THE MAMAS AND THE PAPAS
"European Blueboy"
(John Phillips)

Return your velvet suit to theatrical rent.
The streets of Soho will never repent.
And the tears that you cry rain on you.
And the tears that you cry are for you -
Weren't for Napoleon after Waterloo.

The madman came, he was hysterically spent;
The price out outrage was carelesly bent.
And the master of disguise, he has left.
And the promises that he made are all kept
Except for the Golden Fleece, he thought he would have sent.

The streets of Soho will never repent.
And the tears that you cry rain on you.
And the tears that you cry are for you -
Weren't for Napoleon after Waterloo.
