Lyrics: 1st Verse On this European night out on the brink The cafes and the bars still stink The mist is much too thick for seeing But not thick enough for leaning I leave in a catatonic crawl And if I die tonight don't fling me in Some bleak teutonic hole Six feet under with a snap-frozen soul And really we could all just die of shame... Yeah... die of shame... Dumb Europe, Dumb Europe, la la la la la. 2nd Verse On this Utopian night on the brink Mama's face staring up at me from the bottom of the sink Witness my trail of destruction Just trying to leave this drinking place My feet are magnetized for furniture The floor's attracted to my face And if I die tonight Sell me as a prehistoric bone Authentic junk-souvenir to Jap To fob off on his friends back home The money-dance...[mumble] I find it hard to cope with days like this etc... Dumb Europe, Dumb Europe, la la la la la. [The third verse is completely undecipherable, but sounds like:] And tonight steps into my beer in my poor '61, I swear that statue's read the moons Or my planets are all wrong And if I die tonight ship my body way back home [mumble] [mumble] Pulling the drip right out of the arm Dumb Europe, Dumb Europe, la la la la la. 4th Verse On this European night on the brink Your cafes, your beer-halls and your bars still stink And if I die tonight send my body way back home And if I die tonight send my body way back home And if I die tonight send my body way back home And if I die tonight and if I die tonight... Dumb Europe Dumb Europe Dumb Europe Dumb Europe This recording is reasonably rare, and it's unlikely anyone you play the song to will have heard the original anyway, so just use the lyrics above, or the ones from King Ink, and play the song in whatever way sounds best to you ;) Have fun ;) Any comments/corrections/suggestions welcome, -- Greg O'Beirne gobeirne@tartarus.uwa.edu.au http://www.student.uwa.edu.au/student/gobeirne/ http://www.student.uwa.edu.au/student/gobeirne/Transcriptions.html
