Esta la estaba cantando el otro día en el parque, mientras cruzaba un puente que se movía mucho. Tengo un extraño sentido del humor.

Pensé que ya la había subido pero no la encuentro, así que allá va!

London brigde is broken down

London Bridge is broken down,

Broken down, broken down.

London Bridge is broken down,

My fair lady.

Build it up with wood and clay,

Wood and clay, wood and clay,

Build it up with wood and clay,

My fair lady.

Wood and clay will wash away,

Wash away, wash away,

Wood and clay will wash away,

My fair lady.

Build it up with bricks and mortar,

Bricks and mortar, bricks and mortar,

Build it up with bricks and mortar,

My fair lady.

Bricks and mortar will not stay,

Will not stay, will not stay,

Bricks and mortar will not stay,

My fair lady.

Build it up with iron and steel,

Iron and steel, iron and steel,

Build it up with iron and steel,

My fair lady.

Iron and steel will bend and bow,

Bend and bow, bend and bow,

Iron and steel will bend and bow,

My fair lady.

Build it up with silver and gold,

Silver and gold, silver and gold,

Build it up with silver and gold,

My fair lady.

Silver and gold will be stolen away,

Stolen away, stolen away,

Silver and gold will be stolen away,

My fair lady.

Set a man to watch all night,

Watch all night, watch all night,

Set a man to watch all night,

My fair lady.

Suppose the man should fall asleep,

Fall asleep, fall asleep,

Suppose the man should fall asleep?

My fair lady.

Give him a pipe to smoke all night,

Smoke all night, smoke all night,

Give him a pipe to smoke all night,

My fair lady.

Suppose the pipe should fall and break?

Fall and break, fall and break,

Suppose the pipe should fall and break?

 My fair lady.

Then we must set a dog to watch,

A dog to watch, a dog to watch,

Then we must set a dog to watch,

My fair lady.

Suppose the dog should run away?

Run away, run away,

Suppose the dog should run away?

My fair lady.

Then we must chain him to a post.

To a post, to a post,

Then we must chain him to a post.

My fair lady.

En cuanto qué le pasó al final al pobre perrito, no lo pude encontrar.

Hablando de cosas random, el otro día en Problemática Educativa (una materia del profesorado de cs. de la UBA) una chica estaba contando que en la época de la última dictadura (1976-1983) prohibieron la canción de La Farolera porque consideraban que se trataba de PROSTITUCIÓN. Si, si, esa canción de “La Farolera tropezó, y en la calle se cayó, y al pasar por un cuartel se enamoró de un coronel” etc. No sé de qué me sorprendo si, entre otras expresiones y saberes culturales, prohibieron el libro de química “La cuba electrolítica” (porque cuba aparentemente es lo mismo que Cuba)  y al vector por ser…. chan, chan, chaaan…. subversivo!
