      Joni Mitchell - the only joy in town Música y Letra

      I want to paint a picture
      Botticelli style
      Instead of Venus on a clam
      I'd paint this flower child
      "You are the air my flowers breathe"
      He calls, and the ladies turn around
      On the first day of Spring
      I'm looking at the only joy around
      
      He's the only joy around
      The only joy I found
      The only joy in town
      
      The Spanish steps are crowded
      Bunch of bodies brooding there
      Dead pan side-walk vendors
      Hustling vacant stares
      Making all the more exceptional
      This fool in a flower crown
      On the first day of Spring
      I'm looking at the only joy in town
      
      He's the only joy around
      The only joy I found
      The only joy in town
      
      The Botticelli black boy
      With the fuchias in his hair
      Is breathing in women like oxygen
      On the Spanish stairs
      In my youth I would have followed him
      All through this terra-cotta town
      On the first day of Spring
      We'd dance and sing
      And be the only joy around
      
      We'd be the only joy around
      The only joy in town
      He's the only joy I've found
      All day
      
      At night these streets are empty
      Where does everybody go
      Where are the brash and tender rooms
      In Roman candle glow
      Where are Fellini's circus'
      La Dolce Vita clowns
      On the first day of Spring
      I'm looking
      At the only joy in town
      
      He's the only joy around
      The only joy I found
      The only joy in town
