Duran Duran – Notorious lyrics
[Intro]
No-no-Notorious
Notorious
(Ah)
No-no-Notorious

[Verse 1]
I can't read about it
Burns the skin from your eyes
I'll do fine without it
Here's one you don't compromise
Lies come hard in disguise
They need to fight it out
Not wild about it
Lay your seedy judgements
Who says they're part of our lives?

[Chorus]
You own the money
You control the witness
I'll leave you lonely
Don't monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise, but I don't believe it
That's why I've done it again

[Refrain]
No-No-Notorious

[Verse 2]
Girls will keep the secrets (uh)
So long as boys make a noise
Fools run rings to break up
Something they'll never destroy
Grand Notorious slam (bam)
And who really gives a damn for a flaky bandit?
Don't ask me to bleed about it
I need this blood to survive

[Chorus]
You own the money
You control the witness
I'll leave you lonely
Don't monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise, but I don't believe it
That's why I've done it again

[Instrumental Bridge & Refrain]
Notorious
Notorious

[Chorus]
You own the money
You control the witness
I'll leave you lonely
Don't monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise, but I don't believe it

You own the money
You control the witness
I'll leave you lonely
Don't monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise, but I don't believe it
That's why I've done it again

[Outro]
No
No
That's why I've done it again
No-Notorious
Yeah, that's why I've done it again
No-no-Notorious
Yeah, that's why I've done it again
No-Notorious
No-no-Notorious
Yeah, that's why I've done it again
No-Notorious
No-no-Notorious!
