The complete lyrics - all in good time

89 Nothing at All

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
Fra Deep Purple-albummet WHOOSH!

Som det altid er tilfældet med Deep Purple, kommer musikken først, derefter melodien og til sidst teksten. I dette tilfælde inspirerede den lunefulde musik oprindeligt til en finurlig sang om en alf, der var en smule kunstig men færdig; så jeg blundede lidt, indtil Moder Natur – den eneste sande gud – stak hovedet indenfor og sagde:

Jeg skabte Universet, som består af alle kendte ting.

Min magt er vidunderlig og frygtelig.

Jeg skaber liv.

Hvad du gør ved det, er op til dig; jeg er ligeglad

Jeg besvarer ikke bønner.

Læg dig nu til at sove igen, hvis du kan...

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
