"Babylon" as written by Thomas D. Funderburk, Lawrence Lowell Williams and Grace Wing Slick....
Forever, you'll be remembered as the one who played it cool
Whenever they speak your name they'll say it's you who broke the golden rule
But here's what I really want to know
Did you see the writing on the wall

Babylon
How long can this foolish magic carry on
Babylon
Who will love you when the fantasy of youth is gone

Babylon is it true that your streets were paved with gold
And did you play beneath the stars
Babylon did you know it would all come down to
How you played the dealer's cards

Remember how you loved the laughter
A kingdom on the rise
Crys in the night would turn you to song
And when they call ooh you sang along

Here's what I really want to know
Did you see the writing on the wall

Babylon
How long will this foolish magic carry on
Babylon
Who will love you when the fantasy of youth is gone

Babylon is it true that your streets were paved with gold
And did you play beneath the stars
Babylon did you know it would all come down to
How you played the dealer's cards

It's over you rate two pages in some book
Your legacy
Lost in the night and still you sing your song
For those who will take heed

Here's what I really want to know
Did you see the writing on the wall

Babylon
How long will this foolish magic carry on
Babylon
Who will love you when the fantasy of youth is gone

Babylon is it true that your streets were paved with gold
And did you play beneath the stars
Babylon did you know it would all come down to
How you played the dealer's cards
