A courier in Calais
A stolen attaché
With sealed assignments sewn inside
A double-cross in Nantes
A mousetrap in Milan
The general's taster's double lied

I'm lethal and maligned
Distinguished and refined
I'm being reassigned to Rome
There's a camera in the flowers
I have superhuman powers
In a drawer somewhere at home

You're going to let me fall right through your hands
You don't even know who I am
I'm no ordinary man
I'm no ordinary man
I'm no ordinary man
I'm no ordinary man

If danger is a crime
I've done a little time
Stealing secrets overseas
They call me "le mirage"
The maitre 'd's corsage
Contains the microfilm I need

Just try to play along
Pretend like nothing's wrong
And hang on every word I say
I'll stare you in the eyes
And whisper little lies
Till the waiter looks away


I'll sigh and coo and lie to you
The closer I appear, the further I am away

A cell in Belarus
A Cypriot chanteuse
With serum sewn inside her sleeve
A stranger on a train
A getaway in Spain
My car's a plane's a submarine

If I should disappear
Deny that I was here
I know a safe house in Bastogne
Meet me in the shower
I have superhuman powers
I can't reveal till we're alone
