"Sister Rosetta (Capture The Spirit)" as written by Shingai Elizabeth Maria Shoniwa, Daniel John Montagu Smith and James Ross Morrison....
She's a caged animal
London by night
Crashing lights and cymbals
Queens of twilight
And if I was you
I'd use the loo
Before the long drive
We compliment each other
Just like Satan and Christ

Baby when I am laid to rest
May my laughter remain
Like your kiss blew me away

Answer your spirit
I gotta know right now
I see you before me
Won't you show me how

I wear my hair fizzy
I don't copy no style
Cause kissin and a scrubbin
Has consequences
You're on the bus again
Past big ben
With your rip off oyster card
Tell your A.S.B.O. friend
To sling his hook and "go make your girl smile"

Cos baby when I am laid in earth
May my laughter remain
Like your kiss blew me away
Left your scent on my pillow
Sister Rosetta was playin
The congregation insane
Drinkin to the house with no name

You gotta capture the spirit, I gotta know right now I see you before me, won't you show me how I am the landlord, you'll be my troubadour Was it better before me? Won't you show me how, how?

You gotta capture the spirit, I gotta know right now I see you before me, wont you show me how Cause I am the landlord, and you'll be my troubadour Better before me? You just don't know how

Capture the spirit, and let it all hang out I see you before me, darlin show me now I am the landlord, You'll be my troubadour Oh oh oh oh oh, wont you show me how, how?

    General Commentjust a nitpick:

    its "complement" not "compliment" They've got different meanings but similar spellings. Christ complimenting Satan would be interesting, though.
