Men reading fashion magazines
Oh what a world
It seems we live in
Straight man
Oh what a world
We live in

Why am I always on a plane or a fast train
Oh what a world my parents gave me
Always
Travelin' but not in love

Still I think I'm doin' fine
Wouldn't it be a lovely headline
Life is
Beautiful on a New York Times

Why am I always on a plane or a fast train
Oh what a world my parents gave me

Still I think I'm doin' fine
Wouldn't it be a lovely headline
Life is
Beautiful
