The complete lyrics - all in good time

89 Nothing At All

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
Aus dem Deep Purple Album WHOOSH!

Wie immer bei Deep Purple kommt zuerst die Musik, dann die Melodie und dann der Text. In diesem Fall inspieierte die kapriziöse Natur der Musik ursprünglich ein skurriles Lied über einen Leprechaun, das ein bisschen gekünstelt aber fertig war, und so döste ich, bis Mutter Natur - die eine wahre Göttin - mir in den winzig kurzen Stunden einen kurzen Besuch abstattete und sagte:

Ich schuf das Universum, das alle bekannten Dinge ist.
Meine Macht ist wundersam und schrecklich.
Ich gebe Leben.
Waa ihr damit macht, ist eure Sache, mich kümmert es nicht.
Ich antworte auf keine Gebete.

Jetzt schlaf weiter, wenn du kannst...

Nothing at All

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

I'm talking to myself again
And waving to a passing friend
I've known her since I don't know when
Ah, it's nothing at all

Just a few of us walk arm in arm
It's innocent and charming
But the children seem to be getting alarmed
Don't worry kids, it's nothing at all

When I hear about the doom and gloom
That's around the corner, and coming soon

I take a sip of mother's ruin
And sit with my back to the wall

It's nothing at all,
Nothing at all,
And the old lady smiled
It's nothing at all,
Then she blew all the leaves off my tree

And the junk that sails our seven seas
Is very nearly up to my knees
But the platitudes and pleasantries
Keep saying it's nothing at all

I'll deal with it on another day
If I close my eyes it'll go away
So, bottoms up boys, and what do you say
Really, it's nothing at all

It's nothing at all,
Nothing at all,
And the old lady smiled
It's nothing at all
And the summer passed away

It's nothing at all,
It's nothing at all,
And the old lady smiled
It was nothing at all,
Then she blew all the leaves off my tree
