Music and Lyrics // George Wyndham

lyrics

Sleazy expat voyeur,
You rouge rancid raconteur,
Away and alone so far away from your home,

No wife or friends,
Bad delirium tremens,
Nowhere, no-one to call your own,

Glassy-eyed gaze,
Your mind all in a haze,
The hours turn to days,
Because life is so much fun,

Living on the run.

With such delights,
We spend our nights,
Just a simple man, stuck down in his mind’s eye,
IN SHANGHAI!

Drinking whisky galore,
Even now you’re old and poor,
Nowhere and no one to call your own,

The birds they fly,
Against the grain,
We never die,
And we stay the same,
But we be so insecure,

So self-assured.

The birds they fly,
Against the grain,
We never die,
And we stay the same,
But we be so insecure,

So self-assured.
