  • Well I'm here looking through an old picture frame
    Just waiting for the perfect view
    I hope something special will step in to my life
    Another fine edition of you
    A pin-up done in shades of blue
    Sometimes you find a yearning for the quiet life
    The country air and all its joys
    But badgers couldn't compensate at twice the price

    For just another night with the boys oh yeah
    And boys will be boys, will be boys
    They say love's a gamble, hard to win, easy lose
    And while sun shines you'd better make hay
    So if life is your table and fate is the wheel
    Then let the chips fall where they may
    In modern times the modern way

    And as I was drifting past the Lorelei
    I heard those slinky sirens wail, whooo
    So look out sailor when you hear them croon
    You'll never been the same again oh no
    Their crazy music drives you insane, this way
    So love, leave me. do what you will
    Who knows what tomorrow might bring'
    Learn from your mistakes is my only advice

    And stay cool is still the main rule
    Don't play yourself for a fool
    Too much cheesecake too soon
    Old money's better than new
    No mention in the latest Tribune
    And don't let this happen to you Writer/s: BRYAN FERRY
