At the age of 27

July 26, 2011 § Leave a comment

In memory of Amy Winehouse.

 M.I.A. released the song called 27 for Amy Winehouse and all the friends that died at the age of 27,  Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain..

Follow the lyrics:

“Said you’re all mouth and no brains
all rock stars go to heaven
you said you’ll be dead at 27
when we drunk in a English tavern
the owner poured you the bourbon
and you drunk yourself so rotten
he got so rich he bought a Bentley
and moved himself to Devon

You started dirty dancing
and you bar-tended a dozen
I took you to the clinic
to get you clean but you couldn’t
said in two days you’re 27 and your destiny was coming
and your papa passed so sudden
and left you with lil’ somin’

you blew that money on a mountain of drugs
and staged your self a bed-in
a month later when I popped in
you’re still high but the winter set in
I bought you a coffee and a muffin
and you quoted me some Lenin
I wished I was that clever
but that’s what kept me coming
your friendship did mean somin’
but you left me for nothin’
when I left, you befriended a rope
and I found you both were hanging.”
