on the cover of a magazine

Este verso lo ví hace un par de noches en una puerta del carrer de la Cera.
No se sí tiene que ver, pero me trajo a la cabeza una de esas canciones grabadas en el disco duro de la cabeza,
"Little Queenie", del Chuck Berry.
Uno de los más.
Dió pasto a generaciones de musicos y de comedores de rock´n´roll

La canción habla del Tema.
Rollo "15 años tiene mi amor", que dió pié a una bonita performance dels J.A.G. hace años, sobre las distintas varas de medir la decencia u obscenidad de las expresiones amorosas pre-mayoria de edad.



I got lumps in my throat,
When I saw her comin' down the aisle.
I got the wiggles in my knees,
When she looked at me and sweetly smiled,
There she is again,
Standin' over by the record machine,

Lookin' like a model,
On the cover of a magazine,

But she's too cute,
To be a minute over seventeen,

Meanwhile, I was thinkin':

She's in the mood, no need 'n break it.
I got the chance and I oughta take it.
If she'll dance, we can make it.
C'mon Queenie let's shake it.

Go, go, go, Little Queenie.

Meanwhile, I'se still thinkin':

If it's a slow song, we'll omit it.
If it's a rockin', that'll get it.
And if it's good, she'll admit it.
C'mon Queenie, let's get wit' it.
