COLIN HARE, NOTHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT, 1971
Colin Hare, junto con Pete Dello y Ray Cane, formaba parte del grupo Honeybus al finales de los sesenta. En 1971, editó en solitario el álbum “March Hare”, una verdadera joya que contiene grandes canciones, entre ellas el tema titulado “Nothing to write home about”, en el que Colin nos regala su magnífica y pausada voz, elevándola a un nivel de dulzura y candidez incomparables, mientras se preguntaba, por que se marchó su amor.
NOTHIG TO WRITE HOME ABOUT
Wonder why she went away,
Wonder why she wouldn’t stay,
Oh, I would have loved her anyway.
Playing games was not my scene,
But how she loved just to act the queen,
Oh, it wasn’t as it might have been.
She wasn’t bright,
She wasn’t anything to write home about,
Suddenly she seemed like everything,
I had ever needed.
Wonder why she had to go,
She was made but I was slow,
Oh, how I’d really like to know.
