Testo She Sells – Roxy Music

Testo della canzone She Sells dei Roxy Music
Album: Siren
Now you’re talking in headlines
Up to the minute and free
Stop press – hold the front page
Up as your mirror
Are you reading me?

I watch you walking in waltz time
A jig-saw puzzle in tune
Or are you fakin’ a straight line
To suit yourself too soon?

Rather nouveau than never
Contemporary ideal
Some natural kind of poet might slow it
But she sells more my speed

She sells country and modern
Ancient western song
Of oriental confusion
You so right, me so wrong

Now you’re fixin’ to fly me
Auto-erotic pleas
Off the record you’re glidin’
Your lingerie’s a ‘gift-wrap’ – ‘Slip it to me’

Nine till five
The daily grind
Made-up eyes make up my mind
Same machine
consuming me, consuming you

Know why
She sells?
I need
Oh I see why
She sells –
I need.
