"Countess from Hong Kong" as written by and John Cale Lou Reed....
Countess from Hong Kong she moves so lightly
Like the summer rain
Every time I see and I think about her
It ends up the same
Walkin' the streets out in Singapore
It was a funny sight
But let me say the countess from Hong Kong
She did everything right

Countess from Hong Kong
Oh, countess from Hong Kong

Countess from Hong Kong she moves so lightly
She's like the summer breeze
And all of the princes they came from India
They fell down on their knees
Silks and satins, what a purple suede
She cut among the trees
Countess from Hong Kong believe me baby
Now you're, ooohhh, like a summer breeze

Oh, countess from Hong Kong
Countess from Hong Kong
