In the cool of the evenin', I don't know the reason
But I long to touch some young tender hearts sometimes
So I go to this party with a bunch of me hardies
They say, "Don't get too cute, don't get too smart"

'Cause these people are crazy, they toot coke and drink wang-foo
Talk in some crazy tongue
There's a slit-eyed lady, sayin', "Don't you be so stupid
I may look old but I'm still good fun, still good fun
Yeah, I'm still good fun, still good fun, yeah, I'm still good fun"

Well, I ain't that choosy, I'll flip-flop with a floozy
If I figure there's no strings attached
But sometimes I lose my feet underneath the back seat
And I have to fly my heart at half mast

Well, now this old bitty, she was smart and she was witty
She really was out of control, you know
It was stumble or fall, I had my back to the wall
I didn't know whether to bet or win, place or show

"Welcome to Chinatown" she said
"I'm gonna lay your body down", she said
"I ain't no queen, but I'm wearin' this crown", she said
"Welcome to Chinatown, welcome to Chinatown"

Well, she shimmered and she shook
What she wanted she took
She shook me like some rickshaw ride
She stuck her fingers down my throat till I almost choked
I thought I'd gone to heaven and died

Well, she took me by the ear
She said, "What do you wanna hear, boy
Hear those crazy old lies?"
I said, "Nothing you can say, girl, can drive me away
Just check my complexion, make sure I'm still alive"

"Welcome to Chinatown" she said
"I'm gonna lay your body down", she said
"I ain't no queen, but I'm wearin' this crown", she said
"Welcome to Chinatown, welcome to Chinatown"

Welcome to Chinatown
Welcome to Chinatown
Welcome to Chinatown
Welcome to Chinatown
