“(I want to know when I can go)
(Back and get drunk with my friends?)

Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka

Rosaleem of the Damascene
Yes, she had eyes like the moon
Would have been on the silver screen
But for the missile monsoon
She went, “Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo”
Indigo go up to heaven today
Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
She say

I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again

Baba would go where the flowers grow
Almond and peach trees in bloom
And he would know just when and what to sow
So golden and opportune
He went, “Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo”
Tulips the colour of honey today
It’s true true, woo woo oo-oo-oo
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
He say


Oh I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again (yeah)

Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo
Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo
Cherubim seraphim soon
Come sailing us home by the light of the moon

Oh I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and feel home again

Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo
I guess we’ll be raised on our own then
Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo
I want to be with you ‘til the world ends
I want to be with you ‘til the whole world ends

Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom”.

Citazioni.

Orphans is a song by British rock band Coldplay from their eighth studio album Everyday Life. It was released on 24 October 2019, along with the single “Arabesque” and appears on the second side of the album Sunset. The song was written by the band members and produced by The Dream Team. On 24 October 2019, the band announced the release (on the same day) of the songs “Arabesque” and “Orphans” as a dual release and as the first singles off Everyday Life. About the content of the songs, lead singer Chris Martin said in an interview with BBC Radio 1 that “some of it’s very personal, about real things in my life, and some of it’s about things that I see or we see, and some of it’s about trying to empathise about what other people are going through”. On the day of the release, the band set up a timer counting down to the release of the songs. The song was recorded last-minute during the mixing of the album Everyday Life, for which it served as one of two lead singles. The music video for the song premiered on 25 October 2019. The music video shows the development of the song from its earliest roots, a voice memo by Chris Martin in which the singer is heard talking about the tuning of his guitar before playing what would become the song’s main riff, to the fully polished song that was released. The music video won an award at the 2020 MTV VMAs for ‘Best Rock’ music video. The song was performed live for the first time during NBC’s Saturday Night Live on 2 November 2019. In a rehearsal, Martin explained to the dancers who accompanied the band’s performance, “This song is about, you see all these pictures of young people like you and a bit older people like us, having to leave their countries and everyone calls them refugees or migrants rather than just people. So we were thinking about, this could be any of us who is in these camps or at the border or whatever. And that’s what this song’s about, it’s like people like us saying, ‘I just want to go home and be normal.'” “Orphans” was later played live on the Annie Mac Show on BBC Radio 1 on 27 November 2019 along with “Arabesque“, “Everyday Life“, “Lovers in Japan“, and “Guns“.
