Testo della canzone Shangri La dei Kinks
Album: Arthur
Now that you’ve found your paradise,
This is your kingdom to command.
You can go outside and polish your car
Or sit by the fire in your Shngri-La.
Here’s your reward for working so hard:
Gone are the lavat’ries in the back yard;
Gone are the days when you dreamed of that car.
You just want to sit in your Shangri-La.
Put on your slippers and sit by the fire “
You’ve reached your top and you just can’t get any higher…
You’re in your place and you know where you are.
…in your Shangri-La.
Sit back in your old rocking-chair.
You need not worry “ you need not care.
You can’t go anywhere!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a!
The little man who gets the train got a mortgage hangin’ over his head…
But he’s to scared to complain. …’cause he’s conditioned that way.
Time goes by and he pays off his debt “ got a T.V. set and a radio…
For seven shillings a week.
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a!

And all the houses in the street have got a name
’Cause all the houses in the street; they look the same:
Same chimney puff; same little car; same window pane!
The neighbors call to tell you things that you should know.
They say their lines; they drink their tea; and then they go!
They tell your business in another Shangri-La!
The gas bills and the water rates, the payments on the car!
Too scared to think about how insecure you are!
Life ain’t so happy in your little Shangri-La!
Oh, Shangri-La! Shangri-La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la;
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la;
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a…
Put on your slippers and sit by the fire “
You’ve reached your top and you just can’t get any higher…
You’re in your place and you know where you are.
…in your Shangri-La.
Sit back in your old rocking-chair.
You need not worry “ you need not care.
You can’t go anywhere!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a!
Shangri-La-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a!
