Christine Keeler
(Riff Regan, Steve Voice)

Christine Keeler walking down the King’s Road 
Her auburn hair looking so cool
Kicking autumn leaves from Chelsea pavements 
I got a feeling she was nobody’s fool

Christine Keeler, cherry red lipstick 
A knowing look, beautiful eyes
Belgravia cocktails then up to Cliveden 
Sitting by the pool spanking Russian spies

Christine Keeler, everybody loved you
But no one warned you about the dark side 
Came to London trying hard to make it 
Dancing in Soho listening to their lies

And they all want you
Pin stripe suits and boys in blue
Through our cold war haze you shone through like the star you still are

Christine Keeler, Marylebone beat girl 
Living in a mews near Regent’s Park 
Had a friend Mandy Rice-Davies
Got up to hanky-panky after dark

Christine Keeler, everybody’s pin-up 
The perfect look in an imperfect world 
Blew a kiss to all the wrong people
Whatever happened to that sweet country girl?

And they all want you
Pin stripe suits and boys in blue
Through our cold war haze you shone through like the star you still are

  Christine Keeler, News of the World girl
  Sold her story for a handful of cash
  Getting in and out of black taxis
  Outside the Bailey - Flash, flash, flash!

Christine Keeler, kicked off the 60s
Looks so good sitting on that chair
She pinned up nicely in our sweaty bedrooms 
Wearing just a smile and long auburn hair
