divaTunes: ’27’ (Amy Winehouse Dedication) M.I.A.

The entire music community is still reeling over the loss of Amy Winehouse this past Saturday (7/23), but some are expressing their grief through song.  Fellow Brit M.I.A. has released “27,” an unreleased demo in honor of the late Winehouse:

“i recorded this song B4 vickileekx and never put it out. its a unfinished demo. R.I.P A.M.Y.”

Listen and read the lyrics below:

said your all mouth and no brains 
all rock stars go to heaven 
you said you’ll be dead at 27 
when we drunk in a English tavern 
the owner poured you the Bourbon 
and you drunk your self so rotten 
he got so rich he bought a Bentley 
and moved himself to Devon

you started dirty dancing 
and you bar tended a dozen 
i took you to the clinic 
to get you clean but you couldn’t 
said in 2 days ur 27 and and ur destiny was comin 
and ur papa passed so sudden 
and left you with lil somin

you blew that money on a mountain of drugs 
and staged your self a bedin 
a month later when i popped in 
your still high but the winter set in 
i bought you a coffee and a muffin 
and you quoted me some Lenin 
i wished i was that clever 
but thats what kept me coming 
your friendship did mean somin 
but you left me for nothin 
when i left, you befriended a rope 
and i found you both were hanging.
