Way To Shanghai

She said she'd wait for my forever in China
I might as well be a space alien in Carolina
And for that privilege you see
These women milk me for my idiocy,

I guess maybe I should go to China
Or just go fishing on the Amazon for an Arapaima
She was a petite little treat to the eyes
That's why I flew all the way to Shanghai,

And now I'm all alone with my memories
Now I'm a fool of the skies and the sea
Do you wonder what happened to me?
Guess I'll just sit and play my ukulele,

There could be no finer fool than I
Is that a meteor falling from the sky?
Chinese ladies are like spices that make you cry
Give a puppet dance on my grave when I die,

She was a pretty little treat to the eyes
That's why I flew all the way to Shanghai in disguise
That's why there's just no finer fool than I
Sometimes I think of her and just let out a sigh,

That's why the Red Guards chase me now
My apologies to Chairman Mao
I wish that I could get to her somehow
Perhaps when monkeys fly from a cat's meow!
