    "Chelsea Monday" Lyrics


    Catalogue princess, apprentice seductress
    Hiding in her cellophane world in glitter town
    Awaiting the prince in his white Capri
    Dynamic young Tarzan courts the bedsit queen
    She's playing the actress in this bedroom scene
    She's learning her lines from glossy magazines
    Stringing all her pearls from her childhood dreams
    Auditioning for the leading role on the silver screen

    Patience my tinsel angel
    Patience my perfumed child
    One day they really love you

    You'll charm them with that smile
    But for now it's just another Chelsea Monday

    Drifting with her incense in the labyrinth of London
    Playing games with faces in the neon wonderland
    Perform to scattered shadows on the shattered cobbled aisles
    Would she dare recite soliloquies at the risk of stark applause

    She'll pray for endless Sundays as she enters saffron sunsets
    Conjure phantom lovers from the tattered shreds of dawn
    Fulfilled and yet forgotten the St. Tropez mirage
    Fragrant aphrodisiac, the withered tuberose

    Patience my tinsel angel, patience my perfumed child
    One day they really love you, you'll charm them with that smile
    But for now it's just another Chelsea Monday

    [Hello John, did you see The Standard about four hours ago?
    Fished a young chick out of The Old Father
    Blond hair, blue eyes. She said she wanted to be an actress or something
    Nobody knows where she came from, where she was going
    Funny thing was she had a smile on her face
    She was smiling, what a waste]

    Catalogue princess, apprentice seductress
    Buried in her cellophane world in glitter town
    Of Chelsea Monday
