El señor bibliotecario me pregunta si ya he escuchado mi canción, que acaba de salir. Es de Natalie Merchant. Al parecer, no conocer a Natalie Merchant equivale a haber vivido en una cueva toda la vida. Y no conocer a 10.000 maniacs todavía más. La bibliotecaria italiana lo confirma. Así que el señor bibliotecario, que a estas alturas ya se llama Gary, me dice que espere un poquito y me trae su ipod y me hace escuchar su canción preferida del último disco de la señora Merchant, que es la mía. Y oye, la verdad es que está bien bonita.

A escucharla ahora mismo aquí (click).

The adventures of Isabel

Isabel met an enormous bear,
Isabel, Isabel, she didn’t care;
The bear was hungry, the bear was ravenous,
The bear’s big mouth was cruel and cavernous.
The bear said, Isabel, glad to meet you,
How do, Isabel, now I’ll eat you!
Isabel, Isabel, she didn’t worry.
Isabel didn’t scream or scurry.
Washed her hands and she straightened her hair up,
Then Isabel ate the bear up.
Once in a night black as pitch

Isabel met a wicked old witch.
Witch’s face was cross and wrinkled,
Witch’s gums with teeth were sprinkled.
Ho, ho, Isabel! the old witch crowed,
I’ll turn you into an ugly toad!
Isabel, Isabel, didn’t worry,
Isabel didn’t scream or scurry,
Showed no rage and she showed no rancor,
Turned the witch into milk and drank her.

Isabel met a hideous giant,
Isabel so self reliant.
The giant was hairy, the giant was horrid,
One eye there in the middle of his forhead.
Good morning, Isabel, the giant said,
I’ll grind your bones to make my bread.
Isabel, Isabel, she didn’t worry,
Isabel didn’t scream or scurry.
Nibbled on his zwieback that she fed off,
And when it was gone, she cut the giant’s head off.

Isabel met a troublesome doctor,
Punched and poked and really shocked her.
The doctor’s talk was of coughs and chills
And the doctor’s satchel bulged with pills.
The doctor said whoa Isabel,
Swallow this, gonna make you well.
Isabel, Isabel, didn’t hurry,
Isabel didn’t scream or scurry.
Took those pills from the pill concocter,
Then Isabel cured the doctor.

P.D. de la dignidad: la Sole me acaba de demostrar que sí conocía 10.000 maniacs. A ver si eso me salva.
