Hong Kong Garden
by Siouxsie and the Banshees

Harmful elements in the air
Symbols clashing everywhere
Reaps the fields of rice and reeds
While the population feeds
Junk floats on polluted water
An old custom to sell your daughter
Would you like number twenty three?
Leave your yens on the counter please

Ho-oh, ho-oh-oh-oh
Hong Kong Garden

Ho-oh, ho-oh-oh-oh
Hong Kong Garden

Oh oh, oh oh

Tourists swarm to see your face
Confucius has a puzzling grace
Disoriented you enter in
Unleashing scent of wild jasmine

Slanted eyes meet a new sunrise
A race of bodies small in size
Chicken Chow Mein and Chop Suey
Hong Kong Garden takeaway

La la la, la la la la la

Ho-oh, ho-oh-oh-oh
Hong Kong Garden

Ho-oh, ho-oh-oh-oh

I'm 37 years old, been listening to music all my life, and I don't know if I've ever heard a better song

sadgirlfran

i feel the same way, my parents loved her music and they passed their music taste to their 15 year old daughter (:

Geraldine Wunderlich

I wish there were more people like you around...

R4- P17

the best song about racism youll ever hear, its about English skinheads being a nuisance in a Chinese restaurant based on what siousixie witnessed herself when she would frequent the hong kog garden take away restaurant in chiselhurst south east London.

It's a pretty good song but there are lots of better ones

DARK GLOBE

good taste

Baby Cakes

Harmful elements in the air
Cymbals crashing everywhere
Reap the fields of rice and reeds
While the population feeds

Junk floats on polluted water
An old custom to sell your daughter
Would you like number 23
Leave your yens on the counter please
Hong Kong garden

Tourists swarm to see your face
Confucius has a puzzling grace
Disoriented you enter in
Unleashing scent of wild jasmine

Slanted eyes meet a new sunrise
A race of bodies small in size
Chicken Chow Mein and Chop Suey
Hong Kong garden takeaway
Hong Kong garden

Dalek Boi

Hong Kong garden takeaway. Allegory of infanticide of girls.

Scumbag Eosapien

The Anubi Lol... no, dude. Like the other guy said, it's a parody of skinheads. For fucks sake, you're reading way too into this

Mana

@The Anubi Well that's obviously bullshit...Hong Kong was under British rule when this song was written
