Stakka Bo – Here We Go

23 Apr, 2012

Album: Supermarket (1993), PolyGram

Have you ever seen a hat shaped like a plant pot? How about a rapping Swede with a moustache? And a black ladybug? Because if you haven’t, you can see that all now… Fortunately, you will not bother, because you would rather dance after the first minute than watch it. That’s because this frisky track has a beat with the potential to destroy a dance floor, and the chorus you will be singing yourself for the next week.

 

 

[-]  [+]  Lyrics:


Here we go again
here we go-go-go to the temple of consumption
get your gear and start to spend
here we go-go-go with a total dedication

Here we go again
here we go-go-go to the temple of consumption
get your gear and start to spend
here we go, here we go, here we go

As some sort of prototype I serve to be
you see tomorrow’s dream has never been part of me
consume today and leave the rest behind you
tomorrow’s a surprise party buy a ticket too (too)
faster livin’, faster, live as fast as you’re able
eat the food while it’s still hot on the table (table)
now spend if you can, the greens are burning in your pocket
if you spend it right now you’ll get as high as a rocket

Everything you don’t use will loose it’s value tomorrow
consumed too much today, you can always borrow
this paradigm’s the best one since the day of creation
get your gear and shape up, this is the revelation
shop till you drop has built this civilization
don’t believe what you hear ’bout the next generation
if you go with a lot of toys you’ll slip away a happy man
the greens are burning in you pocket, spend it while you can

Here we go again
here we go-go-go to the temple of consumption
get your gear and start to spend
here we go-go-go with a total dedication

Here we go again
here we go-go-go to the temple of consumption
get your gear and start to spend
here we go, here we go, here we go

The moon and the stars they all look down on me and say
there’s a correlation between tomorrow and today
I say you won’t gain a thing on that sick repudiation
we’re right here, right now, that’s the only situation
you can’t fool me, we live on borrowed time
so I spend the funds I have to the nickel and dime
check it in, check it out, it’s not a matter of contention
get your gear and shape up and join the church of consumption

Use it in, wear it out, then throw it all away
go get yourself a new one all you gotta do is pay
because the more I will get, the more I will own
with a lot of things around me I will never feel alone
I work around the clock just to earn my livin’
and I wanna get, I won’t spend my funds on givin’, now
I’m acting irresponsible, is that what you say?
hey, Somalia got my toaster just the other day

Here we go again
here we go-go-go to the temple of consumption
get your gear and start to spend
here we go-go-go with a total dedication

Here we go again
here we go-go-go to the temple of consumption
get your gear and start to spend
here we go, here we go, here we go

    Tak tieto ksichty to fakt vychytali, hlavne ten skotsky skriatok s kvetinacom na hlave s mimikou lepsou ako Jim Carrey. Vyborny kusok!

    Ten klip je fakt ako z nejakeho velmi podivneho sna. Neviem, co bolo reziserovym zamerom, ale ak to bolo vitazstvo v sutazi o najbizarnejsie hudobne duo, tak mu to vyslo.
