Young Cleopatra lyrics

I see them offering you gum
I hear the swarming schoolkids hum
A tribe of polyester warriors spellbound
They bring you offerings to please
Like cigarettes or new lps
Youll have them on their knees and begging
Just to play with your comb
One glance from those two eyes
Will seal your playground empire

My oh my, what a sight for sore eyes, young cleopatra
My oh my, what a wonderful prize, young cleopatra
Youll never be a queen unless you do as youre told
You wouldnt understand it being fourteen years old
Dont ever give your love for free
But then again, dont even let it be sold

You have your teachers in a trap
Theres no age limit or no gap
To who you set alight with firebombs, .........
Im glad your father is my friend
And now that school is at an end
Hes only an excuse for me
To wait here at your palace gates
One glance from those two eyes
Will seal your playground empire

Your school uniform looks grey on others and silver on you
Your yellow wooden rule a golden sceptre to prove its true

Youre at the youth club near the drums
The young guitarist buzzer strums
Anything his royal majesty wishes
Your borrowed perfume fills the air
Pale nostrils start to flare
Its more than some can bear
But this is your court and they are your dogs
One glance from those two eyes
Will seal your playground empire
