Headless body in a topless bar
Warring clans and lowered cars
A buck is still a buck in Shanghai
And a buck is all you earn
A great night for all concerned
Steel fingers play a deadly song
Whole lotta Shakespeare goin' on and on

It's all happening downtown
You painted daughters of the Tong underground
Don't mess around
Welcome to China town
Well you're in our town now
Welcome to China town

Heroes aren't born
They're cornered
This corner is where we write the story
Two tribes warring
Chinatown after hours
The best to you each morning
Can't survive and think to win
Plugged into sin
The episode begins and begins

Songwriters
ROTH, DAVID LEE / VAN HALEN, EDWARD / VAN HALEN, ALEX / VAN HALEN, WOLFGANG
