SPY STORY [BUCKLEY/SMITH]

She slithers like an iguana
into the steamy sauna
her intention disappearing in the mist

-BREAK-

She slips into the bar
she slips something into his drink
then she slips out with everything she wants

In a Mumbai sweat
she neutralizes a threat
a wire around the neck has that effect

-BREAK-

A body in the Bosporus
neither Asian nor European
she may or may not have had something to do with it

A shootout in Kowloon
attacked by a dozen goons
narrowly escaping with a flesh wound and another psychological scar

a nine-car chase
in a one-horse town
means she got away clean once again

-BREAK-

Her mission is to infiltrate
and secretly expropriate
intelligence from unsuspecting dummies

A purloined microchip
hidden under a fake fingernail
a manicure job to prevent a nuclear war

One day she’s a blonde
the next day she's a redhead
some days she doesn’t even recognize herself

She may not believe in God
but she can't not believe in Satan
she sees him every day at work

-CODA-

Really clever lyrics and touches. Loved that little scream.

Congratulations Warren. I think you may well have written the theme song for the next James Bond movie.

What gets left out
Funny, some of the more imaginative lines got cut as being too bizarre for the general nature of the story - but that's songwriting for you : )
