I thought it was like a film
Reviewed but never seen
Where everybody played themselves
As a drama king or queen

The music was overwhelming
Glittering and thin
Solemn and shabby like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

I visualize the flashbacks
School, punk rock, success
Parties, too much of everything
The cliches, the candles, the mess

Lucian in the scene with David
Brian in a tux
McCartney on a blitz in Zanzibar
All Hollywood rRedux
Ossie's last collection
Biva's closing sale
A little more rouge on powdered cheeks
But the base is pale

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and soaring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

In ended with a motorbike
A search for evidence
Pouring over old photographs
To make it all fake sense
Glamorous in it's own way
Shouting above the din
Solemn are shabby like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

Johnny's wearing brothel creepers
Malcolm's round the block
Adam's in a Jarman film
But look he's let it rock
The Johnson's leather jacket
Hair by Keith at Smile
All you need to make it big is sex and style

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and souring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and souring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

Requiem in denim and leopardskin

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and souring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and souring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin
