Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel - Mr. Raffles lyrics

Harley

Man, it was mean to be seen in the robes you wore for Lent
You must've known that it was Easter
There for a while in your smile I could see Mexico blood say
'This is true, I was a teaser'
There were a thousand manitas being exchanged for pesetas.

Man, it was hard not to laugh out loud
I couldn't believe the size of the crowd
You must have fooled them into coming
Wow, there were women and children too
They would have hanged us if they knew
I think I know for certain
Inside you sniggered so hearty, you only came for the party
Man, it was mean, it was mean, man it was mean.

Remember the time, what a time, we had down in Barcelona
After you'd been slaying babies
There, for a time, I was fooled by your disguises
But I never thought of smashing rules
You wore the yellow bandana and gave out heavenly manna.

Then in Amsterdam you were perfect fun
You never let on you had a gun
And then you shot that spanish dancer
The speed at which we ran for a mile or two
They would have crucified us if they knew
I think I know for certain
Inside you sniggered so hearty, we only killed for the party
Man, it was mean, it was mean, man it was mean.

You think of him ...................
...............................................
You can be this way for ever and ever
.............................................

Man, show me something I've never seen
You're only real in your dream machine
And all your games a little drastic
Just throw me out if I get obscene
But that's the way that I've always been
I think I know for certain
Inside you sniggered so hearty, we're only living a party
Man, it was mean, it was mean, man it was mean.

We're having a party
Ooh-ooh, we're having a party
