I'm gonna change my name
And shed my ball and chain
These amber waves of grain

I long for dazzling grime
Dark streets of fame and crime
I've got a light to shine

The silver train is gonna take me away
We’ll drink champagne to the cabaret
Heads all turn to hear what we say

Don’t you wanna be like
The boys in the spotlight
Ladies in the window
Like Marilyn Monroe

Pay rent with sex and dreams
Shoplift some magazines
No rules for sweet 18

We got no guarantee
Live off the bourgeoise
Gaze at the marquis

The silver train is gonna take us away
We’ll drink champagne to the cabaret
Heads all turn to hear what we say

Don’t you wanna be like
The boys in the spotlight
Ladies in the window
Like Marilyn Monroe

Don’t you wanna be like
The boys in the spotlight
Ladies in the window
Like Marilyn Monroe

The silver train is gonna take us away
We’ll drink champagne to the cabaret
Heads all turn to hear what we say

Don’t you wanna be like
The boys in the spotlight
Ladies in the window
Like Marilyn Monroe

Don’t you wanna be like
The boys in the spotlight
Ladies in the window
Like Marilyn Monroe
