The Ballad Of Melody Nelson
(Covers)
Lyrics and explanation



Melody Nelson

Lyrics Serge Gainsbourg, adaptation Boris Bergman & Paul Ives
The Ballad Of Melody Nelson
"Pour l'amitié,
L'amitié entre hommes et femmes
Impensable
Parce que, il y a toujours
Sous jacent
Le désir animal"

This is the story of Melody Nelson
Apart from me, no one
Ever took her in his arms
Under her thumb, ice in the sun
She was nothing but love, poor Melody Nelson
Her life was more said than done
But her days were numbered nil
Count fourteen falls,
Fifteen on call

A baby tiger was Melody Nelson
Forever purring in the sun
Just as dangerous as a child with a gun
Shooting me down

Oh my melody, my Melody Nelson
Still playing hurting games for fun
As adorable as dumb
Deaf to the sound
To what's going down
Press Quotes
There's a bonus disk with covers by your new album 'Sleeping with ghosts' now. What's your favourite song?

We've done covers before, a.o. for a Smiths tribute-album and the Velvet Goldmine soundtrack. This year we wanted to put them all together along with some new ones. In the studio we try out all sorts of things: sometimes a song works, sometimes not. But we're very proud of
Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush and Serge Gainsbourg's The ballad of Melody Nelson.

Brian Molko, Samsonic December 2003
