I've got a lover back in japan
He's got tatooes
He's my superman
I try to call him up from time to time
We can talk about the weather
Is the weather fine?

And i say break, break
Break away those ties
Break, break.

I've got a lover
Up in outer space
He's been tumbling around
All over the place
I like to call him from time to time
We can talk about heaven...

Break, break
Break away those ties
Break, break...

When the whole world descends on me
I'll be waiting for you...

Got another lover in Timbuktu
Got a name for him
He's my little guru.
When i don't call him he starts to cry
I have to tell him stories just to pacify.

Break, break...
When the whole world descends on me
I'll be waiting for you...

I was bitter when i met you
I was eloquent with rage
Like honey from a poisoned cup
I flowed from stage to stage.
(ooh... sugar baby... sing me a lullaby.)
Japanese baby...
