Gorillaz – Clint Eastwood

As I mentioned before with Love is All, an easy way to attract kids to good music is video. One day I had my British friend James for diner. As a good old Brit he had to listen to good old British pop. So he went to Youtube and, I can’t remember why, but he put Clint Eastwood from Gorillaz. My daughter was mesmerized, she loved the video. First I was a bit skeptical because there are some skeletons in the video, and everything is a bit dark. I thought she would get scared, but she didn’t. In fact, she still asks me to put the video a few times a week because she loves when the monkeys dance (thank god she doesn’t know Michael Jackson yet so she doesn’t know the monkeys dance like him). Also I’m quite lucky because she doesn’t question me too much on the lyrics (she is too busy starring at the video). Because I think “I’m useless” is not really uplifting, but she doesn’t listen to it. And instead of “I ain’t happy” I just sing “I’m happy” ;o)

Lyrics

Oh oh oh oh oh
I ain’t happy,
I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless but
Not for long
The future is coming on

I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I’m useless,but not for long
The future is coming on
I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long
The future is coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on

Yeah… Ha Ha!
Finally someone let me out of my cage
Now, time for me is nothing cos I’m counting no age
Now I couldn’t be there
Now you shouldn’t be scared
I’m good at repairs
And I’m under each snare
Intangible
Bet you didn’t think so I command you to
Panoramic view
Look I’ll make it all manageable
Pick and choose
Sit and lose
All you different crews
Chicks and dudes
Who you think is really kickin’ tunes?
Picture you gettin’ down in a picture tube
Like you lit the fuse
You think it’s fictional
Mystical? Maybe
Spiritual
Hearable
What appears in you is a clearer view cos you’re too crazy
Lifeless
To know the definition for what life is
Priceless
For you because I put you on the hype shit
You like it?
Gunsmokin’ righteous with one token
Psychic among those
Possess you with one go

I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I’m useless,but not for long
The future is coming on
I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long
The future is coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on

The essence the basics
Without it you make it
Allow me to make this
Childlike in nature
Rhythm
You have it or you don’t that’s a fallacy
I’m in them
Every sprouting tree
Every child apiece
Every cloud you see
You see with your eyes
I see destruction and demise
Corruption in disguise
From this fuckin’ enterprise
Now I’m sucking to your lies
Through Russ, though not his muscles but the percussion he provides
with me as a guide
But y’all can see me now cos you don’t see with your eye
You perceive with your mind
That’s the inner
So I’m gonna stick around with Russ and be a mentor
Bust a few rhymes so mother fuckers
Remember where the thought is
I brought all this
So you can survive when law is lawless
Feelings, sensations that you thought were dead
No squealing, remember
(that it’s all in your head)

I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long
The future is coming on
I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long
My future is coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
My future is coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
My future is coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
My future is coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
My future is coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
My future is coming on
It’s coming on
It’s coming on
My future
