Green Flower Street Lyrics

Uptown
It's murder out in the street
Uptown
It's murder out in the street
That's where I found my mandarin plum
That's where you'd be if you found one
Where the nights are bright
And joy is complete
Keep my squeeze on Green Flower Street
Since May
There's trouble most every night
Where once we danced our sweet routine
It reeks of wine and kerosene
Where the nights are bright
And joy is complete
Keep my squeeze on Green Flower Street
There's a special place for lovers
One we understand
There where neon bends in daylight sky
In that sunny room she soothes me
Cools me with her fan
We're drifting
A thousand years roll by
Lou Chang
Her brother he's burning with rage
Lou Chang
Her brother he's burning with rage
I'd like to know what's on his mind
He says hey buddy you're mot my kind
Where the nights are bright
And joy is complete
Keep my squeeze on Green Flower Street

The singer is a young white man in an ecstatic
timeless relationship with a Chinese girlfriend,
his 'Mandarin Plum, during a period of racial unrest
in some city.
Girlfriend's over-protective brother strongly objects
to author's presence in his sister's life, because, as
he says in a racially prejudiced slur
'Hey Buddy, you're not my kind'
