lyrics

I got my pjs on and I pick up my charango
‘cause I don’t wanna think about you

You’re a mean old man and I’ll keep playing charango
so I don’t think about you

I’m not thinkin’ ‘bout you
I never do, I never do

Don’t trust the butcher, he wants to sell you more meat
than you’ll ever eat
Just be kind and tell him that there’s two of you when really you are eating in eight
And if he doesn’t want to give you that amount you must
go frittata

Frittata for eight, frittata for eight

Don’t trust the butcher, your local macellaio

And don’t trust the butcher, have a frittata on me



(music and lyrics by Monique Mizrahi)

* BEHIND THE SCENES *
****************************

Questa canzone è stata molto catartico per me. Ero stata presa in giro per un anno e mezzo da una persona, tante bugie, tante promesse, tanta delusione.

Pero, non riuscivo a non pensare a questa persona e il malessere che mi ha creato (ero davvero depressa, triste e nervosa). E allora, che meglio che una canzone ... in cui canto "I'm not thinkin about you"... ossia "non sto pensando a te!".

Dopo aver scritto la prima parte, iniziai a riflettere sul fatto che ogni volta che andavo dal maccelaio, riusciva sempre a vendere piu' carne di quel che avevo previsto. Ad esempio, vado per prendere 3 salsicce, torno con 6!

Lo trovai comico, e dunque scrissi "non vi fidate del maccelaio".

Commento buffo: il mio maccelaio, qualche mese fa, è andato in pensione. Spero che la canzone non gli abbia fatto chiudere il negozio! (anzi, mi manca...lui cantava pure...)
