Three Wishes Lyrics - Roger Waters

Review The Song (1)



(Woman's voice)
"I went and buy a....a gas bottle.
At first I wanted to buy a big one, but then I hadn't got enough money, so I had to buy a small one.
And I think if I bought a bigger one, then it would have been... the way I wanted it to be.
And then, er, we went home, and ...um...I put the children to bed.
And I tidied the flat and everything. And then...and they were asleep and everything was ok in the flat. I made them a bed in the bathroom. I carried them there and put on the gas bottle.
But today when I think back ... about that. If God did take me, then I would have been in hell because I wasn't right."

Reached back for the bottle
And rubbed against the lamp
Genie came out smiling
Like some Eastern tramp
He said hey boy what's happening
What is going on
You can have three wishes
If you don't take too long
I said well
sponsored links
I wish they all were happy on the Lebanon
Wish somebody'd help me write this song
I wish when I was young
My old man had not been gone
Genie said consider it done
There's something in the air
And you don't know what it is
You see someone through a window
Who you've just learned to miss
And the road leads on to glory but
You've used up your last wish
Your last wish
And you want her to come home
Genie said I'm sorry
But that's the way it goes
Where the hell's lamp sucker
It's time for me to go
Bye
There's something in the air
And you don't know what it is
You see someone through a window
Who you've just learned to miss
And the road leads on to glory but
You've used up your last wish
Your last wish
And you want her to come home
(Woman's voice)
I go there...ah... sometimes twice a year now, sometimes only once
and sometimes when I feel like crying... I'll just go ahead
