Oh you sweet thing
Sirens sing your name
Sailors say that I’m to blame
Broken on the waves, O save me
Dance your fingertips
On this sinking ship
Dare the deep black sea
With motets and litanies and casting off precious things,
A lesson

Devil knows how to row
Lash me to the mast, Madame Pompadour
Madame Pompadour
Sirens sing my name,
Nobody else to blame
Lash me to the mast
Madame Pompadour
Madame Pompadour
Sirens sing your name
There’s nobody else to blame

Oh you sexy beast
From the distant east
I’ve played all your games
But no word’s safe enough to save me from perdition’s flames
Bluebird, hear my prayer
Save me from despair
Bind me to her heart
Scylla and Charybdis won’t never keep us apart
A lesson

Swingin’ low, here we go
Lash me to the mast, Madame Pompadour
Madame Pompadour
Sirens sing my name,
Nobody else to blame
Lash me to the mast
Madame Pompadour
Madame Pompadour
Sirens sing your name
And everybody knows that

Ghostly rain and hurricanes and
Stormy seas may roll
But I’m the Captain of my Fate
And Master of my Soul
Seven Spanish ships set sail
Down to the water in a long black veil
But you, my dear Reinette Poisson
Kept me strong enough to get back home

Lash me to the mast, Madame Pompadour
Madame Pompadour
Sirens sing my name,
Nobody else to blame
Lash me to the mast
Madame Pompadour
Madame Pompadour
Sirens sing your name
And then somebody sang

My cherie Rose,
Je t’aime, j’adore
Madame Pompadour
Sirènes chantent votre nom
Je ne serai jamais le même

My cherie Rose,
Je t’aime, j’adore
Madame Pompadour
Sirènes chantent votre nom
Je ne serai jamais le même
