Adelaide
The stars within your eyes
Like marmalade beneath a summer sky

Your fare is paid
From Monticello, Maine
Adelaide, they sing the same refrain, refrain, refrain

"Spread your wings and sail the seven seas
The future is blest
For those who sell their souls and all the rest"

Adelaide
In January's wake
New Years Day, an innocent mistake

As they say
With thumbs in purple pies
Adelaide, they spin the spun reprise, reprise, reprise

"Spread your wings and sail the seven seas
The future is blest
For the those who sell their souls and all the rest
Migrate west, young child
Queen of the Nile
The future is blest
For those who sell their souls and all the rest"

Adelaide
Stars fade away
And your skin to grey
Red-lipped ruse
You amuse
With your listless smile and your leopard style

Adelaide
If all the world’s a stage
Adelaide
How long will you remain?
Adelaide
The same from age to age
Adelaide
A shade away from sane, insane, insane

Tell me
How does it feel?
Dusk drawing near
Upon your career
The sadness in your eyes
Summer days gone by
A luckless dreamer's pass
The luster never lasts
There's one thing left to do
My red-lipped ruse
To kiss the hands of fools
