"Pachinko" as written by and Jeremy Max Finer....
I'm walking down Roppongi
The night is hot and smoggy
I drink a little coffee
A sake and a beer
I run into a ginja man
He speaks but I don't understand
He grins at me and takes my hand
And whispers in my ear

I play deji pachi
I play deji pachi
I play deji pachi
In my pachinko dream
I go uchi domi
I go uchi domi
I go uchi domi
In my pachinko dream

My senses all asunder
I stand and stare in wonder
There's bright light and there's thunder
In pachinko land

Well versed in the way of zen
My pockets lined full of yen
I walk the aisle and back again
And sit at domo's hand

I play deji pachi
I play deji pachi
I play deji pachi
In my pachinko dream
I go uchi domi
I go uchi domi
I go uchi domi
In my pachinko dream

I'm on the lexus fever
My hand tight on the lever
I'm shrieking like a diva
Staring in a trance

Turn the handle to the right
A stream of silver balls in flight
It screams and howls a blaze of light
The earth moves below me
I'm laughing tears of sheer delight
As i go uchi domi

I play deji pachi
I play deji pachi
I play deji pachi
In my pachinko dream
I go uchi domi
I go uchi domi
I go uchi domi
In my pachinko dream

    General CommentThis is referring to the Japanese pinball/slot machine hybrid-like game Pachinko. Deji Pachi is a variation of it, and I'm guessing Uchi Domi is like getting a 'Jackpot." Great, song btw. Uh... yeah.

    General CommentAll I can say is, "Why, God?"

    Don't get me wrong, the pogues kick ass. But an Irish dude with bad teeth singing in Japanese just seems so... blasphemous.

    General CommentDoesn't really matter, this song was written by Jem Finer and sung by Spider Stacy- Waiting for Herb is the first non-Shane album.
