Parralox - Lyrics (Official Website)


Parralox - Polyester


Written by Chris Stein and Deborah Harry

Verse 1
See the houses
Look at the trees swaying in the cool breeze
Oh, what a lovely street
It's a dead end
Hey, why don't you come on in?

French provincial
They do their best to stay neutral
Come on upstairs
Meet your polyester queen

Francine, Francine, Francine

Middle 8
You know about abundant women
Well, this girl only aims to please
Outside there's a load of noisy neighbors
Upstairs there's a polyester squeeze

Verse 2
This is your life
Smell the fragrant perfumed means
Darling, my dreams
Purely polyester queen (Francine)
Purely polyester queen (Francine)
Purely polyester Francine (Francine)
Purely polyester queen (Francine)
Purely polyester Francine (Francine)
