Saint Cecilia

Early in the morning I left for the conservatory,
I had an appointment at half past to give a guitar lesson;
On the way I met an old mate, the reunion
Took place at the bottom of a bar: publican, 6 barons and 2 straws!
 
Messed up face and head in the bucket,
We don't have easy jobs;
She is the patron saint of musicians:
I'm going light up a candle for Saint Cecilia.
 
Early in the morning I start again, this time towards the studio;
I had an appointment a quarter to, with the technician gang
35th take, one punch per note: they want to beat me up;
So we rinsed our glottis, it will be better next time.
 
Kangaroos in the pumpkin,
We don't have easy jobs;
She is the patron saint of scratchers:
I'm going light up a candle for Saint Cecilia.
 
Early in the morning I went back to the concert hall,
I had an appointment at noon for the balances: a great hassle.
The sono was screwed up, the sound was really rotten,
To spare our tinnitus, we immersed ourselves in the whiskey
 
It's the black out, the bowl solo,
We don't have easy jobs;
Patroness of the bawling songsters:
I'm going light up a candle for Saint Cecilia.
 
It starts all over again in the morning: meet the producer,
For once I'm early, I must say that I was scared to death.
To pass the time and reassure myself, I light a cigarette on the stove
When the shark arrived, I was riding on a cloud.
 
Concert of anvils in the brain,
We don't have easy jobs;
She is the patron saint of minstrels:
I'm going light up a candle for Saint Cecilia.
 
Early in the morning I stay in bed: we won't attack until tonight,
I phone my girlfriend: "Come over, I'm spending the day in the sack";
She came with reinforcements, I invited 2, 3 friends,
We mixed together so much that we only untangled the next day.
 
Thanks!
