Spent some time feelin' inferior


Standin' in front of my mirror


Combed my hair in a thousand ways


But I came out lookin' just the same


Daddy said "Son you better see the world


I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to leave


But remember one thing don't lose your head


To a woman that'll spend your bread"


So I got out


Paris was a place you could hide away


If you thought you didn't fit in


French police wouldn't give me no peace


Just claimed I was a nasty person


Down along the Left Bank minding my own


Was knocked down by a human stampede


Got arrested for inciting a peaceful riot


When all I wanted was a cup of tea


I was accused


Down in Rome I wasn't getting enought


Of the things that keep a young man alive


My body stunk but I kept my funk at a time

When I was right out of luckGetting desperate indeed I was


Looking like a tourist attraction


Oh my dear I better get out of here


Before the Vatican don't give no sanction I wasn't running oh no


And on the Peking ferry I was feeling merry


Sailing on my way back here


I fell in love with a slit eyed lady


By the light of an eastern moon


Shanghai Lil never used the pill


She claimed that it just ain't natural


She took me up on deck and bit my neck


People I was glad I found her oh yes so glad


Wait a minute


Well I firmly believe that I didn't need anyone but me


I sincerely thought I was so complete


Look how wrong you can be


The women I've known I wouldn't let tie my shoe


They wouldn't give you the time of day


But the slit eyed lady knocked me off my feet


God I was glad I found her


And if there were words I could tell to you


To help you on the way down the road


Couldn't quote you no Dickens Shelley or Keats


'Cause it's all been said before


Make the best out of the bad just laugh it off


Didn't have to come here anyway


So remember every picture tells a story don't it


Every picture tells a story don't it


Every picture tells a story don't it


Every picture tells a story don't it
