"Tokyo Nights" as written by and Fernando Von Arb Juerg Naegeli....
Last night when I was laying in my bed
Had a dream of a flag in white & red
Swiss cross turned into the japan dot
A yellow girl appeared and made me hot

She took me to her place - a Geisha house
There was tea rice-booze & ceremony
I got undressed she had me washed
I felt her body and I was lost

Tokyo nights hot burning lights
Tokyo nights you took my mind away
Made me obsessed by loving fights

Soon I remembered I stayed in a dream
And I could make a try to change the scene
The geisha girl was just too hot for me
I tried to wake up unsuccessfully

And even as the big alarm-clock rang
Outside my window the first blackbird sang
My yellow girlfriend didn't leave my head
Got to stay forever in her bed

Tokyo nights hot burning lights
Tokyo nights you took my mind away
I'm in the spell of your delights

    General CommentI guess this is the end result when English isn't your first language, and there's a bit of German in the mix (they're Swiss). Swiss clocks turn into Japan dots, there's geisha houses, yellow girlfriends and rice-booze too. Fucking high-end stuff, this, but it still manages to look like Mensa material alongside a Herman Rarebell lyric.

    And the music pretty much reflects Krokus' approach to music, i.e. let's take a chunk of Hotel California and write a song around it. Which was a bit clever considering that the rest of the time they spent in the studio was spent reconstituting AC/DC songs.

    They cracked America for a short period which I couldn't understand until I realised European metal acts usuaally had to dumb down for the American market. I don't think Krokus were dumb, far from it, they like the Scorpions realised the cash was in the lowest common denominator end of the market and why bother attempting to write your own stuff when you could steal it. Nothing new in that except they made a career out of it.

    By the way it wasn't off the turntable when I was 15. I loved it. 8-)
