Downtown Zurich, Saturday Night

from Years of a Monkey by Quartjar



This is a travel song.


I spent one Saturday evenin'
in Zurich, Switzerland.
There was not a whole lot to do.
I walked down to the lake,
man the Alps looked great!
It was a breathtaking view.

Amazing Swiss cuties
with amazing Swiss booties,
must be somethin' in the cheese
I knew if one of them looked at me
it would be my catastrophe
I'd go wholly weak in the knees.

I was strollin'
Downtown Zurich on a Saturday night
Stone-cold chillin', man,
Swiss-time killin'
Downtown Zurich on a Saturday night

A little band played the rock'n'roll
down by the sailboat dock, you know
They did Dylan and The King
And as the sun set in the west
the Swiss put on their party dress
10 o'clock by their Swatch, it started to swing

This one nice-lookin' lady Kraut
she came over to check me out
I was feelin' like a winner
Chatted me up for just a minute
But I was foreign and her heart wasn't in it
I went and had Chinese for dinner ... alone
