Bury a jar of shao-sing

When the girl is born

Surely you know the wine will age

Till shes fully grown

Dont fly into the night

Soon enough the world will end

While the lantern is right


I could find a good time girl in chinatown


Dancing in my shoes

See the eastern ladies walking chinatown


Chain me down


Maybe ill drink your jasmine tea

Then ill hurry home

Surely you know the likes of me

Should be left alone

Why they like a me for

Soon enough the world will end

If I answer the door


Look at the tall pagoda through

Through your window pane

Watching it by your dragon night

On a cocoa day

Youll discover the white

Orchids in my humble moon

While the lantern is right
