"Libertine" as written by Todd Rundgren, Roger Powell and John Wilcox....
When she walked in the room
You could faint from the strong perfume
And she said her name was Libertine
In my ear, a voice said don't be a fool stay clear
Better stay away from Libertine
Stay away from Libertine
Stay away from Libertine
Stay away from Libertine
So I stayed out of view
But my eyes couldn't come unglued
I was hypnotized by Libertine
So in time I broke down and I lost my mind
Then I made a move on Libertine
Stay away from Libertine
Made a move on Libertine
Stay away from Libertine
I made my move on Libertine
And I waited all night
'Til the timing was right
For another man was reaching for her hand
But he went to the phone
And when I got her alone
It just wasn't the same
Tell me what's in a name?
She made me drunk with her charms
Then she left on her husband's arm
And I got the shaft from Libertine
I was weak and I know just from whence I speak
Better stay away from Libertine
Stay away from Libertine
