Couldn't it be black velvet tiger painting on the wall?
Couldn't it be neon lighting?
Neon lighting.
Oh, the red light bulb.
Oh, the red light bulb!

You have no friends here.
You've never been here.
Oh, no.
Oh, the red light bulb.
And the shadows
One thousand shadows lick the wall.

Couldn't it be a beaded curtain?
A coltish limb seen.
Black velvet joy.

Couldn't it be he's someone's daughter?
He shakes and totters.
You're a naughty boy.

Oh, the red light bulb.
This place is haunted.
One thousand bodies here before.

Oh, the red light bulb.
And the shadows
One thousand shadows lick the wall.

Couldn't it be black velvet?
Jesus painting.
Gold halo.

Couldn't it be the maroon carpet tastes of copper?
Oh, the red light bulb.
