You're so sheer you're so chic

Getting excited about tonight's Proms in the Park celebration - and the rain looks likely to hold off! Whew...

As a little taster of our headline act, Mr Bryan Ferry, I thought I would post one of his finest moments - Virginia Plain!

Make me a deal and make it straight
All signed and sealed, I'll take it
To Robert E. Lee I'll show it
I hope and pray he don't blow it 'cause
We've been around a long time just try try try tryin' to
Make the big time

Take me on a roller coaster
Take me for an airplane ride
Take me for a six day wonder but don't you
Don't you throw my pride aside besides
What's real and make believe
Baby Jane's in Acapulco We are flyin' down to Rio
Throw me a line I'm sinking fast
Clutching at straws can't make it
Havana sound we're trying hard edge the hipster jiving
Last picture shows down the drive-in
You're so sheer you're so chic
Teenage rebel of the week
Flavours of the mountain streamline
Midnight blue casino floors
Dance the cha-cha through till sunrise
Open up exclusive doors; oh wow!

Just like flamingos look the same
So me and you, just we two got to search for something new
Far beyond the pale horizon
Some place near the desert strand
Where my Studebaker takes me
That's where I'll make my stand but wait
Can't you see that Holzer mane?
What's her name? Virginia Plain.

Marvellous! Although I'm not expecting the outrageous costumes - nor Brian Eno - to be in evidence tonight.
