cd imgEMPIRE BURLESQUE

  Empire Burlesque session, Cherokee Studio, Hollywood LA - 28.jan.1984 

Well i thought that the rain would cool things down
But it looks like it don't
I'd like to get you to change your mind
But it looks like you won't.
From now on i'll be busy
Ain't goin' nowhere fast
I'm just glad it's over
I'm seeing the real you at last.

Well i risked my neck for you
Didn't i take chances?
Didn't i rise above all 
The most unfortunate circumstances?
Well i have had some rotten nights
Didn't think that they would pass
I'm just thankful an' grateful
To be seeing the real you at last.

I'm hungry an' i'm irritable
An' i'm tired of this bag of tricks
At one time there was nothing wrong with me
That you could not fix.
Well i sailed through the storm
Strapped to the mast
But now the time has come
An' i'm seeing the real you at last.

When i met you baby
You didn't show no visible scars
You could ride like Annie Oakley
You could shoot like Belle Starr.
Well, i don't mind a reasonable amount of trouble
Trouble always comes to pass
All i care about now is that
I'm seeing the real you at last.

Well, i'm gonna quit this baby talk now
I guess i should have known
I got troubles, i think maybe you got troubles
I think maybe we'd better leave each other alone.
Whatever you gonna do
Please do it fast
I'm still tryin' to get used to
Seeing the real you at last.  up

Well i thought that the rain would cool things down
But it looks like it don't
I'd like to get you to change your mind
But it looks like you won't.
From now on i'll be busy

When i met you baby
You didn't show no visible scars
You could ride like Annie Oakley
You could shoot like Belle Starr
Well, i don't mind a reasonable amount of trouble
Trouble always comes to pass
All i care tho about now is that
I'm seeing the real you at last.

Say goodbye to Frank Riley
Say goodbye to Francis Jordan too
Funny how i never did know
How they were so tied up with you.
Well, it never ceases to amaze me
All these surprises that come to pass
Well it's all over now
I'm seein' to real you at last.

Well, i'm gonna quit this baby talk now
I guess i should have known
I got troubles, i think maybe you got troubles
I think maybe we'd better leave each other alone.
Whatever you gonna do
Please do it fast
I'm still tryin' to get used to
Seeing the real you at last.  up
