The complete lyrics - all in good time

89 Nothing at All

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
Del álbum WHOOSH! de Deep Purple

Como siempre con Deep Purple, la música es lo primero que viene, luego los arreglos y finalmente las letras. En este caso, la caprichosa naturaleza de la música inspiró originalmente una extravagante canción sobre un duende que era un poco artificiosa pero terminó y estaba dormitando hasta que la Madre Naturaleza - el único dios real - asomó su cabeza alrededor de mi puerta en las tempranas horas del amanecer y dijo:

Yo creé el Universo que es todas las cosas conocidas.
Mi poder es maravilloso y terrible.
Yo di vida.
Lo que tú hagas es cosa tuya; a mí no me importa.
Yo no respondo plegarias.

Ahora ve a dormir de nuevo si puedes...

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
