The Model

Live video

Neil Hannon: This is a song that I did not write. Instead it is a song that someone else wrote.
This is for you.
One, two, three, four.

She’s a model and she’s looking good.
I’d like to take her home, that’s understood.
She’s playing hard to get, she smiles from time to time.
It only takes a camera to change her mind.

She’s going out to night-clubs drinking just champagne
And she has been drinking nearly all the men.
She’s playing a game and you can hear them say:
“She’s looking good, for beauty we will pay.”

She’s posing for consumer products now and then.
For every camera she gives the best she can.
I saw her on the cover of a magazine.
Now she’s a big success I want to see her again.

Neil Hannon: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
