Soledad Miranda

This is a Petomane about, fairly obviously, Soledad Miranda, early muse of Jess Franco and star of such films as "Vampyros Lesbos" and "The Devil came from Akasava" (both excellent). She died in a car crash tragically early and was hypnotically beautiful. Less obviously this song is about my wife: the most astonishing woman I have ever met in pretty much every way.

Soledad Miranda

Soledad is back,
Eyes of black,
All "Death and the Maiden",
But which is she?
A witch is she, for sure,
Soledad attracts,
Snipe attacks,
As she walks through the restaurant,
They carp and spit,
She doesn't hear at all,
She's all alone,

Anybody else,
Would have felt,
Those poison darts falling,
But Miss Miranda,
Understands the world,
Soledad's detached,
What's the catch?
She's a dead woman walking,
This mortal coil,
Can't hope to spoil her day,
She's not here to stay,
