Mezzanine
Lyrics
(lyrics as recorded)

Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Neither up nor yet down
Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Neither country nor town
Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Half a smile, half a frown
My bright golden mean
Mezzanine.

Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Neither deep sky nor earth
Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Neither plenty nor dearth
Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Half warmth and half worth
Neither lavish nor mean
Mezzanine.

So wry and so riling
Below and beyond
Benign and beguiling
Before and behind
So believed and belied
So beleaguered beside
So betwixt and between
Mezzanine.

So wry and so riling
Below and beyond
Benign and beguiling
Before and behind
So believed and belied
So beleaguered beside
So betwixt and between
Mezzanine.

Mezzanine, Mezzanine,
Neither twist nor yet twine
Mezzanine, Mezzanine,
Not yet missed, not yet mine
Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Half a sigh, half a sign
And it's you that I mean
Mezzanine.




(alternative lyrics for female singer)

Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Neither up nor yet down
Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Neither country nor town
Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Half a smile, half a frown
Such a bright golden mean
Mezzanine.

Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Neither deep sky nor earth
Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Neither plenty nor dearth
Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Half warmth and half worth
Neither lavish nor mean
Mezzanine.

So wry and so riling
Below and beyond
Benign and beguiling
Before and behind
So believed and belied
So beleaguered beside
So betwixt and between
Mezzanine.

So wry and so riling
Below and beyond
Benign and beguiling
Before and behind
So believed and belied
So beleaguered beside
So betwixt and between
Mezzanine.

Mezzanine, Mezzanine,
Neither twist nor yet twine
Mezzanine, Mezzanine,
He's not yours, he's not mine
Mezzanine, Mezzanine
Half a sigh, half a sign
And it's you that I mean
Mezzanine.
