Flight Of The Conchords

Flight Of The Conchords - Rambling Through the Avenues of Time

rate me

I was wandering through the streets of the city

Rambling through the avenues of time

When from nowhere my eyes fell onto a girl

And by chance her eyes fell onto mine

So I sat and I acted all nonchalant

She smoked her lavender cigarette

Reading the future that lay in my hands

As my shadow played a bass clarinet

Where are you going with this, Bret?

We waltzed down a moonlit boulevard

Just two silhouettes in the mist, oh yes

Days went by and years went by

Moments went by when we kissed

When was this?

She said, "Your beard is woven of heartache"

And we'll drink for the lonely tonight

And the moon is a horny old drunkard

Uh, Bret, could you please move over to your right?

We drank dandelion wine and we reminisced

About the moment when we first met that day

I'm trying to watch TV

Then we reminisced about how we first reminisced

Oh yeah? Sounds a bit gay

She handed me a broken memory

A keepsake to forever-more save

That a brief taste of love is as sweet as any

And with that she made her way

Oh yeah, what was her name?

She said her name was a secret

Then she said her name was Cherie

Is her middle name Cherie

So it's a secret Cherie? Maybe?

Maybe

What'd she look like?

She looked like a Parisian river

What, dirty?

She looked like a chocolate ├ęclair

That's rare

Her eyes were reflections of eyes

Oh, nice

And the rainbows danced in her hair

Ah yeah

She reminded me of a winter's morning

What, frigid?

Her perfume was Eau De Toilette

What does that mean?

She was comparable to Cleopatra

Quite old?

She was like Shakespeare's Juliet

What thirteen?

The bohemians of SoHo did pirouettes

As we waltzed through the streets of Manhattan

On rivers of ribbon and sailboats of songs

Bret, did any of this actually happen?

Yes, the girl I described, she's as real as the wind

It's true, I saw her today

The other details are inventions

Because I prefer her that way
