Manfred Mann - Cubist Town lyrics

It was La Rue Apollinaire
I wandered round and round the busy square
I turned and floated gently upside down
And one by one the people gathered round

The rivers and the bridges turn to blue
The thin edge of the night is creeping through
The orange sun is dying on the line
And slowly melts into the sea of wine

Good night, cubist town, good night
The day has vanished with the night
The light has vanished with the day
And the bridal pair slip quietly away

The table groans the evening meal's begun
The wedding song of love has just been sung
But there's too much of this, too much for me
I go outside where darkness sets me free

Good night, cubist town, good night
The day has vanished with the night
The light has vanished with the day
And the bridal pair slip quietly away

I thought I saw the house where you were born
A yellow house, the colour of the corn
I thought I saw strange beasts up in the sky
But music filled my mind and they passed by

Good night, cubist town, good night
The day has vanished with the night
The light has vanished with the day
And the bridal pair slip quietly away

But music filled my mind, and they passed by

Good night, cubist town, good night
The day has vanished with the night
Good night, cubist town, good night
The night has vanished with the day

Good night, cubist town, good night
The day has vanished with the night
Good night, cubist town, good night
