Too fast to live
And too young to die
One stolen kiss, babe
A certain smile

We never close, babe
We dance all night
I’m lost inside, babe
Your painted smile

The name of the place
The name of the place

You’ll never know, babe
The state I’m in
It’s a plastic world, babe
No tiger skin

Don’t talk to me
Your perfume sighs
I’m lost inside, babe
Your painted smile

Your Painted Smile by Bryan Ferry

I ran into Ozzy Osbourne after a meeting in LA. I said,“You’re Ozzy, right?” He said,“No … John!” And we both laughed. I asked him if I he had a moment. He said sure. I said,“I read an interview where your wife Sharon said the last person she would ever invite to dinner would be Bryan Ferry, do you know why?” He said,“What?” I said,“I read an interview where your wife Sharon said the last person she would ever want to invite to dinner would be Bryan Ferry, do you know why?” He exclaimed,“I haven’t got a bloody clue!” And we both laughed.

All this to say, I still don’t know why Sharon Osbourne doesn’t like Bryan Ferry. I would love to have him over for dinner. What a voice!
