 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

The summer sun sets a vicious circus
When shadows held the world in place
But today I felt a chill in my apartment's
Coolest place
"Fuggi regal Fantasima"
The village larks cannot be heard
Cause all the crows got panderers
I can't escape these velvet drapes,
Don't want my rings to fall off my fingers
"Fuggi Regal Fantasima"

The mirror I find hard to face
Cause I fear its a long way down

Got to get away from here, I think I know
Which hemisphere
Crazy me don't think there's pain in Barcelona
They dance you 'round a waltz confound
But I fear it's a long way down
Yes I fear its a long way down

Even if that straw I pull
And I got to fight that bull
Nothing really does compare to Barcelona
Besides in Spain Don Juan's to blame

But I fear it's a long way down
Yes it's a long way down
Cause I fear it's a long way down
And I fear I won't be around

Got to get away from here, I think I know
Which hemisphere

Make sure I have all my papers
Laying out my summer clothes
Search for traps in vain like scratching
So my suitcase I can close
"Fuggi Regal Fantasima"
