Dark Sunglasses

Album: Stockholm (2014)
  • Baby get your groove back, another kind of life,
    One you think that you deserve.
    Nothing you should lack, now reverting back the time,
    Never mind you lost your nerve.
    Yeah you had a go at sleeping in the van
    But you couldn't let it go too far.
    Now you got a pension plan
    And your name's on the insurance
    And you can drive another woman's car.

    A kind of glamour
    You can lend yourself
    Like dark sunglasses
    And you'll remember
    How good it tasted
    Inside the ruling classes
    Wasted, behind your dark sunglasses

    She's got a ball gown for charities and such,
    Like a debutante from days gone by.
    Shavin', wearin' a tie, isn't sacrificing much,
    You lucky guy, you can still get high.
    But, yes sir, no sir, someday we'll be there,
    You only have to please that lady.
    Think anything you like, but be careful what you say,
    For another warm night, another dry day.

    A kind of glamour
    You can lend yourself
    Like dark sunglasses
    And you'll remember
    How good it tasted
    The ruling classes wasted
    Behind your dark sunglasses

    I'm not towing the line
    You'll be fine
    I'm not towing the line

    A kind of glamour
    You can lend yourself
    Like dark sunglasses
    And you'll remember
    How good it tasted
    The ruling classes

    A kind of glamour
    You can lend yourself
    Like dark sunglasses
    And you'll remember
    How good it tasted
    Inside the ruling classes
    Wasted, behind your dark sunglasses
    Wasted, behind your dark sunglasses Writer/s: BJORN YTTLING, CHRISTINE HYNDE
