Hong Kong Blues

This song is by Les Colocs and appears on the album Atrocetomique (1995).

It's the story of an unfortumate colored man
Who got busted in old hong kong

He got 20 years privilege taken away
From him when he banged the old budha gong

Now he's playinf the piano
Just to raise the price of a ticket to the land of the face,
Says his home the rice but really it's tennessee

That's why he says
I need someone to love me
Need somebody to carry me
Home to sanfrancisco,
And bury me body there
I need someone to lend me
A fifty dollar bill and then I'll leave hong kong
Far behind me for hapiness once again
