Testo della canzone The Man Who Stole A Leopard (Duran Duran), tratta dall'album All You Need Is Now

The Man Who Stole A Leopard - Duran Duran

Do you know where we are?
I'm longing for the dark
Of our nocturnal life
It begins and ends with you
Don't spill my secret

You were once running wild hiding in the morning mist
Game demands I make you mine
I thought that I could resist
But the leopard in you silently preyed on me

I made my way back home
(Did you follow her?)
I handled her with care
(Were you in control?)
So elegant and sleek
(Were you not afraid?)
I need her to be near
(Does she belong to you?)
Don't spill my secret

You were once running wild hiding in the morning mist
Game demands I make you mine
I thought that I could resist
But the leopard in you silently preyed on me

Deserted by my friends
(Don't they understand?)
She so much more than them
(How could they compare?)
So now she's just for me
(No one else can say)
I watch her while she sleeps?
(For sure she dreams of you)
Don't spill my secret

(It's been quite a while)
Since we were last outside
(And do you miss the chase?)
Now that we've both been tamed
(Inside this gilded cage)
Prisoners of our thoughts
(You saved me from myself)
Don't spill my secret
Don't spill my secret

" Today a man was taken from his apartment on the New Jersey
Shore and arrested under suspicion of entrapment of a wild animal.

Police, after forced entry,
Discovered a caged leopard in the building!

The fully grown feline was said to be surprisingly domesticated by
Zoological experts who gave her a thorough
Examination before preparing her for relocation.

A large crowd is gathered outside to watch the beautiful
Creature as a giant cage was
Lowered slowly onto the street by a crane.

From here, the leopard was transferred
Into the back of a truck for the journey ahead.

A thoughtful onlooker said it's extraordinary to think that any human
Being could have lived in such close
Quarters with such a dangerous animal.

Police are saying the captive has simply
Besotted with the creature and barely left her side.

It's alleged that he hunted her in the wild and expertly forged
Documents to facilitate her illegal
Export to the United States of America.

The incident has already created much controversy and is now
Likely to lead to a major international investigation into the
Life of the man who stole a leopard."
