BEATLES

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds Lyrics

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
And she’s gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
That grow so incredibly high

Newspaper taxies appear on the shore
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net ]
And you’re gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Picture yourself in a train in a station
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

An old favourite forTuesday: Blowin’ in the wind
Bob Dylan

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Per quante strade un uomo deve camminare
Prima che possa essere chiamato uomo?
Per quanti mari una colomba bianca deve veleggiare
Prima di riposare sulla sabbia?
Si, quante volte le palle di cannone devono volare
Prima che siano bandite per sempre?
La risposta amico mio, sta nel vento che soffia
La risposta sta nel vento che soffia

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn’t see?

The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Si, quanti anni può una montagna durare
Prima che sia erosa dal mare?
Si, quanti anni un popolo deve vivere
Prima che gli sia permesso di essere libero?
Si, quante volte un uomo può voltare la testa
Fingendo di non vedere?
La risposta amico mio, sta nel vento che soffia
La risposta sta nel vento che soffia

Yes, how many times must a man look up
Before he can really see the sky?
Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Si, quante volte un uomo deve guardare in alto
Prima di vedere davvero il cielo?
Si, quante orecchie un uomo deve avere
Prima di poter sentire la gente piangere?
Si, quante morti ci vorranno prima che capisca
Che troppa gente è morta?
La risposta amico mio, sta nel vento che soffia
La risposta sta nel vento che soffia

Yes, how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky ?
Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry ?
Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died ?
The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Monty Python Series 1 Episode 2 | Wednesday 6th November 2013

Reading together: Wednesday 6th November 2013

You are invited to join us to read aloud Monty Python scripts. You do not need to understand it. I just listen to your pronunciation.

We had fun with episode one, and now, for something completely different, we will attempt episode 2. It is a classic and it is life-changing. Whenever I see a sheep in a field I can’t help thinking about the commercial possibilities of ovine aviation.

– When you arrive, click on the box for a text which has been divided into ‘sections’, or use this link to see a clearer version in my Google Drive.
– It does not matter if you are late, but note that we usually start on time and stop after 45 minutes.
– Feel free to take part or to listen.
– If speaking, ideally use an integrated headset/microphone to avoid echo, and switch off your microphone when not involved.
– Themed costumes and sheep optional.

Here is the episode on YouTube:

I look forward to seeing you!
