Oriental Beat

This song is by Hanoi Rocks and appears on the album Oriental Beat (1982).

I'm gonna take a holiday, be somewhere far away
I won't be back for a while, for a long, long time
I wanna get away from the west to the place that I like best
And where the nites are long and the girls are pretty

I'm-a-going to rock till I drop, around the clock
Ain't never ever gonna stop
Gonna send you a postcard from Hanoi
I won't be comin' back so beware my babe
I am ten thousand miles away

Chinese girls make me happy, it's enough if I tell 'em I'm not from the USA
And they believe every word I say
Hanoi Rocks every mornin', at night I fall asleep to the smell of romance
As I see my geisha-girl dance

'Round and 'round the world goes around
I used to believe I was such a happy guy
Now I've found my place on earth
Leaving for Europe just can't be worth
Baby, baby, won't you take my hand
To Aikido garden well, you understand
Propaganda surrounds us but never mind what they say
I ain't going back home, I ain't going back home

Chinese guys make me heavy, it's enough if I tell 'em
I'm not from the USA, and they believe every word I say
Here is no holiday 'cause holiday is everyday
And let me tell you the truth:"if I'd leave I'd be a fool!"
