Bryan Ferry – San Simeon lyrics

Walk up the driveway endlessly curving
Go through the front door, it's so inviting
Baronial great hall once so exciting
Haunted by shadows faces in hiding
Chair by the fire, I feel a tremor
Silent reminder you used to be there
You are the princess, my wand doth wake you
Fantasy playmate candlelight lover
Teasing in French lace, exotic promise
So undemanding, yet understanding
Each wall a picture some of his best work
Delicate touches, they're simply charming
Coffee table culture full color pages
Props archetypal floral arrangement
Stereogram cabinet, walnut veneer
True reproduction no one can hear
Tiger skin rug love I stroke you bite me
Executive leather upholstered tightly
Bar in the next room, cocktails at seven
Soft lights, sweet music lounge through eleven
Let's walk in the garden, French windows open
Patio paving concrete and crazy
Roses in blossom, they're doing well this year
Geranium pattern shrub topiary
Lie on your lush lawns, waterfall bubbles
Drink at my fountain, forget all your troubles.
