Odeon

Lyrics

 

I know a bar not very far

Less than a minute from the Limmat close to the Kronenhalle

Where literaries and Mata Hari’s

And Russian Revolutionaries would meet after dark

 

Drinkin’ Champagne by the glass or an Italian wine

The Art Nuevo chandelier takes ya back in time

Albert Einstein I see with James Joyce and Herman Hesse

Sayin,’ ‘Nowadays too many people are willing to die

But not to live.’

 

Ode, ode, ode, ode, Odeon

Come-drink with me while the night is young

We’ll laugh with Bohemians and vagabonds

Won’t you come along?

We’ll fly, so high tonight at the Odeon

Ode, ode, Odeon, Ode, ode Odeon

 

Artists painters, sinners and sainters

People paradin’ on the sidewalk down the boulevard  

We’ll drink espressos, write manifestos

Chill with Dadaists, expressionists and the Avant-garde

 

Sweet Lucy and patchouli are in the air

Benito’s incognito with Vladimir

Have a Martini with Puccini who’s singin’ there

Moment to moment just live like you own it

And hope to die before you get old

 

Ode, ode, ode, ode, Odeon

Come drink with me while the night is young

We’ll laugh with Bohemians and vagabonds

Till the morning comes

We’ll fly, so high tonight the Odeon

Ode, ode, Odeon

My home away from home

Ode, ode, Odeon
