Pet Shop Boys The Sodom And Gomorrah Show Lyrics

I lived a quiet life

A stranger to champagne

I never dared to venture out

To cities of the plain

I’d heard about their way of life

Took it with a pinch of salt

The freedom and the time to play

A life so easy

It intrigued me

When you called to say:

“Are you gonna go

To the Sodom and Gomorrah Show?

It’s got everything you need for your complete

Entertainment and instruction

Sun, sex, sin, divine intervention,

Death and destruction

The Sodom and Gomorrah show

Is a once-in-a-lifetime production”

I think it’s true to say

My life was changed that night

In the liberated

Atmosphere

All around me

Someone found me

Whispered in my ear

“Are you gonna go

To the Sodom and Gomorrah Show?

It’s got everything you need for your complete

Entertainment and instruction

Sun, sex, sin, divine intervention,

Death and destruction

The Sodom and Gomorrah Show

Is a once-in-a-lifetime production”

Then we went on

After-hours

There was place down below

It was there I realised

The meaning of the show

You’ve got to love

To learn to live

Where angels fear to tread

I did it and I don’t regret the day

Even now

I think of how

You turned to me to say

“Are you gonna go

To the Sodom and Gomorrah Show?

It’s got everything you need for your complete

Entertainment and instruction

Sun, sex, sin, divine intervention,

Death and destruction

The Sodom and Gomorrah Show

Is a once-in-a-lifetime production”
