lyrics

“In which a naive tourist earns herself a one-way ticket to a Chinese detention complex.”

Sue walked around
Smile on her face
West-Beijing airport
Was a wonderful place

Plenty of shoppin’
Prizes a droppin’
While the planes rose into the air
It was extraordinaire

Welcome to Customs
Can we check your bags
You see one of them’s moving
And I think I see legs

You know it’s illegal
To smuggle small people
Animals and Asian chairs
Put your hands in the air

Welcome to the Ming Zhao paradise
Where the kicks are for free
The restrooms are communist
So you share them with three

Take your time to browse the menu
You can pick your own disease

You’ll see that our service is very nice
You may pick how we whip
There’s plenty mosquitos
For the entire trip

Everybody’s loving our regime

Flash back some hours
To the animal shop
If you’re in Beijing
‘Tis the place you must stop

Sue bought Chihuahuas
Three Dalai Lamas
And a wagonload of Asian stools
Now we know she’s a fool

Welcome to the Ming Zhao paradise
Where the kicks are for free
The restrooms are communist
So you share them with three

Take your time to browse the menu
you can pick your own disease

You’ll see that our service is very nice
You may pick how we whip
There’s plenty mosquitos
For the entire trip

Everybody’s loving our regime

At night you hear the chains a-janglin’
The muted screams you know so well
It reeks of sulphur
Of fire and brimstone
It’s oh so swell!
