Bangkok, Oriental setting
The creme de la creme of the chess world in a

Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
Play at this level there's no ordinary venue
It's Iceland or the Philippines or Hastings or

The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
And if you're lucky then the god's a she

When your head's down over your pieces, brother
It's a drag, it's a bore, it's really such a pity

Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite
Get Thai'd! You're talking to a tourist
I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine
One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
I can feel the devil walking next to me
Siam's gonna be the witness
This grips me more than would a

The kind of mate I'm contemplating
But the queens we use would not excite you
So you better go back to your bars, your temples, your massage

The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
A little flesh, a little history

Not much between despair and ecstasy
Can't be too careful with your company
