    "Bride On The Bridge" Lyrics

    Latin Quarter

    Down at the landing stage the sign reads 'Havoline'
    And you buy the diesel there, back in the old routine
    You pay up your harbour dues and then, from the anchorage
    All in her wedding lace
    You see a bride on the bridge

    Her coat on the balustrade she bought at a fire-sale
    She's been married to debt for years
    And now she's climbing the lone guard-rail
    Gulls are er Mendelssohn, she has a bouquet of foliage
    That no-one here is reaching for
    Slowly the bride on the bridge

    Those raising interest don't look up

    They have no interest in her flight
    Their spectrum has no bridal white
    They don't leave the scene
    Not when money talks
    The whisper-mill says "Buy Brazil"
    That is if you don't mind blood on the stalks

    Cargo comes rolling in, containers of even size
    There's no rafts or floats aboard - so what if lives
    Trading takes no account of strangers to privilege
    Not if they can't keep up their balances
    She's vanished, the bride on the bridge
