China Girl - Iggy Pop

Pop/bowie

I could escape this feeling
With my china girl
I'm just a wreck without
My little china girl
I'd hear hearts beating
Loud as thunder
See the stars crashing
I'm a mess without
My chlna girl
Wake up mornings there's
No china girl
I'd hear hearts beating
Loud asthunder
I'd see the stars crashing down
I'd feel tragic
Like I was marlon brando
When I'd look at my china girl
I could pretend that nothing
Really meant too much
When I'd look at my china girl
I'd stumble into town
Just like a sacred cow
Visions of swasticas in my head
And plans for everyone
It's in the white of my eyes
My little china girl
You shouldn't mess with me
I'll ruin everything you are
I'll give you television
I'll give you eyes of blue
I'll give you men who want
To rule the world
And when I get excited
My little china girl says
Oh jimmy just you
Shut your mouth
She says "shhhh... '
