Take a journey back in time
Leave the western world behind
Cross the mountains to Peking
Where the paper lanterns gently swing

The Chinese way
Who knows what they know?
The Chinese legend grows
The Chinese way
Who knows what they know?
The Chinese legend grows

My eyes wide open
I feel a breeze
Words softly spoken
In Cantonese

Standing at the master's side
There with patience he confides
Secret knowledge, sacred ways
Pearls of wisdom from the dragon days

I could never lie
For honor I would die
Following the Chinese way
So many years ago hero's ruled the world
(Some died for love)
They were the only ones in a cruel world
(In a cruel world)

I could never lie
For honor I would die
Following the Chinese way

From the mountains to Peking
Where the paper lanterns gently swing

The Chinese way
Who knows what they know?
The Chinese legend grows
The Chinese way
Who knows what they know?
The Chinese legend grows

The Chinese way
Who knows what they know?
The Chinese legend grows
The Chinese way
Who knows what they know?
