Tokyo Joe Bryan Ferry
Tokyo Joe - Bryan Ferry
[Eb] [Ab] [F] [Bb] [Eb] [Ab] [F]
[Eb]My girl Friday she no square
She like lotus blossom in her hair
Be-bop records and something new
Sometimes borrowed but she's never blue
[Bb] Oh n[Ab]o...[F] not To[Bb]kyo J[Eb]oe
Way past midnight - she not home
She cut the ice down the Danger Zone
Watertight dresses - she don't care
A trifle risqu, a tart, no sir...
Oh no... sounds like Tokyo Joe
[Eb] [F#] [Bb]
G[C#]eisha girl sh[F#]ow you s[Eb]he adore [Ab]you
T[C#]wo ori[F#]ental e[Eb]yes imp[Ab]lore you
Fe[Eb]mme fatal or ing[Ab]enue?
S[C#]he very cu[F#]nning, fie[Eb]ndish cl[Ab]ever
G[C#]eisha girl su[F#]ffer m[Eb]any ti[Ab]mes a f[Eb]ool
When a[F]ll the world's a s[C#]tage, oh where are [Eb]you?[C#] [F]
Tokyo Rose on the radio
Or Diz'n Bird puttin' on the moan
Tappin' our telexes to Tupelo
Dear John, doh ra me fah so?
Let's go... call for Tokyo Joe
Walkin' tall down the Danger Zone
She hokey-kokey till the cows come home
Big shot - from the hip - neon cool
Say, when you've been around, what's left to do?
Don't know? Ask Tokyo Joe
So inscrutable her reply
"Ask no question and me tell no lie"
GI boys howlin' out for more
VIP'S purrin' "je t'adore"...
Ah so... that's Tokyo Joe
