One Night in Bangkok Lyrics

One Night in Bangkok (曼谷一夜) - 80s Chartstarz/80s Greatest Hits/80's Pop Band

Written by:Benny Goran Bror Andersson/Bjoern K. Ulvaeus/Tim Rice

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble

 

Not much between despair and ecstasy

 

One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble

 

Can't be too careful with your company

 

I can feel the Devil walking next to me

 

Bangkok

Oriental setting

And the city don't know what the city is getting

The creme de la creme of the chess world

In a show with everything but Yul Brynner

 

Time flies doesn't seem a minute

Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it

 

All change don't you know that when you

Play at this level there's no ordinary venue

 

It's Iceland or the Philippines

Or Hastings or or this place

 

One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster

 

The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free

 

You'll find a God in every golden cloister

 

And if you're lucky then the God's a she

 

I can feel an angel sliding up to me

One town's very like another

When your head's down over your pieces brother

It's a drag it's a bore it's really such a pity

To be looking at the board not looking at the city

Whaddya mean

 

Ya seen one crowded polluted stinking town

Tea girls warm and sweet warm sweet

Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham Suite

 

Get Thai'd you're talking to a tourist

Whose every move's among the purest

 

I get my kicks above the waistline sunshine

 

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble

 

Not much between despair and ecstasy

 

One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble

 

Can't be too careful with your company

 

I can feel the Devil walking next to me

 

Siam's gonna be the witness

To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness

This grips me more than would

A muddy old river or Reclining Buddha

 

Thank God I'm only watching the game controlling it

 

I don't see you guys rating

The kind of mate I'm contemplating

I'd let you watch I would invite you

But the queens we use would not excite you

 

So you better go back to your bars your temples

Your massage parlors

 

One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster

 

The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free

 

You'll find a God in every golden cloister

 

A little flesh a little history

 

I can feel an angel sliding up to me

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble

 

Not much between despair and ecstasy

 

One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble

 

Can't be too careful with your company

 

I can feel the Devil walking next to me
