Oh, I was walking down the street
When a man came up to me
And said, Don't I know you?
And I said, Well, you might do
But the thing is, ooh, the thing is
I don't know you

Now I was driving in my car
And I had not gone very far
When from out of nowhere
I thought I saw a big bear
But the thing is, ooh, the thing is
No bear was there

Did somebody here just mention Hong Kong?
(Thought so)
Isn't that the place where Suzi Wong's from?
(Correct)

I saw the film and did you like it?
(Think so)
Well, to be honest I didn't mind it

Now I was sitting back in my chair
When a man came on the air
And said, Well, hello there
And, I said, Well, hello there"

But the thing is
(But the thing is)
Ooh, the thing is
(Ooh, the thing is)

I don't have a radio, I don't have a radio
But I've got a sister in Crewe
I don't have a radio, I don't have a radio
And I've got a brother there, too, do you?

That's all for now but before you turn to the other side
You can go out with a taste of the music I'll provide
There are songs that I've written recently
Like 'It Will Be Done', 'Thy Will Become'
Not this or that or thee

But something far more mature like Victor E
Some that were written previously
Why not hear me?
