Lyrics

IF YOU SEE HER OUT IN THE STREETS
YOU WON’T BELIEVE BOY WHAT YOU SEE
BUT SHE’S NO APPARITION SHE’S JUST A LIVING
GODDESS ON A MISSION

SHE IS KNOWN BY MANY NAMES
SHE IS BORN OF THE FLAME
VENUS OF ASTORIA VENUS OF ASTORIA

WHEN I FIRST SAW HER SHE WAS UP ON A STAGE
WITH THAT LIGHT IN HER EYES AND HER HAIR ABLAZE
SHE COULDN’T SEE ME THERE, BUT SHE COULD FEEL MY STARE

SHE IS KNOWN BY MANY NAMES
SHE IS BORN OF THE FLAMES
VENUS OF ASTORIA VENUS OF ASTORIA

Bridge:
SHE IS SO GLORIOUS, A MODERN DAY QUEEN VICTORIA
VENUS OF ASTORIA VENUS OF ASTORIA

YEAH YOU MIGHT SEE HER, IN THE STREETS OF QUEENS
YOU MIGHT SEE HER IN THOSE SKIN TIGHT JEANS,
GOT THEM GREEN, GREEN EYES YOU CAN’T DENY
GOT THAT AUBURN HAIR, DON’T YOU WISH YOU WERE THERE?
