Waterloo Sunset

Решил я почитать про песенку "Waterloo Sunset" и нашёл две прелюбопытнейших ссылки на английском языке:

- и так далее.
А всё потому, что строчка "Terry meets Julie, waterloo station every friday night" сразу показалась мне неслучайной.

Полагаю, более продвинутые фанаты "Kinks" давно уже знают все обстоятельства появления этой песни и все дополнительные смыслы, кроющиеся в этой и им подобных строках. Друзья, не поделитесь? Буду премного обязан.

Причина обычная: собираюсь перевести эту песню на русский язык. После "Village Green" вошёл во вкус... :)




Waterloo Sunset

Dirty old river, must you keep rolling
Flowing into the night
People so busy, makes me feel dizzy
Taxi light shines so bright
But I don't need no friends
As long as I gaze on waterloo sunset
I am in paradise

Every day I look at the world from my window
But chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunset's fine

Terry meets julie, waterloo station
Every friday night
But I am so lazy, don't want to wander
I stay at home at night
But I don't feel afraid
As long as I gaze on waterloo sunset
I am in paradise

Every day I look at the world from my window
But chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunset's fine

Millions of people swarming like flies 'round waterloo underground
But terry and julie cross over the river
Where they feel safe and sound
And the don't need no friends
As long as they gaze on waterloo sunset
They are in paradise

Waterloo sunset's fine
