Stan Ridgway – Uba's House Of Fashions lyrics

The door swung wide, I walked right in
I was a long way off from where I'd been
From behind a desk, inside a cool green cloud
A strange low voice told me then to join the crowd

Chorus:
At uba's
Uba's
Uba's
Fashions
Fashions



Uba said to jumbo "won't you take my childЁcЁc
I have a walked a million miles
Changin' my clothes, changin' what I wear
Used to worry about things, now I just don't care"


Chorus repeat


A long line formed at the door to the back
Everybody wanted a dress off the rack
They wanted somethin' from her that made her shake
She screamed "everybody gotta pay for what they take"


Chorus repeat


I'm leavin' town now, and changin' my name
I'm never going to be the same
Jumbo had a baby, lives on blueberry hill
And everybody got a mama, 'cause she's hangin' out there still


Chorus repeat x2


Uba's house of fashions (x12)
Snoihsaf ,s'abu s'abu ,s'abu ta
Llits ereht tuo 'nignah s'ehs esuac'
