Verse (0:18)

B
You'll be sorry when the sun has roasted you to
B
Lobster red, nothing said
B
When yellow has turned green to brown, divide by four
B
Multiply by nine, describe your divisions, anatomical derision



Chorus (0:40)

B                            
Lobster head and lobster feet
G        A
   On arriving with a third language
G            A                   B
   Tucked into your brief case, next to your toothbrush
G            A
Along with a copy of the 'Nouvel Observateur'

Verse (0:59)

 B                                      E    
While your sons and daughters who registered naught
 B
Under intensive electronic scanning
 B                          E   
You regard your body with regard to events
 B
With which nothing planned



Chorus (1:11)

B
Never lacked a sense of theater
G        A
    On returning with the tab you've gained
G            A                   B
    A head of world service, the best of your culture
    G                    A                   B
An evening of fun in the metropolis of your dream



Outro (1:24)

    G                    A                   B
An evening of fun in the metropolis of your dream
