Say a word for the foreign legions
She was once the apple of their eye
Susie on high, no more than a memory as the years go passing by
Susie on high

She was once our lover, now we cry
"This is the morning of Susie High"
Will we find another butterfly?
This is the mourning of Susie High
This is the mourning of Susie High
This is the mourning of Susie High
Susie High"

Did you think she'd live forever? (Did you think the Gods would let her?)
Living lighter than a feather? (Ha, my little go-getter)
She was never very shy, Susie High
A walking imitation of the sky

Susie made up a big invention
Famous for the things that made her fly
Susie on high, mechanical mistress, wings a-light in darkest sky
Susie on high

A champion of aeronautic minds
This is the mourning of Susie High
Yet another sparrow left behind
This is the mourning of Susie High
This is the mourning of Susie High
This is the mourning of Susie High
Susie High

She tried to fly beyond the ocean (causing such a big commotion)
They played the tape in slower motion (so amazing, such devotion)
And then she fell into the Rhine, Susie High
A walking imitation of the sky

"Downwards you go when you follow the rainbow
Ambition's a bastard afoot at your table
The Queen of our hearts, hardly more than a fable
The Queen of all lies, Susie High"

"Ah, Susie, we believed in ya, we trusted ya
But you let us down
And now. we're crying our eyes out for ya1"

So every bird that ever chances (into our erotic glances)
Might be Susie back to Kansas (is she ours or is she Oz?)
And if you flap your wings you just might fly
Susie High, a walking imitation of the sky
