Mystery Babylon

from the album "Outdoor Elvis"

Words and Music by Camarillo Eddy
1989 Broken Songs

she's got a giant head
we've got the hat to fit it
she'll take us all to bed
what she wants, she can get it

have you heard about the girl
the prettiest in the world
have you heard about the girl
named Mystery Babylon

she wears her gold and pearls
and sits upon the water
and every boy and girl
is drinking her elixir

have you heard about the girl
the wonder of the world
everybody wants a date
with Mystery Babylon

in scarlet, fine raiment
(glass of wine held high)
the harlot seeks payment
so lay us down to die

there's fear now in her eyes
i guess she knows what's comin'
they'll say she once was wise
so beautiful, so cunnin'

have you heard about the girl
the prettiest in the world
have you heard about the girl
named Mystery Babylon
everybody wants a date with Mystery Babylon
