    Bangkok, oriental setting
    And the city don't know that the city is getting
    The creme de la creme of the chess world
    In a show with everything but Yul Brynner
    Time flies, doesn't seem a minute
    Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
    All change, don't you know
    That when you play at this level there's no ordinary venue
    It's Iceland or the Philippines or Hastings
    Or, or this place

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

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

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

    Siam's gonna be the witness
    To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
    This grips me more than would
    A muddy old river or reclining Buddha
    Thank God I'm only watching the game, controlling it
    I don't see you guys rating
    The kind of mate I'm contemplating
    I'd let you watch, I would invite you
    But the queens we use would not excite you
    So you better go back to your bars, your temples
    Your massage parlors

    One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
    The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
    You'll find a God in every golden cloister
    A little flesh, a little history
    I can feel an angel sliding up to me

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