Oh God save our gracious queen, long may she rule over me"
Pull your pants down and dance around completely naked in the middle of China town.
Get arrested, get tested, stripped, whipped, lie detected, to see if you've defected from your senses,
or from China, or from Russia or from here.

One thousand pounds on a flight to pull my English colonial pants down in the middle of china town.
Yeah, but it was worth it.

Can't sleep can't snooze soon the dogs will kill the dues. (?)
Menuit blood will start the ooze. (?)
Goddam the reds I got the blues,
I got the blues, I got the Hong Kong blues,
I got the Hong Kong, Hong Kong blues.
I got the Hong Kong blues.
And come 1997 the reds will be under my futon again.

Pull your pants down and dance around completely naked in the middle of China town.
Get arrested, get tested, stripped, whipped, lie detected, to see if you've defected from your senses,
or from Russia, or from China or from here.

One thousand pounds to pull your pants down in the middle of China town.
Well, yeah, but it was worth it.

Can't sleep can't snooze soon the dogs will kill the dues. (?)
Menuit blood will start the ooze. (?)
Goddam the reds I got the blues I got the blues,
I got the Hong Kong, Hong Kong blues.
I got the Hong Kong blues.
Let me get them before I lose the right to choose the little Hong Kong, Taiwanese Shoes.

This ain't no laughing matter,
no, I don't mean to be funny when I say,
come out from Beijing, get your tea caddy out and play the Hong Kong blues
and together in our Nissan shoes we're going to kick the Ming dynasty into touch,
once and for all, kick it into touch.

Can't sleep can't snooze soon the dogs will kill the dues.
Men with blood will start the ooze.
Goddam the reds I got the blues I got the blues,
I got the Hong Kong, Hong Kong blues.
I got the Hong Kong blues.
And come 1997 the reds will be under my futon again.
