lady godiva lyrics – boney m

her name was lady godiva
a lady so brave and so strong
her husband the earl of mercia
he treated her terribly wrong

she’s a lady
she’s a lady

she rode naked on horseback
to stop him from his tax increase
but people in town closed their curtains
than prison for living in peace

*she’s a lady
she’s a lady
she’s a lady, lady godiva
the hero of coventry
l-l-lady lady godiva
she rode into history

then sneaking a glance through the window
was a guy they called peeping tom
he caught a glimpse and was blinded
curiosity sometimes is wrong

*(repeat)

people liked lady godiva
respectfully looking away
they honoured incredible courage
her legend lives until today

*(repeat, repeat)
