The Lyrics

I rather enjoy George Ezra’s recent song “Budapest”. Notes on the web suggest that he wrote this before he had ever visited the city. It’s a beautifully simple 3-chord song, but somehow it reminds me of some well-known older songs.


C;Chh chh-chh, uh. Chh chh-chh, uh.C; x6

Back in Budapest, there’s a grand piano
In my hidden house - it’s a gold Castillo -
I’ve a treasure chest, also acres of a land that I’ve achieved
It is hard, but believe,
For you, I’d stop all that and leave.

Oh, my daddy’s rich; family don’t understand
My friends fear they’d lose if you take my hand,
And my artifacts - of them I’ve got a tonne or twenty-one,
And the list goes on,
But if you just say the words – I’ll up and run.

They’re not mean people, but they never make a change
We love everybody, but find foreigners quite strange
Give me one reason why I shouldn’t do just as I please
Hold me, baby
And all of this will go away.

I could lose it all, dah dah, dee dee dee
For you I’d leave it all, and still be happy.
Dah dah dah dah dah, dee dee dee dee,
Dah dah dah dah dah,
For you.., you.. I’d leave it all.

Back in Budapest, there’s a grand piano
In my treasure house - it’s a gold Castillo
Dah dah dah dah dah,
But for you.., you.. I’d leave it all.
