cenas de Aniki Bóbó (1942) - Manoel de Oliveira

"Porque, fiquem sabendo, o êxito de um mendigo depende da sua capacidade de contar uma boa história. Primeiro que tudo, e o mais rápido possível, deve «filar» a vítima. Depois, deve contar a história que mais esteja de acordo com a personalidade e o temperamento dessa vítima em particular. Aqui levanta-se a maior dificuldade: no preciso momento em que a filar, deve começar a contá-la. Quase não há tempo para preparativos porque terá de adivinhar, num simples relance, qual a natureza da vítima e imaginar um enredo que lhe vá direito ao coração. O vagabundo de sucesso è um artista."

Chicken With its Head Cut Off  (1999) - The Magnetic Fields

Eligible, not too stupid
Intelligible and cute as Cupid
Knowledgeable, but not always right
Salvageable and free for the night

Well, my heart's running round
Like a chicken with its head cut off
All around the barnyard
falling in and out of love
Poor thing's blind as a bat
Getting up, falling down, getting up
Who'd fall in love with a chicken with its head cut off?
(Whoa, Nelly)

My wife doesn't understand me
Many dozens hope to land me
I'm for free love, and I'm in free fall
This could be love or nothing at all

Well, my heart's running round
Like a chicken with its head cut off
All around the barnyard 
falling in and out of love
Poor thing's blind as a bat
Getting up, falling down, getting up
Who'd fall in love with a chicken with its head cut off?

We don't have to be stars exploding in the night
Or electric eels under the covers
We don't have to be anything quite so unreal
Let's just be lovers...

Well, my heart's running round
Like a chicken with its head cut off
All around the barnyard 
falling in and out of love
Poor thing's blind as a bat
Getting up, falling down, getting up
Who'd fall in love with a chicken with its head cut off?
(It ain't pretty)
