Текст песни:

Well the room was pink and the signs were serious
Paperback dolls being slammed delirious
Feeling like a joke in the bar underneath
And it was Saturday night in the year of the good thief

Well I tumbled up the stairs the wrong way ’round
I hit my head on the ceiling when my feet hit the ground
And then the big dumb blonde in the gold fish bowl
Cried Ella’s in the band but she’s got no soul!
My friend John was a serious one
Buttoned up the back and a job half done
Lazy old boy when the good girls turn
His teeth get itchy and his rubber soles burn
When will he ever learn?

Well the night was spent and my money was young
And then I had to get home before my neck was wrung
And everybody danced in the same old way

And if I’m feeling old and desperate I’ll be back some day
My friend John was a serious one
Buttoned up the back and a job half done
Lazy old boy when the good girls turn
His teeth get itchy and his rubber soles burn
When will he ever learn?

  • I’ve been chasing diamonds, I’ve been chasing pearls I’ve been keeping company with cinnamon girls I swoon, do you see my head shake Stay tuned and I’ll entertain Hey hot stuff make mine a lemonade How long does a lifetime take And they all got down to the Cinderella quick step In living color, cheekbones like Johnny Depp When the whip came down it was no joke Came too soon, half drunk under a full moon Well I lost my sense of humor when my lips turned blue Now I know the right move is just whatever gets you through I swooned from the minute that I woke Stay tuned cause it just might rain Hey hot stuff make mine a cherry Coke Your logic’s driving me insane And they all got down to the Cinderella quick step In living color, cheekbones like Johnny Depp When the whip came down it was no joke Came too soon, half drunk under a full moon And then the music stopped playing And the lights came on There was no sign of Cinderella Cinderella was gone She left every heart broken Every good man cried Each and every one had that look upon their face like the ’60s just died And someone said I can hear the music I can hear the music I can hear the music Tell me if you hear the music say yes If you hear the music say yes If you hear the music say yes If you hear the music say yes If you hear the music say yes Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes Say yes yes yes yes Yes yes yes yes Yes yes yes yes Yes yes yes yes yes And they all got down to the Cinderella quick step In living color, cheekbones like Johnny Depp When the whip came down it was no joke Came too soon, half drunk under a full moon They all got down to the Cinderella quick step In living color, cheekbones like Johnny Depp When the whip came down it was no joke Came too soon, half drunk under a full moon Yeah
  • See that girl walking out amongst the fireflies In competition with no vision running clockwise Watch her glide through the panic of the headlights In conversation she’s salvation for the right price Krakatoa Eiffel Tower See how she gets busy in the magic hour Wall of China Frankenstein A miracle of science but a pantomime She’s ambition She’s striptease When she calls your name you fall to your knees She’s indelible Haute couture You’re the malady of which she’s the cure She’s indestructible See that girl making money from the get go Inside the bubble she’s the double of her ego Watch her slide through the panic of the headlights In conversation she’s salvation for the right price Prince of Darkness Chairman Mao Even though you’re dead to her she’ll show you anyhow Queen of England Helen of Troy She doesn’t even mind if you’re a girl or a boy She’s ambition She’s strip tease When she calls your name you fall to your knees She’s indelible Haute couture You’re the malady of which she’s the cure She’s indestructible She’s ambition She’s strip tease When she calls your name you fall to your knees She’s indelible Haute couture You’re the malady of which she’s the cure She’s indestructible She’s indestructible She’s indestructible She’s indestructible She’s indestructible

  • You wear your mask, I’ll wear mine They don’t come cheap, but they fit just fine You can be her and I can be him We can both sink when the rest don’t swim Little by little by little by little by little by little by little Little by little by little by little by little by all day long We can pretend that our fates are entwined The beautiful lies the beautiful kind Everybody knows that the sun still sets And everybody gives and everybody gets Little by little by little by little by little by little by little Little by little by little by little by little by all day long Little by little by little by little by little by little by little Little by little by little by little by little by all day long I can be the one that you just can’t shake Till you swear that your eyes go blind We can disappear till the sun burns a hole In the life that we left behind And I just won’t stop till my heart gives way And you and I are a long lost myth There’s nothing very much that I wouldn’t do To be the last of the men that you romanced with The last of the men that you romanced with Little by little by little by little by little by little by little Little by little by little by little by little by all day long Little by little by little by little by little by little by little Little by little by little by little by little by all day long You wear your mask I’ll wear mine They don’t come cheap but they fit just fine We can pretend that our fates are entwined The beautiful lies the beautiful kind
  • It started out as nothing in the strangest sense He was never in his right mind, no defense She prayed for his attention, often on repeat Every time she heard his name and his heartbeat He was in denial in his own backyard Pleading for the rain just to come down hard She bought him a bracelet and put it on his wrist Like every time before she got close but missed Romeo, Romeo I’m your Juliet I’m the pot of gold that you haven’t found yet I’m here, right here He said, «Juliet I believe every word you say Time is running backwards every single day I’m here, right here» Well it started out as nothing in the strangest place Beating like a drum in a hard luck space He swore that he could feel something tugging on his sleeve He had the strangest sense that he was Adam, she was Eve She was in chains by her own good hand Keeping all the angels under her command He saw every detail burning like sun Couldn’t get it straight that his race was run Romeo, Romeo tell me where you’ve been I would be complete if you would let me in I’m here, right here He said, «Juliet I told you I was only passing through If I had a moment I would spend it just with you I’m here, right here» And they all fall down And they all fall down And she said, «Romeo, Romeo I’m your Juliet I’m the pot of gold that you haven’t found yet I’m here, right here» He said, «Juliet I believe every word you say Time is running backwards every single day I’m here, right here» She said, «Romeo, Romeo tell me where you’ve been I would be complete if you would let me in I’m here, right here» And he said, «Juliet I told you I was only passing through If I had a moment I would spend it just with you I’m here, right here»
