"Baroque Bordello" as written by Hugh Alan Cornwell, David Greenfield, Brian John Duffy and Jean Jacques Burnel....
See a picturesque decay there
Something for time to tell
See the woman of your dreams there
In a baroque bordello

Swing doors and a blind venetian
Keep her in a walnut shell
Has to rub your eyes to bathe you
In a baroque bordello

All the words are written for you
Finds you heaven, finds you hell
Finds your love, but keeps it hidden
In a baroque bordello

Seven days and seven nights spent
Sleeping in a wishing well
Climb her rope and find her trailer
In a baroque bordello

In a baroque bordello
In a baroque bordello
