Suzanne Vega – Cork Opera House, 21.02.14

Suzanne Vega

Words: Ralph Mexico

Du-du du-du, du-du du-du, du-du du-du, du-du du-du
I am sitting in the Opera House
Watching Suzanne Vega
She is singing a Lou Reed song
It is ‘Walk On The Wild Side’
She sings it as an encore
And before I even applaud
I know that this has been
One very, very special gig

Du-du du-du, du-du du-du, du-du du-du, du-du du-du
It is always nice to hear her
Sing songs such as ‘Luka’
It was just a pity that a bonehead
Did some drunken heckling
Suzanne carried on
Looking suitably riled up
As she delivered a stunning version
Of the nasty ‘Blood Makes Noise’

Du-du du-du, du-du du-du, du-du du-du, du-du du-du
She called her new album
A name that’s hard to put in a song
Tales From The Realms Of The Queen Of Pentacles
Doesn’t roll of the tongue
She joked about the title
And played a lot of new songs
Which were perfectly ok
But we preferred ‘Marlene On The Wall’

Du-du du-du, du-du du-du, du-du du-du, du-du du-du
That was my evening
With Suzanne in the Opera House
Delivered to you
In her famous ‘Tom’s Diner’-style
So clap along if you feel
Like a room without a roof
We’ve come too far
To give up who we are
Du-du du-du, du-du du-du, du-du du-du, du-du du-du
