Artist/Band: David Byrne
Lyrics for Song: Princess
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - David Byrne



I saw a princess, she's riding the irt

She raised her eyes and I thought that she looked at me

In a disco I thought that I'd seen her before

She got married, and now she don't dance no more



She knew the doorman at every club in town

She'd go out dancing and stay out 'til early dawn

When they'd start throwing down, she would clear the floor

She got married and now she don't dance no more



The lights go out, the train is dark

Nobody moves, nobody talks...



She keeps her body well-hidden beneath her clothes

Where will we go when the club's all closed?

In comes a business man, and he pretends not to see

That there's a princess, and she's riding the irt

In comes a homeless man, she gives some money to him

Now she gets off, must be the end of the line



Ooooooh-ho-ho, she's looking back at me

Ooooooh-ho-ho, I thought she didn't see

Ooooooh-ho-ho, we used to walk that walk

Ooooooh-ho-ho, we used to talk that talk
