How about these Jackie Leven lyrics for the Doll By Doll song 'Stripshow' from their 2nd album 'Gypsy Blood'. Still one of my favourite songs and long overdue for a CD reissue. The words are forever lodged in my brain and all came back straightaway when I heard an mp3 of the song on the Jackie Leven website at http://www.jackieleven.com

When the stripshow is over and the management have turned off the light
Silent people had walked back into the night
I thought of you still living alone

When the neon universe was winking to an end
Taxi drivers yawned from Earls Court to The Strand
I thought of you decorating your new home

I know they say love is blind
But if your heart was touching mine

The city was bursting into flower for the spring
It's time to dress up in that old costume again
Before we go down to the stripshow

From Tokyo to Soho ladies are doing the same dance
A fear of distance masquerading as romance
As we all go down to the stripshow

I know they saye love is blind
But if your heart was touching mine

I'll give you something that you can't ignore
I'll give you something you've been searching for
I'll give you something that you can't ignore
I'll give you something you've been searching for

A plastic baby floating down your canal
Two drunken playboys trying hard to be pals
Some kind of celebration for drawing blood from a stone

When the stripshow is over and the management have turned off the light
Silent people had walked back into the night
I thought of you still living alone

I know they saye love is blind
But if your heart was touching mine

I'll give you something that you can't ignore
I'll give you something you've been searching for
I'll give you something that you can't ignore
I'll give you something you've been searching for
