Marc Almond - 
Vaudeville And Burlesque
=====================================

I've had my fill of ugly words 
I've had my fill of lies 
When the only truth or beauty now 
Is deep within your thighs 
The roses are in bloom my dear 
I haven't any fear 
That you'll love me 
Like you did last year 

Look at me 
Do you see 
A man against the world 
But don't look at me 
And see an unhappy man 
With some powder and some paint 
And the patience of a saint 
I'm still here 

My life's not over yet 
I'm not up there on the shelf 
I've found someone to love 
Apart from just myself 

I've had my fill of bitterness 
I've had my fill of dirt 
I've had enough of emptiness 
I've had enough of hurt 
I think we'll get the last laugh 
If we don't break down and cry 

And find the joke's 
On you and I 
Look at us 
Do you see us in a burlesque show 
Look at us are we in vaudeville 
We've tasted every thrill 
Every powder every pill 
And we're still here 

I've had enough of broken cups 
I've had enough of scenes 
Of other people's laughter 
When we go through our routines 
The lilies aren't in season 
So I've no reason to fear 
That you'll love me like you 
Did last year 
That you'll love me like you 
Did last year 
That you'll love me like you 
Did last year
