Europa And The Pirate Twins
Thomas Dolby Lyrics


I was fourteen
She was twelve
Father traveled, hers as well, Europa
Down the beaches, hand in hand
Twelfth of never on the sand
Then war took her away
We swore a vow that day:

We'll be the Pirate Twins again, Europa
Oh my country, Europa
I'll stand beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta république, Europa

Nine years after
Who'd I see on the cover of a magazine?
Europa
Buy her singles and see all her films
Paste her pictures on my windowsill
But that's not quite the same, it isn't, is it?
Europa my old friend

We'll be the Pirate Twins again, Europa
Oh my country, Europa
I'll walk beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta république, Europa

Blew in from the hoverport
She was back in London
Pushed past the papermen
Calling her name

She smiled for the cameras
As a bodyguard grabbed me
Her eyes were gone forever as they drove her away

We'll be the Pirate Twins again, Europa
Oh my country, Europa
I'll walk beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta république, Europa
Down in some bar along the Seine, Europa
Oh my country, Europa
I'll walk beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta république, Europa

Lyrics:
Ok
I was fourteen, she was twelve
Father travelled, her's as well, Europa...
Down the beaches, hand in hand
Twelfth of never on the sand
Then war took her away
We swore a vow that day

We'll be the Pirate Twins again, Europa
Oh my country, Europa
I'll stand beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta république... Europa

Nine years after, who'd I see
On the cover of a magazine? Europa...
Buy her singles and see all her films
Paste her pictures on my windowsill
But that's not quite the same. It isn't, is it?
Europa my old friend

We'll be the Pirate Twins again, Europa
Oh my country, oh my country, Europa
I'll walk beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta république... Europa

Blew in from the hoverport
She was back in London
Pushed past the papermen
Calling her name
She smiled for the cameras
As the bodyguard grabbed me
Her eyes were gone forever
As they drove her away

We'll be the Pirate Twins again, Europa
Oh my country, Europa
I'll walk beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta république... Europa

We'll be the Pirate Twins again, Europa
Oh my country, look at my country now!
I'll stand beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta république... Europa

Down in some bar along the Strand, Europa
Oh my country, Europa
I'll walk beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta république... Europa

I can't believe there are only two of us here. This is a magical little song - and brilliantly produced.

Remember listening to this song back in the late 80s and still to this day, has a nasty beat

This song still holds up great today!  Love it still!  And I DON'T CARE that it's a drum machine!  There, I said it!  He used it better than anyone else.

Nothing wrong with a drum machine. Good comment.

@D Kemm It’s not a problem at all! And it’s very much possible he may have used it on some tracks. I’d have to listen closer on some of his tracks. I will admit, though, if he liked using the LinnDrum/the LM-1 to a degree, I certainly don’t blame him. Those sounds are as classic as what you’d get from the Simmons electronic drums
