Madame Ching (Music by Nanuchka)

I wrote these lyrics about the infamous female pirate for the band Nanuchka. Madame Ching was featured on their 2006 album ‘Mediterranean’.


Listen here:


Her shadow drowned my twin Her keys don’t fit the locks she just breaks in In the belly of a boat they salt the skins It’s creeping up the coast

With closing eyes they watch The faces of unusual clocks The pennies lose their shine and fill the socks They’re walking on their toes

Sorrow comes in twos Perfect sized hypocrite shoes Tomorrow’s no one’s friend You turned me over to them

For this ride The men all lose their teeth and curse the time The men all lose their memories of wine It’s somewhere down below It’s somewhere down below

The phones are always ringing off the hooks The heavy lifting’s all paid off the books The mermaids know the language of the crooks Sometimes they need a tow

Sorrow comes in twos Perfect sized hypocrite shoes Tomorrow’s no one’s friend You turned me over to them
