[INTRO]
[VERSE]
Am
Bangkok, Oriental setting
 Am
And the city don't know that the city is getting
Am
The creme de la creme of the chess world in a
Am                                 Dm
Show with everything but Yul Brynner
Am
Time flies -- doesn't seem a minute
Am
Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
Am
All change -- don't you know that when you
Am                                      Dm
Play at this level there's no ordinary venue
Dm
It's Iceland -- or the Philippines -- or Hastings -- or -- or this place!

[CHORUS]
 Am           F                C             Am
One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
 Am            Dm               G          Am
The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
Am             F             C       Am
You'll find a god in every golden cloister
Am              Dm           G         Am
And if you're lucky then the god's a she
Am              Dm          G      Am
I can feel an angel sliding up to me

[VERSE]
Am
One town's very like another
Am
When your head's down over your pieces, brother
Am
It's a drag, it's a bore, it's really such a pity
Am
To be looking at the board, not looking at the city
Dm
Whaddya mean? Ya seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town --
Am
Tea, girls, warm and sweet
Am
Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite
Am
Get Thai'd! You're talking to a tourist
Am                               Dm
Whose every move's among the purest
Dm                                         Am
I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine

[CHORUS]
Am               F             C        Am
One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Am           Dm              G     Am
Not much between despair and ecstasy
Am             F               C          Am
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Am              Dm               G   Am
Can't be too careful with your company
Am             Dm             G      Am
I can feel the devil walking next to me

[VERSE]
Am
Siam's gonna be the witness
Am
To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
Am
This grips me more than would a
Am
Muddy old river or reclining Buddha
         Dm
And thank God I'm only watching the game -- controlling it --
Dm
I don't see you guys rating
Am
The kind of mate I'm contemplating
Am
I'd let you watch, I would invite you
Am
But the queens we use would not excite you
Am                              Dm
So you better go back to your bars, your temples, your massage parlours --

[CHORUS]
      Bm       G               D          Bm
One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
Bm              Em              A            Bm
The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
  Bm           G              D      Bm
You'll find a god in every golden cloister
Bm          Em              A   Bm
A little flesh, a little history
 Bm            Em           A     Bm
I can feel an angel sliding up to me
Bm              G              D         Bm
One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Bm          Em                 A  Bm
Not much between despair and ecstasy
Bm            G                 D         Bm
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Bm             Em              A     Bm
Can't be too careful with your company
Bm
I can feel the devil walking next to me
