Lyrics to Do The Strand (Live 1974)

Lyrics to the song Do The Strand (Live 1974) as recorded by Roxy Music.


There's a new sensation a fabulous creation
A danceable solution to teenage revolution

Do the strand love when you feel love
It's the new way and 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 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 oases Eskimos and Geordies
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 last forever
But it can't beat strand power

The Sphynx and Mona Lisa
Lolita and Guernica
Did the strand



Do The Strand (Live 1974)
