It’s raining. Walking around in Bangkok sucks when it’s raining. The streets smell worse, some areas are slippery, and the mosquitoes come out to play.
Decided to wait out the rain by listening to, and then subsequently looking up the lyrics to One Night In Bangkok. Cliché? Probably, but I don’t care.
I’ve never really paid any attention to the lyrics before, but I think they’re kind of funny now. Full of lot of interesting idioms, that’s for sure.
“One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster. The bars are temples but the pearls ain’t free.”
“I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine.”
“One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble. Can’t be too careful with your company.”
“I’d let you watch, I would invite you. But the queens we use would not excite you.”
