Duran Duran - The Man Who Stole A Leopard lyrics

rate me

o you know where we are?

I'm longing for the dark

Of our nocturnal life

It begins and ends with you

Don't spill my secret


You were once running wild hiding in the morning mist

Game in bonds - I make you mine

I thought that I could resist

But the leopard in you... silently... preyed on me

I made my way back home (did you follow her)

I handled her with care (quiet and controlled)

So elegant and sleek (when I'm not afraid)

I need her to be near (does she belong to you?)

Don't spill my secret


Deserted by my friends (don't they understand?)

She so much more than them (how could they compare?)

So now she's just for me (no one else can say)

I watch her while she sleeps? (for sure she naps on you)?

Don't spill my secret

It's been quite a while

Since we were last outside can't lie I'll miss the chance

Now that we both partake can silence kill the cat?

Prisoners of our thoughts? the smell will throw us out?

Don't spill my secret

(Repeat during newscast)...


"Today a man was taken from his apartment on the New Jersey shore and arrested

Under suspicion of entrapment of a wild animal. Police, after forced entry,

Discovered a caged leopard in the building! The fully grown feline was said

To be surprisingly domesticated.? before preparing her for relocation.

A large crowd is gathered outside to watch the beautiful creature as a giant

Cage was lowered slowly onto the street by a crane. From here, the leopard

Was transferred into the back of a truck for the journey ahead. A thoughtful

Onlooker said it's extraordinary to think that any human being could have

Lived so?silently? with such a dangerous animal. Police are saying the captive has simply befriended? the creature and barely left her side. It's alleged that he hunted her in the wild and expertly forged documents to facilitate her illegal export to the United States of America. The incident has already created much controversy and is now likely to lead to a major international investigation into the life of the man who stole a leopard."
