lyrics

She speaks two languages at once
Not counting German, but who does
I’ve invented senseless words
that I’m sure she understands
All I’ll say is, it glides for me

She is Miss Belgium
She knows all the coolest bands
She is Miss Belgium
Slaying giants and severing hands

I am the last great useless work
I am the old news of these times
But she evokes the mystery without which
the world wouldn’t exist
And I’ve been meaning to crack all week

Sleep thrice more and I shall wake

They call her Miss Belgium
Mistress of endless compromise
Her name is Miss Belgium
Red devils burning in her eyes

She invented the bakelite saxophone
Pretender to the waffle iron throne
She paints big girls in her spare time
A southern neighbour in her prime

When I get confused, I hail Gambrinus’ muse
All hail Gambrinus’ muse

And her name is Miss Belgium
For fun she draws absurdist cartoons
Oh, Miss Belgium
Ten thousand thundering typhoons

They call her Miss Belgium
She knows the Marseillaise by heart
Miss Belgium
Of apple blossoms smells her art

Oh Miss Belgium, let’s not ever be apart
Oh Belgium, don’t break my heart
