China Girl
David Bowie Lyrics


Oh, oh, oh, little China girl
Oh, oh, oh, little China girl

I could escape this feeling, with my China girl
I feel a wreck without my, little China girl
I hear her heart beating, loud as thunder
Saw they stars crashing
I'm a mess without my, little China girl
Wake up mornings where's my, little China girl
I hear her heart's beating, loud as thunder
Saw they stars crashing down
I feel a-tragic like I'm Marlon Brando
When I look at my China girl
I could pretend that nothing really meant too much
When I look at my China girl
I stumble into town just like a sacred cow
Visions of swastikas in my head
Plans for everyone
It's in the whites of my eyes
My little China girl
You shouldn't mess with me
I'll ruin everything you are
You know, I'll give you television
I'll give you eyes of blue
I'll give you men's who want to rule the world
And when I get excited
My little China girl says
Oh baby, just you shut your mouth
She says, sh-sh-shhh
She says, sh-sh-shhh
She says
She says
And when I get excited
My little China girl says
Oh baby, just you shut your mouth
And when I get excited
My little China girl says
Oh baby, just you shut your mouth
She says, sh-sh-shhh
She says

Oh, oh, oh, little China girl
Oh, oh, oh, little China girl
Oh, oh, oh, little China girl
Oh, oh, oh, little China girl

Stan Cobb

We used to cover this and I loved playing the bass on this classic!

David Deacon

Can we do this?

C-Wrong aka S8TANIC TATTOOIST

I always thought his voice SO amazing on that 2nd verse, his voice restrained on the 1st verse but on the 2nd he lets it go, who else here ALSO likes Peter Murphy?

Fred Ball

Nile Rodgers hired Texas blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughn to do the solo and pissed off every session guitarist in NYC.

Dallas Reenberg
