Budapest – Jethro Tull

(the translation wasn’t clear.)
Could be a budding stately hero.
International competition in a year.
She was a good enough reason for a party…
(well, you couldn’t keep up on a hard track mile)
while she ran a perfect circle.
And she wore a perfect smile
in Budapest…hot night in Budapest.

We had to cozzy-up in the old gymnasium…
dusting off the mandolins and checking on the gear.
She was helping out at the back-stage…
stopping hearts and chilling beer.
Yes, and her legs went on for ever.
Like staring up at infinity
through a wisp of cotton panty
along a skin of satin sea.
Hot night in Budapest.

You could cut the heat, peel it back with the wrong side of a knife.
Feel it blowing from the side-fills. Feel like you were playing for your life
(if not the money.)
Hot night in Budapest.

She bent down to fill the ice box
and stuffed some more warm white wine in
like some weird unearthly vision
wearing only T-shirt, pants and skin.
You know, it rippled, just a hint of muscle.
But the boys and me were heading west
so we left her to the late crew
and a hot night in Budapest.
It was a hot night in Budapest.

She didn’t speak much English language…
(she didn’t speak much anyway.)
She wouldn’t make love, but she could make good sandwich
and she poured sweet wine before we played.
