Cooper

Notas

Marie: Agent Cooper? Per: Or Alice Cooper? Marie: Don’t ask me, you wrote it. Per: The idea came from the Cooper racing car, the kind that Jim Clark used to win the ’60s Indianapolis races with. But if you say “Cooper”, people will naturally assume that it’s a man. So I decided that Cooper was a woman. And it becomes something different. A little short story… just like that. Marie: “Just like that… that’s Tommy Cooper. Per: Oh, stop it.

Cooper went out late last night
I heard the slam from her door
Foggy ways
November daze
All the white wolves were smiling

Cooper went out walking the clouds
She left everything in a mess
“Shut your mouth when you talk to me”
Her words were always so small

And there’s a sound from the telephone
When can I say she’s coming home?
Leave me the number you’re dialing from
And may I ask who’s calling?
May I ask who’s calling?

Cooper went out
3 o’clock sharp
I heard the bells from the church
Someone said they saw a car
Picking her up by the station

Cooper went out and that’s all there is
I’m just no one from next door
Everything will be alright
When all the flowers have cried

Then there’s a voice on the telephone
When can I say she’s coming home?
Leave me the number you’re dialing from
And may I ask who’s callin’? (Who’s calling?)
May I ask who’s calling? (Who’s calling?)
May I ask who’s calling?
