(Bryan Ferry)
Intro: D#    G#    F  Bb  D#  F Bb |x2

My girl Friday she no square
She like lotus blossom in her hair
Be-bop records and something new
Sometimes borrowed but she's never blue
    G#  F     Bb    D#
Oh no,   not Tokyo Joe

Way past midnight, she not home
She cut the ice down the Danger Zone
Water-tight dresses, she don't care
A trifle risque, a tart, no sir
Oh no, sounds like Tokyo Joe

D#  G#  D#  G#  D#  B  Bb    D#  G#  D#  G#  D#  B  Bb

     C#           F#       D#  G#
    Geisha girl show you she adore you
      C#   F#    D#       G#
    Two oriental eyes implore you
     D#          G#
    Femme fatale or ingenue?
     C#       F#       D#        G#
    She very cunning, fiendish clever
     C#          F#     D#   G#      D# (as intro)
    Geisha girl suffer many times a fool
    Sayonara moon  
         F                   Bb                 D#       Bb
    When all the world's a stage, oh where are you?

Tokyo Rose on the radio
Or Diz 'n Bird puttin' on the moan?
Tappin' out telexes to Tupelo
Dear John, doh ra me fah so
Let's go, call for Tokyo Joe

Walkin' tall down the Danger Zone
She hokey-kokey till the cows come home
Big shot - from the hip - neon cool
Say, when you've been around, what's left to do?
Don't know? Ask Tokyo Joe

So inscrutable her reply
"Ask no question and me tell no lie"
GI boys howlin' out for more
VIP'S purrin' "je t'adore"
Ah so, that's Tokyo Joe
