Annotationen

Der erste Track vom Album Revenge zeigt ein Interesse der Eurythmics an Powerpop statt Synthpop. Die Nummer rockt mit einem treibenden Backbeat. Annie Lennox' Stimme ist effektvoll gedoppelt mit begleitenden Koloraturen. Das ist eine Praxis, die im Elektropop der 00er und 10er Jahren ubiquitär verwendet ist.

Lyrics

Well I was born an original sinner I was borne from original sin And if I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done There'd be a mountain of money piled up to my chin My mother told me good, my mother told me strong She said, be true to yourself and you can't go wrong But there's just one thing that you must understand You can fool with your brother But don't mess with a missionary man Don't mess with a missionary man Don't mess with a missionary man Don't mess with a missionary man Oh, the missionary man, he's got God on his side He's got the saints and apostles backing up from behind Black eyed looks from those Bible books He's a man with a mission, got a serious mind There was a woman in the jungle and a monkey on a tree The missionary man, he was following me He said, stop what you're doing, get down upon your knees I've a message for you that you better believe Well I was born an original sinner I was borne from original sin And if I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done There'd be a mountain of money Don't mess with a missionary man Missionary man Missionary man Missionary man Don't mess with a missionary man Missionary man
