Roxy Music Tour 2001


Do the Strand

There´s a new sensation, a fabulous creation
A danceable solution o teenage revolution
Do the Strand love when you feel love
It´s the new way that´s why we say
Do the Strand
Do it on the tables, Quaglino´s place or Mabel´s
Slow and gentle, sentimental
All styles served here Louis Seize he prefer
Laissez-faire Le Strand
Tired of the tango, fed up with fandango
Dance on moonbeams, slide on rainbows
In furs or blue jeans, you know what I mean
Do the Strand

Had your fill of Quadrilles, the Madison and cheap thrills
Bored with the Beguine, the samba isn´t your scene
They´re playing our tune by the pale moon
We´re incognito down the Lido
And we like the Strand
Arabs at oasis, Eskimos and Chinese
If you feel blue look through Who´s Who
See La Goulue and Nijinsky
Do the Strandsky
Weary of the Waltz and mashed potato schmaltz
Rhododendron is a nice flower
Evergreen it lasts forever
But it can´t beat Strand power
The Sphynx and Mona Lisa
Lolita and Guernica
Did the Strand
