Generation Sex

Version avec samples (3:32)

Italian journalist: Signora, nella vita che vi piacce di più?
Interpreter: What’s the thing you like most in life?
Anita Ekberg: I like lots of things, but there are three things I like most: love, love and love.
Interpreter: She said: “mentre le molte cose che mi piacciono ci sono strictamente tre: amore, amore, amore.”

Generation sex
The rights
Of girls
Who want to take their clothes off.
As long as we can all watch
That’s okay.
And generation sex
The type
Of guys
You wouldn’t leave your kids with
And shouts “off with their heads” if
They get laid.

Lovers watch their backs
As hacks
In Macs
Take snaps
Through telephoto lenses
Chase Mercedes Benz’
Through the night.
A mourning nation weeps
And wails
But keeps
The sales
Of evil tabloids healthy.
The poor protect the wealthy
In this world.

Generation sex Generation sex
The sperm
Of worms
Into the eggs of field-mice Generation
So you can look real nice Generation
For the boys
And generation sex Generation sex
Is me
And you
And we
Should really all know better Generation
It doesn’t really matter Generation
What you say.

Italian journalist: Please Miss, dormi in pijama o in camicia da notte?
Interpreter: How do you sleep, in pyjamas or nightgown?
Anita Ekberg: Neither. I sleep only in two drops of French perfume.
Interpreter: Solo con due goccie de profumo francese.
