LETRA

'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 sit sippin' on your black Cristal, 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, chasin' me all over town
Cuz he knows I'm wasted, facing
Time again on 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 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 room perfume Cognac lilac fume
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, chasin' me all over town
Cuz he knows I'm wasted, facing
Time again on 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 pay us, 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

Sobre Off to the Races

  • Esta canción tiene a Lana profesando su amor por su novio rico y gángster. Sin embargo, su relación al estilo de Bonnie & Clyde está condenada al fracaso.

    "Off to the Races" se inspira en el libro Lolita, escrito por Vladimir Nabokov, así como "Carmen" del mismo álbum. Lana es una gran fan de Nabokov y tiene su nombre tatuado en su brazo junto al nombre del poeta estadounidense Walt Whitman.

  • Lana retrata a un personaje (que es un híbrido de su propia imagen y la de Lolita) que tiene un pasado criminal de alcohol, desnudarse y gastar demasiado. Se enamora de un gángster rico que ama profundamente a las mujeres, las sustancias estupefacientes y el dinero. Esta persona no es completamente ficticia, Lana realmente tenía un problema con el alcohol cuando era una niña pequeña.

    Lana corre desenfrenada por la ciudad, haciendo fiestas y bebiendo en exceso. Aunque ambos son malas personas con un pasado oscuro, se adoran, a pesar de sus muchos defectos. Esto es una divergencia del clásico de Nabokov; sin embargo, como la devoción de Humberto a Lolita no es recíproca.
