One Night in Bangkok

Bangkok, Oriental Setting
But the city don't know what the city is getting
The crème de la crème of the chess world
In a show with everything but Yul Brynner
 
Time flies – doesn't seem a minute
since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
All changed, don't you know that when you
Play at this level there's no ordinary venue
 
It's Iceland, or the Philippines, or Hastings
Or …
Or this place!
 
One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
The bars are temples but their pearls ain't free
You'll find a god in every golden cloister
And if you're lucky, then the god's a she
I can feel an angel slidin' up to me
 
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
 
Whattaya mean?!
You've seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town
 
Tea girls, warm and sweet (warm, 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 the 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
 
But 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 their pearls ain't free
You'll find a god in every golden cloister
A little flesh, a little history
I can feel an angel slidin' up to me
 
One night in Bangkok makes the 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

pls correct:

>"since the Tirolean spa had the chess boards in it" =
since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it

>"T-girls, warm and sweet [sweet]" =
Tea girls, warm and sweet (warm, sweet)

pls add:
