"City of Shame" as written by and Robyn Hitchcock....
It was in the city of shame
That I found I wasn't to blame
I was looking for a weird thing or two
I discovered that it had to be you

It was in the city of fear
That I shouted "Is there nobody here?"
Though the echo had the name on a ring
Still the echo wasn't called anything
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

It was in the city of love
All the flesh I ate was never enough
Though I knew it wasn't good for my soul
My body hungered for the ultimate goal

It was in the city of spies
That I spoke with nothing but lies
When they set a trap for all you could feel
It's important that your mind is concealed
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

It was in the city of shapes
That she made love to several apes
She felt weird for a couple of days
Pretty soon she got used to their ways

It was in the city of fools
That she sold her beautiful jewels
Someone bought them and sold them again
Now they've been bought by several men
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
