Carpe Diem

Невер Блюд, 2017
Твой папа самых тех правил.
На жизненном пути
Всем желал судьбу лишь
Настоящую найти.
Не верил выпендрёжке,
Даже в цирке не служил,
Зато знал дома до последней ложки,
Где что положил.

Припев:
Будь только настоящим,
Или точно пропадёшь.
Ты будь себе хозяин!
Кто без стержня? Червь да вошь.
Или прав ты, или лев.
Ведь не вечен самурай,
И должен настоять, иль
Не открыть ворота в рай.

Отже, їдемо. Перекрито.
Узимку, середа.
Людині треба рухів більше.
Бокс, пілатес, фітнес, кернес, да.
Але кому скарги слати,
Голові всього села?
Якщо через цей майдан
Ми не устигнем діла?

Піди,
Спитай, чого стрибають?
Зазвичай, існує знак:
Там Либідь, Щек і браття,
Або Лебідь, Щука й Рак?
Ти не мавпа, не козел,
То й поводься, мов козак!
Спитай, чого стрибають?
Зазвичай, не просто так.

Життя вже зовсім інше,
Ніж у татові часи.
Та навіщо їм, якого в тебе
Кольору труси?

Будь только настоящим,
Или точно пропадёшь.
Ты будь себе хозяин!
Кто без стержня? Червь, да вошь.
Ти не мавпа, не козел,
То й поводься, мов козак!
Спитай, чого стрибають?
Зазвичай, не просто так.

Будь только настоящим!
Приоткрой ворота в рай!

You've Got To Stand For Something

© Aaron Tippin, Buddy Brock, 1990
Now daddy didn't like trouble,
But if it came along
Everyone that knew him
Knew which side that he'd be on
He never was a hero,
Or this country's shinin' light
But you could always find him standing up
For what he thought was right

He'd say
You've got to stand for something
Or you'll fall for anything
You've got to be your own man
Not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what's right
And uphold your family name
You've got to stand for something
Or you'll fall for anything

Now we might have been better off
Or owned a bigger house
If daddy've done more givin' in
Or a little more backing down
But we always had plenty
Just living his advice
Whatever you do today
You'll have to split with tonight

He'd say
You've got to stand for something
Or you'll fall for anything
You've got to be your own man
Not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what's right
And uphold your family name
You've got to stand for something
Or you'll fall for anything

Now I know that things are different
Than they were in daddy's day
But I still believe what makes a man
Really hasn't changed

You've got to stand for something
Or you'll fall for anything
You've got to be your own man
Not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what's right
And uphold your family name
You've got to stand for something
Or you'll fall for anything

You've got to stand for something
Or you'll fall for anything
