Blonde Venus

Blonde Venus (2012)—
Berlin Cabaret Crooner

—for Frank Sinatra

That's life, that's what all the people say.
Götterdämmerung in April,
Berlin in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune,
When I'm back on top, Bormann in June.

I said that's life, and as funny as it may seem
Those Nazis get their kicks,
Stompin' on the Welt...
But I don't much care, Buenos Aires baby,
Paperclip keeps flying me real high.

I've been a soldier, a Bankster, a spy,
I've been up and down and all around
And I know one thing:
Each time I find myself, in the gutter,
I pick myself up, spit on the human race.

That's life, you can't deny it,
It’s Beltway jackboots in May
But the Messerschmitt Moon in June
Just take one look at me, you think I’d tell a lie
I fly Nazi UFO’s up in the blue-eyed sky!

I've been a Von Braun pimp on the take,
A NASA Blonde Venus on a fling.
I've been up and down in cabarets
Each time I find myself showing a little leg,
A sucker flies by & picks me up again.

That's life, that's how it works,
Don’t deny it, don’t gimme a smirk
Your greedy heart knows it’s true
The Anglo-American Banksters are gonna
Go bankrupt big time when it’s all due.
