Versuri Flight Of The Conchords - Rambling Through the Avenues of Time

Album: Flight Of The Conchords - I Told You I Was Freaky

I was wandering through the streets of the city
Rambling through the avenues of time
When from nowhere my eyes fell onto a girl, and by chance her eyes fell onto mine
So I sat and I acted all nonchalant
She smoked her lavender cigarette
Reading the future that lay in my hands, as my shadow played a bass clarinet
(Where are you going with this Bret?)
We waltzed down a moonlit boulevard
Just two silhouettes in the mist
(Oh yes)
Days went by and years went by
Moments went by when we kissed
(When was this?)
She said "your beard is woven of heartache"
And we'll drink for the lonely, tonight
And the moon is a horny old drunkard
(Uh Bret, could you please move over to your right?)
We drank dandelion wine and we reminisced about the moment when we first met that day
(I'm trying to watch TV)
Then we reminisced about how we first reminisced
(Oh yea? Sounds a bit gay)
She handed me a broken memory
A keepsake to forever-more save
That a brief taste of love is as sweet as any
And with that she made her way

She said her name was a secret
Then she said her name was Cherie
(Is her middle name Cherie?
So its a secret Cherie? Maybe?)
Hmm maybe
(What'd she look like?)
She looked like a Parisian river
(What, dirty?)
She looked like a chocolate eclair
(Thats rare)
Her eyes were reflections of eyes
(Ohh nice)
And the rainbows danced in her hair
(Oh yea)
She reminded me of a winter's morning
(What, frigid?)
Her perfume was Eau De Toilette
(What does that mean?)
She was comparable to Cleopatra
(Quite old?)
She was like Shakespeare's Juliet
(What 13?)
The bohemians of SoHo did pirouettes, as we waltzed through the streets of Manhattan
On rivers of ribbon and sailboats of songs
(Bret, did any of this actually happen?)
The girl I described, she's as real as the wind
Its true, I saw her today
The other details are inventions
Because I prefer her that way
