DT Lyrics:





Subject: A red, red scarf...
From: PJ
Date: 19 Jun 99 - 10:47 PM

I'm looking for the words to a song whose chorus begins

She had a red, red scarf around her neck
Her eyes were green
And her hair was black.

I couldn't find anything in DigTrad, or any other lyric searches. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

PJ

SAYONARA

Shane MacGowan

OK, it's time for Sayonara
So long yankee break my heart
Now there's nothing left but sorrow
Even the best friends they must part

I walked into the nearest bar
I sat and gazed across the sea
I wandered lonely on the beach
The waves just whispered misery

She had a red red scarf
Around her neck
Her eyes were green
Her hair was black
She had a red red scarf
Around her neck
Her eyes were green
Her hair was black
Ooh she gave me Mekong Whiskey
Ooh she gave me Hong Kong Flu
Ooh she gave me Mekong Whiskey
Put me on a breeze to Katmandu

(Som-yat-zu, som-yat-zu)

I got new papers in a bordello
With some luckies and my I.D.
My heart was pounding like a hammer
Thai Thai Thai Thai Thai! I am free

She kissed me softly on the lips
She took my hand without a sound
This was our happy ever after
So motherfucker kiss the ground

(Is this the one you wanted, PJ? Shawn McGowan, 1990).
