Chorus

Victoria victorious, she gives you dreams of flying.

Victoria victorious, she’ll tease you ‘till you’re blind.

Victoria victorious, she says she loves you true.

Victoria victorious,

            Believe,

                        ‘cause you’re a fool,

                                    and you know she’s lying

                                                lying

                                                            lying

                                                                        lying

                                    lying

                                                lying

                                                            lying

                                                                        lying

Verse 1

They walk into the bar, take their seats along the shelf.

They come in late and lonely ‘cause they want her for their self.

They spend their time and money, drinking at her well.

They go home broke and lonely, and they play their private hell.

 

Chorus

 

Verse 2

They come into the theater, tripping on their feet.

They’re talking loud and lonely while they stumble to their seat.

They’ve seen the show before, they think the end is going to change.

They go home cold and lonely, and they wallow in their pain.

 

Chorus

 

Verse 3

They go into the ballroom, ‘cause they want to watch her dance.

They pass up other harlequins, there’s only her romance.

They hide behind the shadows with their whiskey and their smoke.

They pay to watch her laugh at them and never get the joke.

 

Chorus
