THE PERC MEETS THE HIDDEN GENTLEMAN


SONGS VON A BIS Z


 

RESPECT & DEVOTION Part One

You swallow me blind
Your legs turn jeopard
And my skin turns leopard
Yeah you swallow me blind
Blind on both eyes
And I still can see you
I still can see you with my fingers
You're playing twelve different versions
And the company honchos
They do not catch the ideas
They will not ever catch the ideas
Imagine a coloured painting
Oil on canvas
On a bible black background
Entitled
With respect & devotion
Respect & devotion
All across the ocean
What does it mean
Let's sit down on the sofa in the kitchen
And let's sing one of those very old songs
Coming from the wasted highlands
Into the what we call civilised
West world strip poker party capitals
Let's sing this song
In the kitchen sitting on the sofa
I've got nothing
Nothing that I need
I walk alone the dusty road
With a donut in my hand
And with respect & devotion
All across the ocean
And I still can see you with my fingers
