Mazzarò

Have you heard of Mazzarò?
Diamond-head who after all
Thing by thing bought his whole world
But I’m gonna tell you more
Come closer and guess what?
Now it’s the whole world
Who wants you like Mazzarò

So your only craft
Must be to get more stuff
Till the day you’ll die
It will be too late to hide

Need more and more

Have you heard of Mazzarò?
Diamond-head who after all
Thing by thing bought his whole world

But who wants to hear more?
We’re doomed to do work
For money, we’re all whores
Otherwise our hunger grows
As our only craft
Becomes mere survival
Till we’ll realise
Money’s nothing when you die

Need more and more

Have you heard of Mazzarò?
Diamond-head who after all
Thing by thing bought his whole world
He could not

Have you heard of Mazzarò?
Diamond-head who after all
Thing by thing bought his whole world
Have you heard of Mazzarò?
Diamond-head who after all
Carry his stuff to the grave
Well, he could not

From the album At the Magic Door, by Strega.
