These Are Words Sinatra Should have Sung

Where Heavy Fog Has Hung

 

These are the words Sinatra should have sung

The icy bridge before spring has sprung

Can’t deny where heavy fog has hung

These bitter tears oh how they stung,

 

There should be a ransom for a broken heart

Should have seen it coming from the very start

That’s the way two lovers drift apart

Some frivolous fools have it down to an art,

 

They don’t mind tearing your world apart

Buried in a pit covered in lime like Mozart

The power of the lover’s poisoned dart

And they think they’re so clever and smart,

 

This city’s like a graveyard of stone

Easy to get lost in easy to be alone

A cold empty voice on the telephone

The seed of unfaithfulness was sown,

 

Oh my look just how you’ve grown

Never again to be my own

Funny how the truth gets shown

Sitting in the dark at my home,

 

These are the words Sinatra should have sung

The icy bridge before spring has sprung

Can’t deny where heavy fog has hung

These bitter tears oh how they stung,

My little angel must have gone insane

New lyrics for this abysmal rain

Those splinters in my walking cane

Like memories they cause some pain.

Using Mozart as a rhyme was inventive, particularly in a reference to how he was buried.

Kosher are your interpretations always so intellectually lobotomized?

Of course.

That was a comment on craft. I thought the reference was inventive.

Kosher thank you. Yes, you connected the dots. Mozart went largely unappreciated in his time much like a more recent artist that you might enjoy and that's Nick Drake who sold record CD's posthumously. Check him out. I love the guy's work.

Maui, interesting video. When Sinatra was a young heart throb and dressing like one too. He had an incredible range, It's said that Jim Morrison of the Doors had 2 favorite crooners Bing and Old Blue Eyes. Also, Sinatra once acknowledged Tony Benette as having the best "pipes" in the business, but I think Tony sang a lot of dumbass tunes until he got older and became the Duke of Cool later in life.
