Bryan Ferry — Tokyo Joe lyrics


My girl friday she no square
She like lotus blossom in her hair
Be-bop records and something new
Sometimes borrowed but sheґs never blue
Oh no........not tokyo joe
Way past midnight - she not home
She cut the ice down the danger zone
Water-tight dresses - she donґt care
A trifle risquй, a tart, no sir........
Oh no........sounds like tokyo joe
Geisha girl show you she adore you
Two oriental eyes implore you
Femme fatale or ingenue?
She very cunning, fiendish clever
Geisha girl suffer many times a fool
Sayonara moon
When all the worldґs a stage, oh where are you?
Tokyo rose on the radio
Or diz ґn bird puttinґ on the moan
Tappinґ out telexes to tupelo
Dear john, doh ray me fah so?
Letґs for tokyo joe
Walkinґ tall down the danger zone
She hokey-cokey till the cows come home
Big shot - from the hip - neon cool
Say, when youґve been around, whatґs left to do?
Donґt know? ask tokyo joe
So inscrutable her reply
"ask no question and tell me no lie"
Gi boys howlinґ out for more
Vipґs purrinґ "je tґadore"........
Ah so........thatґs tokyo joe
