Marylebone’ explores the depths of love on the London Tube - (She's a) Self-Made Man is a story played out in the penthouse heights of Manhattan. The song follows the progress up the corporate ladder of Lisa Farrow, Brit working-girl turned boardroom diva, who swaps council estate for real-estate…



She moved from Leyton
'cos it lost the appeal
She's relocating to estate that is real
That little bijoux in Manhattan's a steal
Throws in a kilo just to sweeten the deal

She's a self-made man
She's a self-made man

She raises dust with a banker from Rio
He's on the cusp but she'd prefer a Leo
She's looking out for an alpha romeo
To play some doubles or perhaps just a trio

She's a self-made man
She's a self-made man

She's Daddy's daughter
He took them all in
He made a fortune
Savvy offshoring
Her big supporter
Bought her a Breitling
Didn't she oughta
Oughta be more like him?

She's tired of Necker,
now she goes European
The air is better and it's easier skiing
Puts in an offer on a sanatorium
She's sending Legal to Geneva to see 'em

She's a self-made man
She's a self-made man
She's a self-made man
She's a self-made man

Smarter than midi
Part of the city
She's a self-made man

Sweeter than Sugar
Hard as a Luger
She's a self-made man

Small residences
All on expenses
She's a self-made man

Hotter than Ryan
in a suit and a tie, and
She's a self-made man
