ballrooms of versailles lyrics – army of lovers

the ballrooms of versailles
like dragons riding high
we dance the nights away
life is glam and gay

fountains cry tokai
at ballrooms of versailles

the gardens where we play
(gardens where we play)
the queen has gone astray
salute czar nicolai

the night the party died
at ballrooms of versailles

hail knight in shining armor
the emperor’s decree
the clock strikes midnight hour
arrive from gay paris

a world of games and duels
and secret go-betweens
throw marks or pounds or rubels
pay life to share the scene

the ballrooms of versailles
like dragons riding high
(dragons riding high)
we dance the nights away
life is glam and gay

fountains cry tokai
at ballrooms of versailles

the gardens where we play
(gardens where we play)
the queen has gone astray
salute czar nicolai

the night the party died
at ballrooms of versailles

a court of fallen angels
below the guillotine
betrayed by nightly rangers
doomed unforgiven sin

the struggle of the cl*sses
the birth of bourgeoisie
beheaded by the m*sses
by god that queen was me

the ballrooms of versailles
like dragons riding high
(dragons riding high)
we dance the nights away
life is glam and gay

fountains cry tokai
at ballrooms of versailles

the ballrooms of versailles
like dragons riding high
(dragons riding high)
we dance the nights away
life is glam and gay

fountains cry tokai
at ballrooms of versailles

the gardens where we play
(gardens where we play)
the queen has gone astray
salute czar nicolai

the night the party died
at ballrooms of versailles

ballrooms of versailles
ballrooms of versailles
ballrooms of versailles
