Headless body in a topless bar.
Warring clans in lowered cars.
A buck is still a buck in Shanghai
And a buck is all you earn.

A great night for all concerned.
Steel fingers play a deadly song.
Whole lotta Shakespeare going on and on and on.

It's all happening downtown.
You painted daughters of the Tong underground
Don't mess around.

Welcome to China Town.
Well, you're in our town now.
Welcome to China Town.

Heroes aren't born, they're cornered
And this corner is where we write the story.
Two tribes warring
Downtown after hours.
The best to you each morning.

Can't survive and think to win.
Drugged into sin.
Next episode begins and begins and begins and begins.

It's all happening downtown.
You painted daughters of the Tong underground
Don't mess around.

Welcome to China Town.
Well, you're in our town now.
Welcome to China Town.

It's all happening downtown.

Welcome to my town, my town, my town!

(Solo)

It's all happening downtown.
You painted daughters of the Tong underground
Don't mess around.

Welcome to China Town.
Well, you're in our town now.
Welcome to China Town.

Welcome to my town, my town, my town!

    This song means to me that you can get tickets to a lot of venues for the vh tour for in the $30s, but the cocks at mohegan sun are phucking you for $127 minimum. Cunts.
