My Melancholy Baby
Charlie Parker Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

...
Volver a verte la cara ciudad despintada, no tengo opción
Y si la tengo es por falta de valor
Paga la cuenta y suerte

Ciudad de mi niñez, ya te despedí mas de una vez
Y mis escapes aniquilan mi almanaque
Lo disfrazan tan bien

Volver a verte la cara ciudad despeinada por el viento invernal
Tantos proyectos, hay hay hay hay hay Inconclusos incompletos




Tostadas dulce y café.
Café, café café.

Overall Meaning

I believe the above lyrics are not from Charlie Parker's "My Melancholy Baby", but rather from a different song entirely. Therefore, I cannot provide an interpretation of these lyrics.
