Victoria, Victoria

lyrics

You could ring your golden bell
Carry dreams right from your wishing well
There’s nothing left between us, honey
Nothing but the world

Your streets are green, your skies are blue
Have you done all the things you wanted to?
There’s nothing left between us, honey
Nothing but the world

I watched your building
Through my tin can in the rain
You sat there waiting
Like a maiden on a swing
Oh, but for shame, your servants came
Did they teach you anything

Victoria, Victoria
All your ships are setting sail
As you sit there like a daughter of the king

Because I’m rich, because I’m poor
Because I don’t know what my hands are for
No, I’d never hurt you, honey
No, I’d never change a thing

Your bed is warm and your breath is sweet
What would it take for you to be complete
No, I’d never hurt you, honey
No, I’d never change a thing

And a sea of soldiers keep you safe behind the walls
And all your lawyers they’ll take care of you, my doll
Oh, but for shame, your lovers came
Did they teach you anything

Victoria, Victoria
All your ships are setting sail
As you sit there like a daughter of the king
