  1. Odeon

From the recording 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
