BAD MOON RISING
autori:

John C. Fogerty

è stato eseguito da:

CCR, John Fogerty, Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen

Brano scritto da John Fogerty nel 1969 ed incluso nell'album Green River; a dispetto della trama musicale apparentemente allegra, il testo dipinge scenari lugubri, da apocalisse.
Frasi quali "I hear hurricanes a blowin" o "hope you are quite prepared to die" evocano scenari inquietanti.
E' curioso però che la frase ricorrente, "there's a bad moon on the rise" sia interpretata da molti come "there's a bathroom on the right"

BAD MOON RISING

I see a bad moon a-rising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earth quakes and lightnin'.
I see bad times today.
Don't go 'round tonight
It's bound and take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.
I hear hurricanes a-blowing,
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
Don't go 'round tonight
It's bound and take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Look's like we're in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.
Don't go 'round tonight
It's bound and take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.
