Amlapura Lyrics

by David Bowie

Hey, hey it's the tall sail on a beach reach for java
Make way for to java watching for boogies
Hey, hey it's a dreaming I would burn you if you should die
Hey, hey I would burn too if you should lie upon that bamboo pyre

I dream of Amlapura
Never saw in all my life a more shining jewel
I dream of Amlapura
Of an ocean or dream of a princess in stone

Hey, hey golden roses around a Raja's mouth
Hey, hey all the dead children buried standing
A flying Dutchman
Smoking gun and spice wind

I dream of Amlapura
Never saw in all my life a more shining jewel
I dream of Amlapura
Of an ocean or dream of a princess in stone

I dream of Amlapura
Of a princess in stone
Hey, hey it's a tall ship
Hey, hey, hey, hey Amlapura
