Roxy Music - Virginia Plain

(ferry)

Make me a deal and make it straight
All signed and sealed, iґll take it
To robert E. Lee iґll show it
I hope and pray he donґt blow it ґcause
Weґve been around a long time just try try try tryinґ to
Make the big time...
Take me on a roller coaster
Take me for an airplane ride
Take me for a six days wonder but donґt you
Donґt you throw my pride aside besides
Whatґs real and make believe
Baby janeґs in acapulco we are flyinґ down to rio

Throw me a line iґm sinking fast
Clutching at straws canґt make it
Havana sound weґre trying hard edge the hipster jiving
Last picture shows down the drive-in
Youґre so sheer youґre so chic
Teenage rebel of the week
Flavours of the mountain steamline
Midnight blue casino floors
Dance the cha-cha through till sunrise
Open up exclusive doors oh wow!
Just like flamingos look the same
So me and you, just we two got to search for something new
Far beyond the pale horizon
Some place near the desert strand
Where my studebaker takes me
Thatґs where iґll make my stand but wait
Canґt you see that holzer mane?
Whatґs her name virginia plain

According to the Virginia Plain Songfacts, lead singer Bryan Ferry took the song's title from a painting he did titled "Virginia Plain," when he was an art student. It featured a huge packet of Virginia Slims cigarettes with a picture of Andy Warhol superstar Baby Jane Holzer on the front, standing in the middle of a plain.
