the count of monte christo lyrics – noisettes

so the count of monte christo
threw the cape over his head
gave me a penny for my thoughts
but wouldn’t get no change, just
old aged rhythms
they were singing in his brain for
a mechanical crusade
tried to shoot down his aeroplane

i see, you see
ain’t no more honey from this bee
i see, you see
stung you’ve got a hold on me
i see, you see
ain’t no more honey from this bee
i see, you see
stung you’ve got a hold

i want to make you feel so special
it’s time to break the ice
bless you and your wicked ways
for i guess that these are stranger days
but the tact must change for
the d*ch*ss to reveal her face
i’d give you all my pennies
for your gallantry at tomorrow’s gate

when i see, you see
ain’t no more honey from this bee
i see, you see
i’m stung you’ve got a hold on me
i see, you see
ain’t no more honey from this bee
i see, you see
i’m stung you’ve got a hold

so the count of monte christo
threw the cape over his head
gave me a penny for my thoughts
but wouldn’t get no change, just
old aged rhythms
they were singing in his brain for
a mechanical crusade
tried to shoot down his aeroplane

i see, you see…
