Godley & Creme - An Englishman in New York 1980

Demented New York athletes staggering round the block
Deforned Chicanos pour in, Chicago's rolling stock
Digital bathrooms drilling for furs
Surgical stockings marked his and hers
Guggenheim attitudes back to back
With Jewish Baroque

No way street
No way street
No way street
Happy to see you,
have a nice day!

Defecting Russian dancers dance into Hockney prints
Exclusive to Bloomingdales, gift-wrapped in red
From the land of blue rinse
They boggle at menus in Olde English verse
and quot to a burger by Keats at his worst
The hissing of omelets the breaking of legs
Don't shoot till you see the whites of their eggs
The pink fillet mignon looks black on the negs

Strange apparatus
You've never seen
Strange apparatus,
even stranger theme
Street alligators
Big Anglophile
Will navigate us
through a change of style

I came, I saw, what manner of beast is this
New York, you talk a little bit left of center
A scream, a shout
New York is throwing its weight about

Walk tall, walk straight,
spit the world right in the eye
The stranger the wood
the straighter the arrow

Devoted collectors of paraphernalia
out walking the rock
Battle and bitch
for the ultimate kitsch
of a crucifix clock
Two miniature Romans, running on rails
Appear every hour and bang in the nails
I've got to have it, Christ,
I gotta be the first
on our block

No way street
No way street
No way street
Happy to see you,
have a nice day!

Strange apparatus
You've never seen
Strange apparatus,
even stranger theme
Street alligators
Big Anglophile
Will navigate us
through a change of style
Strange apparatus
