David Hamilton Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Mr. David Hamilton is photographing me
Down among the lilies, down among the lilies
Shooting with his Hasselblad beneath a willow tree
One foot in the river, I'm bored and slightly chilly
Verse 2
Thursday goes and then Friday goes
And I long to strike another pose
Rain begins to patter on the leaves
Verse 3
Soft focus eroticism, art photography
Mr. David Hamilton and me
Verse 4
Mr. David Hamilton is photographing me
Like a pervert teacher with his languid creature
Sketching out an adolescent sexuality
Where Nature longs for Culture, Culture longs for Nature
Verse 5
His big umbrella flash gun goes
He comes to rearrange my clothes
I must ensure that my bare legs are seen
Verse 6
Romanticism, Classicism, Soft Pornography
Mr. David Hamilton and me
Verse 7
In the south of France I hear he keeps a house for waifs and strays
Where teenage girls like me can come and learn
Stay in bed till three o'clock and lounge about with nothing on
He only asks for photos in return
Verse 8
(Instrumental)
Verse 9
Member of the Royal Photography Society
Mr. David, really, don't you think it's silly
A tank of liquid nitrogen, a cloud of carbon snow
Just to gild the lily, just to gild the lily
Verse 10
But if this lazy suffering
Can bring erection to the lap
Of just one man, it hasn't been in vain
Verse 11
Mr. David Hamilton is photographing me
Leaves begin to patter in the rain
Verse 12
(Instrumental)
Verse 13
Sunday goes and then Monday goes
And I long to strike another pose
A cow begins to nibble at my dress
Verse 14
Romanticism, Classicism, Soft Pornography
Mr. David Hamilton, I guess
