"Bright Lights Black Leather" as written by and Adam Ant....
There they go the buccaneers
Hand and hand in leather glove
So fast so crazy
With a creepy kind of love
Bright lights, black leather
Bright lights, black leather
Some towns make me anxious
Others sane but sad
But West Berlin's by far the strangest time
I ever had
All night town of punks and art
All saying look at me

Never seen so much black leather
Even on car hoods
Surrounded by East Germany
So
They want to know just who you are
Or how they can amuse you
Squatters freaks Mahicans
Or even a wall of voodoo
If I had to sum it up
Without sounding too clever
I'd have to say my life has been
A case of bright lights
Black leather

    General CommentBest song on Manners & physique. Harks back to his first visit to Berlin in my opinion, with the original band. He said in interviews that it was the craziest place at the time. Bright lights & black leather typical of the Antz in the punk days.
