Paprika Plains (LP版) - Joni Mitchell (琼妮·米切尔)

Written by:Joni Mitchell

 

It fell from midnight skies

 

It drummed on the galvanized

 

In the washroom women tracked the rain

Up to the make-up mirror

 

Liquid soap and grass

 

And Jungle Gardenia crash

On Pine-Sol and beer

 

It's stifling in here

 

I've got to get some air

 

I'm going outside to get some air

 

Back in my hometown

 

They would have cleared the floor

Just to watch the rain come down

 

They're such sky oriented people

 

Geared to changing weather

 

I'm floating off in time

 

I'm floating off

I'm floating off in time

 

When I was three feet tall

 

And wide eyed open to it all

 

With their tasseled teams they came

To McGee's General Store

 

All in their beaded leathers

 

I would tie on colored feathers

 

And I'd beat the drum like war

 

I would beat the drum like war

 

I'd beat the drum like

 

Beat the drum like war

 

But when the church got through

 

They traded their beads for bottles

 

Smashed on Railway Avenue

 

And they cut off their braids

 

And lost some link with nature

 

I'm floating into dreams

 

I'm floating off

I'm floating into my dreams

 

I dream paprika plains

 

Vast and bleak and God forsaken

 

Paprika plains

 

And a turquoise river snaking

 

The rain retreats

 

Like troops to fall on other fields and streets

 

Meanwhile they're sweet talking and name calling

And brawling on the fringes of the floor

 

I spot you through the smoke

With your eyes on fire

From J and B and coke

 

As I'm coming through the door

 

I'm coming back

I'm coming back for more

 

The band plugs in again

 

You see that mirrored ball begin to sputter lights

And spin

 

Dizzy on the dancers

 

Geared to changing rhythms

 

No matter what you do

 

I'm floating back

I'm floating back to you
