TOKYO JOE
(Dick Callan)
MATCHBOX (MAGNET 006-64351, 1981)

I'm Tokyo Joe and I'm gonna let you know
About the best thing that ever hit town
Hurry to the street where the people meet
They all stare when I lay it down

I'm the man to make you feel alright
All day and all of the night
Now's the time to come up and see me
I can make like coal on ice

Rock 'n' roll from dusk till dawn
I take my women neat
Wake up in the papers but I don't care
I always land on my feet

I'm the man to make you feel alright
All day and all of the night
Now's the time to come up and see me
I can make like coal on ice

Cars and chicks, that'll see me stay [*]
I can take on any newcomers
I've been a kingpin since I don't know when
But I'm well ahead of the runners

I'm the man to make you feel alright
All day and all of the night
Now's the time to come up and see me
I can make like coal on ice

Drive my Chevy at the speed of light
Nothing gets in my way
Shooting beer through the night all night
It's the only way to play

I'm Tokyo Joe
I'm Tokyo Joe

I'm Tokyo Joe and I'm gonna let you know
About the best thing that ever hit town
Hurry to the street where the people meet
They all stare when I lay it down

I'm the man to make you feel alright
All day and all of the night
Now's the time to come up and see me
I can make like coal on ice
I can make like coal on ice
I can make like coal on ice
