Diamond Geezer and China Girl

Diamond geezer can't pay no rent
Diamond geezer's money's spent
Diamond geezer's heart of gold
Leaves him homeless in the cold
Diamond geezer shares his dole
Diamond geezer shares his blow
Diamond geezer loves one and all
Except himself, so I've been told
Diamond geezer stands so tall
Diamond geezer stands alone
Diamond geezer understands
The cost of living as a man

China girl sits by the bar
China girl has travelled far
China girl is tapping her feet
To a complex double beat
China girl floats round the world
China girl is in a whirl
China girl will give it a go
When you ask she won't say no
China girl oft goes unheard
China girl speaks quiet words
China girl she understands
The pain of loving a pained man

Diamond geezer hard as rock
Deep inside is kinda soft
China girl a fragile pot
Deep inside is kinda tough
Diamond cuts and china cracks
And broken pieces won't fit back
But diamond geezer and china girl
Leave beautiful splinters in this world
