provavelmente esta foi a primeira canção dos roxy music de que gostei mesmo. sei exactamente quando a ouvi pela primeira vez: tinha ido estudar uma tarde para casa de um colega e um irmão dele, depois do lanche, pôs este disco a tocar. gosto de pensar que é uma imagem nacarada, inscrita a madrepérola na memória.

Turn the lights down / Way down low / Turn up the music / Hi as fi can go
All the gang's here/ Everyone you know / It's a crazy scene
Hey there just look over your shoulder / Get the picture' /No no no no .......(Yes)
Walk a tightrope / Your life-sign-line / Such a bright hope / Right place, right time
What's your number' / Never you mind / Take a powder
But hang on a minute what's coming round the corner' / Have you a future'
No no no no .......(Yes)

Well I've been up all night again / Party-time wasting is too much fun
Then I step back thinking / Of life's inner meaning / And my latest fling
It's the same old story / All love and glory / It's a pantomime
If you're looking for love / In a looking glass world / It's pretty hard to find
Oh mother of pearl / I wouldn't trade you / For another girl
Divine intervention / Always my intention / So I take my time
I've been looking for something / I've always wanted / But was never mine
But now I've seen that something / Just out of reach - glowing - / Very Holy grail
Oh mother of pearl / Lustrous lady / Of a sacred world
Thus: even Zarathustra / Another-time-loser / Could believe in you
With every goddess a let down / Every idol a bring down / It gets you down
But the search for perfection / Your own predilection /Goes on and on and on and on
Canadian Club love / A place in the Country / Everyone's ideal
But you are my favorita / And a place in your heart dear / Makes me feel more real
Oh mother of pearl / I wouldn't change you / For the whole world
You're highbrow, holy / With lots of soul / Melancholy shimmering
Serpentine sleekness / Was always my weakness / Like a simple tune
But no dilettante / Filigree fancy / Beats the plastic you
Career girl cover / Exposed and another / Slips right into-view
Oh looking for love / In a looking glass world / Is pretty hard for you
Few throwaway kisses / The boomerang misses / Spin round and round
Fall on featherbed quilted / Faced with silk / Softly stuffed eider down
Take refuge in pleasure / Just give me your future / We'll forget your past
Oh mother of pearl / Submarine lover / In a shrinking world
Oh lonely dreamer / Your choker provokes / A picture cameo
Oh mother of pearl / So so semi-precious / In your detached world
Oh mother of pearl / I wouldn't trade you / For another girl
