One Night In Bangkok

Bangkok, ori­en­tal city
But the city don’t know what the city is get­ting
The creme de la creme of the chess world
In a show with every­thing but Yul Bryn­ner

Time flies, doesn’t seem a minute
Since the Tyrolean spa had the chess boys in it
All change, 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 slid­ing 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
When you’re look­ing at the board
Not look­ing at the city

What­taya mean?!
You’ve seen one crowd­ed pol­lut­ed stink­ing town

Tea, girls, 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 going to be the wit­ness
To the ulti­mate test of cere­bral fit­ness
This grips me more than would a mud­dy ol’ riv­er or reclin­ing Bud­dha
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 let you’d 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 slid­ing 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
