June 22 – The fucking Midnight Rambler is the bloody dark heart of the gig
That’s IMHO, of course, folks. And here it is, right from the opening night, a bit shakey at times, but it got all the basics the Rambler needs. The end is a bit rough, though, just a few seconds too early, but that doesn’t matter.
As this tour goes on, there will be a nice grow of this mini-rock’n’roll opera, and it will be the highlight of each show for the fans.
Just to remember what it’s all about, you’ll find the lyrics of that song (recommended read) just below the video! Enjoy:
Did you hear about the midnight rambler? Everybody got to go Did you hear about the midnight rambler? The one that shut the kitchen door He don't give you a hoot of a warning Wrapped up in a black cat cloak He don't go in the light of the morning He split the time the cock'rel crows I'm talkin' 'bout the midnight gambler The one you never seen before Yeah, I'm talkin' 'bout the midnight gambler Did you see him jump the garden wall? Sighin' down the wind so sadly Listen and you'll hear him moan Well, I'm talkin' about the midnight gambler Everybody got to go Did you hear about the midnight rambler? Well, honey, it's no rock 'n' roll show Well, I'm talkin' about the midnight gambler Yeah, the one you never seen before Don't you do that Don't do that Don't you do that Don't you, don't you do that Don't you, don't you do that [...] Well, you heard about the Boston... ! (Strangler, that is) It's not one of those Well, I'm talkin' 'bout the midnight The one that closed the bedroom door I'm called the hit-and-run raper in anger The knife-sharpened tippie-toe Or just the shoot 'em dead, brainbell jangler You know, the one you never seen before So if you ever meet the midnight rambler I'm coming down your marble hall Well, he's pouncing like a proud black panther Well, you can say I, I told you so Well, don't listen for the midnight rambler Play it easy, as you go I'm gonna smash down all your plate glass windows Put a fist, put a fist through your steel-plated door Did you hear about the midnight rambler? He'll leave his footprints up and down your hall And did you hear about the midnight gambler? And did you see me make my midnight call? And if you ever catch the midnight rambler I'll steal your mistress from under your nose I'll go easy with your cold fanged anger I'll stick my knife right down your throat, baby And it hurts!
