The complete lyrics - all in good time

27 Woman from Tokyo

(Blackmore, Gillan, Glover, Lord, Paice)
Z albumu Deep Purple, Who Do We Think We Are

Slowa sa eufemistyczne ; utwor nie jest w cale o kobiecie, ale o ekscytacji i oczekiwaniu na nasza pierwsza podroz do Japonii, ktora okazala sie cudowna przygoda w czasach kiedy kultury byly mniej 'rozcienczone' transportem i innymi narzedziami komunikacji znanymi nam dzisiaj. Byla to egzotyczna, pionierska, nigdy niezapomniania podroz.

W tym kontekscie slowa prawdopodobnie nie wymagaja wyjasnienia.

Woman from Tokyo byla jedna z dwoch piosenek nagranych i wydanych z dlugiej i trudnej sesji w Rzymie; ta druga to Painted Horse.

Woman From Tokyo

(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice)

Fly into the rising sun,
Faces, smiling everyone
Yeah, she is a whole new tradition
I feel it in my heart

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She's so good to me

Talk about her like a Queen
Dancing in a Eastern Dream
Yeah, she makes me feel like a river
That carries me away

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She's so good to me

But I'm at home and I just don't belong ...

So far away from the garden we love
She is what moves in the soul of a dove
Soon I shall see just how black was my night
When we're alone in Her City of light

Rising from the neon gloom
Shining like a crazy moon
Yeah, she turns me on like a fire
I get high

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She's so good to me
