Lyrics

I was at the chateau de la queen
Jacuzzi night one
Near the border of Paraguay
Sparkling white suit jacket
Black bag hung from her shoulder
Dim chandelier and the leather gloves
She was a dangerous liaison
Stranger in the shadow
All alone at the bar
Sips on rum on ice with thin on slice
With the stench of old cigarettes from the lobby

(Backstroke)
Keyhole, bedroom window, ladder down the fire escape
(Backstroke)
Charm hung on the bracelet next to the turquoise negligee
(Backstroke)
And cigarette burns slowly in the carpeted ashtray
Oh flamingo

Sometimes you fantasize
Being drenched in the yellow, Tahitian blues
Salty water slaps in to your ears
Lips puckered up, girl, and you hear nothing at all
Yeah you hear nothing at all
Backstroke

I was downtown at the old flamingo
Jacuzzi night two
No bodega, no balcony
She left the door barely cracked
Saw the 'do not disturb' sign
Hung from the door knob swinging back and forth
[In Mendonesia/Mendelesia?] expressionless, directionless
Coasting drifters in at the wall
Look for bass snuck into his ear
The cheap suit, bad cologne
Reflected neon lights collage

Yeah you hear nothing at all
Yeah you hear nothing at all
Backstroke
