One Night In Bangkok Lyrics 

One Night In Bangkok Song Lyrics


MIKE TYSON:
Bangkok, Oriental setting
And 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, ya know?

Time flies -- doesn't seem a minute since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
All change -- don't you know when you play at this level there's no ordinary venue

It's Iceland -- or the Philippines -- or Hastings -- or -- or this place!

CHORUS:
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
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

BACKING VOCALISTS:
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

MIKE TYSON:
Whaddya mean? Ya seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town --

BACKING VOCALISTS:
Tea, girls, warm and sweet
Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite

MIKE TYSON:
Get Thai'd! You're talking to a tourist
whose every move's among the purest
I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine

CHORUS 2:
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 kind of queens we use, they just won't excite you

So you better go back to your bars, your temples, your massage
parlors -- cause we're not having it!

CHORUS 3:
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

[Thanks to Katy for lyrics]
