Sister Rosetta (2011 Version) (2011 Version)

The Noisettes

She's a caged animal
London by night
Crashing lights and cymbals
Queens of twilight
And if I was you
I'd use the loo
Before the long drive
We compliment each other
Just like Satan and Christ

Baby when I am laid to rest
May my laughter remain
Like your kiss blew me away

Answer your spirit
I gotta know right now
I see you before me
Won't you show me how

I wear my hair fizzy
I don't copy no style
Cause kissin' and a scrubbin'
Has consequences
You're on the bus again
Past Big Ben
With your rip off oyster card
Tell your A.S.B.O. friend
To sling his hook and "go make your girl smile"

'Cause baby when I am laid in earth
May my laughter remain
Like your kiss blew me away
Left your scent on my pillow
Sister Rosetta was playin'
The congregation insane
Drinkin' to the house with no name

You gotta capture the spirit
I gotta know right now I see you before me
Won't you show me how I am the landlord
You'll be my troubadour
Was it better before me?
Won't you show me how, how?

You gotta capture the spirit
I gotta know right now I see you before me
Won't you show me how
'Cause I am the landlord
And you'll be my troubadour
Better before me?
You just don't know how

Capture the spirit
And let it all hang out
I see you before me
Darlin' show me now
I am the landlord
You'll be my troubadour
Oh oh oh oh oh
Won't you show me how, how?
