"The Green Lady" as written by Michael Geoffrey Jones, Greg Roberts and Don Letts....
A window to the Orient
In a picture frame
I know you are a Lady
Nobody knows your name

Lady from the Orient in a council flat
She never looks me in the eye, she never answers back
If I could buy a ticket, I'd gladly run away
Ride in on the trade wind and marry you someday

Staring at my masterpiece
The boys all read Parade
Chong Sam and red lipstick
Her skin a precious jade

Lady from the Orient in a council flat
She never looks me in the eye, she never answers back
If I could buy a ticket, I'd gladly run away
Ride in on the trade wind and marry you someday

Mass produced the daydream
Or should I pay the rent?
Breakout of the concrete
Set sail for Orient

Lady from the Orient in a council flat
She never looks me in the eye, she never answers back
If I could buy a ticket, I'd gladly run away
Ride in on the trade wind and marry you someday

Dry your eyes Salomé
Mona Lisa too
Lady in the picture frame
My heart belongs too you

Lady from the Orient in a council flat
She never looks me in the eye, she never answers back
If I could buy a ticket, I'd gladly run away
Ride in on the trade wind and marry you someday

Lady from the Orient in a council flat
She never looks me in the eye, she never answers back
If I could buy a ticket, I'd gladly run away
Ride in on the trade wind and marry you someday
