about

Met a girl once who made me dream strange dreams of Lebanon. She had me at "Palestine."

lyrics

Dreams of Lebanon

"Cheeky cheeky monkey what is it you're trying to say?
I'm all ears and eyes for you"
I'm feeling sub-suburban in the shadow of the stories of the
Places where you go – and the things you do
And this giant world
In which you seem to move

The director's assistant is dishing out some secrets
Bout the wife of the famous man
The fisheries inspector's telling all about the dancefloor
Moves that hooked Hugh Grant
And I'm just alone with you
In the pro-pro-pro-proverbial crowded room

Cos you had me at "Palestine"
With the pinhole cameras
And the darkroom in a john
You've left me upended in the air
With the strangest dreams
Of trips to Lebanon

"Cheeky cheeky monkey do your best to catch your breath
This hardly qualifies as stress"
The Alitalia blanket leaves me colder than the oceans
That separate the east from the west
And rest from the best
And me from you

You had me at "Palestine"
With the pinhole cameras
And the darkroom in the john
You've left me upended in the air
With the strangest dreams
Of trips to Lebanon
The strangest dreams
Of trips to Lebanon
