Memories

Memories lyrics

frankie laine was singing “jezebel.”
i pinned an iron cross to my lapel.
i walked up to the tallest and the blondest girl.
i said, “look, you don’t know me now but very soon you will;
so won’t you let me see,
won’t you let me see,
won’t you let me see
your naked body?”
she sayd, “just dance me to the dark side of the gym.
chances are, i’ll let you do almost anything.
i know you’re hungry, i can hear it in your voice,
and there are many parts of me to touch. you have your choice.
but no, you cannot see,
no, you cannot see,
no, you cannot see
my naked body.”

we’re dancing close, the band is playing “stardust.”
balloons and paper streamers floating down on us.
she says, “you`ve got a minute left to fall in love.”
in solemn moments such as this i`ve put my trust,
and all my faith to see,
all my faith to see,
all my faith to see
her naked body.
