Damn, one of the hardest swinging tracks in all of Bebop, in my opinion! I love everything about this: the melody, the solos, the groove... RIP Bird & Diz. We miss you! All the best, everybody.

It's the coolest for sure
And it makes the listener very cool also
It can change your whole mood and
Demeanor
Put a strut in your step
Or wearing a suit when it's not required

I agree, totally underplayed. The solos are absolutely smoking!
