She Sells

This song is by Roxy Music and appears on the album Siren (1975).

Now you're talking in headlines
Up to the minute and free
Stop press, hold the front page
Up as your mirror
Are you reading me?
Watch you walking in waltz time
A jigsaw puzzle in tune
Or are you faking a straight line
To suit yourself too soon
Rather nouveau than never
Contemporary ideal
Some natural kind of poet might slow it
But she sells more my speed

She sells country and modern
Ancient western song
Of oriental confusion
You so right, me so wrong
Now you're fixing to fly me-
Auto-erotic, please,
Off the brake that you're gliding.
Your lingerie's a gift-wrap
Slip it to me

Nine till five
The daily grind
Made-up lies
Make up my mind
Same machine consuming me
Consuming you
Oh why
She sells
I need
Oh why love why
She sells
I need.
