Lyrics

Ok, it's time for sayonara
So long yankee break my heart
Now there's nothing left but sorrow
Even the best friends they must part

I walked into the nearest bar
I sat and gazed across the sea
I wandered lonely on the beach
The waves just whispered misery
She had a red red scarf
Around her neck
Her eyes were green
Her hair was black

Ooh she gave me mekong whiskey
Ooh she gave me hong kong flu
Ooh she gave me mekong whiskey
Put me on a breeze to katmandu

(som-yat-zu, som-yat-zu)

I got new papers in a bordello
With some luckies and my i.d.
My heart was pounding like a hammer
Thai thai thai thai thai! I am free

She kissed me softly on the lips
She took my hand without a sound
This was our happy ever after
So motherfucker kiss the ground
I've seen those signs a million times
The chill that clouds your eyes
The light that shines black as a coal
Deep down in the mind
And I'm hungry, and I'm dying of thirst
Just suffering from a lover's curse
I'll turn to stone, let the rivers flow,
And wash me to the sea
The curse of love is hanging over me

I've walked the line, stood by your side,
I've kept you company
And all those times you felt like crying,
I've held you close to me
Now someone's put a spell on me,
All my worst dreams are coming true
I'll turn to stone, let the rivers flow,
And wash me to the sea
The curse of love is hanging over me
The curse of love is hanging...
Over me

Around the tent, the storm was raging,
The gypsy's eyes were wild and blazing
Should have listened when she said
You'd slip away from me

The bottle's empty, I've drunk it dry,
And still I feel the pain
Well, all we've had is lost now,
Like teardrops in the rain
The night is long, I'm tired and weary,
But I don't know where this road will lead me,
I'll turn to stone, let the rivers flow,
And wash me to the sea
The curse of love is hanging over me
The curse of love is hanging...
Over me
Now I'd like to tell you what your smile was for
And I loved you from the moment that you walked in that door
And I knew that I'd seen you before
Some other time
Some other place
Some other time
Some other place

Now I'd like to tell you 'bout your pretty face
And you know that you're a gift to the human race
My happiness is that smile on your face
Musta been now
Some other time
Some other place
Some other time
Some other place

When I get out of space with you
And the skies turn purple and the moon is blue
And I know I've been with you before
Some other time
Some other place
Some other time
Some other place
Some other place
Some other time
Some other place
Some other time
Some other place
