Bryan Ferry – Do The Strand lyrics

There's a new sensation, a fabulous creation
A danceable solution to teenage revolution
Do the Strand love when you feel love
It's the new way and that's why we say
Do the Strand

Do it on the tables, Quaglino's place or Mabel's
Slow and gentle, sentimental
All styles served here, Louis Seize he prefer
Laissez-faire Le Strand

Tired of the tango, fed up with fandango
Dance on moonbeams and slide on rainbows
In furs or blue jeans, you know what I mean
Do the Strand

Had your fill of Quadrilles, the Madison and cheap thrills
Bored with the Beguine, the samba isn't your scene
They're playing our tune by the pale moon
We're incognito down the Lido
And we like the Strand

Arabs at oasis, Eskimos and Chinese
If you feel blue, look through Who's Who
See La Goulue and Nijinsky
Do the Strandski

Weary of the waltz
And mashed potato schmaltz
Rhododendron is a nice flower
Evergreen it lasts forever
But it can't beat Strand power

The Sphinx and Mona Lisa
Lolita and Guernica
Did the Strand
