Lyrics

Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory

Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory

I saw the ghost of Lena Zavaroni
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Hans Christian Andersen plays musical statues
To don't take it out on this world by Adam's apples
Sprinkling hundreds of thousands on a knickerbocker glory
I saw the ghost of Lena Zavaroni

We've got no room for technicolor
Emeric Pressburger said to Dietrich "knickerbocker"
Rows & rows of lightbulbs illuminated in speech bubbles
Alternating off and on every time I hit the button
Sprinkling hundreds of thousands on a knickerbocker glory
I saw the ghost of Lena Zavaroni

She had never seen traffic lights, lifts or escalators
Or layers of strawberries in the mouths of light entertainers
She had never seen traffic lights, lifts or escalators
Or layers of strawberries in the mouths of light entertainers

Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
I saw the ghost of Lena Zavaroni

Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory

Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory

Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
Vanilla, strawberry, knickerbocker glory
I saw the ghost of Lena Zavaroni
