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

Little China Girl,
Your mine
A swastika I see
Oh, I’m just fine
Your an obsession
Little China Girl
I live for you
Without you
Don’t know what I’d do
You drive me to the edge
I want to jump the ledge
At times for you
Little China Girl
Thoughts swirl
when I think of you
You know it, too
is this love I ask
Little China Girl
feels like a daunting task
Your the oyster with a pearl
my little china girl

East meets West with lips pressed
no other words need be said
Beauty defined in closed minds,
those intentions spell dread
If we all looked the same,
desire would surely be dead
When we delight in passion
think not just of the bed
My China girl’s eyes are hungry
With my heart, she’ll be fed
Division of cultures be damned
These two souls are wed.

It’s not easy…
Years of frustration.
Years of torture of body and mind.
I’m just a little China girl who would like to love for the first time.
I’m forced to give pleasure.
Soul captivity.
Cage of feelings.
Will you be the next man who will just give me a kiss on the forehead?

No more excuses
no more lies
Baby just shut your mouth
you say you love me
but you keep
chipping cracks
out of my heart
I wish you’d stop
messing with me
I can’t
I’m leaving
I’m a wreck
saw stars crashing
heart so fragile
a little China girl

You broke me

Days have come and gone
since the night I thought
I’d lost this china doll.
She walked with me
within the shores of
our emotion embraced,
slipping, lost within
her steepening thoughts.
I reached for her as the
tide played us like sand,
fracturing the moment,
instead of my soul.
