Lyrics
Walking on the Chinese
Walking on the Chinese Wall
Watching for the coins to
Watching for the coins to fall

b___erfly spread your painted wings
For an answer from the Ching
By the stream stretching in the rocks
Tiger on the mountain top
Walking on the Chinese Wall
Watching for the coins to fall

Now the sun is rising in the east
Looking for my golden fleece
Ivory skin, scarlet color deep
Lips that burn but do not speak

Three misty nights waiting by the shore
Maybe that my lover comes no more
Red chamber dream from the sky above
Ancient tales of hidden Chinese love

Refrain:
On the Chinese Wall
Watching for the coins to fall

Blue-red silk burning on my chest
Go to sleep but not to rest
Stepping stones on the yellow sea
Dreaming she'll be there for me

Come down the clouds to the sea of flames
From the mountain hear the cry of pain
Red chamber dream from the sky above
Ancient tales of hidden Chinese love

(Refrain 2x)

On the Chinese Wall -
b___erfly, spread your wings
For an answer from the Ching
Watching for the coins to fall -
Blue-red silk on my chest
Go to sleep but not to rest
Oh no
Walking on the Chinese Wall - walking on the Chinese Wall -
Walking on the Chinese Wall - watching for the coins to fall
