Hi, friends of Mudcat Café!

I'm here to ask you another help for "translate" the "Janschese language"!

Now I'm looking for the lyrics of "Summer heat", from the CD "When the circus comes to town" and "Live at 12 bar" (you know, I LOVE Bert... but not so much, ok?).

Thanks for the help!

Boy, that guy better take some diction lessons! I listened to a couple of sound samples at Yahoo! Music and only a couple of lines were intelligible:

Ain't nothin' movin' on the street.
...
Ain't life sweet in the high summer heat?

Often a couple of phrases like this are sufficient to find the complete lyrics on the Internet, using Google, but it didn't work this time. Evidently nobody out there is posting lyrics to his songs. No wonder!

lets see how far i get...


--

still breathless on my feet(?)
ain't nothing movin' on the street
no cars no traffic
a stuck-on heart
ain't life sweet
in the high summer heat

must be a dream in this crazy world
it's so hot like a sweet noraaaaa
no pain no heartache
no trouble to unfold
ain't life sweet
in the high summer heat

time is standing still
he hangs in the air
his hands aint movin
but he still doesn't care
but he ain't goin nowhere

tick tock in the heat of the day
he never stops and nothin gets in his way
but he's got nothin to say
in the high summer heat

just lying and lazing in the sun
for tomorrow may never ever come
i dream of water splashing all over me
in the high summer heat

i'm not sure about "feet" or "stuck-on heart"
and i'm positive that "nora" is wrong, but if you're singing jansch then just mumble the lines you're not sure about. call it a tribute!

anyway, i won't hear a bad thing said against him, master of the folk universe as he is

According to official lyrics which was printes at the
back of poster;


In the still breathless summer heet
Ain't nothing movin' on the street
No cars no traffic
There're stuck on hold, ain't life sweet
In the hot, summer heat

Must be a dream in this crazy world
So hot like a sweet mirage
No pain, no heartache
No trouble to unfold, ain't life sweet
In the hot, summer heat

Time is standing still, he hands in the air
His hands ain't movin' but he still doesn't care
For he ain't goin nowhere

Tic-tocking, in the heat of the day
He never stops, ain't nothin' gets in his way
But he's got nothin' to say
In the hot, summer heat

Just lying, and lazin' in the sun
For tomorrow, may never ever come
I dream of water splashing
Icy cold, all over me
In the hot, summer heat
