Nancy Boy

Album: Placebo (1996)
Charted: 4
  • Alcoholic kind of mood
    Lose my clothes
    Lose my lube
    Cruising for a piece of fun
    Looking out for number one
    Different partner every night
    So narcotic outta sight
    What a gas
    what a beautiful ass

    And it all breaks down at the role reversal
    Got the muse in my head she's universal
    Spinnin' me round she's coming over me
    And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal
    Got the muse in my head she's universal
    Spinnin' me round she's coming over me

    Kind of buzz that lasts for days
    Had some help from insect ways
    Comes across all shy and coy
    Just another nancy boy
    Woman man or modern monkey
    Just another happy junkie
    Fifty pounds
    Press my button
    Going down

    And it all breaks down at the role reversal
    Got the muse in my head she's universal
    Spinnin' me round she's coming over me
    And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal
    Got the muse in my head she's universal
    Spinnin' me round she's coming over me

    does his makeup in his room
    Douse himself with cheap perfume
    Eyeholes in a paper bag
    Greatest lay I ever had
    Kind of guy who mates for life
    Gotta help him find a wife
    We're a couple
    When our bodies double

    And it all breaks down at the role reversal
    Got the muse in my head she's universal
    Spinnin' me round she's coming over me
    And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal
    Got the muse in my head she's universal
    Spinnin' me round she's coming over me

    And it all breaks down at the role reversal
    Got the muse in my head she's universal
    Spinnin' me round she's coming over me
    And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal
    Got the muse in my head she's universal
    Spinnin' me round she's coming over me Writer/s: BRIAN MOLKO, STEFAN OLSDAL, ROBERT SCHULTZBERG

  • Karl from Ingatestone, United KingdomI've seen this Placebo song get played in the background when Mark Lamarr is introducing Brian Molko on Nevermind The Buzzcocks, i love Placebo. Brian Molko surely knows all of the indecipherable lyrics of Rolling Stones, i have this Placebo song on Now 36 and still gets back many memories from Placebo
  • Brandon from Manchester, United KingdomIt's as if Brian is refering to himself here!!
