There's a filthy scum's nest
I'll lend you my bulletproof vest
So they can never shoot your fairytale
They can't crash, boom, bang your fairytale

Speak out loud
Don't let your world bow
To a monkey or a millionare
Kiss the ground

The Big Ben's tower is not that high
Go steal that bell Moriarty style
Now you can marry Queen Victoria
Go on your honeymoon in India

Make a scene
Baby button up your Schiaparelli shirt
One more drink gives us one more chance
To open up our hearts

Soldiers like you fight
Just because we can't hide
We try to hard to get it right
We lose our love

Still it feels like music, running through our veins now
Our hearts beating like bass drums
And we need more

She's got the sound, yeah the sound of a fairytale
She's got the moves of a jaguar
And when we get high, we don't need no other

She ran from hell to the hills with her dromedar
She fed her bills to an ungulate
And then she cried: "We don't need no water"

Go take your diamonds to EIC
Dive off that cliff swim across the sea
You can sail to Calais any given day
Go save Jean D'Arc from the burning flames

And it feels nice
Baby i just wanna get things right
Maybe one more drink gives us one more chance
To open up our hearts

It feels like music, running through our veins now
Our hearts beating like bass drums
And we need more

She's got the sound, yeah the sound of a fairytale
She's got the moves of a jaguar
And when we get high, we don't need no other

She ran from hell to the hills with her dromedar
She fed her bills to an ungulate
And then she cried: "We don't need no water"

And she said: "Hail to the, hail to the holidays"
She said: "Hail to the summer love"
And then she cried, but we don't need to wonder

And I said: "Hail to the, hail to the modern days"
I said: "Hail to the city I love"
And in our dreams we don't need to wonder
We don't need to wonder
