David Bowie ♪ China Girl
“Visions of swastikas in my head, Plans for everyone.”
A weakling in megalomanic gaga.
I could escape this feeling with my China Girl. I feel a wreck without my little China Girl. I hear her heart beating loud as thunder. Saw the stars crashing. I'm a mess without my little China Girl. Wake up mornings where's my little China Girl. I hear her heart's beating loud as thunder. Saw they stars crashing down. I feel a-tragic like I'm Marlon Brando. When I look at my China Girl. I could pretend that nothing really meant too much. When I look at my China Girl. I stumble into town just like a sacred cow. Visions of swastikas in my head. Plans for everyone. It's in the whites of my eyes. My little China Girl, You shouldn't mess with me. I'll ruin everything you are. I'll give you television. I'll give you eyes of blue. I'll give you men who want to rule the world. And when I get excited. My little China Girl says. Oh baby just you shut your mouth. She says … sh-sh-shhh.
