Beautiful Red Dress


Chère Laurie Anderson, chère Strange Angel, je t’adore…

Well I was down at the Zig Zag 
That’s the Zig Zag Bar & Grill 
And everybody was talking at once and it was getting real shrill. 
And I’ve been around the block 
But I don’t care I’m on a roll – 
I’m on a wild ride Cause the moon is full and look out baby – 
I’m at high tide. 
I’ve got a beautiful red dress 
And you’d look really good standing beside it.. I’ve got some beautiful new red shoes and they look so fine 
I’ve got a hundred and five fever and it’s high tide. 
Well just the other day I won the lottery 
I mean lots of money I got so excited 
I ran into my place and I said: HEY! 
Is anybody home? 
Nobody answered but 
I guess that’s not too weird 
Since I live alone. 
I’ve got a beautiful red dress 
And you’d look really good standing beside it.. Girls? 
We can take it 
And if we can’t we’re gonna fake it 
We’re gonna save ourselves 
We’re gonna make it 
And if we don’t we’re gonna take it 
We’re gonna save ourselves 
Save ourselves 
Well they say women shouldn’t be the president Cause we go crazy from time to time 
Well push my button, baby 
Here I come 
Yeah, look out, baby 
I’m at high tide 
I’ve got a beautiful red dress and you’d look really good standing beside it.. 
I’ve got a little jug of red sangria wine and we could take little sips from time to time 
I’ve got some bright red drop dead lips 
I’ve got a little red card and mechanical hips I’ve got a hundred and five fever!!! 
OK! OK! Hold it! 
I just want to say something. 
You know, for every dollar a man makes a woman makes 63 cents. 
Now, fifty years ago that was 62 cents. 
So, with that kind of luck, it’ll be the year 3,888 before we make a buck. 
But hey, girls? 
We can take it 
And if we can’t we’re gonna fake it 
We’re gonna save ourselves save ourselves 
(Yeah tell it to the judge) 
We’re gonna make it 
And if we don’t we’re gonna take it 
We’re gonna save ourselves save ourselves 
We’ve got a fever of a hundred and five and look baby 
It’s high tide. 
Well I could just go on and on and on… 
But tonight I’ve got a headache
