9 The Time Has Come / Slim Smith

Time Has Come / Slim Smith High Note 7

スリム・スミスの最後のシングル盤、ハーモニーはストレンジャー・コール。

このポジティブな詩とは裏腹に録音してから僅か数時間後にスリムは自殺してしまった、、、、。

色々な死にまつわる噂、母親はトカゲの尻尾のスプリッフを吸ったからと言う。

There is no time to sit around and wait.
Don’t you know the world, is of love and of hate?
Now is the time, to be strong, ‘cause we can’t go wrong:
Because the time has come..
The time has come, to be free, can’t you see?

Don’t you know that cheating, killing, backbiting, cannot help.
Can’t you see them problems, it’s everyday,
They’ve got to solve themselves.
Now is the time, we’ve got to be strong, we can’t go wrong:
Because the time has come..
The time has come, so..

(..)

Mercy!
There is no time to sit around and wait.
Don’t you know the world, is of love and it is of hate?
The time has come, the time has come..
To be free, so you see?
