The Mincer Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Health food fagot with a bartered bride
Likes to comb his hair with a dipper ride
Once had a friend with a cloven foot
Once he called the tune in a chequered quit

Great deceiver

In the door on the floor in a paper bag
There's a shoe shine boy with a gin shop slag
She raised him up and she called him son
And she canonized the ground that he walked upon

Great deceiver

Cigarettes, ice cream, figurines of the Virgin Mary
Cigarettes, ice cream, figurines of the Virgin Mary
Cigarettes, ice cream, Cadillacs blue jeans

In the night he's a star in the Milky Way
He's a man of the world by the light of day
A golden smile and a proposition
And the breath of God smells of sweet sedition

Great deceiver

Sing hymns make love get high fall dead
He'll bring his perfume to your bed
He'll charm your life 'til the cold winds blow
Then he'll sell your dreams to a picture show

Cigarettes, ice cream, figurines of the Virgin Mary
Cigarettes, ice cream, figurines of the Virgin Mary
Cadillacs, blue jeans, dixieland playing on the ferry
Cadillacs, blues jeans, drop a glass full of antique sherry

Songwriters
CROSS, DAVID FRANCIS / PALMER JAMES, RICHARD WILLIAM / FRIPP, ROBERT / BRUFORD, WILLIAM SCOTT / WETTON, JOHN KENNETH
