"Casanova's Got the Blues" as written by and Richard Clapton....
Madame's on the corner, wearing her cheap disguise
And everybody's sneakin' round her, trying to hide their eyes
She looks like a fool from a masquerade
She'll tell you she's just out to have fun
But she looks more to me like a prisoner
Afraid and on the run

Casanova's got the blues
My heart feels just like stone
And I'm talking back to my radio
And dancing on my own

Now there goes Franz Josef of Austria, into the Grand Hotel
And he don't care how much he has to spend
He'll buy anything she can sell
When she packs up her body and fantasies
She'll laugh when he's outside the door
And scream, "Honey, how come a sucker like you
Keeps on running back for more?"

Casanova's got the blues
My heart feels just like stone
And I'm talking back to my radio
And dancing on my own

I keep trying to escape these pirates
Who wreck anything they can't steal
They smash your ideals with violence
And grab the best end of the deal
You won't catch me near your window, babe
Putting myself on display
So don't you come ask me for anything
'Cause I've found out that love doesn't pay

Casanova's got the blues
My heart feels just like stone
And I'm talking back to my radio
And dancing on my own
