Bad Intentions

 

Am
This is the story of three young men
Dm
Been practicing the way of Zen
Am                                                Em-c  Em
Got tired of being poor ol' Zennie Bums -
Am
Terry drove a taxi and had a connection
Dm
Said if they could get through the customs inspection
Am            Em-c     Em Am
Could tuck away a tidy sum
Am/A       Am/G             D/F#
 
Come on boys don't be idiots      (chorus)
      Dm7/F       E11         E-c


You gonna get--into a shi-load a trouble
Terry’d been a priest but he turned in his robes
Enamored with the world of coke
Shootin' smack with new friends in their pads
Jackie was a carpenter had taught yoga
Had a history though of guns, fightin', and dope
The third was a handsome ladies man named Pat

      (chorus)

Dm6
You might think criminies are these guys Zen?
          Am

Aren't Buddhists pure and disciplined?
Dm6
Wake up silly — they're just men
        Am                                         Em-c Em Am

Like Muslims, Jews, Catholics, and Presbyterians
 
In Terry's kitchen drinking Napa Valley wine
Talking about old monastic times
Now they wanted adventure, to travel, and to buy things
Late that night Terry laid out his plan
A kilo each of H from Thailand
Through Singapore where few dared getting hanged

      (chorus)

Pay seventeen — sell for 250 K
Terry'd get front money from his mentor any day
The rules we don't use and looking at Jackie ---- no guns
So? he said and Pat nodded he's in
Well if the to hell, said Jackie, is paved with good intents
The path to heaven must be paved with bad ones     

(chorus)


They did it - they made it to Honolulu
Clean cut with tennis racquets — they would of fooled you
Pat went first — sailed right through customs
Jackie blew it big though and they busted him
 
Stoned he pulled the passport from his coat
Syringe flew out 'neath the agents nose
Terry went back hid his kilo on the plane
Flew round the world a tryin' to get it back again
 
Twenty years iater Jackie's soon to be released
Was out of prison in again — I hope he finds his peace
Pat went straight like Kennedy --- invested his money well
After five years Terry'd blown a million bucks
Madness, rehab, couldn't see his darling son
OD'd one night in a posh Bangkok hotel

      (chorus)


You might say these three went bad
Spreadin' poison ---- standard business practice
Would they have done it though if it hadn't been a crime?
Hello Pat wherever — To Jackie welcome back
Rest in peace dear Terry who strayed so from the path
And the moral of this story is ---- oh never mind==


(chorus)

 


Indonesian

Niat Buruk

Ini adalah kisah tiga pemuda
Telah berlatih jalan Zen agama Budha
Bosan menjadi pengikut Zen yang malang
Terry mengendarai taksi dan memiliki koneksi
Mengatakan jika mereka bisa melewati pemeriksaan pabean
Bisa mendapatkan jumlah yang lumayan banyak

Ayo laki-laki jangan jadi idiot---------------------------------- (chorus)
Kalian akan mendapatkan terlibat banyak masalah

Terry pernah menjadi pendeta tetapi dia menyerahkan jubahnya
Terpesona dengan dunia cocaine
Menyuntik heroin dengan teman-teman baru di tempat tingal mereka
Jackie adalah seorang tukang kayu yang telah mengajar yoga
Punya sejarah tentang senjata, perkelahian, dan obat bius
Yang ketiga adalah seorang pria menawan bernama Pat .
-----------------
(chorus)


Anda mungkin berpikir orang-orang ini adalah Zen?
Bukankah umat Buddha murni dan disiplin?
Bangunlah— mereka hanya laki-laki
Seperti Muslim, Yahudi, Katolik, dan Presbiterian

Di dapur Terry mereka minum anggur lembah Napa
Berbicara tentang masa biara lama
Sekarang mereka ingin berpetualang, bepergian, dan membeli barang
Larut malam itu Terry menyampaikan rencananya
Satu kilo masing-masing heroin dari Thailand
Melalui Singapura di mana hanya sedikit yang berani digantung
----------
(chorus)

Bayar tujuh belas — jual seharga 250 K
Terry akan mendapatkan uang muka dari mentornya kapan saja
Aturannya kami tidak gunakan dan melihat Jackie ---- tanpa senjata
Jadi? katanya dan Pat mengangguk dia bergabung
Nah jika jalan neraka, kata Jackie, diaspal dengan niat baik
Jalan menuju surga harus diaspal dengan yang buruk
----------------------
(chorus)

Mereka berhasil - mereka berhasil sampai ke Honolulu
Bertampang rapi dengan raket tenis — mereka akan menipu Anda juga
Pat pergi lebih dulu — berlayar melewati bea cukai
Jackie mengacaukannya dan mereka menangkapnya

Sakau dia menarik paspor dari mantelnya
Jarum suntik terbang keluar di bawah hidung agen
Terry kembali menyembunyikan kilonya di pesawat
Terbang keliling dunia mencoba mendapatkannya kembali

Dua puluh tahun lagi Jackie akan segera dibebaskan
Keluar masuk penjara lagi — saya harap dia menemukan kedamaiannya
Pat hidup normal lagi seperti Kennedy --- menginvestasikan uangnya dengan baik
Setelah lima tahun, Terry kehikangan satu juta dolar
Kegilaan, rehab, tidak bisa melihat putra kesayangannya
OD satu malam di hotel Bangkok yang mewah
-----------------------
(chorus)

Anda mungkin mengatakan ketiganya menjadi buruk
Menyebarkan racun ---- praktik bisnis standar
Apakah mereka akan melakukannya jika itu tidak melawan hukum?
