As we begin our Family Holidays to Thailand and arrive in the City of Bangkok, I could not help but think about this once ever so popular smash hit song … ‘One Night in Bangkok.’

I simply could not get this song out of my mind and thanks to the internet, it was easily found on Youtube.

I thought it would fit right in nicely as I begin writing about our recent visit to Bangkok.

Here is the original ‘One Night in Bangkok’ video for you to enjoy!


 

For some of you, like me, I remember this from my earlier post teen years when it was a hit on the pop charts and when music videos were just getting off the ground.

For those who do not remember this, take a step back to the early 80’s and see what music and videos were like almost 30 years ago!

Enjoy the One Night in Bangkok video and sing along with lyrics below!

This song is definitely one that stays with you and will having you humming the tune when you least expect it!  Here are the song’s lyrics for you to copy and paste for those that like to sing along!

One night in Bangkok 1024x768 Original One Night In Bangkok Lyrics And VideoOne Night in Bangkok Lyrics:

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can’t be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

Bangkok, Oriental Setting
But the city don’t know what the city is getting
The creme de la creme of the chess world
In a show with everything but Yul Brynner

Time flies, doesn’t seem a minute
since the Tirolean spa had the chess boards in it
All change, don’t you know that when you
Play at this level there’s no ordinary venue

It’s Iceland, or the Philippines, or Hastings
Or….or this place!

One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster
The bars are temples but their pearls ain’t free
You’ll find a god in every golden cloister
And if you’re lucky, then the god’s a she
I can feel an angel sliding up to me

One town’s very like another
When your head’s down over your pieces, brother
(It’s a drag, it’s a bore, it’s really such a pity
To be looking at the board
not looking at the city)
Whattaya mean?!
You’ve seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town

Tea, girls, warm and sweet, sweet
Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite

Get tied, you’re talking to a tourist
Whose every move’s among the purest
I get my kicks ABOVE the waistline, sunshine!

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can’t be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

Siam’s gonna be the witness
To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
This grips me more than would a muddy old river
or reclining Buddha
Thank God I’m only watching the game, controlling it
I don’t see you guys rating
The kind of mate I’m contemplating
I’d let you watch, I would invite you
But the queens WE use would not excite you.
So, you better go back to your bars, your temples…
your “massage parlors”…

One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster
The bars are temples but their pearls ain’t free
You’ll find a god in every golden cloister
A little flesh, a little history
I can feel an angel sliding up to me

One night in Bangkok makes the hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can’t be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me
