Turn the lights down Way down low Turn up the music Hi as fi can go All the gang's here Everyone you know It's a crazy scene Hey there just look over your shoulder Get the picture?
No no no no (Yes) Walk a tightrope Your life-sign-line Such a bright hope Right place, right time What's your number? Never you mind Take a powder But hang on a minute what's coming round the corner? Have you a future?
No no no no (Yes) Well I've been up all night again Party-time wasting is too much fun Then I step back thinking Of life's inner meaning And my latest fling It's the same old story All love and glory It's a pantomime
If you're looking for love In a looking glass world It's pretty hard to find Oh mother of pearl I wouldn't trade you For another girl Divine intervention Always my intention So I take my time
I've been looking for something I've always wanted But was never mine But now I've seen that something Just out of reach, glowing Very Holy grail Oh mother of pearl Lustrous lady Of a sacred world
Thus: even Zarathustra Another-time-loser Could believe in you With every goddess a let down Every idol a bring down It gets you down But the search for perfection Your own predilection Goes on and on and on and on Canadian Club love A place in the Country Everyone's ideal
But you are my favorita And a place in your heart dear Makes me feel more real Oh mother of pearl I wouldn't change you For the whole world You're highbrow, holy With lots of soul
Melancholy shimmering Serpentine sleekness Was always my weakness Like a simple tune But no dilettante Filigree fancy
Beats the plastic you Career girl cover Exposed and another Slips right into-view Oh looking for love In a looking glass world Is pretty hard for you Few throwaway kisses The boomerang misses Spin round and round Fall on featherbed quilted Faced with silk
Softly stuffed eider down Take refuge in pleasure Just give me your future We'll forget your past Oh mother of pearl Submarine lover
In a shrinking world Oh lonely dreamer Your choker provokes A picture cameo Oh mother of pearl So so semi-precious In your detached world Oh mother of pearl I wouldn't trade you For another girl
