I Like You In Velvet
by Malcolm McLaren

There's a girl I simply dote on
She has no single flaw
A simple skirt and coat on
And a sailor had of straw
Yet she looks more splendid
Than all the world today
She'll soon be my intended
Perhaps that's why I say
It's you I love
Not your hat, your frock or your glove
I like you in velvet
I love you in plus
In satin you are just
Like your own lovely blush
You're charming in silk
Or a plain woollen shawl
But you're simply delightful
With nothing on at all
Maybe you'll be in your balldress
Or you perhaps I'll find,
Dressed in your "What'd you call dress?"
You're oh well, never mind

Road trip the whole European continent, early 90s, hearing this music. No cell phones, no social media. I miss this epic era.


Malcolm McLaren: an enigma - a self-confessed non musician but he kept coming up with extraordinary ideas, and managed to articulate them into astonishing records like this. The man was a genius, simple as. I was very sad when he died, as it meant that a huge intelligence has gone from popular music.

I haven't heard this song for 25 years, and for a post of this song on my total free behalve on facebook I did for musicians friends I knew in those times, in the 80's, I suddenly remember of a very special Britt, in the aera of the Sex Pistols and the always very over-dressed London scene, who sung something about a : it's not your frock your hat yours gloves I love, it's You. (then I don't understand what Malcom says....) And I've been listening to it for a non-stop 13 rounds, a beauty!


I used to drive thru a rainy London night with this loud, Such a great song

Skeeter Thai

I used to wear this album out, A damn good album.

Elizabeth Hann

You're so right.

randy scott

I played this over and over and over and over after hearing it the first time . It's amazing !


"But you're simply delightful With nothing on at all" still an extraordinary song!
