Did you believe those things
We read in the papers?
And never mind that, can you meet me
Down at the Time Warp tonight?

Oh you look divine
That suit would get you into anywhere
Tonight I'll be, as you can see
The idol of an island far, far away

A man of straw in cloth of gold
Look into his eyes at the days of old
And bow to the cloth
And bow to the cloth

Can you believe those things
We've seen in the papers?
And never mind that, can you get
To the bar before the next egg starts?

The word goes 'round the eyes of a wife
And magazines with shiny pages
And my hay-head where will it stop?
And the boys in the shop continue to bop

A man of straw in cloth of gold
Look into his eyes to the days of old
And bow to the cloth
Bow to the cloth

Heading down, getting further down
And we've hit an iceburg
But I don't care what the people think
I will drink and drink till the damn ship sinks

A man of straw in cloth of gold
Look into his eyes to the days of old
A drowing man in a metal coat
The prince has fallen into the moat
To the cloth, to the cloth
