"Editions Of You" as written by and Bryan Ferry....
Well I'm here looking through an old picture frame
Just waiting for the perfect view
I hope something special will step in to my life
Another fine edition of you
A pin-up done in shades of blue
Sometimes you find a yearning for the quiet life
The country air and all its joys
But badgers couldn't compensate at twice the price

For just another night with the boys oh yeah
And boys will be boys, will be boys
They say love's a gamble, hard to win, easy lose
And while sun shines you'd better make hay
So if life is your table and fate is the wheel
Then let the chips fall where they may
In modern times the modern way

And as I was drifting past the Lorelei
I heard those slinky sirens wail, whooo
So look out sailor when you hear them croon
You'll never been the same again oh no
Their crazy music drives you insane, this way
So love, leave me. do what you will
Who knows what tomorrow might bring'
Learn from your mistakes is my only advice

And stay cool is still the main rule
Don't play yourself for a fool
Too much cheesecake too soon
Old money's better than new
No mention in the latest Tribune
And don't let this happen to you

    General CommentToo much cheesecake too soon !

    Love it. Just love it. Will always love it.
    Once had a spontaneous epiphany of pure euphoria listening to this song while perusing a 1950's National Geographic... No intoxicants involved - it was purely due to this rocking song.

    [Their crazy music drives you insane - this way...]

    Check out this live version - greatest band ever. .
    Total precision - pure controlled chaos. Bryan F. looks like the anti-John Travolta.I love Roxy M.

    Link(s)They used to let us embed videos here but since the attempt above failed here is another way to see the AMAZING live version of this song from the 70's:

    Brian Eno is looking a bit freaky...
