Michael Peter Smith

If you go to Alexandria
Get me some hashish
Score it from Daniela
On Rue D'Assassin Street
Windows on the ocean
Cool you in the heat
Watch out for the wild boys
Playing in the streets of Alexandria
Deep night
Bells and a caravan in sight
Like a dark wind
These sisters
Walk the streets of Alexandria

Nights in Alexandria
Laden with perfume
Ambergris and frankincense
Whisper in the room
Alleyways and passageways
Winding who knows where
Lovers lost in ecstasy
Up an ancient stair in Alexandria
Life like art is an open secret
Ragged desert
Satin dunes
Silent as the pyramids
Flesh and fever
Lovers and gamblers really play to lose

In Alexandria...

If you go to Alexandria
Bring me back a kiss
Tell them that I think of them
Whenever I'm like this
If you could get me five or ten more
I don't give a damn
Give it to Demetra
Score another gram

In Alexandria...

Sailing on the ocean
Sailing on the sea
Sailing on the opium
My lover brings to me
Love can be like opium
The world will disappear
Swear I'll always love her
By the prophet's beard

In Alexandria...

Go to Top

Recorded on: There
