DO THE STRAND (Brian Ferry) Roxy Music There's a new sensation a fabulous creation A danceable solution to teenage revolution Do the strand love when you feel love It's the new way and that's why we say Do the strand Do it on the tables Quaglino's place or Mabel's Slow and gentle sentimental All styles served here Louis Seize he prefer Laissez faire strand Tired of the tango fed up with fandango Dance on moonbeams slide on rainbows In furs or blue jeans you know what I mean Do the strand Had your fill of quadrilles the madison and cheap thrills Bored with the beguine the samba isn't your scene They're playing our tune by the pale moon We're incognito down the Lido And we like the strand Arabs at oases Eskimos and Chinese If you feel blue look through who's who See la goulue and Nijinsky Do the strandsky Weary of the waltz and mashed potato schmaltz Rhododendron is a nice flower Evergreen it last forever But it can't beat strand power The Sphynx and Mona Lisa Lolita and Guernica (Contributed by Andy & Mogg - November 2002)
