Looking over Hong Kong harbor
Throw a shrimp in yellow wine
Eat it when it ceases moving
Just before is fine too

There's an ancient Chinese saying
Always seems to slip my mind
Does it really die with honor
Does it really matter

It's a big world
It's a big world, so much to see

Sitting on a beach in Bali
Tried to reach and grab a cloud
Looked so much like cotton candy
And I'm feeling God-like

Could it be just what I'm eating
Only mushrooms after all
And with juice of avocado
I should live forever

It's a big world
It's a big world, so much to do

Sitting on the floor in Kyoto
Marvel at the latest catch
Eat it soon as you are able
Quick before they cook it

There's an eyeball staring at me
And I know I've met my match
Do I eat or am I eaten
It's a new adventure

It's a big world, so much to do
It's a big world, so much to see

From the Leningradsky Prospekt
On the road to Mandalay
There's a new intoxication
Hits you just as you're leaving

Caf sur les Champs Elyses
Baklava in Istanbul
Smoke a pipe in Casablanca
Question all you believe in

It's a big world, so much to see
It's a big world, so much to do
And plenty of room for me and you
