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
