Zatopeks - Turkish Bread Chronicle lyrics
Smoked a joint down at the bus stop
With that cute German girl with dreads
Took my seat, it's nearly 2am, a few more braincells dead
Greek girl sitting next to me, we ate Turkish bread
And talked about the European Union - it's effects on the Greek economy
She said 'ship', I thought she said 'sheep'
She put her head upon my shoulder, yeah, we drifted off to sleep
Before you realise everyone is gone, the building is empty
The lights are still on, talk into the morning
Goodbyes are said, what am I left with?
A broken heart and a loaf of this half-eaten Turkish bread
She told me 'bout her life in Greece - society built arund debate
Is that the German border? Man, I hope this bus will be delayed
They sit around just dodging work exactly like we do at home
'And just remember, boy, that Athens is much prettier than Rome'
And before you realise everyone is gone
The buildings they're empty the lights they're still on
Walk into the morning where goodbyes are said
But what am I left with? Yeah before I realise
The Greek girl she's gone the bus is nearly empty
The lights are coming on, she disembarks at Amsterdam
A few goodbyes are said, I take another bite
Of this delicious Turkish bread
