When she walked in the room
You could faint from the strong perfume
And she said her name was libertine
In my ear, a voice said don't be a fool stay clear,
Better stay away from libertine
Stay away from libertine
Stay away from libertine
Stay away from libertine

So I stayed out of view
But my eyes couldn't come unglued
I was hypnotized by libertine
So in time I broke down and I lost my mind
Then I made a move on libertine
Stay away from libertine
Made a move on libertine
Stay away from libertine
I made my move on libertine

And I waited all night
'til the timing was right
For another man was reaching for her hand
But he went to the phone
And when I got her alone
It just wasn't the same
Tell me what's in a name?

She made me drunk with her charms
Then she left on her husband's arm
And I got the shaft from libertine
I was weak and I know just from whence I speak,
Better stay away from libertine
Stay away from libertine
