Oh the other day in Chinatown
A place you all know well
I was taking in the action all around
There was people rushing everywhere
With things to buy and sell
There was taxis looking for someone to run down
I was studying the walkmans in a special discount store
When I saw her walking by
Oh, she was unbelievably beautiful
And I'd love the things she wore
So there and then up to her I did fly

We could go for a walk
We could maybe stay in
We could have a good talk
But then again
I'd love to just take you for a walk down Broadway
Or any aul' way
Just yourself and meself, ah go on!

She says "I come from China"
I says "I'm from Ireland"
And "Isn't this a fine small world"
So we went down to the village
And we'd been walking hand in hand
Admiring all the things I couldn't afford

We could go for a walk
We could maybe stay in
We could have a good talk
But then again
I'd love to just give you one small kiss
Just a little one, ah go on!

Oh well, she brought me back to her place
Just to drink a cup of tea
She brought me in and made me feel at home
It was a tiny room she lived in with another family
But they were out and we were all alone

We could go for a walk
We could maybe stay in
We could have a good talk
But then again
I suppose we could get nice and toasty
Watch some tv, see what happens, ah go on!

Well, I woke up on the sidewalk
There was no one there at all
She must have gone with Luka left behind
And when I turned around to look for her
She couldn't hear me call
So the whole affair was only in me mind
Ah...

We could go for a walk
We could maybe stay in
We could have a good talk
But then again...
