Cocorosie: Lemonade


The American sister’s,  Bianca “Coco” and Sierra “Rosie” Casady, met up and France in 2003 to create their band, Cocorosie.  Incorporating pop, blues, electronic, hip hop, and opera, their style is called “Freak Folk.”   My girlfriend left her CD in my car, and the other night I heard… “Jesus Loves me, Not your nigger wife, not you nigger friends.”  I was shocked!  So I looked more into them.  Strange video concepts.  Unique singing styles. Cool instrument usage, (children’s toys.)

 Here is their video, Lemonade. The embed didn’t work for some reason.

It was Cinco de Mayo
Pillow case on his head
No more breathing time
An ambulance sped
It sped round every corner
Calling out his name

Shot a rabbit from the back seat window
Sat and watched in the summer corn row
Ate icecream in a desert dream
Got love in father seeing you
Too hot inside to hot outside
Lazy days when you said just go for a ride
We’ll sail on Spirit Lake,
Me, my pappy, and his lemonade

Tim and tina were my parents’ names
They got engaged they were inflamed
Seduced by the lie of butterflies

How they shimmer, how they glimmer
Those butterflies

We seven kids, we almost died
Nearly put to death
But lightning strike
Instead there was hot pink
Flashes in the sky
We climb the rocks in snowing rain
In search of magic power

To heal our mother’s pain

Shot a rabbit from the back seat window
Sat and watched in the summer corn row
Ate icecream in a desert dream
Got love in father seeing you
Too hot inside to hot outside
Lazy days when you said just go for a ride
We’ll sail on Spirit Lake.
Me, my pappy, and his lemonade
