Lana Del Rey – Off to the Races

My old man is a bad man, but
I can’t deny the way he holds my hand,
And he grabs me, he has me by my heart.
He doesn’t mind I have a Las Vegas past,
He doesn’t mind I have an LA crass way about me,
He loves me with every beat of his cocaine heart.

Swimming pool glimmering, darling,
White bikini off with my red nail polish.
Watch me in the swimming pool bright blue ripples you
Sitting sipping on your black Cristal.
Oh, yeah…

Light of my life, fire of my loins,
Be a good baby, do what I want.
Light of my life, fire of my loins,
Give me them gold coins, gimme them coins.

And I’m off to the races, cases of Bacardi chasers,
Chasing me all over town,
Cause he knows I’m wasted, facing
Time again at Riker’s Island and I won’t get out.
Because I’m crazy, baby, I need you to come here and save me.
I’m your little scarlet, starlet singing in the garden,
Kiss me on my open mouth,
Ready for you…

My old man is a tough man, but
He’s got a soul as sweet as blood red jam.
And he shows me, he knows me,
Every inch of my tar black soul,
He doesn’t mind I have a flat broke down life.
In fact he says he thinks it’s why he might like about me,
Admires me, the way I roll like a rolling stone.

Likes to watch me in the glass room bathroom, Chateau Marmont
Slippin’ on my red dress, puttin’ on my makeup,
Glass film, perfume, cognac, lilac,
Fumes, says it feels like heaven to him.

Light of his life, fire of his loins,
Keep me forever, tell me you own me.
Light of your life, fire of your loins,
Tell me you own me, gimme them coins.

And I’m off to the races, cases of Bacardi chasers,
Chasing me all over town,
Cause he knows I’m wasted, facing
Time again at Riker’s Island and I won’t get out.
Because I’m crazy, baby I need you to come here and save me.
I’m your little scarlet, starlet singing in the garden,
Kiss me on my open mouth…

Now I’m off to the races, laces,
Leather on my waist is tight and I am fallin’ down.
I can see your face is shameless, Cipriani’s basement.
Love you, but I’m going down,
God, I’m so crazy, baby, I’m sorry that I’m misbehaving.
I’m your little harlot, starlet, Queen of Coney Island.
Raising hell all over town,
Sorry ’bout it…

My old man is a thief, and
I’m gonna stay and pray with him ’til the end.
But I trust in the decision of the Lord to watch over us,
Take him when he may, if he may.
I’m not afraid to say that I’d die without him.
Who else is gonna put up with me this way?
I need you, I breathe you, I never leave you.
They would rue the day I was alone without you,
You’re lying with your gold chain on, cigar hanging from your lips,
I said “Hon’, you never looked so beautiful as you do now, my man.”

And we’re off to the races, places,
Ready, set, the gate is down and now we’re goin’ in,
To Las Vegas chaos, Casino Oasis, honey, it is time to spin.
Boy you’re so crazy, baby, I love you forever not maybe,
You are my one true love, you are my one true love.

You are my one true love…

Prevod pesme

Hrlim u trku

Moj matori je loš čovek, ali
Ne mogu da poreknem način na koji mi drži ruku,
I ščepa me, predana sam mu svim srcem.
Ne smeta mu što imam neku prošlost u Las Vegasu,
Ne smeta mu što posedujem neku LA odvratnost,
Voli me svakim otkucajem njegovog srca od kokaina.

Bazen svetluca, dragi,
Skidam beli bikini svojim uglancanim crvenim noktima.
Gledaj me u bazenu svetlih plavih talasa
Dok sediš na i gutaš svoju pilulu.
O, da…

Svetlosti mog života, vatro mojih kukova,
Budi dobar dušo, radi ono što ja kažem.
Svetlosti mog života, vatro mojih kukova,
Daj mi te dukate, daj mi te dukate.

I hrlim u trku, slučaj otražnjivanja,
Dok me juri kroz ceo grad,
Jer on zna da sam iscrpljena, gledam
Iznova u ostrvo Rikers i neću se izvući.
Jer sam luda, dušo, treba mi da dođeš ovde i sačuvaš me.
Tvoja sam crvenokosa, crvenokosa koja peva u dvorištu,
Poljubi me u moja otvorena usta,
Spremna sam za tebe…

Moj matori je težak čovek, ali
Ima dušu slatku poput džema crvenog kao krv.
I pokazuje mi, zna me,
Svaki inč moje duše crne kao katran,
Ne smeta mu što vodim jednoličan, prazan život.
U stvari kaže da misli da je možda to ono što voli kod mene,
Divi mi se, način na koji se kotrljam poput nekog kotrljajućeg kamena.

Voli da me gleda u tuš kabini u kupatilu, Chateau Marmont
Svlačenje moje crvene haljinice, šminkanje,
Stakleni ploče za film, parfem, konjak, jorgovan,
Para, kaže da se oseća kao u raju.

Svetlosti mog života, vatro mojih kukova,
Budi dobar dušo, radi ono što ja kažem.
Svetlosti mog života, vatro mojih kukova,
Kaži da me želiš, daj mi te dukate.

I hrlim u trku, slučaj otražnjivanja,
Dok me juri kroz ceo grad,
Jer on zna da sam iscrpljena, gledam
Iznova u ostrvo Rikers i neću se izvući.
Jer sam luda, dušo, treba mi da dođeš ovde i sačuvaš me.
Tvoja sam crvena, crvena koja peva u dvorištu,
Poljubi me u moja otvorena usta…

Sada hrlim u trku, čipke,
Koža oko moga struka je uska i padam.
Vidim da me gledaš bez srama, Ciprianijev podrum.
Volim te, ali padam,
Bože, tako sam luda, dušo, žao mi je što ponašam nedolično.
Tvoja sam mala bludnica, crvenokosa, Kraljica ostrva Koni.
Pakao se širi svud po gradu,
Izvini zbog toga…

Moj matori je lopov, i
Ostaću i moliću se sa njim do kraja.
Ali verujem u Gospodovu odluku da nas nadgleda,
Uzme ga kad može, ako može.
Ne plaši me da kažem da bih umrla bez njega.
Ko će drugi da me ovakvu prihvati?
Trebaš mi, udišem te, nikad te ne ostavljam,
Ležiš sa svojim zlatnim lancem na sebi, cigareta visi sa tvojih usana,
Rekla sam „Dragi, nikada nisi izgledao tako lepo kao sada, moj muškarcu.“

Sada hrlimo u trku, mesta,
Spremni, pozor, kapija se spustila i krećemo,
U haos Las Vegasa, Oazis kazino, dušo, vreme je da zavrtimo.
Dečko ti si lud, dušo, volim te zauvek bez sumnje,
Ti si moja jedina prava ljubav, ti si moja jedina prava ljubav.

Ti si moja jedina prava ljubav…

    “Off to the Races” has been lyrically described as “a freak show of inappropriate co-dependency”
