Roxy Music, “Virginia Plain”

This sure is some fine music. I think this album came out in 1972. Glam rock all the way, baby!

Make me a deal and make it straight
All signed and sealed, I’ll take it
To Robert E. Lee I’ll show it
I hope and pray he don’t blow it,
‘Cos We’ve been around a long time
Just trying to make the big time

Take me on a rollercoaster
Take me for an airplane ride
Take me for a six day wonder
But don’t you throw my pride aside
Besides, what’s real and make believe?
Baby Jane’s in Acapulco
We’re all flying down to Rio

Throw me a line I’m sinking fast
Clutching at straws, can’t make it
Havana sound we’re trying
Hard edge the hipster jiving
Last picture shows down the drive-in
You’re so sheer, you’re so chic
Teenage rebel of the week
