​Beauty Queen

This song is by Roxy Music and appears on the album For Your Pleasure (1973) and on the box set The Thrill of It All (1995).

Valerie, please believe
It never could work out
The time to make plans
Has passed
Faded away

Ooh, the way you look
Makes my starry eyes shiver
Then I look away
Too much for one day

One thing we share
Is an ideal of beauty
Treasure so rare
That even devils might care

Your swimming pool eyes
In sea breezes they flutter
The coconut tears
Heavy-lidded they shed
Swaying palms at your feet
You're the pride of your street

While you worship the sun
Summer lover of fun
Gold number with neighbours
Who said that you'll go far
Maybe someday be a star
A fast-mover like you
And your dreams will all come true

All of my hope and my inspiration
I drew from you
Our life's pattern's drawn in sand
But the winds could not erase
The memory of your face

Deep in the night
Plying very strange cargo
Our soul ships pass by
Solo trips to the stars
In the sky

Gliding so far
That the eye cannot follow
Where do they go
We'll never know
