Band, The - We Can Talk Lyrics




We can talk about it now
It's that same old riddle, only starts from the middle
I'd fix it but I don't know how
Well, we could try to reason, but you might think it's treason
One voice for all
Echoing (echoing) echoing along the hall
Don't give up on father's clock
We can talk about it now

Come, let me show you how
To keep the wheels turnin' you got to keep the engine churnin'
Well, did ya ever milk a cow? (Milk a cow?)
Well, I had the chance one day but I was all dressed up for Sunday!
Everybody, everywhere:
Do you really care?
Well, then pick up your heads and walk
We can talk about it now

It seems to me we've been holding something
Underneath our tongues
I'm afraid if you ever got a pat on the back
It would likely burst your lungs
Whoa, stop me, if I should sound kinda
Down in the mouth
But I'd rather be burned in Canada
Than to freeze here in the South!

Pulling that eternal plough
We got to find a sharper blade, or have a new one made
Rest awhile and cool your brow
Don't ya see, there's no need to slave, the whip is in the grave
No salt, no trance
It's safe now (you know it's safe) to take a backward glance
Because the grains have turned to chow!
We can talk about it now,
We can talk about it now

    We can talk about it now
    It's the same old riddle, only starting from the middle
    I'd fix it but I don't know how
    Well, we could try to reason, but you might think it treason
    One voice for all, echoing along the hall
    Don't give up on Father Clock
    We can talk about it now
    Come, let me show you how
    To keep the wheels turning, you've got to keep the engine churning
    But did you ever milk a cow
    I had the chance one day, but I was all dressed up for Sunday
    Everybody, everywhere, do you really care
    Well then, pick up your heads and walk
    We can talk about it now
    It seems to me we've been holding something
    Underneath our tongues
    I'm afraid if you ever got a pat on the back
    It would likely burst your lungs
    Stop me if I should sound kinda down in the mouth
    But I'd rather be burned in Canada than to freeze here in the South
    Moving that eternal plow
    We've got to find a sharper blade, or have a new one made
    Rest awhile and cool your brow
    Don't you see there's no need to slave, the whip is in the grave
    No sulfur, no trance, it's safe now to take a backward glance
    Because the flames have turned to chalk
    We can talk about it now

    My Hair is BadというバンドのSEだ。
    この曲を聴くとマイヘアのどの曲を聴くよりもライブの熱狂を思い出す。
    それはやはりライブがこれから始まるという合図のような曲だから。
    毎回あんなにすげーライブをやってくれる。それの始まりを告げる曲だから。

    Music from Big Pink was The Band's first album followed later by The Brown Album..

    frank calero

    this was GREAT, but the Brown album makes my all time top 10 albums and I mean EASILY

  23. ZzRash

    This is the second album released by the band but it was made the same time as their debut album was. They said it felt like one big project

  24. ZzRash

    This is the second album released by the band but it was made the same time as their debut album was. They said it felt like one big project

    Franklin Brady

    No, this is their debut. You may be confused because the next album is called "The Band", but this one came first.

  25. ZzRash

    This is the second album released by the band but it was made the same time as their debut album was. They said it felt like one big project
