"Beauty Queen" as written by and Bryan Ferry....
Valerie please believe
It never could work out
The time to make plans
Has passed, faded away
Oh 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

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's 'Deep in the night, flying very strange cargo...', no?
