MOTHER OF PEARL (Brian Ferry) Roxy Music - 1973 Turn the lights down Way down low Turn up the music Hi as fi can go All the gangīs here Everyone you know Itīs a crazy scene Hey there just look over your shoulder Get the picture? No no no no .......(Yes) Walk a tightrope Your life-sign-line Such a bright hope Right place, right time Whatīs your number? Never you mind Take a powder But hang on a minute whatīs coming round the corner? Have you a future? No no no no .......(Yes) Well Iīve been up all night again Party-time wasting is too much fun Then I step back thinking Of lifeīs inner meaning And my latest fling Itīs the same old story All love and glory Itīs a pantomime If you're looking for love In a looking glass world It's pretty hard to find Oh mother of pearl I wouldn't trade you For another girl Divine intervention Always my intention So I take my time Iīve been looking for something I've always wanted But was never mine But now I've seen that something Just out of reach - glowing - Very Holy grail Oh mother of pearl Lustrous lady Of a sacred world Thus: even Zarathustra Another-time-loser Could believe in you With every goddess a let down Every idol a bring down It gets you down But the search for perfection Your own predilection Goes on and on and on and on Canadian Club love A place in the Country Everyone's ideal But you are my favorita And a place in your heart dear Makes me feel more real Oh mother of pearl I wouldn't change you For the whole world You're highbrow, holy With lots of soul Melancholy shimmering Serpentine sleekness Was always my weakness Like a simple tune But no dilettante Filigree fancy Beats the plastic you Career girl cover Exposed and another Slips right into-view Oh looking for love In a looking glass world Is pretty hard for you Few throwaway kisses The boomerang misses Spin round and round Fall on featherbed quilted Faced with silk Softly stuffed eider down Take refuge in pleasure Just give me your future We'll forget your past Oh mother of pearl Submarine lover In a shrinking world Oh lonely dreamer Your choker provokes A picture cameo Oh mother of pearl So so semi-precious In your detached world Oh mother of pearl I wouldnīt trade you For another girl
