Come Back to Tokyo



Original audio

She said she needed a break
A little time to think
But then she went to Otaru
With some guy named Kazu
That she met at the bank



There's nothing wrong with Hokkaido
Except the snow and the trees
I really like Arudou Debito
And I'd love to see the beer and chocolate factories



So when you're done doing whatever
And when you're through doing whoever
You know eastern Honshu will be right here waiting for you....



Come back to Tokyo
It's just not the same since you went away
Before you learn a new dialect
And forget all about Roppongi
There's a seat for you at the sumo show
And I've got a love hotel saved
Besides there's not much else to do north of here anyway



I think I made a mistake
It's not that easy to take
She went to buy a bento
Then she took the train towards Ueno
Guess I'll sit here and wait



For her to say tadaima (I'd wish you'd say tadaima)
It shouldn't take very long (so long so long)
I bet she misses Tsukiji
And the view of Mt. Fuji but I could be wrong



So when you're done doing whatever
And when you're through doing whoever
You know eastern Honshu will be right here waiting for you....



Come back to Tokyo
It's just not the same since you went away
I bet you missed your train
Or rode right on through Atami
There's a seat for you at the sumo show
And I've got a love hotel saved
Besides there's not much else to do north of here anyway



Ayumi Hamasaki wants you back
Hello Kitty wants you back
JAXA wants you back
And the bijin want you back
And Harajuku wants you back
And Suntory wants you back



I got a premonition
I'm taking a petition
And all 区's are gonna sign



Come back to Tokyo
It's just not the same since you went away
Before you learn a new dialect
And forget all about Roppongi
There's a seat for you at the sumo show
And I've got a love hotel saved



Come back to Tokyo
It's just not the same since you went away
Before you learn a new dialect
And forget all about Roppongi
There's a seat for you at the sumo show
And I've got a love hotel saved
Besides there's not much else to do north of here anyway
Besides there's not much else to do north of here anyway
Besides there's not much else to do north of here anyway


Any chance of getting Texans like Chuck Norris and Lance Armstrong out to support (or run in) the Tokyo Marathon? I need you guys there at the critical moments! Com'n....
