Description

Handwritten lyrics by Joey Ramone for the song ‘She Talks to Rainbows,’ unsigned, penned in black ballpoint on two off-white 8.5 x 11 sheets. The lyrics, in full: “She’s a dark dark girl, got that gleam in her eye, quick as a whip, sweet as pie, stops traffic, at a blink of an eye, she talks to birds, she talks to angels, she talks to bees, she talks to trees, she dont talk to me, she drives me outta my mind, she drives me outta my mind, she talks to birds, she talks to rainbows, talks to fleas (leaves), she talk to, she dont talk to me, wont talk to me.” Ramone has crossed out the line, “she’s a witch.” In fine condition. 'She Talks to Rainbows' is the penultimate song on the Ramones' the fourteenth and final studio album, Adios Amigos. The song was later covered in 1999 by Ronnie Spector of the Ronettes.




From the Ramones and Punk Collection of Daniel Rey, and accompanied by a letter of provenance.
