Robyn Hitchcock – Chinese Bones lyrics

Watching Romeo dissolve I was tempted to join him
by the mirror of the lake where the statues unfurled
I had never seen a man so abuse his reflection
as the light shines through your Chinese bones
watching Juliet unrobe I would hasten toward her
but around her feet I sat that her serpent was curled
and her eyeballs had rolled up so her pupils had vanished
and the light shines through your Chinese bones
as the light shines through your Chinese bones

I met an interesting dwarf and I told him a story
as he walked towards the East then the shadow was right
something Shakespeare never said was 'you've got to be kidding'
as the light shines through your Chinese bones
as the light shines through your Chinese bones
the line between us is so thin I might as well be you
and everywhere I've ever been I know you're going to
Chinese bones Chinese Bones
