Roxy Music – Bitters End lyrics


At last the crimson chord cascade
To shower dry cordials within
Too late to leap the chocolate gate
Pale fountains fizzing forth pink gin
While destiny begins to fly
The farmyard chorus sings it's wake
Upstanding anthem to the sky
Too soon to realise their fate
You were the raven of october
I knew the sign you flew around
Up in the air so high above me
Never needed to look down
I never thought iґd be a rover
I didnґt even look around
But now I know youґve found another
So will someone please find me
Give now the host his claret cup
And watch madeira's farewell drink
Note his reaction acid sharp
Should make the cognoscenti think
