Momus – Jackie Onassis (performed by Milky)

From the album ‘Stop This!‘ (1996).

Lyrics

I never sleep from dusk ’til dawn, there’s always paparrazi
Just beyond the Whitehouse lawn the cameras point at me
Telephoto lenses like a nest of baby spiders
Flash! I wake up, rich as Midas
The air-conditioned offices of military dictators
Miniatures of Absolut and gold-plated vibrators
Ski resorts in Switzerland, a hand upon my stocking
Don’t be dumb, I’m numb

Jackie Onassis
Jackie Onassis
Jackie Onassis

Avoiding the photographers in my enormous glasses
I always look the other way when a funeral passes
I’m on a tanker full of blood in international waters
Heading for Havana
Words are made of turpentine and words are very stupid
I met a man the other day whose name was Mr Cupid
He offered me his heart and soul I found it rather funny
Because that man just couldn’t see that all I loved… was money

Jackie Onassis

Jackie Onassis

Jackie Onassis

Jackie Onassis
