for Mayakovsky


Champagne and caviar
You can't remember who you are
Long nights in winter time
White nights in summer time

Vodka and cigarettes
I don't think you like me ... yet
Your nose so aquiline
Those glances saturnine

(So did you have to do it?
Did you have to say goodbye?)


I've had a ball
What a shame to end it all

Why did you tango into me?
Was it just to end your ennui?
Words like bullets gone astray
Down at the Stray Dog Cabaret

A person on their own
No altruism shown
Let's wait another year
And see who turns up here

(Will anyone turn up?
Or was it just one of those things...?)


We're frozen in the snow
Where did our silence go?
Old pictures solarise
Opinions polarise

We dance while buildings fall
Try to forget it all
Those wars will end one day
To die we're not afraid


We don't have to end it all...

(Jazz guitar solo)
