Jazz Sessions (VIII)

Uno no puede sino dejarse llevar por la música cuando comienza a escuchar maravillas como la que nos regalan estas dos grandes figuras del classic jazz: Louis Armstrong y Billie Holiday en "My Sweet Hunk O'Trash", todo un prodigio musical digno de la más absoluta admiración.

Si se es capaz de seguir y entender más o menos la letra se corre el riesgo de éxtasis. Canciones como ésta no se escuchan todos los días. Qué sentido del humor, qué interpretación, qué maravilla...

"My Sweet Hunk O'Trash" (B. Holiday & L. Armstrong)

You don't act up too much
Ain't got that glamour touch
You're trifling lazy
Ain't worth a cigarette ash
Look out here mamma, look out here
You carry me too fast
Watch it, baby
You're just my good for nothin'
My sweet hunk o' trash
My, my, how you sound

You're very short on looks
Yeah yeah yeah
Dumb, when it comes to books
Look out, baby
Watch it, honey
And you stay full of corn
Just like a succotash
What you want me to do in my idle moments
You're just a good-for-nothin'
But my sweet hunk o' trash
Let me get a word in there honey, you running your mouth

You said I've worried you for years
I'm just a barfly moochin' beers
While you sweat over a hot stove slinging hash
Work my fingers right down to the elbows
Yes I may be good-for-nothin'
But I'm still your sweet hunk o' trash
First to admit it baby

You said I spread my love all around
And with the chicks all over town
But, how can I when you keep me broke
So I can't spend no cash
Yes I may be good-for-nothin'
But I'm still your sweet hunk o' trash

Listen hear pops,
You know you lie about your youth
I don't lie baby
I'm just careless with the truth, that's all
How careless can you be
Oh, no
With all your chicks
You try to make a flash
Now baby
It ain't like that, no
But you're still my good-for-nothin'
My sweet hunk o' trash

Now when you stay out very late
It sure makes me mad to wait
how come, baby?
Cus, you come home too tired
To raise just one eyelash
Watch it baby
Watch it
You're just good-for-nothin'
But you're my sweet hunk o' trash
Yes indeed!
