lyrics

I sent you letters by facsimile
It was cheaper
Paid for our luncheons with the petty cash
So much neater
I lie to the wife like she’s my client
Dazzle with promises
Let’s feign some work and then it’s play

All the times that we spent in Paris – Champs Elysees
All the grand imperial lines
Reflect my love for you
Confound my trust in you
We will last as long as the bubbles rising up inside our glasses of champagne

I am a master of the universe
These things I understand
I’ll sell you my love like a treasured brand
I’ll have your loyalty
Just leave your details with my secretary
What could be simpler?
We’ll leave our problems in hotels

All the times that we spent in Berlin - Potsdamer Platz
All the glass and the polished lines
Reflect my love for you
Confound my trust in you
We will last as long as the bubbles rising up inside our glasses of champagne

We sit above them in the royal box
How it suits us
The music bores us but the wine tastes nice.
You’ve never dressed finer
No one suspects us but word gets around
Don’t get them started
A minor issue I must solve
Devolve
Convenient resolve

All the times that we spent in New York – Madison Square
All the glass and the polished lines
Reflect my love for you
Confound my trust in you.
We will last as long as the bubbles rising up inside our glasses of champagne

Now the money has been spent,
The way that money’s always spent.
The end of the affair
The end of us
