about

Nicole is an ornithologist with a voyeuristic bent. She goes to the beach to observe sea birds but ends up watching a young couple embracing on the sand.

lyrics

Voyeur in disguise

Nicole looks through binoculars
The sun is shining on the beach
Behind her is a flock of cars
But she is hidden, out of reach
An ageing twitcher, her disguise
She checks for sea birds in the skies
Nicole’s a voyeur in disguise

She is in secret, a voyeur
A people watcher of great skill
A nosy-parker connoisseur
Just searching for a razor-bill.
Such playful, harmless innocence
A cover for her deviance
Nicole’s a voyeur in disguise

She notices a distant knoll
A couple lie there on the sand
The girl embraced within his hold
H strokes her hair with his right hand
Enraptured by this sweet embrace
Nicole displays a blushing face
Nicole’s a voyeur in disguise

It looks like they are making love
It’s more than Nicole bargained for
Transfixed she steams the eye-piece up
She mops her brow then watches more
The man’s on top, the randy goat
He’s got his hands around her throat.
Nicole’s a voyeur in disguise



A family troops across the sand
Dragging deck chairs red and white
They stake their claim, this motley band
Obscuring Nicole’s line of sight
Windbreaks are then hammered in
They shout, they scream they make a din
Nicole gives up, with heavy sighs

She’s in the car and driving home
Imagination running wild
She gives the facts to Sherlock Holmes,
Inspector Morse puts it on File.
A call to France, and Maigret’s in
Her cover story sounds too thin.
Nicole’s a voyeur in disguise

Binoculars are put away,
She settles down to watch TV
A frozen dinner on a tray
No news of murder by the sea
She goes to bed to read her book
Next week she’ll take another look.
Nicole’s a voyeur in disguise
