Requiem In Denim and Leopardskin – Pet Shop Boys

I thought it was like a film
Reviewed but never seen
Where everybody played themselves
As a drama king or queen
The music was overwhelming
Glittering and thin
Solemn and shabby like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin
I visualize the flashbacks
School, punk rock, success
Parties, too much of everything
The cliches, the candles, the mess

Lucian in the scene with David
Bryan in a tux
McCartney on a blitz in Zanzibar
All Hollywood Redux
Ossie’s last collection
Biba’s closing sale
A little more rouge on powdered cheeks
But the base is pale

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and soaring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

It ended with the motorbike
A search for evidence
Poring over old photographs
To make it all fake sense
Glamorous in its own way
Shouting above the din
Solemn and shabby like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

Johnny’s wearing brothel creepers
Malcolm’s round the block
Adam’s in a Jarman film
But look he’s let it rock
The Johnson’s leather jacket
Hair by Keith at Smile
All you need to make it big is sex and style

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and soaring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and soaring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

(Requiem in denim and leopardskin)

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and soaring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

This is our last chance for goodbye
Let the music begin
Shining and soaring like a requiem
In denim and leopardskin

Ego Music – Pet Shop Boys

Ego music, it’s all about me
Ego music, it’s all about me
Me, me, me, me
Yes, yes, yes, yes
You, you, you, you
No, no, no, no
Ego music, it’s all about me
Me, me, me, me
Yes, yes, yes, yes
You, you, you, you
No, no, no, no
Ego music, it’s all about me

Ego music, it’s all about
Sense of entitlement
Sense of entitlement
Ego music, it’s all about
Sense of entitlement
Sense of entitlement

I see myself as a building
My mind is the office where the world gets done
There’s a nightclub in the basement when I need some fun
And in the penthouse later, that’s where the magic happens

Me, me, me, me
Yes, yes, yes, yes
You, you, you, you
No, no, no, no
Ego music, it’s all about me

There’s a real purity to my work
A childish innocence
But I’m also smart and sophisticated
I mean I grew up on the street
Sometimes I think I’m a simple folk singer
Other times a scary rich diva
What can I tell you, I’m an artist
And of course I’ve always had the humanitarian vision
I think everyone knows that
My commitment is to my career
And then giving something back

Ego music, it’s all about
Vacuum slogans
And up your sentiments
Ego music, it’s all about
Fake humility, sense of entitlement
Ego music, it’s all about me
I am my own demographic
What does that say about me
Ego music, it’s all about me

Me, me, me, me
Yes, yes, yes, yes
You, you, you, you
No, no, no, no
Ego music, it’s all about me
Me, me, me, me
Yes, yes, yes, yes
You, you, you, you
No, no, no, no
Ego music, it’s all about me

READ  Positive Role Model - Pet Shop Boys

I think what fascinates people about me
And I’m really grateful to my fans
Is that I’m totally fearless
And people really get that
In this sea of negativity
I’m a statue of liberty
That’s why people love me
It’s humbling

Later Tonight – Pet Shop Boys

You wait ’til later
‘Til later tonight
You wait ’til later, ’til later
‘Til later tonight

That boy never cast a look in your direction
Never tried to hook for your affection
Dresses like the mod of your invention, tall and proud
He is the head boy of the school of thought
That plays in your intentions, night and day

And you wait ’til later
‘Til later tonight
You wait ’til later, ’til later
‘Til later tonight

And you wait ’til later
‘Til later tonight
You wait ’til later, ’til later
‘Til later tonight
‘Cause tonight always come
