"Masoko Tanga" as written by and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
One, two, one, two, three, four

Oh da la la

Don't ba bose da la lomb ba bay
Ping pong da la zoe da la la low

People know what de lee do da day
Key wo wa di com la day wa da

Co wa da zu ma pu wa all day
See po wa ta na po ba ba

Zoe ka mo wa I've been sleepin' all day
Took a lot of drugs, watch the tide roll out

Day light na no ma do la
Keep the sugar warmed up, hey!

Keyboard is a mo day la
Keyboard is a mo day la
A key word is a mo way la
Key wa wo day wa wo I've been

Kicking a wall baby cos' I'm gay
I broke all ma wa tay lay doe

(ah) people are ghosts. ah my my! go away.
I pissed on my wall or my door

I'm pissed so no wa though I gave my love away
I'll come back though threw a sonar

I pissed on my walk on my ass all day
I stumble back home passed my door

Oh oh oh oh
They all know what
Oh oh oh oh
The mess in my way
Oh oh oh oh
I'm called Mr. Wombat
Oh oh oh oh
Pissed all the day
Oh oh oh oh
Key from my wombat
Oh oh oh oh
He stood in my way
Oh oh oh oh
Key from wild baby
Oh oh oh oh
He took my wah

Ma wa ba wa ta la throw away
To ma ba sue le dah (oh!)

Don't know why my white car won't stay clean
I don't know for what I do?

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh (ow!)

Oh oh oh oh

    General CommentThese lyrics were included with the original Japanese vinyl release of Outlandos D'Amour. The Japanese distributer payed an English speaker to interpret the lyrics, but they are as close to "official" as has been found. The lyrics also contained a footnote warning that the song illustrates the negative effects of drug use.

    General CommentI don't think they are right at all, but they sure are damn funny when you listen to the song and read along!
    So in order to interpret them I took a lot of drugs and watched the tide role out and then I came up with this:
    I think Sting is angry because someone got his white car all dirty so he pissed on their door just like the time I got mad at my girlfriend.
    Hah!

    General CommentFinally, the album closer 'Masoko Tanga' shows that the Police could display great chops in the 'world beat' department from the very very beginning - this style would reach its peak on Zenyatta Mondatta, of course, but 'Masoko Tanga' is certainly no worse than any selected instrumental on that album. Mr Summers plays just a supportive role here - the emphasis is on the rhythm section, but oh what a rhythm section. For some reason, Sting rarely displays his cool bass chops; 'Masoko Tanga' is one of the few moments in the Police catalogue where you can really understand how much the guy is underrated as a bass player. And Stewart Copeland is Stewart Copeland. Hey, does the man have African blood in him?
