Franks, Michael - Charlie Chan In Egypt Lyrics




Please tell me if you can, Doc
What's causing my depression?
The fact we now engage in
Unprovoked aggression?
These kids we're sending out
To quote "defend our nation"
Come home completely shattered
A broken generation?

I feel like a stranger
In a strange land
Like I can't
Reveal my secret
Wherever I go
Wherever I am
I feel like
Charlie Chan in Egypt
Just like
Charlie Chan in Egypt

Can all this sit-com laughter
Still conceal our sadness
While down in Foggy Bottom
They manufacture madness?
Thanks to the World Wide Web
And its near complete dominion
We're suffocating in
The quicksand of opinion

I feel like a stranger
In a strange land
Like I can't
Reveal my secret
Wherever I go
Wherever I am
I feel like
Charlie Chan in Egypt
Just like
Charlie Chan in Egypt
...

Franks, Michael Charlie Chan In Egypt Comments
  1. Xtra Delite

    This song is a long drawn-out version to the tradition of jazz scatting. If scat had a cohesive form of words and lyrics, this song would be it. Pure genius to what he did with time. And, man, I mean totally thorough through to the end of the song.

  2. EyonDreams

    amazing

  3. sexntuna

    Is it just me, or does Michael Franks have the weirdest lyrics ever.

    ATANASIO MARTINEZ

    Maybe its just you. His lyrics are amazing. Its the rest of the World's mentality that's become mundane.
