Waters, Roger - Three Wishes Lyrics




Reached back for the bottle
And rubbed against the lamp
Genie came out smiling
Like some Eastern tramp
He said hey boy what's happening
What is going on
You can have three wishes
If you don't take too long
I said well
I wish they all were happy on the Lebanon
Wish somebody'd help me write this song
I wish when I was young
My old man had not been gone
Genie said consider it done
There's something in the air
And you don't know what it is
You see someone through a window
Who you've just learned to miss
And the road leads on to glory but
You've used up your last wish
Your last wish
And you want her to come home
Genie said I'm sorry
But that's the way it goes
Where the hell's lamp sucker
It's time for me to go
Bye
There's something in the air
And you don't know what it is
You see someone through a window
Who you've just learned to miss
And the road leads on to glory but
You've used up your last wish
Your last wish
And you want her to come home

  4. Михаил Сергопольцев

    Я откpыл бутылку,
    Потеp стекло pукой.
    Улыбаясь взвился
    Джинни надо мной.

    Спpосил: "Эй, дpуг, что случилось ?
    Что у вас за вздоp ?
    Исполню тpи желанья,
    Если ты будешь скоp.
    Если ты будешь скоp."

    Я сказал
    "Хочу, чтобы в Ливане войне пришел конец,
    Чтоб мне помогли закончить стих,
    Хочу, чтоб в моем детстве
    С войны пpишел отец."

    Джин сказал: "ОК! Я исполнил их!"

    Что-то в воздухе мелькнуло.
    Ты не знаешь, кто там был.
    Вдpуг увидел сквозь окошко
    Ту, что совсем забыл.
    И казалось, все пpекpасно, но
    Желаний только тpи.
    Только тpи.
    А ты ждал ее в свой дом... дом...

    В ваш с ней дом.

    Джин сказал: "Всегда вот,
    Бывает так, пpости !
    Уже ничего не испpавить,
    Ведь мне поpа идти.
    Пpощай !"

    Что-то в воздухе мелькнуло.
    Ты не знаешь, кто там был.
    Вдpуг увидел сквозь окошко
    Ту, что совсем забыл.
    И казалось, все пpекpасно, но
    Желаний только тpи.
    Только тpи.
    А ты ждал ее в свой дом... дом...

    Where the hell l'lamp, suckah
    It's time for me to go!
    Byehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"

  19. Mario Bonafé

    Il jazz, i deep purple, Barry white donna summer la soul Music, mancano solo i Pink Floyd.

  20. Mariana Polizzi

    Roger you are my favourite artist, musician, rock poet by far. I also find you dead sexy, you could be my grandpa but still... You are gorgeous! 😍❤️👏

    Kalliopi Dananaki

    Absolutely right! He's the most talented, sexy, genius musician and a real Poet! Love him so much! 💕💕💕

  21. Sophia Wolinski

    wishing i was Priscilla just to have the opportunity to kiss him. god Roger’s so goddamn good looking. its not even funny.

    Mariana Polizzi

  22. Silvano Rossi

    Jeff Becks guitar is like a smooth bottle of wine

  23. Lucio Frezza

    Waters è una fucina musicale e ancora carico di idee....Grande!

  24. Théo Barois

    Il faut être près psychologiquement pour écouter un son aussi puissant.

    Alors l'album entier... je vous explique pas.

  25. David Haney

    The best album you were ever involved with in my opinion Roger , its a true masterpiece !

  26. colinone12

    What a song , careful what you wish for ...

  27. T1000jts Android

    Странно музыка рисует другие пейзажи.......

  28. Martin Brown

    I am pretty sure that the girl is Priscilla Phillips, Roger's third wife

    michela derry

    so am i... beautiful woman

    Martin Brown

    @michela derry She is. Do you get the impression that Roger makes a bit of a fool of himself with women. He was married for a fourth time 2012-2015 and that ended pretty acrimoniously

    michela derry

    @Martin Brown i dont think so. If we think about how many marriages some actresses or actors have in their lifetime!!!

  29. Alan Cuadrado

    does anybody here for jeff beck?

    ordog 666

  32. Kashenor

    Someone will write what is this video and text about?

  33. Anna Hanford

    DUDE!! You don't need a wish mate! Just walk outside and talk it through with her

  34. John Surabian

    Thanks Roger.

  74. Meserbee Chek

    Peter Boyle please stop giving wishes. I keep thinking I am owed and I am still deep in the woods?

  75. Steven J Davies

    The genie speak is strange. Sounds sounds like backwards speak. “It time for me to “gove”

  76. Jo Gabriel Costa

    Wife Priscilla Philips?

    Mariana Polizzi

    Yes she is!

  77. Simoescosta Costa

    Isto é um músico uma lenda para o mundo do rock.

  90. jitterball

    What's is the statement about "Lebanon?"

    harveh

    "i wish they were happy in the Lebanon" the Lebanon was fucked up back then

  91. Yesica Lopez Martines

    Aquí estoy yo Roger !

  92. Cora Solera

    I imagine the Genie being more like a black, smoky Cheshire Cat sort of character. Slightly humanoid, but more of a wisp

  93. 100100911

    I must have missed the part where she paid for the gas.

  94. Claude D

    Why people always related him to Gilmour and other Pink Floyd members. He's not with them anymore since long time and he does his own wonderful stuffs. Like David does too. We are lucky to have both side of the moon!
