Lyrics to Whirlwind

Lyrics to the song Whirlwind as recorded by Roxy Music.


May Day cut down to size again
What then when less is more my friend

I'll change let me start again
Disguise it's too weird to explain
Why I'll always call your name
Adieu, with you I could be anything
That I want to be or see

Whirlwind wildfire and driving rain
Wheels spin bowl me over hurricane
Whirlwind crack your cheeks and blow
Me far so far
How far is Shangri-La from here?
And is it this way?

There she blows tear me down tornado
Whirlpool drag me to the deeps below
Whirlwind will a wildcat strike be tame
Earthquake shake me to my feet again
It's crosswords go you near
A fatal clue I fear
This case is closed
Elementary, my dear
Whirl, whirlwind
