2. In the song 'I'm Cold' of what is Robert's body made?

Answer: Fire

'My body may be made of fire, but my soul is made of ice. I'm me. I'm cold. I'm told. I'd love to love you girl, but my body has just been sold!'. Released in November 1979 in a 7'' with 'Jumping Someone Else's Train'.
3. In which song is somebody '...waving with the last vanilla smile...'?
