Constantinople Line Lyrics

by Simple Minds

Hey waiter, I'm first class
Hey waiter, where are we now?
Am I last? Am I last?
Hey waiter, don't talk back

These tenants speak
A traveler's language
Caucasian talk
They're saying nothing

Oh, I see a land
As we crawl by night
I see a face
In the window in front

These stations are useful
These stations, we love them
Newspaper, encounter
Confusion

Hey waiter, I'm first class
Hey waiter, what state is this?
These reptiles scream, a violent party
All art and jazz and League of Nations

Oh, I see a land
As we crawl by night
And I see a face
In the window in front

The east is calling
I'm feeling nervous
I love the western
Style and change

These stations are useful
These stations, we love them

These stations are useful
These stations, we love them
Newspaper, encounter
Confusion

Constantinople
Red, red star, red
Constantinople
Red, red star, red

Constantinople
Red, red star, red
Constantinople
Red, red star, red
