Joni Mitchell - Carey (2021 Remaster) Lyrics


[Verse 1]
The wind is in from Africa
Last night I couldn’t sleep
Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here, Carey
But it’s really not my home
My fingernails are filthy
I got beach tar on my feet
And I miss my clean white linen
And my fancy French cologne

[Chorus]
Oh, Carey, get out your cane
And I’ll put on some silver
Oh, you’re a mean old Daddy
But I like you fine

[Verse 2]
Come on down to the Mermaid Café and I will
Buy you a bottle of wine
And we’ll laugh and toast to nothing
And smash our empty glasses down
Let’s have a round for these freaks and these soldiers
A round for these friends of mine
Let’s have another round for the bright red devil
Who keeps me in this tourist town

[Chorus]
Come on, Carey, get out your cane
I’ll put on some silver
Oh, you’re a mean old Daddy
But I like you
I like you, I like you, I like you

[Verse 3]
Maybe I’ll go to Amsterdam
Or maybe I’ll go to Rome
And rent me a grand piano
And put some flowers ’round my room
But let’s not talk about fare-thee-wells now
The night is a starry dome
And they’re playin’ that scratchy rock and roll
Beneath the Matala Moon

[Chorus]
Come on, Carey, get out your cane
And I’ll put on some silver
You’re a mean old Daddy
But I like you

[Verse 4]
The wind is in from Africa
Last night I couldn’t sleep
Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here
But it’s really not my home
Maybe it’s been too long a time
Since I was scramblin’ down in the street
Now they got me used to that clean white linen
And that fancy French cologne

[Chorus]
Oh, Carey, get out your cane
I’ll put on my finest silver
We’ll go to the Mermaid Café
Have fun tonight
I said, oh, you’re a mean old Daddy
But you’re out of sight
