    Lyrics »

I´m adrift on a sea of mystery
I´m sailin´ round the Cape Unknown
But that China girl is waitin´ there
So I know where I got to go

Oh China, I can hear you call

You see I really don´t have the choices
I´m a prisoner of those Oriental eyes
So I pretend to chart my courses
But I´m dreamin´ of those China nights

Oh China, I can hear you call

Oh China, Oh China, Oh China, oh yeah
Those Oriental eyes are such a mystery
Yeah they are
China calls again

You see now long, long ago
I once had the power to levitate the world
With just my will
Well I thought that it was gone
How could I be so wrong
I belong to China now

Oh China, I can hear you call
