Cityscape Skybaby
Lyrics
Cityscape Skybaby

She came in smelling of cabbages
Pumpkin roots and all winter's ravages
She came in around dawn
Took her coat off
Burdened down by the Russian winter
Felt the warmth of the hearth
Bathed a while naked in hot water
Wash away imminent disaster
Thinking through her today
And the murder
Of the bailiff and the landowner
Felt no shame
Only gain

Cleansed the pike
Peeled all the potatoes
Beetroots ripe for bellies of gigolos
Served it up for her son and her daughter
For the last time she imagines
Reprobates lie in wait

Baby bye-bye
(Bye-bye, bye-bye)
(Sky)
Bye-bye baby
(Sky, sky)
Skybaby
(Sky, sky)
Bye-bye baby
(Sky, sky)
Sweet vigilante
(Sky, sky)
Bye-bye baby
(Sky, sky)
Skybaby
(Sky, sky)
Bye-bye baby
(Sky, sky)
Sweet vigilante
(Sky)
Baby bye-bye

  • 10/ Cityscape Skybaby

    When we went to Colombia in 1997 we got invited to this Marxist village, they were having this five day fiesta to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the murder of the local landowner. It's a song inspired by that, but moved to a Russian pre-Revolutionary setting! We have such a derivative chorus at the end to counterbalance lines like "she came in smelling of cabbages".
