One Night in Bangkok

One town's very like another
When your head's down
Over your pieces, brother
It's a drag, it's a bore
It's really such a pity
To be looking at the board
Not looking at the city
 
Waddaya mean
You seen one crowded
Polluted, stinking town
 
Tea, girls, warm amd sweet
Some are set up in the
Somerset Maugham suite
 
Get Thai'd
You're talking to a tourist
Whose every move's
Among the purest
I get my kicks above
The waistline, sunshine
 
One night in Bangkok
Makes a hard man humble
Not much between
Despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok
And the tough guys tumble
Can't be too careful
With your company
I can feel the devil
Walking next to me
 
Siam's gonna be the witness
To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
This grips me more than would a
Muddy old river or reclining Buddha
 
And thank God I'm only
Watching the game, controlling it
 
I don't see you guys rating
The kind of mate I'm contemplating
I'd let you watch, I would invite you
But the queens we use
Would not excite you
 
So you better go back to your bars
Your temples, your massage parlors
 
One night in Bangkok
And the world's your oyster
The bars are temples
But the pearls ain't free
You'll find a god in
Every golden cloister
A little flesh, a little history
I can feel an angel sliding up to me
 
One night in Bangkok
Makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok
And the tough guys tumble
Can't be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me.
