René and Georgette Magritte with Their Dog after the War - Paul Simon

René and Georgette Magritte with the dog after the war (Foto de Lothar Wolleh)


 La foto de arriba, obra de Lothar Wolleh, en la que se retrata al pintor René Magritte , su esposa Georgette y su perro, fue el referente que llevó al cantautor Paul Simon a dedicarle la maravillosa canción que pueden escuchar en el siguiente vídeo. Como verán, el vídeo elegido no es el original, el promocional. No encontré una copia de calidad, pero el destino quiso que hallase el excelente montaje elaborado por MHumberto, al cual quisiera felicitar efusivamente.

Letra original

Rene and Georgette Magritte
With their dog after the war
Returned to their hotel suite
And they unlocked the door
Easily losing their evening clothes
They danced by the light of the moon
To the Penguins, the Moonglows
The Orioles, and The Five Satins
The deep forbidden music
They'd been longing for
Rene and Georgette Magritte
With their dog after the war

Rene and Georgette Magritte
With their dog after the war
Were strolling down Christopher Street
When they stopped in a men's store
With all of the mannequins dressed in the style
That brought tears to their immigrant eyes
Just like The Penguins, the Moonglows
The Orioles, and The Five Satins
The easy stream of laughter
Flowing through the air
Rene and Georgette Magritte
With their dog apres la guerre
Side by side
They fell asleep
Decades gliding by like Indians
Time is cheap
When they wake up they will find
All their personal belongings
Have intertwined
Oh Rene and Georgette Magritte
With their dog after the war
Were dining with the power elite
And they looked in their bedroom drawer
And what do you think
They have hidden away
In the cabinet cold of their hearts?
The Penguins, the Moonglows
The Orioles, and The Five Satins
For now and ever after
As it was before
Rene and Georgette Magritte
With their dog after the war
