On The Way To Mandalay

(She said:)

8 long years I値l been waiting

8 long years heart and soul

Moths in the wedding veil

Wont put me off a tiny little bit

and I知 the right one

and I値l get you in the end

 

At the age of single score and trio

He hit the streets of crazy mazy Tokyo

Was a champagne Charlie supernova

In Mogambos singing Barry Manilow

 

Then he met his Hawaiian sweetheart

Over glances in the office cubicle

They fell in love checking year end tax forms

Sending kisses over some dodgy bankers bills

 

And she said:

8 long years I値l be waiting

8 long years heart and soul

Moths in the wedding veil

Wont put me off a tiny little bit

Cos I知 tough one oh yeah

And I知 a smart one oh yeah

And I知 the right one oh yeah

And I値l get you in the end

 

He did a roly poly in a jump suit

Then a conga down the Bangla Road

Ran a marathon on only one foot

A gypsy woman read his palm and he was told:

 

(She said)

8 long years she痴 been waiting

8 long years heart and soul

Moths in the wedding veil

Didn't put her off a tiny little bit

Cos she痴 tough one oh yeah

And she痴 sweet one oh yeah

And she痴 the right one

Time to go to Mandalay

 

And we sang:

Aloha Aloha Las Vegas

Aloha Aloha London Town

Moths in the wedding veil

Didn't put her off a tiny little bit

Sure gonna be top one - oh yeah

Aint Gonna be no shotgun - oh nooo

Because you picked the right one, my friend

On the way to Mandalay

Yeah you picked the right one, dear friend

On the way to Mandalay

 

 

Dedicated to Brian & Kris Doyle,

Las Vegas, December 2009
