We were watching T.V.

Watching T.V.

We were Watching T.V.

Watching T.V.

In Tiananmen Square

Lost my baby there

My yellow rose

In her bloodstained clothes

She was a short order pastry chef

In a Dim Sum dive on the Yangtze tideway

She had shiny hair

She was the daughter of an engineer

Won't you shed a tear

For my yellow rose

My yellow rose

In her bloodstained clothes

She had perfect breasts

She had high hopes

She had almond eyes

She had yellow thighs

She was a student of philosophy

Won't you grieve with me

For my yellow rose

Shed a tear

For her bloodstained clothes

She had shiny hair

She had perfect breasts

She had high hopes

She had almond eyes

She had yellow thighs

She was the daughter of an engineer

So get out your pistols

Get out your stones

Get out your knives

Cut them to the bone

They are the lackeys of the grocer's machine

They built the dark satanic mills

That manufacture hell on earth

They bought the front row seats on Calvary

They are irrelevant to me

But I grieve for my sister

People of China

Do not forget do not forget

The children who died for you

Long live the Republic

Did we do anything after this

I've a feeling we did

We were watching T.V.

Watching T.V.

We were watching T.V.

Watching T.V.
