"Chinese Bombs" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
Holy man tiptoed his way across the ganges
The sound of magic music in his ears
Videoed by a bus load of tourists
Shiny shell suits on, and drinking lemonade.

Now, Ive got a funny feeling which I bought mail order
From a man in a tee-pee, California.
He said he once was the great game show performer
Then he blew all his money away,
Blew it all away.

So take me home, don't leave me alone
I'm not that good, but I'm not that bad
No psycho killer, hooligan guerrilla
I dream to riot, oh you should try it
R. e. perot, get gold card soul
My joy of life is on a roll
And well all be the same in the end
Cos then you're on your own
Then you're on your own

Well, we all go happy day glow in the disco
The sound of magic music in our brains
Someone stumbles to the bathroom with the horrors
Says lord, give me time, for Ive jumped into space
I'm in outer space.

So take me home, don't leave me alone
I'm not that good, but Im not that bad
No psycho killer, hooligan guerrilla
I dream to riot, oh you should try it
R. e. perot, get gold card soul
My joy of life is on a roll
And well all be the same in the end
Cos then you're on your own
Then you're on your own

So take me home, don't leave me alone
I'm not that good, but I'm not that bad
No psycho killer, hooligan guerrilla
I dream to riot, oh you should try it
R. e. perot, get gold card soul
My joy of life is on a roll
And well all be the same in the end
Cos then you're on your own

Then you're on your own

    General Commenta) This song is great. I always imagined a Bruce Lee fighting sequence when I listened to this song.

    b) I'm pretty sure that it's not "Where people are strong" at the end of the 1st verse. I think it's "Where justice is done."

    c) You entirely missed the "Where justice is done." line in the second verse.

    General CommentI thought it was a piss-take that they did supremely well. i.e. Song 2 sending up grunge, Girls and Boys clubbing

    General CommentI know this song is quite an oddity on their self-titled album, but I find it to be simply hilarious. It seems obvious to me that they're trying to mock a genre with this song, and not trying to branch out with their sound.

    General CommentWtf.. this song rocks! in my oppinion. And I don't think they're triying to "mock a genre" -- seriously, they're just making a punk song.

    General CommentBruce Lee man! Lol.

    Yeah, there's nothing wrong with a punk song... They've always been known to branch out from their main genre.

    Hell, when Leisure came out, who woulda guessed they'd make a pop/techno song like Girls And Boys?

    This song is awesome. I also imagined Bruce Lee fighting in this lol.

    But, Chuck Norris owns Bruce.

    When Chuck Norris does a push up, he doesn't push himself up, he pushes the Earth down.

    They never found any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq... That's because Chuck Norris lives in Oklahoma.

    Chuck Norris is the reason Waldo is hiding

    Lol, that's enough Chuck Norris jokes :]

    Great song!

    General CommentNo, Bruce Lee is much better than Chuck Norris. He's so awesome he doesn't need to hide behind bad jokes :P
