Amy Jade Winehouse (14.09.1983-23.07.2011) ist DIE britische Soulsängerin und Songschreiberin unserer Zeit. Sie war gerade mal 19, als ihre kometenhafte Karriere startete. Ihre beiden Alben „Frank“ (2003) und „Back to Black“ (2006) verkauften sich 25 Mio Mal. Amy schrieb die meisten Texte selbst, sie erweckte den Soul aus dem Dornröschenschlaf. 

Wir haben für euch den Song „Stronger than me“ aus dem Album Frank ausgesucht. Hier besingt Amy einen Wunschtraum: Feel like a Lady and you my Lady Boy. 

Have a Joyful Sunday!

Lyrics  ( Salaam Remi/ Amy Winehouse. Copyright: Emi April Music Inc., Emi Music Publishing Ltd., Salaam Remi Music Inc. )

You should be stronger than me. You been here 7 years longer than me.
Don’t you know you supposed to be the man? Not pale in comparison to who you think I am.
You always wanna talk it through, I don’t care. I always have to comfort you when I’m there. But that’s what I need you to do, stroke my hair.

‚Cause I’ve forgotten all of young love’s joy. Feel like a lady and you my lady boy.

You should be stronger than me. But instead you’re longer than frozen turkey. Why’d you always put me in control? All I need is for my man to live up to his role.

Always wanna talk it through, I’m okay. Always have to comfort you everyday. But that’s what I need you to do, are you gay?

‚Cause I’ve forgotten all of young love’s joy …

He said, „The respect I made you earn. Thought you had so many lessons to learn.“ I said, „You don’t know what love is, get a grip . Sound as if you’re reading from some other tired script.“

I’m not gonna meet your mother anytime. I just wanna grip your body over mine. Please tell me why you think that’s a crime.

I’ve forgotten all of young love’s joy …

You should be stronger than me. You should be stronger than me
