Venus In Furs
Monster Magnet Lyrics


Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girl child in the dark
Clubs and bells, your servant, don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorn the imperious
Severin', severin' awaits you there
I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girl child in the dark
Taste the whip, now plead for me not lightly
Taste the whip, plead for me

unicorns and rainbows and chicken and stars

I worked at Pizza Port Brewing years ago and one night after closing when we were cleaning the place up someone put this on the jukebox over 10 times on repeat. It was like being in some weird alternate reality after the 3rd go in a row.

Great cover version. Something extra with the guitars :)

Other than the original this is the best I've have ever heard, capturing the vibe to perfection....those guitars are sublime.

such a perfectly metered iambic verve

sekhmet ra ptah

@TheSilentAstronaut Referring to the metering as being my version of perfection & referring to the verve as iambic. Never fear, the States will never speak Queen's English; as we've created our own version, thanks in part to E.E. Cummings. A meter is a rhythmic pattern of a stanza and an iamb is a metrical foot consisting of unstressed syllables followed by stressed syllables utilized as a unit of measurement in poetry. Verve is an energetic style...hence perfectly metered iambic verve.
