A House in the Country

Matrice du 45 tours A House in the Country / Me Needing You.

Cette reprise d’une chanson des Kinks fraîchement parue sur l’album Face to Face est imposée aux Pretty Things par leur label, qui désespère de les voir accoucher d’un nouveau tube. Le succès n’est pas vraiment au rendez-vous.

Paroles

He don’t need no sedatives to ease his troubled mind
At work he is invariably unpleasant and unkind
Why should he care if he is hated in his stately home

‘Cause he’s got a house in the country, yeah, and a big sports car
He’s got a house in the country and a big sports car

But he ain’t got a home, oh no,
And he’s as wicked as he can be,
He’s got a house in the country
Where he likes to spend his weekend days.

He likes to drive people in his office ’round the bend
[???] his secretary’s mopping [???]
He’s got the cash, he can afford just what he likes

He’s got a house in the country, yeah, and a big sports car
He’s got a house in the country and a big sports car

But he’s socially dead, oh no,
It doesn’t matter much to him,
He’s got a house in the country
Where he likes to spend his weekend days.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, all right!

Well, he got his job when drunken Daddy tumbled down the stairs
From that day this boy is having more than his share
One of these days I’m gonna knock him off his throne

See, he’s got a house in the country, yeah, and a big sports car.
He’s got a house in the country, yeah, and a big sports car.

And he’s oh so smug, oh yeah,
It doesn’t matter much to him
‘Cause he’s got a house in the country
Where he likes to spend his weekend days.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, well all right

A house in the country
